The SecUnit who (secretly) refers to itself as "Murderbot" hacked its own governor module, so it could go rogue and kill all the humans if it wanted, but it would rather spend its time watching Sanctuary Moon. Unfortunately, its humans keep getting themselves into danger. Even more unfortunately, Murderbot actually finds itself caring about these humans. It's hard being a heartless killing machine when you have feelings.

The mermaids in this book are sea creatures from the depths of the Mariana Trench, and they do not want to be a part of your world.

Read if you want to be terrified of the sea forever.

Every Heart a Doorway

We've all read the fairy tales... a young child goes through a wardrobe or falls down a rabbit hole and shows up somewhere else. Seanan McGuire asks the question: what comes next? How does this incredibly diverse group used to living in magical worlds cope with being forced back into the mundane one? And then, of course, people start dying. With McGuire's signature brilliant worldbuilding and beautiful writing, this might be my new favorite book.
