When you've streamed the Netflix movie for the fifth time and are pining for more Lara Jean Covey, pick up the book it's based on! Full of family, heart, cute boys, teenage mishaps, delicious cookies, and a fantastic Korean-American heroine, To All the Boys I've Loved Before is the perfect read for a cozy chair and a mug of hot chocolate. (Plus, there are two sequels!)

Sadie's sister was murdered, and she knows who did it. She decides to track down the killer herself after the cops' unsatisfactory investigation, but goes missing along the way. Sadie's narrative is intertwined with that of Wes, who is following her trail and making a Serial-like podcast as he tries to find her--this book is tense, twisty, and heart-wrenching and perfect for fans of true crime. Best book I've read this year.

This is the 18th-century women-in-science pirate girl gang you've always dreamed of, tearing down ideas of patriarchy and colonialism as they swashbuckle their way across Europe and the Atlantic. Felicity is fierce, funny, and whip-smart. I didn't think I could love a book as much as Gentleman's Guide, but this one is just as good--and it's a companion novel, so you can pick this one up even if you haven't read the first one yet!

Who knew middle grade could be so delightfully spooky? Arden does a wonderful job of anchoring increasingly fantastic (and scary) situations in fleshed-out, vivid characters; readers will surely grow invested in Ollie's journey to find freedom, family, and a way out of the grip of fearful scarecrows!

When I first came across this webcomic, I was not expecting to love it as much as I do. It's about college hockey, something I care very little about. But it quickly won me over. Bitty is a figure skater from Georgia who ends up on the Samwell Hockey team. He has to learn to navigate real hockey with real checking while struggling with his sexuality, college culture, and baking enough pies to feed a small army. This comic is both delightful and heartwarming.

Merci has a lot of things going on as she enters sixth grade--bossy Edna Santos has a crush on her school-assigned Sunshine Buddy, her beloved grandfather Lolo is forgetting things, and to top it off, she's not allowed to try out for the school soccer team! At least her family is on her side. Meg Medina perfectly captures the worst and best of middle school in this satisfying and extremely relatable coming of age tale.

A darkly comedic middle-grade novel that will probably appeal to fans of "The Green Ribbon," both children and adults who enjoy children's fiction. I would probably not recommend for the easily queasy.
