Book Riot Recommends
At Book Riot, I work on the New Books! email, the All the Books! podcast about new releases, and the Book Riot Insiders New Release Index. I am very fortunate to get to read a lot of upcoming titles, and I’m delighted to share a couple with you each week!
Bonfire by Krysten Ritter (Nov. 7, Crown): This is a really solid mystery from the star of Jessica Jones! An environmental lawyer returns to her small hometown to work on a case, but it quickly drawn back in to a decade-old scandal involving her now-missing former best friend. It reminded me a bit of Sharp Objects, my favorite Gillian Flynn.
The Murders of Molly Southbourne by Tade Thompson (Oct. 3, Tor.com): If you like your science fiction on the scary side, this is the perfect book for you! Molly Southbourne learns at an early age that she’s not like other girls: she spawns new versions of herself every time she bleeds. And those versions inevitably go rogue and try to kill her, so she has to spend her days offing evil versions of herself. IT’S SO INTENSE!
