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!

a line in the darkA Line in the Dark by Malinda Lo (Oct. 17, 2017, Dutton Books for Young Readers): When Jess Wong’s best friend, Angie, comes out to her, she doesn’t realize Jess has more than friend feelings for her. But it’s too late for Jess to do anything: Angie is already falling for Margot Adams, a girl at a nearby school. Just as Jess is coming to terms with being permanently friend zoned, Margot’s best friend disappears, and Jess and Angie are pulled into a tangled web of secrets and lies. This one is super twisty and super fun. And HOLY CATS, THAT COVER!

the rules of magicThe Rules of Magic by Alice Hoffman (Oct. 10, 2017): In case you hadn’t heard: there is a sequel to Practical Magic! Well, it’s more of a prequel, following the witchy Owens aunts as they grow up in the early 1960s. But still. It exists, two decades after the first book. And it’s GOOD! You don’t have to have read Practical Magic to follow the plot of this one, but you should! And if you’ve already read it, isn’t it time for a reread? Treat yourself to a little magic.
