The Shadowhunters books make up the universe that keeps on giving. If you love to revisit the same stories, same characters, same familiar scenes, these are the books for you.

5. If you love watching true crime — I Killed Zoe Spanos by Kit Frick
This thrilling read layers police interviews, traditional prose, and a podcast by two teens trying to uncover the truth. Told from the perspective of an unreliable narrator, it’ll keep true crime fans turning the pages as quickly as they can.
