Solitaire by Alice Oseman. In case you’re wondering, this is not a love story. My name is Tori Spring. I like to sleep, and I like to blog. Last year – before all that stuff with Charlie and before I had to face the harsh realities of A-Levels and university applications and the fact that one day I really will have to start talking to people – I had friends. Things were very different, I guess, but that’s all over now. Now there’s Solitaire. And Michael Holden. I don’t know what Solitaire are trying to do, and I don’t care about Michael Holden. I really don’t. Solitaire takes place after Alice Oseman’s graphic novel Heartstopper, which follows Nick and Charlie’s journey and how they met.
I was Born for This by Alice Oseman. For Angel Rahimi, only one thing matters: The Ark – a pop-rock trio of teenage boys who are taking the world by storm. Being part of The Ark’s fandom has given her everything she loves – her friend Juliet, her dreams and her place in the world. Jimmy Kaga-Ricci owes everything to The Ark. He’s their frontman – and playing in a band with his mates is all he ever dreamed of doing. However, dreams don’t always turn out the way you think and when Jimmy and Angel are unexpectedly thrust together, they find out how strange and surprising reality can be. This is a funny, wise, and heartbreakingly true coming of age novel. I Was Born for This is a stunning reflection of modern teenage life, and the power of believing in something – especially yourself.
Radio Silence by Alice Oseman. What if everything you set yourself up to be was wrong? Frances has always been a study machine with one goal – elite university. Nothing will stand in her way; not friends, not a guilty secret – not even the person she is on the inside. Then Frances meets Aled, the shy genius behind her favourite podcast. He unlocks the door to Real Frances and for the first time she experiences true friendship, unafraid to be herself. But when the fragile trust between them is broken, Frances is caught between who she was and who she longs to be. Now Frances knows that she has to confront her past. To confess why Carys disappeared… Frances is going to need every bit of courage she has.

However, when his mother is found stabbed before an award ceremony and his sister is nowhere to be found, Peter is dragged into a world of espionage and violence where state and family secrets become intertwined. Armed only with his extraordinary analytical skills, Peter may just discover that his biggest weakness is his greatest strength.
Serpent & Dove by Shelby Mahurin follows Louise le Blanc, a witch, who two years ago fled her coven and took refuge in the city of Cesarine, where she has forsaken her magic and lives off of whatever she can steal.

A wicked stunt forces them together into an impossible marriage and as feelings begin to develop, a choice must be made that will decide both their fates. For her enemies will bring a fate worse than fire.
The Ten Thousand Doors of January by Alix E. Harrow is set in the early 1900s and follows January Scaller, a ward of the wealthy Mr. Locke. In a sprawling mansion filled with peculiar treasures and artifacts, January doesn’t feel any different from them: carefully maintained, mostly ignored and completely out of place. That’s until she finds a strange book. This book contains the scents of other world inside it and tells tales of love, adventure and danger. Each turn of the page reveals its truths to January and a world that becomes entwined in her own. Lush and richly imagined, a tale of impossible journeys, unforgettable love, and the enduring power of stories awaits in Alix E. Harrow’s spellbinding debut – step inside and discover its magic.
Kingdom of Souls by Rena Barron. Arrah yearns for magic of her own. But every year she fails to call forth her ancestral powers. Born into a family of powerful witchdoctors, her ambitious mother watches on with growing disapproval. There is one thing Arrah hasn’t tried yet, a deadly last resort: trading years of her life for scraps of magic. When the Kingdom’s children begin to disappear, Arrah is desperate to find the culprit. However, she uncovers something much worse. The long-imprisoned Demon King is waking. If he rises, his hunger for souls will bring the world to its knees… unless Arrah pays the price for the magic to stop him.
