Everything's Trash, But It's Okay by Phoebe Robinson

Phoebe Robinson’s new collection of essays will make you laugh out loud and is a great tutorial on being trash but forgiving yourself for it while still being able to name the things that are #serioustrash. These essays get real about the sitch of our union—calling out nonintersectional feminists, internalized sexism, our workaholic culture, and toxic sosh meeds (social media). Written in classic Phoebe stream-of-consciousness style, this is the perfect antidote to the garbage fire of 2018. - Kelly

I Might Regret This by Abbi Jacobson

Abbi Jacobson (of Broad City fame) set off on a solo road trip from New York City to Los Angeles in an impulsive attempt to shake off heartache from a breakup. This quietly introspective and sweetly self-deprecating essay collection brings readers along on Jacobson’s cross-country trek and shows us that we’re never too old to figure out who we are. The raw honesty and startling vulnerability of this book took me by surprise, inspiring me to take stock of my own path. - Kelly

November Road by Lou Berney

This deliciously nuanced and layered mystery is a terrific book for Lou Berney fans and thrill-seekers.

In the House in the Dark of the Woods by Laird Hunt

Gothic and atmospheric, this book is a terrifying fever dream, an extended waking nightmare. It follows Goody, our unreliable narrator, as she gets lost in the woods and discovers what lies beyond the veil. Lurking behind Laird Hunt’s lush and evocative prose is a sense of dread that creeps up your spine as the story twists and writhes. It’s a haunted-woods tale full of wolves and witches—the brutal kind who eat children and steal your very soul. A perfect and easy-to-devour book to usher in Halloween or give you a fright any time of the year. Just be sure to read it with all the lights on. - Kelly

Social Creature by Tara Isabella Burton

This compulsively readable book is as much about NYC as it is about the two toxic friends who roam the city in pursuit of the next Thing -- party, selfie, gala, boy. It’s a wild and heart-pounding ride through private clubs and penthouses as Lavinia introduces Louise to a lifestyle any girl would kill for. A delicious blend of The Talented Mr. Ripley and Gossip Girl, you won't be able to put this down until the last bloody page. - Kelly

All the Ever Afters by Danielle Teller

There are two sides to every story, and this unique take on Cinderella offers an empathetic version of Agnes, the evil stepmother who looms so large in the fairy tale. Agnes recounts her own life of hardship and misfortune long before meeting Ella, and shows how their destructive relationship is rooted in more than just spite. Lushly written and so much more than a simple retelling, this will surely delight fans of Wicked and Uprooted. - Kelly

With such talents at work, Jenny Finn is sure to be beautifully crafted and promises a generous dose of Mignola’s trademark Lovecraftian horror: a plague that leaves bodies covered in tentacles, a serial killer slashing women at night, and a séance that reveals a horrible curse… - Kelly

What We Lose by Zinzi Clemmons

Reading this novel is truly a visceral experience. The story is about (of course) loss—of a parent, of a cultural identity, of innocence, of love—but even though it focuses on such palpable grief, you are never left hopeless. Each vignette of our narrator Thandi’s life is so raw and so real that I initially assumed it was a memoir! This debut is surely just the beginning of Clemmons’ literary stardom. - Kelly
