Hey YA Readers!
I’m Erica, another editor at Book Riot, and I’ll be filling in for Kelly while she’s on vacay. I don’t know about you, but I’m racing to finish all my spooky books before the end of October. I mean, I can and will read them anytime, but reading them during spooky season just hits different, you know?
Anywho, I’ve got a bookish goodie, new paperbacks out, and some YA news! Let’s go

The Bones of Ruin by Sarah Raughley
Iris is used to being regarded as strange. As an African tightrope dancer in Victorian England, she is always made to feel like a spectacle. If only people really knew how strange she was. Like how she can’t die, for instance. Knowing this oddity about herself and little else, she’s obsessed with learning about herself. That’s why when the dark and mysterious Adam Temple lets on that he knows something of who she is, she’s intrigued. But his help comes with a price, namely competing as his champion in a tournament where people with fantastical abilities compete to become the leader of the upcoming apocalypse.
The Nobleman’s Guide to Scandal and Shipwrecks by Mackenzi Lee
Here is the final book in the Montague Siblings trilogy. This time, we follow Adrian Motague, a political writer making a name for himself. But he has a secret: he has the same mental illness his mother struggled with for years. Once he finds a relic of hers — a broken spyglass — the past descends on him and he meets the older brother he never knew about. To find answers about his and his mother’s past, he’ll travel pirate courts, Amsterdam’s canals, and uncharted waters.
