Roswell New Mexico

After the success of Riverdale, CW has debuted its newest eerie reboot, Roswell, New Mexico, perfect for fans who remember the original series from 2002, or anyone who just looks into the night sky and wants to believe…. But because you have to wait a whole week between episodes, you’ll need something to keep the supernatural vibe high while you wait. Or maybe you have a different otherworldly fave. No matter what you’re watching, we’ve got the books that’ll make you say “take me to my (E) reader!”

The Outsider

The Outsider

by Melinda Metz

For Roswell, New Mexico fans:

You don’t have to go far to find the perfect fit: the original show spawned a series of books, Roswell High. In the first novel, The Outsider, high schooler Liz has a crush on aloof hottie Max, but he has a secret identity she can’t know about—until the day he magically saves her from certain death. (Hmm, think Stephenie Meyer was a Roswell fan?) If you’re convinced there are aliens in our midst, this series is for you.

Prisoner of Night

Prisoner of Night

by J.R. Ward

For The Vampire Diaries fans:

If you love a sexy bloodsucker, then download Prisoner of Night by mega-bestselling author J. R. Ward. Her Black Dagger Brotherhood is like a vampire biker gang, and the bonds between them are as strong as the connections they share with the humans helping them fight soulless demons who hide among the living. Unlike in The Outsider, the sexy times here are definitely not approved for high school students.

Labyrinth Lost (Brooklyn Brujas)

Labyrinth Lost (Brooklyn Brujas)

by Zoraida Cordova

For Chilling Adventures of Sabrina fans:

The modern witch is more than green skin and a broomstick; in fact, she might just be the girl next door. And in the case of Labyrinth Lost by Zoraida Cordova, “next door” is Brooklyn, and the girl is Alex (descendant of a long line of brujas), who tries to deny her magical heritage—until she can’t. Entwining magic and drama with questions of family and identity, this one has more than meets the eye.

The Troop

The Troop

by Nick Cutter

For Stranger Things fans:

The first scare of Stranger Things is, of course, the look at life before cell phones. But the second is the Demogorgon. Is it a human? A lizard? A carnivorous plant? By the time you figure it out, you’ve probably been eaten. If you can’t get enough of nightmare monsters like this, don’t miss Nick Cutter’s The Troop. A group of Scouts heads into the wilderness for a weekend camping trip, but there’s no merit badge for the survival skills needed in this uniquely horrifying tale.

A Darker Shade of Magic

A Darker Shade of Magic

by V. E. Schwab

For The Magicians fans:

Not only do you already know about the Lev Grossman book that spawned this show, you’ve already read the whole trilogy, so we’ve got another amazing series for you: V.E. Schwab’s The Shades of Magic. Beginning with A Darker Shade of Magic, the author serves up a world in which rare magicians roam a multiverse of Londons, offering power, pageantry, and danger.
