  5. "The Last Graduate" by Naomi Novik.This book is the highly anticipated sequel to Novik's "A Deadly Education" and follows protagonist Galadriel "El" Higgins as she navigates her final year at the Scholomance, a magical school where students must fight for survival against malevolent creatures.
