Harry Potter & The Cursed Child 
Parts 1 & 2
JK Rowling
John Tiffany
Jack Thorne
It was always difficult being Harry Potter and it isn't much easier now that he is an overworked employee of the Ministry of Magic, a husband and father of three school-age children. While Harry grapples with a past that refuses to stay where it belongs, his youngest son Albus must struggle with the weight of a family legacy he never wanted. As past and present fuse ominously, both father and son learn the uncomfortable truth: sometimes, darkness comes from unexpected places.

A Great Reckoning
Louise Penny
"When an intricate old map is found stuffed into the walls of the bistro in Three Pines, it at first seems no more than a curiosity. But the closer the villagers look, the stranger it becomes. Given to Armand Gamache as a gift the fist day of his new job, the map eventually leads him to shattering secrets. To an old friend and older adversary. It leads to the former Chief of Homicide for the Sauretae du Quaebec to places even he is afraid to go. But must. And there he finds four young cadets in the Sauretae Academy and a dead professor."

The Jealous Kind
James Lee Bourke
From New York Times bestselling author James Lee Burke an atmospheric, coming-of-age story set in 1952 Texas, as the Korea War rages. 
On its surface, life in Houston is as you would expect: drive-in restaurants, souped-up cars, jukeboxes, teenagers discovering their sexuality. But beneath the glitz and superficial normalcy, a class war has begun, and it is nothing like the conventional portrayal of the decade. Against this backdrop Aaron Holland Broussard discovers the poignancy of first love and a world of violence he did not know existed.
