There are a lot of wonderful things about BookCon, but the best one is, well, the books! We came away from the weekend with dozens of books, but here are five we’re particularly excited about – and we think you will be too!

Last week, the two biggest book extravaganzas of the year descended upon New York City – BookExpo, a conference for press, booksellers, and publishing insiders that previews the fall’s most anticipated book releases, and BookCon, a convention for all those who love to read!
Man, did MuggleNet have a great time at New York Comic Con! We helped unveil the Wizarding World Loot Crate and interviewed the cast of some of our favorite shows, and our very own “SpeakBeasty” even hosted a panel! For those of you who weren’t able to attend, you can now enjoy NYCC from afar through our galleries!
It’s still two months until the first season of “The Magicians” premieres on Syfy, but the cast and crew are already making the press rounds, meeting fans and promoting the sure-to-be-awesome pilot. MuggleNet was lucky enough to catch up with executive producers and writers Sera Gamble and John McNamara at New York Comic Con, along with cast members Jason Ralph, Stella Maeve, Olivia Taylor Dudley, Hale Appleman, Arjun Gupta, and Summer Bishil.
It’s hard to believe that this past weekend New York Comic Con celebrated its tenth anniversary – and we were there to capture that sweet, sweet, exhausting Con magic just for you. We’ve got a lot of great coverage coming up in the next few days (Can you say “Shadowhunters”? How about “LEGO Marvel”? Plus more!), but for now we’ll show you some of the sights of the Show Floor and beyond!
