Books: NPR Summer Books 2013

I love the NPR Summer Books list. I look forward to it every year.
Most of my reading list comes from NPR recommendations.

The books I have added to my reading list this year (and the NPR critics’ list they came from):

  1. The Ocean at the End of the Lane (from Secrets Of The Universe: 5 Great SF And Fantasy Summer Reads)
  2. The Shining Girls (from Secrets Of The Universe: 5 Great SF And Fantasy Summer Reads)
  3. Love Minus Eighty (from Secrets Of The Universe: 5 Great SF And Fantasy Summer Reads)
  4. We are all Completely Beside Ourselves (from Secrets Of The Universe: 5 Great SF And Fantasy Summer Reads)
  5. Missing Links and Secret Histories (from Secrets Of The Universe: 5 Great SF And Fantasy Summer Reads)
  6. I Await the Devil’s Coming (from Lost And Found: 5 Forgotten Classics Worth Revisiting)
  7. Waiting for the Barbarians (from Making Art From Art: 5 Nonfiction Reads For Summer)
  8. The Curiosity (from Summer Adventure: 5 Thrilling, Chilling, Far-Ranging Reads)
  9. Exercises in Style (from Lost And Found: 5 Forgotten Classics Worth Revisiting)
  10. One Thousand and One Nights (from Lost And Found: 5 Forgotten Classics Worth Revisiting)

Obviously the entire list of SF/Fantasy reads makes up the first 5.
And, typically, as I read the description of each one I thought to myself “OMG That sounds really good!”
