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!”

Books: Top 100 Science Fiction and Fantasy Books

NPR listeners voted for the Top 100 Science Fiction and Fantasy Books. This list is very thorough and highlights the amazing wealth of great stories in the Science Fiction and Fantasy genre. I love this, I must read the books on the list that I have not gotten to yet. Well done NPR!

Film: My Most Anticipated Summer Movies

Both movies contain Charlize Theron, coincidence? I think not.

1) Prometheus

2) Snow White and the Huntsman

Both previews give me chills!
