Under the Radar Summer Reads

by Jesse M

TS Spivet coverSearching for something good to read this summer? Look no further than this post! NPR’s “books guru” (librarian Nancy Pearl) has a list of under the radar reads that she thinks deserve more attention than they’re getting. While we don’t have every title she recommends available in our catalog, we do have several of them, including Astoria by Peter Stark, The Selected Works of T.S. Spivet by Reif Larsen, and The Glass Sentence by S.E. Grove.

If that doesn’t satisfy your desire for book recommendations, check out another recent NPR summer reading list–All Aboard! A Reading List For Riding The Rails focuses on the journey, not the destination, featuring books involving transport by plane, train, car, boat, horse, balloon, rocketship, and even a giant peach!

Still need more reading lists? Take a look at Nancy Pearl’s trio of guides to what to read next: Book Lust, More Book Lust, and Book Lust To Go. Happy reading!
