NPR’s #BookYourTrip Summer Reading List

NPR Books has done something a little different with this year’s summer reading list; they’ve decided to organise their book recommendations by different modes of transportation.

I contributed 8 mini-reviews in their Car, Time, Hot Air Balloon, Rocket Ship, and Miscellaneous sections, as follow:

Reservation Blues by Sherman Alexie (Car)

The Salt Roads by Nalo Hopkinson (Miscellaneous)

Saga by Brian K. Vaughan and Fiona Staples (Rocket Ship)

Adaptation by Malinda Lo (Rocket Ship)

Highfell Grimoires by Langley Hyde (Hot Air Balloon)

To Say Nothing of the Dog by Connie Willis (Time)

Howl’s Moving Castle by Diana Wynne Jones (Miscellaneous)

Prospero’s Children by Jan Siegel (Miscellaneous)

These are all books I’ve genuinely loved and highly recommend. I had a brilliant time revisiting them for these write-ups, and hope you’ll find some to your taste! If you want to play along with NPR on Twitter and make your own recommendations, the relevant hashtag is #BookYourTrip.
