NPR Books Concierge: Best Books of 2015

Behold this magnificent enterprise!


This is NPR’s guide to the Best Books of 2015. You can search by tag for something you’d like, or just browse aimlessly and gaze at the pretty covers. I do both.

Below are the recs I contributed — I want to single out Jennifer Larsen’s Future Perfect in particular since I didn’t get a chance to review it fully when it came out in October, but it was definitely moving and remarkable enough to make my list. Note that this isn’t my own personal complete list of the year’s Best Books — some of those got taken on by other reviewers, some had to be trimmed for logistics, some I hadn’t yet read by the time these were due — but it’s a good starting point!

Future Perfect by Jennifer Larsen

Shadowshaper by Daniel José Older

The Galaxy Game by Karen Lord

Sorcerer to the Crown by Zen Cho
