If you're anything like us, you've had your nose buried in a few more books than usual. With our selections beginning to run low, we turned to Jen Murvin with Pagination Bookshop for some of her latest recommendations to restock our shelves. With options for adults, teens and kids, there's a book here for everyone in the family.
Book Recommendations for Adults
The Splendid and the Vile
By Erik Larson
Murvin recommends Erik Larson's latest for anyone who loves nonfiction and history. This story of Churchill reads like fiction and draws on diary entries, archival documents and some once-secret intelligence reports.
The City We Became
By N.K. Jemisin
Take a trip to New York City with this novel about culture, identity, magic and myths. "This book is the first book in Hugo Award-winning author N.K. Jemison’s newest fantasy series," Murvin says. "Perfect for lovers of speculative fiction."
The Gnome Stories
By Ander Monson
Support independent press with this offbeat choice that focuses on stories of 11 characters who find purpose in their work. Murvin recommends this option for readers who enjoy short story form, experimental writing, and quirky, heartfelt narratives.
