This year was filled with many great, new book releases. So why not catch up on the best books of 2014 during your winter break? To make the selection process easier for you, visit NPR’s book concierge, which lists 250 titles selected by NPR staff and book critics. Each book has been tagged with various categories so you can filter the recommendations based on your interests. Are you a music lover that enjoys memoirs? Then try Carlos Santana’s autobiography titled The Universal Tone: bringing My Story To Light. Are you into YA lit and graphic novels? The app recommends The Wrenchies by Farel Dalrymple. Perhaps you like mysteries with a science fiction slant. Then check out The Peripheral: A Novel by William Gibson.
With over 20 filters, there are many ways to narrow down the titles you can add to your reading list. You could even use this list to generate gift ideas for your friends and family this holiday season.
