ALA The Reading List

Type: Preset list created by sturlington

Description: Established in 2007 by the CODES section of RUSA, The Reading List Council seeks to highlight outstanding genre fiction that merits special attention by general adult readers and the librarians who work with them. These are all the winners and shortlisted books since 2008. NOTE: I stopped updating this list for the 2021 awards and started new lists divided by genre at that time.

Based on bookaward: Reading List Award shortlist
