ALA The Reading List

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 in 2020.
