Check out the ORCA blog! So many good titles on these lists. I have read a number of them (not all, by any means ;) and enjoyed them. Just remember, these are going to be among the more popular titles out there. If you reserve them from the library, you might have to wait a bit before it’s your turn.

Happy reading!
