We love browsing every list from major publications, websites like Book Riot and especially picks from our staff and patrons. Check out some of CLP’s staff favorites below and be sure to browse our full lists here: Fiction and Nonfiction. You can even make your own list of picks in the catalog!

Flor can predict when people are going to die and has decided to hold a living wake in honor of herself. She refuses to tell anyone in her family what this means in terms of her mortality, setting the stage for this fantastical family novel.
This one is blowing up on BookTok so you might already know about it, but it’s the story of a young woman who was raised to spend her life behind closed doors as a scribe, but now must become a dragon rider or die trying – literally. It’s like the best part of Eragon and Harry Potter, but it is not for children! Content warning for spicy scenes and lots of cussing.
