I have completely sucked with challenges lately, but when I saw this one over on Marie’s blog, I knew I had to sign up! I have a TON of Canadian authored books on my shelves and absolutely love Canadian literature.
The Canadian Reading Challenge is hosted by Marie, over at Ramblings of a Daydreamer, Sarah from Workaday Reads, and Patricia Lynne, YA Author. This is a great challenge to bring light to the many, many wonderful Canadian authors that are out there! Here’s what the purpose of the challenge is:
To bring attention to Canadian authors and show the love! I’m sure a lot of people will be surprised that some of their favorite authors are Canadian, or that authors they’ve heard of but haven’t read yet are Canadian.
The goal of the challenge is to read any books — there’s no minimum limit — either by a Canadian author, or a book set in Canada. I hope to read at least three from my shelves. Here are some of the books I’ll be choosing from (though the list could definitely change!). I also have some Kelley Armstrong (LOTS of her stuff!) and some L. M. Montgomery and Esi Edugyen:
I’ll try and update with the books I’ve read for the challenge, as well as links to my reviews!
