I am turning into a Canadian book junkie! I love discovering new authors in Canada and my collection is just growing and growing every month. Canada is full of such amazing talent when it comes to writers that everyone should be reading Canada! And what better way to get yourself to read than the Canadian Book Challenge?
This challenge is hosted by The Indextrious Reader and here’s what it’s about:
Created by John Mutford at the Book Mine Set a decade ago and hosted by him for the past 10 years, the Canadian Book Challenge is an annual online reading challenge in which participants from Canada and around the world aim to read and review 13 or more Canadian books in a one year span: Canada Day to Canada Day. Reviews must be posted online and participants are asked to share links to their reviews with other participants.
Canadian books can include any genre or form (picture books, poetry, novels, non-fiction, plays, anthologies, graphic novels, cookbooks, etc), can be written by Canadian authors (by birth or immigration) or about Canadians. Ultimately, participants must decide for themselves whether or not something fits the description of Canadian.
I know I’ll plan to read more than 13 books, but I just love anything that will connect me to other Canadian readers and help me discover new Canadian authors!
I plan to read by my mood as the year goes on, but here are some of the Canadian books on my shelf that I want to read for this challenge:
