Thirteen favourite Canadian reads of 2018: 12/12/18
As the year is wrapping up, it's time to talk about favourite reads. I'm going to do things differently this year and talk about the types of books I feature. Tuesdays, for instance, I review a book by a Canadian author, or set in Canada, or somehow about Canada. I have family in Canada so it's my way of staying connected with them.
Typically when I post my lists, I go for an even dozen because I pick a favourite book from each month. Canada, though, gets a baker's dozen since it has thirteen provinces/territories. My reading, though, isn't one from each. My reading is primarily west coast (British Columbia) focused with Quebec coming in second. Two of the books are set in the Bay Area of California — near where I live — but the authors are Canadian.
Click on the titles to read the posted reviews. While most of the books were released this year, not all of them were. The oldest Canadian book I read this year, was actually published in 1851 (but it didn't make my list of favourites.
