Canada-Reads 2014

Canada Reads 2014

I know, this post has been a long time coming as it took longer than I anticipated to read the book nominations for this year but here we are! My final post on the Canada Reads 2014 series.

Overall, the selections this year were extremely diverse; I appreciated their individuality and the talent displayed by each author. I am going to keep this post short by ranking the books in order of my preference. I must say, ranking these was very difficult! Each will link back to my full reviews on each of the books. So without further ado:

1) Annabel by Kathleen Winter

2) The Year of the Flood by Margaret Atwood

3) The Orenda by Joseph Boyden

4) Cockroach by Rawi Hage

5) Half-Blood Blues by Esi Edugyan

I am a dweeb with a dash of geek who has a BA in English and Awesomeness. I have an obsession with running and cats and I also love to read, write and listen to angry music. I value learning for the sake of learning, proper grammar and the touch and smell of a real book. I love to laugh and make my friends and family laugh, though I can't always say that I'm appropriate but I wouldn't be who I am today without them.
