Canada Reads 2016 Shortlist

Apologies for the delayed post! Still adjusting to a bit a of a routine out here in Hong Kong. Even though I’m halfway around the world, I am happy to say that I am still going to have a bash at getting through this years Canada Reads 2016 shortlist! Even though it may affect my bank account this time around as I won’t be able to get any of these books out at the library here (I checked).

The theme this year is all about “starting over” and the panelists chose books that that they felt best represented  “the trials and tribulations of making a new start in life.”

  • Birdie by Tracey Lindberg
  • Bone and Bread by Saleema Nawaz
  • The Hero’s Walk by Anita Rau Radami
  • The Illegal by Lawrence Hill
  • Minster Without Portfolio by Michael Winter

The debate takes place March 21-24th! I should have most, if not all five of the books read by then and will do my best to have the reviews up as well.

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.
