Top Ten Tuesday – August 16, 2016


[Top 10 Tuesday is a book blog meme hosted by the wonderful The Broke and the Bookish because who doesn’t love top 10 lists!]

It’s time for another Top Ten! This week’s topic is Ten Books Set in Canada.

When I was a child, my parents would pack our bags and take my sister and I on trips around Canada. I’ve stuffed my face with lobster in PEI, shopped at Simons in Montreal, hiked up Grouse Mountain in Vancouver, and white water rafted in Ottawa. Canada has such a diverse geography and interesting history, which makes for amazing literature. Plus, who can argue with a country that has great writers like Atwood, Findley, Ondaatje, and Martel. Here are my top ten books I’ve read or on my TBR*:


A House in the Sky by Amanda Lindhout


Hey Nostradamus! by Douglas Coupland


Not Wanted on the Voyage* by Timothy Findley


Fall On Your Knees by Ann-Marie MacDonald


Away by Jane Urquhart


Sunshine Sketches of a Little Town by Stephen Leacock


Life of Pi by Yann Martel


In the Skin of a Lion by Michael Ondaatje


Alias Grace by Margaret Atwood


Anne of Green Gables series by LM Montgomery
