my favourite canadian books

This week's Booking Through Thursday question asked about favourite foreign books. I am pretty sure it's an American site so I answered with books that were neither American nor Canadian-see here for the list. I had a new visitor to my site, a fellow Canadian with an interesting blog of her own-and on her reply to that question she mentions that she can't think of any Canadian books that she loves. Well let me help  you Ms. C!!! Here is a list of my favourite Canadian books!!
  •  The Book of Negroes by Lawrence Hill
  • The Gargoyle by Andrew Davidson
  • The Nine Lives of Charlotte Taylor - Sally Armstrong
  • The Summer Tree - Guy Gavriel Kay
  • The Cellist of Sarajevo - Stephen Galloway
  • Good to a Fault - Marina Endicott
  • L.M. Montgomery's Anne of Green Gable series
  •  Come, thou tortoise by Jessica Grant was amusing
As for Canadian short stories, (I've recently discovered I like short stories)
  • What Boys Like by Amy Jones
  • Once by Rebecca Rosenblum
SEE!! SEE!!! Plenty of amazing Canadian fiction!! If you have any other MUST READ Canadian books please comment below. Unless you suggest Miriam Toews. I'm sorry I just don't like her work.

  1. This is awesome, Sara :) Thanks for creating the list, I'm going to have to explore these books as soon as I can... or, most likely, when my university semester is over in December haha.
