What else I’ve been reading

It’s not only Canadian, eh?

No, friends. I am reading other things this year as well. Thought I’d give you a little run down in case you were wondering why I wasn’t a very frequent poster. Here’s a list of what I’ve read so far this year (yes, I am doing the #50BookPledge, though I’m a bit behind):

1. The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo by Steig Larsson
2. On a Cold Road: Tales of Adventure in Canadian Rock by Dave Bidini
3. Prisoner of Tehran by Marina Nemat
4. The Game by Ken Dryden
5. Something Fierce by Carmen Aguirre
6. Half Blood Blues by Esi Edugyan
7. The Fallen by Stephen Finucan
8. Flawless by Scott Andrew Selby
9. The Year of the Flood by Margaret Atwood
10. Oryx and Crake by Margaret Atwood
11. Irma Voth by Miriam Toews
12. The Book of Negroes by Lawrence Hill
13. A book I reviewed for Library Journal (am I supposed to keep this secret?)
14. The Book Thief by Markus Zusak
15. The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald
16. In the Skin of a Lion by Michael Ondaatje
17. February by Lisa Moore

So who knew hyperlinking everything (thought I was being helpful and providing interesting tidbits) looked so ghastly. Ah well. Click if you desire. Just finished February and now about half way through The Bone Cage by Angie Abdou. Many book reviews to come this week! Oh, and also I think that February is in line to be my favourite of the Canada Reads 10th Anniversary longlist…

    I've read 6 of those books! How did you like The Book Thief? That's been on my to-read list for years.

  2. I liked it a lot by the end, but it took me a while to get used to the narrative style. Also, the back said something like “should be on the shelf beside Anne Frank” and that's just preposterous so I felt like it was going to be more epic than it was. I suggest reading it quickly if you can. Whenever I put it down for a day or two it was hard to pick up and get into again. Do read it, though!
