Canada Reads 2014 Top 10

Today I was going to announce my first book for my CanLit Project, but then I noticed that The Canada Reads Top 10 list came out.

Go to http://www.cbc.ca/books/canadareads/about/index.html to find out more about Canada Reads, including all the entries for this year and past years.

For now, here is the Top 10 list:

  1. Anil’s Ghost by Michael Ondaatje
  2. Annabel by Kathleen Winter
  3. Cockroach by Rawi Hage
  4. Half-Blood Blues by Esi Edugyan
  5. Little Brother by Cory Doctorow
  6. October 1970 by Louis Hamelin
  7. The Orenda by Joseph Boyden
  8. A Sunday at the Pool in Kigali by Gil Courtemanche
  9. What the Body Remembers by Shauna Singh Baldwin
  10. The Year of the Flood by Margaret Atwood

So far, I have only read The Year of the Flood, but I have a couple more of them sitting in my to-read pile.  Which ones have you read, and what do you think of the list?

Which are the best choices for the top 5 novels that could change the nation?

    I’ve only read Half-Blood Blues so far. I did manage to read all 5 Canada Reads choices from the last one, maybe I will this time too.
