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:
- Anil’s Ghost by Michael Ondaatje
- Annabel by Kathleen Winter
- Cockroach by Rawi Hage
- Half-Blood Blues by Esi Edugyan
- Little Brother by Cory Doctorow
- October 1970 by Louis Hamelin
- The Orenda by Joseph Boyden
- A Sunday at the Pool in Kigali by Gil Courtemanche
- What the Body Remembers by Shauna Singh Baldwin
- 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?
