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 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.
