CHALLENGE: The 9th Canadian Book Challenge

The 9th Canadian Book Challenge hosted by John at The Book Mine Set

I guess I forgot to sign up for this challenge on Canada Day last year. Luckily it is a challenge that runs from July 1 til June 30th. The goal is to read 13 books (for the 13 provinces/territories) and then write a review. I always read the 13 minimum in a year, but I don't always get the books reviewed. Since July 2015 I've read 14 Canadian authored books, and reviewed 8, so far. I'll keep reading, and hopefully get another five reviewed.

Canadian Books I Have Around Here That I Should Read
A Neighbourly War
What We Talk About When We Talk About War
Getting Over Edgar
Diamond Dreams: 20 Years of Blue Jays
The Englishman's Boy
The Diviners
