Canadian Book Challenge 4!

I'm just a wee bit late getting this posted but...It's that time again! July 1st was Canada Day and the beginning of the fourth Canadian Book Challenge hosted by John of the Book Mine Set. Feel free to join in!

"It's time once again to explore, celebrate and promote Canadian books. You have one year to read 13 Canadian books and review them somewhere online, Canada Day, July 1st, 2010- Canada Day, July 1st, 2011. There will be check-ins at the beginning of each month to see how everyone is progressing and have their current status marked in the sidebar of this blog. Participants are encouraged to read each others' reviews, discuss the books, and cheer one another on.

It's the fourth year of the challenge and we've had a lot of fun. Participants are mostly Canadian but we've had participants from the U.S., the U.K., India, South Korea, Spain and more. In true Canadian fashion, all are welcome!"

I posted about the challenge recently too. I've read three really good Canadian novels so far. This is an easy one for me, I always read good Canadian fiction anyway. Here's mine with all those I've read in the previous challenges (many linked to reviews) and lots of good recommendations too:

I look forward to your thoughts on those you read.
