10 Great Canadian Reads The Girl Who Was Saturday Night A Tale for the Time Being All My Puny Sorrows The Handmaids Tale The Bear

I grew up with the misconception that Canadian Literature was “uncool” and “boring” (I know, I know!). Luckily, I have seen the errors of my ways and have begun to really enjoy and seek out Canadian Literature. Over the past year, I have made a conscious effort to read and review more of these books so others can appreciate all that these Canadian authors have to give too!

      Thank you! I definitely used to pay most of my attention to English and American literature, but I’m glad I’ve branched out from that! I’m sure you’ll find many great reads in this list!
