I will probably finish one or two more books this year, as I am working on two now, but let me tell you they will not be my favourite books of the year 🙂 So I am ready to go with my top 10 books now!
In no real particular order, as I can’t rank my darlings!
1- The Child Finder by Rene Denfeld- a fast and wonderful magical read. Dark but hopeful.
2- The Hate U Give by Angie Thomas- an important read for these topical times.
3-How Does A Single Blade of Grass Thank the Sun? by Doretta Lau- an excellent collection of stories.
4- The Break by Katherena Vermette- a challenging yet moving read
5- The Lonely Hearts Hotel by Heather O’Neil- beautiful storytelling a spellbinding tale of two orphans
6-Embers: One Ojibway’s Meditations by Richard Wagamese- this book taught me many lessons and is beautiful and meaningful
7- Milk and Honey by Rupi Kaur- poetry that slams you in the gut
8- Son of a Trickster by Eden Robinson – let’s all try to understand each other by reading voices different than us, this book will give you a new viewpoint
9- Minds of Winter by Ed O’Loughlin- a long and challenging read, but worth it in my opinion. I love when I learn this much from reading
10- The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck: A Counterintuitive Approach to Living a Good Life by Mark Manson- the best “self-help” book I read this year
