I read some great new books by some of my favourite Canadian mystery authors published this year but for my favourite Canadian book published this year, I think I have to go with

"Sleeping Funny" by Miranda Hill

A collection of short stories I enjoyed immensely. I hadn't heard of the author before and yes, she is Lawrence Hill's wife!

I haven't done many book reviews in the past few months, so was happy to find that my most recent read was by a Canadian author. Children of the Fog by Cheryl Kaye Tardif. She is from Edmonton.

Looks like is is #3 for me.

The Mistress of Nothing puts me at 19. And, sad to say, I have not (to my knowledge) read anything at all published this year. Oh, wait. Gaiman's Ocean at the End of the Lane, but that's not Canadian, so no go! :-)

Happy Holidays, fellow readers, in case I'm not on here before the next month rolls around.

Sharon adding my 10th/13 -
Winnipeg's CC Benison - "Death at Windsor Castle" - that provided some reading distraction and added to my Cdn reading list :)

Fave Canadian book published this year?
'THE GREATEST GIFT: Unwrapping the Full Love Story of Christmas' by Canadian author, Ann Voskamp
Perfectly timed for the season too ;)

Hoping your Christmas was blessed and your time off from studies a relief!

Looking forward to more Canadian reading as we enter a new year and continue your/our Canadian Challenge!
