The Canadian Book Challenge #7: 07/01/13

cover art

July 1st is Canada Day and it means the start of the Canadian Book Challenge. It's my favorite of all the book blog challenges. I've been participating since 2009, the year my Canadian niece was born. The goal is to read and review 13 books in that year. For last year's challenge, I read 28 books. For the 2013-4 challenge, I'd like to match or best that effort.

As always, I'm including last year's completed books in case you want an idea of what to read. Here are the 2012-13, 2010-11, 2009-10 lists.
