Canada Reads 2019 Shortlist

The two books I wanted from the longlist made the cut. Hooray!

Yay, they’ve finally been announced! Are you ready?! I know I sure am. This year the theme for the book is One Book to Move You. Without further ado, here are your contenders!

Four memoirs and a novel, hey? I would have liked to see more fiction. Canada Reads should try doing all five books as the same genre as I’ve always thought that would actually make the debates a lot fairer. Needless to say, I’m still looking forward to reading these books as the two books I wanted to read from the longlist, The Woo Woo and By Chance Alone, made the cut. Let the reading commence!

Debates take place from March 25-28, 2019.

What books are you looking forward to the most? How are you reading the books from the shortlist? Will you wait out the hold list at your local library? Or purchase copies for yourself? Anyone have any luck getting second-hand copies?
