I learned my lesson with Canada Reads* this year, I need to give myself lots of time to get through my reading challenges. I usually wait until May or June to start my Evergreen Challenge but there was actually some overlap with the Canada Reads titles so I thought it was the perfect chance to jump in.
This year’s Evergreen nominees are:
- All Saints, by K.D. Miller
- Birdie, by Tracey Lindberg
- The Hunger of the Wolf, by Stephen Marche
- The Jaguar’s Children, by John Vaillant
- Local Customs, by Audrey Thomas
- Punishment, by Linden MacIntyre
- Seconds, by Bryan Lee O’Malley
- That Lonely Section of Hell: The Botched Investigation of a Serial Killer Who Almost Got Away, by Lori Shenher
- The Left Us Everything: A Memoir, by Plum Johnson
- Under the Visible Life, by Kim Echlin
I’ve already read Birdie so there’s just nine left – I can surely accomplish that by October, right?
*By the way, in case you were wondering, after a week of debates Lawrence Hill’s The Illegal was crowned this year’s Canada Reads title, which means my prediction was correct.
