Since I’m very busy procrastinating and not working on the take-home midterm exam that is due tomorrow at 11:55pm, I thought I’d come up with a list of the books I would like to read for the second Canadian Book Challenge. Unfortunately, I didn’t make it through the first challenge because I started so late and had too much school reading to do. My theme for the first challenge was Canadian Children’s Literature and since I now have many sad children’s books calling to me from the shelf I’m going to stick with that theme for the second challenge.
Here’s the list:
- Before Green Gables by Budge Wilson
- Darkwing by Kenneth Oppel
- A Perfect Gentle Knight by Kit Pearson
- The Secret World of Og by Pierre Berton
- The Hockey Sweater by Roch Carrier
- Stella Fairy of the Forest by Marie Louise Gay
- Some of the Kinder Planets by Tim Wynne-Jones
- Jacob Two Two Meets the Hooded Fang by Mordecai Richler
- Owls in the Family by Farley Mowatt
- The Paperbag Princess by Robert Munsch
- An Earthly Knight by Janet McNaughton
- The Singing Stone by O.R. Melling
- Death Over Montreal by Geoffrey Bilson
Okay, so some of them may be crossing over into Young Adult fiction instead of staying in the Children’s fiction genre, but I think that they’ll all prove to be fantastic reads.
