Some happy reading right here – check out what club members are saying about some of their favorite reads of 2018.

See you all in the New Year!

The Word is Murder by Anthony Horowitz

So well done that it had me wondering if this was real or fiction? Very interesting.

Brave New World by Aldous Huxley

Not too keen on the narrative shift mid-way, but enjoyed the completly different world and new society that it created.

The 2020 Commission Report on the North Korean Nuclear Attacks Against the United States by Jeffrey G. Lewis

Compelling writing. Mixes current events with an imagined future.

Mercy Among the Children by David Adams Richards

A fantastic but sad read.

Circe by Madeline Miller

Really liked the combination of magic and mythology. A beautifully written tale of liberation.

Jonny Appleseed by Joshua Whitehead

The story does not quite go anywhere but after a while, you get used to it. The only book I finished this year and am inspired to read more Indigenous fiction.

The Nightingale by Kristin Hannah

The best out of a trio of war novels featuring a female protagonist that I read this year. Hooked me early and I had to keep reading. So satisfying!

The Break by Katherena Vermette

Deeply moving intergeneration saga set in Winnipeg’s north end. I was pulled in from the first page. Well developed and well-written shifting narratives.
