Kick-Off For We Can(ada) Read!

I wanted to do something to showcase Canadian YA/MG more and was going to tackle this task on my own but then I thought "FRIENDS!" so I asked the other Canadian bloggers of the internet to write me Guest Posts about their favourite Canadian authors. I was anticipating having five posts total, including mine, but within 30 minutes of the call, I already had SEVEN sign-ups so I decided to make this a whole month thing! That, however, meant I needed MOAR things to do during this time period so check out below what's coming up during the month of September on the blog! So I am here to introduce to you...

We Can(ada) Read!

(Thank you to Dani @ Dani Reviews Things for thinking up the title and letting me use it! Feel free to share the graphic below but please link everyone back to my blog so they can find these posts!)

We Can(ada) Read is by Canadians for EVERYONE to learn more about some amazing Canadian authors! We have 16 Canadian bloggers highlighting 16 Canadian authors plus you can hear about what it's like to live in Canada and write CanLit from 8 Canadian authors, most of which are 2016 debuts! Clicking on the date will take you to that post!

  1. I think that this is such a fantastic idea, Jamie! Looking forward to seeing all of the Canadiana this month! 🍁

  2. Oh this is awesome!! I can't wait to read the posts! :D I don't even think I've ever read a book by a Canadian author?! I KNOW, THE SHAME. I have read a few books set in Canada at least, though, so I'm not a completely shamed fish.😂 Anyway, I look forward to recommendations!

  3. This is such an incredible idea! I wish I had known about this earlier, as I would have loved to participate :). Can't wait to experience all the wonderful Canadian posts :)
