This book broke my heart. Painful story of a native Ojibway Canadian taken to an abusive and horrific residential school who finds some solace in playing hockey, but even that joy is tainted by experiences he must confront. Saul‘s story and what so many children went through will stay with me. Beautifully written. #indigenousauthor #booked2019.

The stories varied greatly in quality, as they often do in collections of this kind, but they included ones from a couple of authors I especially like: Andrew Pyper and Michael Redhill. I also enjoyed revisiting some of my favourite places in Toronto and would love to read other books in this Noir series from Akashic.

Total so far for the #MrBook1InAMillion #readathon: 7 hours and 5 minutes.

Congratulations to @MrBook on his big milestone! I'm planning to join in the fun, with the #MrBook1InAMillion weekend readathon, hosted by #LitsyPartyOfOne and sponsored by #24B4Monday.

These are a few of the books on my current TBR stack that I plan to read, but I'm sure I'll get distracted by others along the way.

One of my great uncles moved to Canada as he couldn't get a job here, and fought in a Canadian regiment in World War 1. He was one of the dead, though.

This is an incredibly sensitive look at rape survival. There's nothing graphic portrayed in it in terms of violence, but rather it focuses on her recovery, on her learning how to reclaim her life after an assault. It also addresses the topics of victim-blaming and stereotyping, but not in a heavy-handed way. It talks about these things gently and naturally. It shows a possible path to healing and what it means to support the ones you love.

This is a lovely picture book that celebrates how children view Canada. I found it in one of my Mum‘s boxes and thought it would be a great way to wish all Canadian Littens Happy Thanksgiving 🇨🇦

Just some light reading about murders in and around my home town spanning from the 19th to the 20th centuries... Reading these is slightly terrifying considering I recognize some of the locations and because its not fiction...#TeamSlaughter #scarathalon #murdercity #truecrime

This book just wasn‘t really to my taste. I read it for book club. Will be interesting to get other people‘s take on it
