Book Connections

Connected to Canada Authors

I like to know where the authors I read come from. Today I am looking at my shelves to see what Canadian authors I have read or will read. I have to admit it was a little challenging to find the five.

As usual the covers link to Goodreads if you want to know what the books are about.

The Blue CastleFirstly L M Montgomery. I think the author I have read the most. I have The Blue Castle to read sitting on my shelf. Its one I want to get to soon. Lots of four and five stars for this one on Goodreads from readers I respect.

book coverK A Tucker is probably my favourite Canadian author. She writes romance and some of it is romantic suspense. I’ve enjoyed anything I’ve read by her.

Book cover Genevieve Graham writes historical romance ( or the ones I’ve read anyway). She also often includes some important part of Canadian history which adds a lot of interest.

book coverJennifer Robson lives in Toronto Canada, so I am counting her! The Gown and Goodnight From London are two of the books I’ve read by J Robson, both very good historical fiction.

book coverJanette Oke is my fifth author and I have this historical fiction book sitting on my shelf waiting to be read and I want to reach it before too much longer.  I see there is about 8 books in this series and maybe I will want to read on through

Recently Bought Books

I have too many good books to read! I have those library books mentioned last week. Plus it seems to have been a big buying month! Sometimes the bug hits. It is going to be awhile before I get to these but I am so wanting to.

The GunkleA gay uncle has to look after his niece and nephew for the summer. I heard about this on a book podcast and I really want to read it sooner rather than later. I haven’t read Steven Rowley yet, I did intend to, so I can start with this one.

When Stars CollideI have recently bought this one too and I really, really want to read it soon. SEP’s latest romance between an opera singer and a back up quarterback. I am a die hard fan. Out of the five, when I get a chance this will be the first one.

The Player Next DoorI also am a fan of Canadian author K. A. Tucker and I need an author with same initials as me for a challenge. Well I don’t have an A. but I consider the K and the T reason enough!  It is a romance as well. I didn’t even really read what its about, just the author’s name is enough!

Don't tellDon’t Tell is the first one in Karen Rose’s romantic suspense series. I’ve read some of the later ones, but I want to go back and start the series. I probably won’t get onto it for awhile but I have this one and the second one. However the latest one comes out early August and I suspect I’ll read that one first when it publishes.

The Book ClubThis was close to an accidental buy. I had put it in my wish list after what Irish blogger/reader Trish had to say about this on IG or Facebook. Can’t remember. It was sitting in the list beside a book I intended to buy. I must have accidentally put this one in the cart and saw it only after I’d paid. I didn’t want to go through the rigmarole of changing it, so I left it. It will be good I am sure, I haven’t read anything by the author yet. Was published in June 2021 by Irish author Roisin Meaney. Well I mean, look at the title!!

It’s Monday! What are You Reading?

It’s Monday! What Are You Reading? a place to meet up and share what you have been, and are about to be reading over the week. It’s a great post to organise yourself. It’s an opportunity to visit and comment and er… add to your groaning TBR pile! So welcome in everyone. This meme started on J Kaye’s blog and then was hosted by Sheila from Book Journey. Sheila then passed it on to Kathryn here at The Book Date.
Jen Vincent, Teach Mentor Texts, and Kellee of Unleashing Readers decided to give It’s Monday! a kidlit focus. If you read and review books in children’s literature – picture books, chapter books, middle grade novels, young adult novels or anything in those genres – join them.

Line break

Hope you have a good week and enjoy Christmas in the small groupings it will be for you this year. Enjoy the coziness of it.

I’ll take a week’s break from blogging and will be back here next Monday with what I’ve been reading – or maybe what I haven’t been reading!

What I read last week:

What I am reading now:

book cover

Still listening to Born a Crime.

Up next:

Not really sure.  It will be a mood read, whatever it is and also I want to catch up on some viewing and leave room for some Christmas movies, plus The Bridgertons will drop on
Netflix later in the week and I want to see some of that.
