Today is Thursday, which means its tag day! Yesterday was Canada Day, and I decided that I wanted to do a Canada themed tag this week, to keep the festivities going. I found this tag on Falling Over Books’ BookTube channel, and it fits the Canada theme perfectly. Unfortunately, I don’t know who created this tag, and it looks like the original video has been taken down. I decided that I would only pick books by Canadian authors for this tag, which made it a little bit more difficult than I was expecting.
Maple Syrup – Name A Book You Found Sickly Sweet
I can’t think of any books that I found sickly sweet, but I thought the ending of All My Friends Are Superheroes by Andrew Kaufman was very cute.
The CBC – What Book Would You Like to Make Easily and Readily Available to The Whole Nation?
I think it would be great if The Forgotten Home Child by Genevieve Graham was made available to the whole nation because it talks about a dark period in Canadian history that isn’t very well known. I think it’s important for people to learn about history and for people to become aware of the less pleasant parts of it.
The Trudeaus – Name A Book That Became So Mainstream It Was Nearly Impossible Not to Hear About
For this question, I’m going to pick Sadie by Courtney Summers. I haven’t read this one yet (I have a copy on my shelf), but it’s all over Bookstagram. The book sounds fantastic, and I’m planning on picking it up next time I’m in a “read all the mystery” mood.
The Pacific Temperate Rainforest – Name A Book That Will Always Keep You Company on A Rainy Day
Unsurprisingly, The Best Laid Plans by Terry Fallis is a book that will always keep me company. I keep on finding reasons to talk about this political satire, and thinking about it brings me so much joy.
Tim Hortons – Name A Book That Was So Good You Just Kept Coming Back for More
I’m a huge fan of Rick Mercer, and I think his books of essays and stories about The Rick Mercer Report are fantastic. I’ve read Rick Mercer Report: The Book, A Nation Worth Ranting About, & Rick Mercer Final Report, and they were all difficult to put down, and I could easily read them over and over again.
Ice Hockey – What Book Left You on The Edge of Your Seat with Anticipation?
The ending of Still Life by Louise Penny kept me on the edge of my seat because there was so much suspense. I don’t want to give anything away, but the stage was set for something bad to happen to one of the characters, and I needed to know if Inspector Gamache would get there in time to save them.
