Welcome to the second edition of the Canada Day Blog Hop! Aislynn (Stick – Read – Cook) and Chrystal (Snowdrop Dreams of Books) started it all and I’m excited to be joining them as a co-host this year.
I also wanted to take this opportunity to mention that I maintain a directory of all Canadian Book Bloggers; if I missed your blog please feel free to e-mail me your information and it’ll be my pleasure to add you!
Happy Birthday Canada! Good luck everyone and don’t forget to hop, hop, hop! 🙂
Feel free to grab the InLinkz code for your own post.
About the Blogger
I review Urban Fantasy and Paranormal Romance books with a focus all things werewolf. Based out of Ottawa, Canada
I absolutely love Dave Bidini, especially his TROPIC OF HOCKEY and ON A COLD ROAD books. When he approaches a subject, it never ends up being JUST about that subject. Hockey becomes the means to identity in places like Dubai and China, not just Canada; a rock tour becomes the place to consider loneliness, identity, and even world politics. Plus, there are always the funniest and craziest anecdotes from the most unexpected sources along the way.
So I am Canadian…. and I don’t really know any Canadian authors… LOL But there is one author whose books I want to get my hands on and that’s Kelley Armstrong.
Thanks for the giveaway & good luck everyone!!

I really have to say L.M. Montgomery for the Anne of Green Gables series. But Kelley Armstrong is right up there too.
