  1. 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.


  2. 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!!

  3. Kelley Armstrong is my favourite Canadian author, too. 😀 I love her books. 😀 Thanks for the giveaway, Carmel and for co-hosting this fabulous blog hop! 😀

  4. Right now my fave Canadian authors are Ada Adams and Lesley Livingston. But I like many more than just those two. 🙂

    Thanks for doing the hop with us this year!

  5. There are so many fabulous Canadian authors!! One of my favorite is Genevieve Graham 🙂

    Thank you for co-hosting with Chrystal and I this year!!

  6. I’m a long time fan of Kelley Armstrong and have just about everybook she’s written or got a story in but I’ve also just recently discovered Dani Harper and adore her Changeling books as well!

  7. I haven’t read a lot by any one Canadian author to give much of an informed opinion, but I’ll say Ian Rogers as I’ve read a fair bit of his work and enjoyed all of it a great deal.

  8. Margaret Atwood is definitely my favourite ever since I first read Alias Grace in Grade 8. But since then my list of favourite Canadian authors are grown enormously! There’s so much talent here!

  9. I don’t really know a lot of Canadian author, I never really think about the place they live lol. But I think I would say Kelley Armstrong as she is the only one I know and I really like her adult series.

  10. Hi! Thanks for hosting this giveaway! My favorite canadian author…. Ouff, I read one of Dani Harper book this winter and I loved, but I think the probleme is I don’t know if my faves authors are (or not) canadian… I liked M.R Merrick and Avery Olive’s books too! But I’ll go with Dani Harper!

  11. I only know that Kathleen Peacock and Kelley Armstrong are Canadians and I love them both! Thank you for the international giveaway. Happy Canada Day 🙂

  12. @Laurie I’ve recently restarted my Kelley Armstrong collection because all of the book covers and formats were different. I want them all to be the same!

  13. Hmmm, tough to choose a favourite…One Canadian YA author I’m a fan of is Y.S. Lee. Need to get my hands on the 3rd book in her Agency series soon!

  14. I love Kelley Armstrong! I love her YA books, but I have yet to read her adult series. I’ve been wanting to read Lesley Livinston’s Wondrous Strange, but had no idea she was Canadian. Thanks for the giveaway!

  15. Hellou~! *waves*
    Awesome giveaway, honeybunch! *_*
    My favourite Canadian author?! Awww man, I have SO MANY! Let’s see.. I absolutely and utterly adore Kenneth Oppel <3 <3 <3, Lesley Livingston, Joanne Levy, Ada Adams, Matt Merrick, Lena Coakley, Alice Kuipers, Maureen McGowan, Robert J.Sawyer, Kathleen Peacock and I'm pretty sure there at least a dozen more 🙂

  16. I’m not really familiar with Canadian authors, I’ve heard about Kelley Armstrong though, and I’m planning to read some of her works. I should get acquainted with Canadian authors a bit more. 🙂
    I hope I’ll get that chance. Thanks! 🙂

  17. Isa

    I really like Margaret Atwood work so I think she would be my favourite Canadian author. Thank you! 😀

  18. Kelley Armstrong rocks the house, but there are MANY Canadian writers who bring the paranormal to life in romance and urban fantasy. Eve Langlais, Stacey Kennedy, Maureen McGowan and Linda Poitevin, to name a few.

  19. Suz

    I’d have to say Kelley Armstrong – I’ve read almost all of her books! Thanks for this amazing giveaway – I would love to win!

    Lori Lanssen. I read The Girls years ago, despite I’m not fond with that book, I praise Lori to write about Siamese twins

  22. My favorite Canadian authors are Lucy Maud Montgomery, Kelley Armstrong, and Lesley Livingston. Thanks for the great giveaway, Carmel, and happy Canada Day weekend!

  23. As far as books I’ve read lately, I’d say MR Merrick. Plus he’s from the same city as I went to high school in!

  24. Thanks so much for the giveaway! 🙂 I’m kind of torn between Kelley Armstrong and Courtney Summers – I love them both, but for totally different reasons. Thanks again! <3


  25. I love Genevieve Graham and her Scottish Historical books. Love Lyndsay Sands and her historicals. I really like how she incorporates humour in with her stories.
    I also really like Lila DiPasqua with her sexy fairy tales.

  26. Thanks so much for this giveaway! My favorite Canadian author is definitely Courtney Summers. I love how intense all of her books are, contemporary or zombie.

  27. OMG LOVE LOVE LOVE Kelley Armstrong 😀 😀 😀 and even though I’ve only read one book by her, Lesley Livingston is also realllyyyy good! Thanks for the amazing giveaway and Happy Canada Day! 😀


  28. Thanks so much for co-hosting a great blog hop. Happy Canada Day!

    I’ve never read Kelley Armstrong books, but judging from the comments here I should 🙂
