TBR Book Covers

What’s in your “to be read” pile?
by Katrina Sklepowich

Hello readers and festival goers!

With so many amazing titles out right now (and many more to come this autumn!), it’s difficult to decide which book to read next. I’m a one-book-at-a-time kind of girl, so I have a giant “to be read” stack on my bookshelf that I’m just itching to dig into.

Right now, I’m finishing up Jeff Rubin’s The Carbon Bubble: What Happens to Us When it Bursts, a clever analysis of Canada’s economic future (pertinent for the upcoming election!), and I’m just a few pages into Winnipeg author Méira Cook’s Nightwatching, one of our Summer Reading List selections.

What’s next?

  1. Go Set a Watchman by Harper Lee. Arguably the release of the year, I am both nervous and excited to dive into the original To Kill a Mockingbird.
  2. An Ember in the Ashes by Sabaa Tahir.
  3. The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho. So many people refer to this book as their favourite novel of all time – I finally picked it up over the weekend.
  4. The Secret History by Donna Tartt. Apparently, it’s a lot like reading the TV show How To Get Away With Murder. So much yes.
  5. Close to Hugh by Marina Endicott.
