Forest of Reading + First Review

To start of this post, we Canadians would like to apologize for taking up your time with this Canadian-filled post ๐Ÿ˜„

Every year, in Ontario (a province in Canada, for the geographically challenged), a giant book club is set in action. Sounds interesting? Well, it is! Every year, 10 books are chosen for 9 categories. The categories include:

Badge Name Age type of book
Blue Spruceโ„ข JKโ€“Grade 2 Picture books
Silver Birchยฎ Grades 3โ€“6 Fiction / Non-fiction
Red Mapleโ„ข
Grades 7โ€“8 Fiction, Non-fiction (every other year)
White Pineโ„ข Grades 9โ€“12 Fiction

Basically, every school I’ve ever been too has participated in this province wide book club. We read, trade and discuss the books, and at the end of the year, we vote for a winner. I thought it would be cool to review and predict the end results! Since I am in high school, I will be doing the White Pine level books, simply because they tend to be more relevant to me. But that’s not to say that I won’t review them ๐Ÿ˜‰
Starting every other week, Faith and I (or just me) will review the books, and hopefully discuss the books with people who have read them ๐Ÿ™‚ And on May 17th, we will go the the Festival of Reading and see who won (obviously documenting our adventure ๐Ÿ˜‰ )

Today I’ll post a list of all the books I will review, tomorrow I’ll post first impressions, and from then on, Wednesdays will be the very reviews ๐Ÿ˜€

      Actually, they do have an adult book club, but it has a smaller selection. Also, I find them less interesting so… ๐Ÿ˜› We also have national book awards ~ I highly advise checking out the nominees in Canada Reads (CBC runs it).
