Trillium Book Awards Author Reading 2015

Year in Review & What Titles I'm Looking Forward to

Share |

As my final post this month, I thought I’d share a brief list of six of my favourite books in 2015 and seven forthcoming in 2016. Obviously, these are narrow lists and there were tons of other worthy titles (including new upcoming books by Nyla Matuk and Julie Cameron Gray—No cover images or links were available yet), but the follwing were the collections I was most impressed by.
I’m really looking forward to 2016 and all the incredible poetry titles that are forthcoming. Thanks for tuning in and following along with my posts. And thank you to Open Book Toronto for providing such fantastic and generous opportunities to writers.
I hope everyone has a great New Year! Happy reading in 2016!
