Book Lists

The Minerva Reader Recommends

I'm a Canadian author of nine books, all published by Inanna Publications. The Minerva Reader is my review site featuring unsung heroes or treasured books you might have missed. All the books in this list have been reviewed on The Minerva Reader. The site was launched in 2017 and all books are by Canadian authors and I try to support Canadian authors and publishers as much as I can. I also interview authors on Goodreads with my blog Interview With An Author, a fun initiative – six questions for each author and the answers are fascinating! I hope you will enjoy the list of books below – it doesn't cover all the books that are on The Minerva Reader but it does include 2019 to the present. I hope you will enjoy them!
