My 5 Favourite Books

I read Emily of New Moon when I was 10. I wasn’t the first Canadian girl to love Emily because I wanted to be a writer, and I’m not the first to blame Emily for becoming a writer. But I’m not sure if anyone else did this: when I decided to write seriously, I took the summer off and went to PEI where Emily (and Lucy Maude) had grown up.

That’s an excerpt from a guest blog at Chatelaine. It was so much fun to think about and write–do have a look over there.

Which of the 5 would you pick to read?



Lilian is the author of Web of Angels, a novel about a mom with DID (multiple personalities). She's also the author of the historical novels, The River Midnight and The Singing Fire, about secrets, friendship and motherhood in 19th century Poland and London.

  1. I remember falling in love with Carol Shields’ descriptive style. “She veered accidentally into her own life”. Wow!

      1. Yes – Unless was the first Carol Shields I read… loved it. I just bought Republic of Love. Looking forward to finishing the semester so I can get started on it.
