Celebrate Toronto Literature!

When I fall in love with a city, I devour every book featuring it that I can find. Being a Torontonian, I'm enamoured of this beautiful city, and of course, am thrilled when novels are set here. So imagine my excitement when I learned about #OneBookTTC, the Toronto Public Library's week-long discussion of literary gems and Toronto culture, taking place on twitter.

Yesterday's question was especially awesome: "What is your favourite book set in Toronto?". I loved scrolling through the answers. I've read quite a few of them, but there are numerous titles I haven't even heard of, which makes me wish I were at the library right now!

My picks:

And here's a list of some of the other books mentioned:

Charis Cotter's Toronto Between the Wars
Shawn Micallef's Stroll
Dionne Brand's What We All Long For (this one was shared by author Zoe Whittall!)
Lilian Nattel's Web of Angels

And of course, Girls Fall Down by Maggie Helwig, which is TTC One Book Club's official choice.

Find the rest of the list here.

What's your favourite book set in Toronto? Are you taking part in #OneBookTTC?
