Canada Day Book Recommendation

Canada Day Book Recommendation Featured Image

Happy Canada Day to all of my fellow Canadians out there! In honour of it being Canada Day I wanted to take this opportunity to recommend a few books by a very lovely Canadian author. I wanted to take today to recommend June because I feel like her books should be more widely known and read. If you’re a fan of historical kdramas you will definitely love her books. So let’s check out June and her wonderful stories!

June Hur was born in South Korea and raised in Canada, except for the time when she moved back to Korea and attended high school there. She studied History and Literature at the University of Toronto. She began writing her debut novel after obsessing over books about Joseon Korea. When she’s not writing, she can be found wandering through nature or journaling at a coffee shop. She is the author of The Silence of BonesThe Forest of Stolen Girls, and The Red Palace, published by Feiwel & Friends/Macmillan, and she currently lives in Toronto with her husband and daughter.
