The holidays are characterized by a lot of hustle and bustle–the parties, the shopping, wrapping up the end of the year. There’s also some quiet time–reflection on the year that’s passing, time with family, and planning for the new year.
For these quite moments consider picking up one of the books that our staff is reading this month! (Psst! Festival books are currently 15%-20% off at the Harbourfront Centre Shop!)
Catherine Coreno just finished Zoe Whittall’s The Best Kind of People and started Charlotte Wood’s The Natural Way of Things. She also picked up Rupi Kaur’s Milk and Honey.
Rebecca Hallquist is currently reading A Gambler’s Anatomy by Jonathan Lethem and re-reading A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens, but this time in Swedish!
Dean Keranovic is planning to read Alejandro Jodorowsky’s sci-fi space opera The Metabarons.
Tina Kessler is finishing Kate Taylor’s Serial Monogamy.
Madeline McCaffrey just finished Rowan Hisayo Buchanan’s Harmless Like You and is moving on to Emma Donoghue’s The Wonder.
Zviko Mhakayakora’s TBR pile consists of Emma Donoghue’s The Wonder, Nathan Hill’s The Nix and Yaa Gyasi’s Homegoing.
Eirini Moschaki is reading Zadie Smith’s Swing Time.
Julia Yu is excited to read Trevor Noah’s Born A Crime.
We wish you the glitz and glam of holiday parties, the excitement of gift-giving, fun with family and friends and a lot of extra time to snuggle with a new book!
