Booksellers' Choice

Faves and Raves from our Bookselling Team


Horse, by Geraldine Brooks. The horror of historic and contemporary American race-based violence is beautifully set within intertwining life stories.

The Marriage Portrait, by Maggie O'Farrell. After the wonder that was Hamnet O’Farrell pulled me in to a medieval aristocratic world of sensational dichotomies.

Joan, by Katherine J. Chen. This was my surprise read of the year with the physical strength and courage of Joan of Arc still with me weeks after reading.

Vanishing Ice: The Stories of NZ Glaciers, by Lynley Hargreaves. I’ve been lucky enough to have flown over, and landed on several of NZ’s glaciers along with them playing backdrop to some of my front and back country adventures. The peril they face from climate change is one of the most disheartening 'canaries in the mine' aspects of global warming for me.

Gotcha! by Clothilde Perrin. This is the latest in one of the most delightful groups of books that will go on to be family heirlooms. Inside the Suitcase, from 2021, is now out of print but we’re thrilled to let you know about our secret stash of these just for Christmas!
