A Year in the Books: Book*hugs Recommend, the Staff Edition

Today’s chapter of Book*hugs Recommend features Book*hug staff along with (some of!) our favourite reads of the year. These are books which stuck with us, made us feel, made us laugh, made us think; satisfied some of our curious, droll, earnest, comedic, speculative, scientific, wanderlusting, metaphysical, intertextual, melancholic, and optimistic—you name it—moods. Read on for a list of books we admire; those we will be re-reading and gifting this holiday season:
