Decoda’s Holiday Reading

Date posted: December 18, 2019

Although the winter holiday season is a busy one, Decoda staff members are planning to set aside some time for reading. We recently had a book exchange during our winter holiday lunch and several of those titles are slated for holiday reading. But, we’re an enthusiastic group of readers, so plans extend beyond one book. Can you match the reader to the title? (Answers below.)


Here’s what we’re hoping to read:

Aliza: Girl, Woman and Other by Bernardine Evaristo; Untangled: Guiding Teenage Girls Through the Seven Transitions into Adulthood by Dr. Lisa Damour; Queen Bees and Wannabes by Rosalind Wiseman

Christie: Pachinko by Min Jin Lee; The Measure of My Powers by Jackie Kai Ellis

Felisha: Hollow Kingdom by Kira Jane Buxton; There, There by Tommy Orange

Heather: The Tattooist of Auschwitz by Heather Morris; Girl, Woman and Other by Bernardine Evaristo; Bowlaway by Elizabeth McCracken; The Rosie Project by Graeme Simsion; anything by Louise Penny

Kimberley: Snow Queen by Hans Christian Anderson (a holiday tradition); the chapter from Little Women by Lousa May Alcott where the March girls celebrate Christmas Day (another tradition); short stories by Helen Garner

Margaret: There, There by Tommy Orange; Many Rivers to Cross by Peter Robinson; The Long Call by Ann Cleeves

Maureen: The Wagers by Sean Michaels; Born a Crime by Trevor Noah; Crow Winter by Karen McBride

Natasha: Greenwood by Michael Christie; The Book Thief by Markus Zusak; The Lonely Polygamist by Brady Udall
