Introducing Imprints Online Bookclub

Imprints Booksellers - Monday, December 29, 2014

We are excited to announce a special new project to be implemented in 2015 – an online Imprints bookclub! Each month, we will publish lists of the books we've been reading on Facebook, Twitter and here on our blog. You'll have a chance to leave your comments and thoughts and you'll also have the opportunity to share some of your favourite books with us.

As a little taste of what's to come, our picks for the holiday season are featured below! Have you read any of them? What strange and wonderful books are on your reading list this festive season?

Katherine’s favourite books for the holiday season are an eclectic blend of the quirky and the classic. She's looking forward to delving into some good historical fiction with Jessie Burton's highly-acclaimed novel, The Miniaturist. Her crime pick for the summer is Slow Horses by Mick Herron  a gritty, realistic and thrilling spy novel which plays host to an array of deeply flawed yet likeable characters. Katherine also plans to tick a modern classic off her reading list with Sylvia Plath's pitch-perfect novel of youth and heartache, The Bell Jar.

What do fabulous chickens, policemen and Neil Young's cars have in common? They're all feature on Jason's summer reading list! Ernest Goh pays homage to the anything-but-humble chicken in his magnificent photographic book, Chickens. In his second autobiographical volume, Special Deluxe, singer-songwriter and cultural icon Neil Young reveals more of his life before fame with a special focus on his enduring love for vintage cars. The Last Policeman by Ben H. Winters is also on Jason's list and promises to be thrilling blend of apocalyptic action and crime noir goodness.


Kara has been engrossed in the lastest volume of The Canary Press the long-awaited genre issue! Her favourite story in it so far is Kij Johnson's 26 Monkeys, Also the Abyss. Kara is also looking forward to reading Alice Pung's young adult debut, Laurinda, a sweet and funny coming-of-age tale set in a snooty private girls' school in Melbourne. Chuck Palahniuk's crazy new adventure in American subculture, Beautiful You is also on her to-be-read pile and, time permitting, she hopes to enjoy a selection of W.H. Auden's Collected Longer Poems as well.
