Alexan­dra Don­ald­son loves read­ing lit­er­ary fic­tion, es­say col­lec­tions, dark hu­mour, Cana­dian au­thors and mag­i­cal re­al­ism. This, and the fact that she’s one of our res­i­dent fash­ion edi­tors, makes her the clos­est thing we have to Belle from Beauty and the Beast.

Suzanne Moutis al­most al­ways has her face in a book, be it Golden Age mys­tery, Sec­ond World War his­tory or Hol­ly­wood tell-all. She un­apolo­get­i­cally loves Re­gency ro­mances and young adult fic­tion but turns up her nose at any­thing that will make her cry.

Sara Cation has wept-in-pub­lic her way through a litany of lit­er­ary heart­breaks, from

The Lit­tle Prince to A Lit­tle Life, but she’s buoyed by the hu­mour of Shteyn­gart and the prose of Safran Foer. She’ll read any­thing set in North Korea or In­dia but never touches self-help books or cheesy ro­mances…not that there’s any­thing wrong with that.
