Staff Picks: First Book of the Year

Start your reading year strong! The reading habit starts with one book at a time, one page after another. Check out what our resident bookworms chose for their first reads this 2023. 


Fully Booked Staff Picks Arielle

Oh, the Places You'll Go by Dr. Seuss

I picked up this Dr. Seuss book to soothe my inner child! A new year means new beginnings, and that can be intimidating. Oh The Places You'll Go is a sweet and funny reminder of the inner strength that we all possess. When I read it, I feel as if a parent is speaking to me gently, kindly. This book means a lot to me, as I'm sure it does to many people.

Fully Booked Staff Picks Hance

Lore Olympus Vol. 1 by Rachel Smythe

This book is all about Greek gods being humanized but in modern way. Imagine how these gods and goddesses would act if they ran into scandalous gossips as well as fell in love like normal people. And the fact that this is a webtoon-original adapted into into books make it more interesting!

Fully Booked Staff Picks Ilia

Out of Office by Charlie Warzel & Anne Helen Petersen 

For many of us, 2023 will be our fourth year of remote or hybrid work. Some thrived when they were working from home, others found themselves having no boundaries between work and life. I picked up this title to better understand the challenges and the opportunities of flexible work arrangements so I can have a healthier, more balanced life this 2023. - Ilia, Marketing


Fully Booked Staff Picks Myks

I'm Glad My Mom Died by Jennette McCurdy 

I've been planning on reading this since last year because Jeanette's character on iCarly is someone i grew up with, and i was interested to know her life behind the scenes. This book made me realize that actors/actresses are still human beings, and that even if you have something everybody wants, does not guarantee happiness for you. - Myks, E-commerce


Fully Booked Staff Picks Addie

On Earth We're Briefly Gorgeous by Ocean Vuong

Ocean Vuong writes of inspiration from each and every one of us on listening, healing, surviving and finding joy. Finally picking up a bookworm favourite as my first read of the year hoping to find a bit of a restart to what has happened in the past and what lies ahead. - Addie, Creatives


Fully Booked Staff Picks Anna

Atalanta by Jennifer Saint 

If you know mythology, then you probably know Jason and the Argonauts — the mightiest heroes on the Quest for the Golden Fleece. One of them was one such woman under the protection of Artemis. Her name is Atalanta and while she is much less known, Jennifer Saint delivers a retelling of her own hero's journey. - Anna, Digital Marketing


Fully Booked Staff Picks Karla

New Teeth by Simon Rich 

Discovered Simon Rich because of my love for the humor of the show Miracle Workers, which he created. His collection of stories Spoiled Brats which is mostly about spoiled rich kids gave me a good laugh, and so I picked up his latest collection of stories New Teeth to see what (ridiculous) stories he could tell about raising babies. - Karla, Partnerships and Events
