My Brillant Friend

  • Elena Ferrante

The story of the author struggling to figure out who she wants to be and her relationship with her friend, Elena Greco. It is beautifully written (in English and in French). If you have a side aspiration of becoming a writer, I would say that this is the book for you! I highly recommend it!

Big Magic: Creative Living Beyond Fear

  • Elizabeth Gilbert

If you haven’t found your artistic or creative groove yet, this might be for you! While there are indeed several books on developing one’s creative self, Gilbert’s approach encourages you to be selfless in your quest to define your creative self. Some concepts are, like in any other book, to be taken with a grain of salt. However, as the author says, the book no longer belongs to her once it’s in the reader’s hands and she gives you the room to bring your personal life into the book.

Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me (And Other Concerns)

  • Mindy Kaling

Mindy provides a hilarious yet insightful look into her upbringing and rise to fame, discussing being a woman in the the male dominated field of comedy. It is an easy read and her writing style makes it feel like you’re reading a story from a friend. 10/10 would recommend!

Shraddha Jaiswal

Ignited Minds

  • APJ Abdul Kalam

The book gives us the message of motivation and moving ahead. It does not tell us to stop and wait for the opportunity; it propels us to grab the opportunity or to create the opportunity.

Toute l’histoire du monde

  • Jean-Claude Barreau & Guillaume Bigot

A story of the world that summarizes the main lines of our history. Knowing your historical references is essential to shredding current events. I highly recommend this book!

The Midnight Library

  • Matt Haig

The book deals with human emotion of regret to outline the very essence of our existence. Although multiple screen and written fictions deal with the concept of inbetween and possibilities, author uses simple characters and storytelling that makes this one interesting.

Senior PR Director
Jean-Samuel Plante

Sur la 132

  • Gabriel Anctil

The story of a superficial publicist who gives up everything to go live on the 132 in the Lower Saint-Laurent. A reflection on our values and our relationship with the rural world.

The Light We Carry

  • Michelle Obama

The simple fact that the truly inspiring Michelle Obama has written a new book should convince you to read it. If that fact alone doesn’t convince you, I would add that she provides insights on how to stay balanced in the uncertainty of today’s world as we navigate through times of changes. As she says, “when we are able to recognize our own light, we become empowered to use it”. Enjoy your reading!

Operation & Content Specialist
Alizé Vidal


  • BĂ©nĂ©dicte Brocard

What does being authentic mean to you?

Through beautiful photos and touching testimonies, Bénédicte unravels the subject. These women, whom you will see in the book, have lent themselves to the game. In a vulnerable and true way, they have shared their stories. Having participated in the writing of this book, these exchanges made me question my own authenticity and the importance of remaining true to myself in a world where it is sometimes difficult to do so. Hopefully this book will push you to question yourself as well. Happy reading

Atomic Habits

  • James Clear

This book offers the most concise, easy-to-implement changes that have the potential to massively impact your productivity. It encourages a mindset of getting 1% better each day as opposed to focus on monumental shifts, making the strategies it suggests immediately applicable and possible for everyone.
