2017 book haul!

Although I don’t go to Amsterdam that often, there is always one good reason to go: books! Maastricht has a beautiful book store in the Dominican church, but the amount of English books they have is pretty small. Therefore Waterstones or the American Book Center in Amsterdam are my go-to places for some great books! This is what I came home with on my last trip, come take a look!

Of course I had to take this one with me. A retelling of the story of Cinderella, but with a nerdy twist!

My Lesbian Experience with Loneliness

An autobiographical manga that went viral on the internet, about a young woman struggling with growing up while dealing with her mental health and sexuality.


A grimdark fantasy novel. A dark tale full of betrayal, friendship and love. The story is told through many different points of view of each character.

Strange the Dreamer

Honestly, this is the one that I am looking forward to the most. The first chapter alone pulled me right in. Definitely one of those books you don’t find very often, but will fall in love with instantly.


A dark and disturbing retelling of Alice in Wonderland. I personally love darker versions of popular stories.

The lost Boys

A creepy and chilling version of the story of Peter Pan, that changes your ideas about Peter Pan.

Letters from the lighthouse

A  children’s book, that takes place in the midst of World War Two, featuring two children who find courage, grief and friendship during the war.

A place called perfect

An enchanting mystery novel about a girl living in a place called Perfect, where people have to wear glasses to stop them from going blind. But she soon learns that this Perfect place might not be so perfect after all.

Victorian and Edwardian ghost stories

I love classic scary stories, so this one I just had to take with me! Full of short Victorian and Edwardian ghost stories.

I am so excited for Strange the Dreamer! It will definitely be the next book I’ll be reading. I just finished Ginny Moon so I am very happy with my new books, enough reading material for the new year.

I wish everyone a happy new year and lots of luck for 2018!
