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