Somehow, despite being almost 900 pages long, it grabs your attention and doesn’t let go.
Ailish, ABC The Hague
This story is one I will remember for a long time to come.
Natalia, ABC Amsterdam
A collection of Norse tales from the Viking era. Wonderful illustrations complete this great book.
Jitse, ABC Amsterdam
Modern-day Western with action, humor, family, loss… basically life.
Martijn, ABC The Hague
A highly recommended title for anyone looking to start their antiracism education.
Iris, ABC The Hague
It made me laugh out loud. Give it as a gift to anyone you know who regularly interacts with men.
Jeroen, ABC The Hague
Everything you need to know about what happens under your feet, on our planet and in the universe!
Klaartje, ABC Amsterdam
This book was romantic and dark and it takes its time to learn the characters. I didn’t want to put it down.
Maria, ABC Amsterdam
Colson Whitehead is an amazing writer. It’s a true page turner with a twist at the end I did not see coming.
Pleun, ABC Amsterdam
If you are interested in climate change in the slightest this is a book you should read.
