See that logo to the right? If you are holding a book with a sticker like that on it, or you come across a title on our site with that logo next to it, you’ve found an ABC Favorite. These books are our most cherished, mind-blowing and best-loved titles. Some are tried-and-tested classics while others are much newer, but ALL of them come highly recommended by an ABC staff member. A book has to be really special to earn that sticker!
We update our Favorites list regularly and here are some of our most recent additions:
The Fault in Our Stars – John Green (ebook here)
This was a bestseller from the moment it was published. A movie based on this touching teens-with-cancer story will be released this summer. You can read Oona Juutinen’s glowing You Review here.
Attack on Titan 1 – Hajime Isayama
Our first-ever Manga Favorite! This post-apocalyptic, award-winning story pits the remnants of humanity against all-devouring giants.
How to Tell If Your Cat is Plotting to Kill You – The Oatmeal
“If your cat is kneading you, that’s not a sign of affection. Your cat is actually checking your internal organs for weakness.” Don’t say we didn’t warn you…
Atlas of Remote Islands: Fifty Islands I Have Never Set Foot on and Never Will – Judith Schalansky and Christine Lo
Does what it says on the tin – but in a superbly designed manner. Puts a whole new spin on “the art of travel.”
You can find our Favorites in a special bookcase on the ground floor at ABC Amsterdam, or on the big table by the Information Desk at ABC The Hague.
