We have four suspense books this month. The most brutal is Madelein Rust’s Lam ter slagting. Then there is a teenage novel, Weg, which will make your nails look awful. Even our SuperRomanza, Reis deur die hart, is a nail-biting story of crime and passion. Oh, talking about nails: Guess what happens when a brave bunny and a scared bear go looking for a hairy monster with large claws in the forest? And don’t forget to pass by the worst restaurant in the universe!

These are just some of our amazing books for August.

And remember. The English version of our Steinhoff book has landed. Will it go to number one the way the Afrikaans did?
