  1. Wiener AnnaNidottu englanti
    "Thought-provoking memoir of a young female, who opts from the publishing world to the hubbub of startups. Unfortunately, finding one's unicorn isn't quite as simple, especially if you're a female." -Laura, Hki
  2. Koetzle ChristianSidottu englanti
    Oida! -Ismo, Hki
  3. Furtado PeterSidottu englanti

  4. Tooze AdamNidottu englanti
    Brittiläisen taloushistorioitsijan kuvaus vuoden 2008 talouskriisin syistä ja seurauksista. 5/5! -Ismo, Hki
  5. Heti SheilaNidottu englanti
    This novel (Heti is really stretching the concept though) is 300 pages of going back and forth: do I want a baby or not? It's a fresh take on a subject almost every woman has to think about and it feels important. -Outi, Hki
  6. Rooney SallyNidottu englanti
    Rooney writes in a way that is so effortless and yet punctual. Her characters can be frustrating and annoying but they feel like flesh and blood. They almost feel like your real life friends. Such a pleasure to read. -Outi, Hki
  7. Evaristo BernardineNidottu englanti
    A polyphonic novel about 12 girls, women or other whose lives more or less intertwine with each other. Full of empathy, understanding, friendship and grace. If you're interested in race, feminism, intersectionality and or women in Britain, it's a must read. If you enjoy books about friendships between women, you won't be disappointed either. - Outi, Hki
  8. Snyder TimothyNidottu englanti
    The rise of fake news and far right politics should be examined as well as the decline of democracies. Interesting, important and scary... it seems almost too easy to take a turn to unfreedom. - Outi, Hki
  9. Slimani LeilaNidottu englanti
    After reading ”Vaggvisan” by Slimani, Adele was an “eyes open!” WAU - reading. It is not easy to live a perfect family life when your mind is somewhere else. -Christel, Hki
  10. 4790
    The best and the only guide to the complete architectural history of Helsinki. Also available in German but not in Finnish. -Ismo, Hki
  11. Chabon MichaelNidottu englanti
    Chabon returns to form with an epic story of his "grandfather". Funny, tragic, touching- often all three at once. Book of the year!

    - Ismo, Helsinki
  12. Figes OrlandoNidottu englanti
    Jos luet eläissäsi vain yhden kirjan Venäjän vallankumouksista, Venäjästä tai historiasta ylipäätään, on tässä vahva kandidaatti. Valtava skaalassaan, tarkka analyysissään, humaani perspektiivissään. -Leo, Hki
