My Top 3 Books in April

This was a strong month, I read so many exciting books. Looking back, despite all that is going on, life can be good if you concentrate on the positive. Also, I finished the first draft of my third book. Now I’m trying to piece together what is essential and what isn’t, and polishing the character and setting sheets. What is new with me is that I have started outdoor bouldering as the indoor centers are closed. Scary as crit, but fun and exciting and addictive, says someone with a whole in their ring finger and knuckles raw and open. But to the top 3 books.



  1. The Utopia of Rules: On Technology, Stupidity, and the Secret Joys of Bureaucracy by David Graeber, while this book has issues and I have a love-hate relationship with it, it got me thinking and set me to the path of my fourth book, so it deserves the first spot.
  2. Artificial Condition (+ the whole The Murderbot Diaries) by Martha Well, I single out this one, because for me it was the best one. The dialogue between ART and the Murdertbot is entertaining, but also bold for a writer to do.
  3. The Origin of Birds in the Footprints of Writing by Raymond St. Elmo was fun to read and something new, keeping me at the edge of my seat, waiting for what happens next. This is a magical realism book set in a modern setting with hacking, games, and NSA. Also, following the footprints are worth it.

Thank you for reading! Have a bookish day ❤
