Top 3 Books in October

Hello there! Another month has gone, and books have been read and written. This month has been a hard one for me. I had a plan to write more book reviews, but I couldn’t, I have been too tired. But I hope November will be kinder for me. I tore my AC joint, which means I have to slow down and not exhaust myself continuously. So, that is a good thing. I hope you have been doing fine. The craziness continues on, but at least there are books to keep us sane.

Here are my top reads in October:

  1. No Friend but the Mountains: Writing from Manus Prison by Behrouz Boochani is a beautifully written account of an immigrant, which shows human nature in its worst, but perseverance where one can lose oneself. Everyone should read this to really understand what it means to cross over the ocean in the hope of life and to end up prisoned for the right to survive.
  2. Frankenstein: The 1818 Text by Mary Wollstonecraft Shelley astonished me. It is not only the language and the story, which makes this masterpiece. It is the question of natural science and what lines it should cross. But that is not what sold me to this story. It was the lost poetry of the monster. How robbed is this intelligent beast, rendered into an average joke.
  3. Zen and the Art of Writing by Ray Bradbury was inspirational. It reminded me about how important it is to stay true to yourself. How stories that affect the readers are those, which moved you to write in the first place. Ray Bradbury’s passion seeped out through the pages. No copies. Stick to feelings and ideas.

Good books keep me functional. I think I am not alone in that aspect. Thank you for reading, and have a brave new month ❤
