The perfect holiday literature

The choice of books to pack in a bag together with sunscreen (or winter gloves) of course depends exclusively on your interests. If the previous months have been tense and stressful, you will want to bring light, drinkable novels or short stories. If you like the book to impress you, then you will choose a more complex story. However, there are books that you should not miss and that can enrich your vacation.

Bookstores offer a variety of holiday books

If you need a relaxing and witty book, which you can easily leave on a deck chair and easily return to, then head to some a larger bookstore, which set aside a special offer just for the holidays. Short novels, which most often describe sketches from the lives of the main characters, can be a good pastime that still carry a message. “Uruguay” by Pedro Mairal describes a day of the main character through which many situations and feelings were permeated. The book “Disturbed People” by the writer Fredrik Buckman, in a humorous way, describes one event and the participants, but also reveals the stratification of human nature. Rumena Bužarovska’s collection of short stories called “I’m not going anywhere” is one of the reasons why some bookstores are so popular.

A classic is never a failure

If you like to dedicate your vacation time to good, quality classic literature, all bookstores can offer you a large selection. The best of literature is certainly Oscar Wilde’s “Picture of Dorian Gray”, which is also perfect for a vacation. The story is layered, but also interesting, it is quick to read, so bring another book in addition to it. It could be Louise May Alcott’s novel Little Women successful screening in the form of a feature film experienced several times. The emphasis is on women and their position during the American Civil War. The novel also provides an excellent insight into the circumstances, customs and way of life of that time. It may sound unbelievable, but another classic can keep you glued to a towel, so you can stay last on the beach. It is about Bulgakov’s novel “The Master and Margarita”. It is interesting that this novel can also be assessed as ironic, satirical, with elements of psychology and a love novel. Many return periodically to Mesha Selimovic and his “Fortress”. This timeless work is full of messages and wisdom, and the main thing is that love is the meaning of everything.

More and more biographies are filling the shelves of bookstores

In the last decade, our bookstores have realized how popular autobiographies and biographies are with readers, so there is an increasing number of translations and editions. There are descriptions of personal life from almost all spheres of life, not just art. Tina Turner’s memoirs and biography entitled “My Love Story” provide an insight into the interesting and dynamic life of this singer. Tina Turner participated in writing this biography, along with two other authors. The autobiography of the Yugoslav actor Bekim Fehmiu with the impressive title “Brilliant and scary” shows how much Bekim was not only a unique actor, but also an excellent writer. The book was published in two parts and excellently describes the cultural, social and political circumstances of the former Yugoslavia. In addition, it provides an excellent lesson on the futility of dividing peoples and nationalities. Another biography, ie a novel with elements of biography is “Tesla, a portrait among masks” by Vladimir Pištal. Here, through stories and elements of fiction, the writer leads us through the life and work of this great scientist. It was rated as the most convincing biography and the most faithful description of an epoch.
