Consciously or not but the butterflies take over Hamlet's dilemma "to be, or not to be". They dictate the mood and the next steps to everyone. Only in this season people are looking so much into the sky and applications to find out the exact information whether the rain will fall another day or it will wipe the current plans as easily as it wipes the city dust on the car. Many things are not certain in the spring. One thing is. Sorry, three things are. These are the top 3 books for the spring of 2019.

1. Izuzetne zene Srbije: XX-XXI vek (Exceptional Women of Serbia: XX-XXI century) - Neda Todorovic and Radmila Stankovic

While memories of Women's Day are fresh, this is the ideal moment to remember the women who have had key roles in Serbia for a century. Every lady who has done a lot for Serbian culture and art has found her place between these covers. A book that should take a special place in every home library.

2. 21 Lessons for the 21st Century - Yuval Noah Harari

This is a hyper era. In every sense. A lot of important and even more irrelevant information flow every day. The richest market ever and money is the most valuable commodity. Everything must be done. Immediately. And everything must be the best. The best car, the best gym, the best family. People create time for everything, but they do not find time for themselves. Well, this is a book that returns the meaning of life to the epicenter. The new work of the well-known author was praised even by Bill Gates. So, you will have great company in your bag this spring.

3. Is This the Real Life? The Untold Story of Queen - Mark Blake

It seems that time can do nothing to the legendary band. Freddie Mercury was and still is an inexhaustible topic. There are many more myths than the truth because - there is one Freddie only. In every sense. He left the planet in 1991 and together with him, the Queen's story ended. For two full decades, the audience did not find a new favourite band. On the contrary.

"Bohemian Rhapsody" won first prize for the best film at the Golden Globe 2019 film festival, and then Rami Malek, the actor who played Freddie Mercury, won the Oscar for the best actor in the film. Journalist Mark Blake wrote the untold about unique rockers. Something that has not been known before. Admirers of the Queen's life philosophy, you will love this story. It is written in journalistic style, and it is richly illustrating everything that neither Freddie nor other members wanted to talk too much about.
