What I Read in June

June was a weird a month both personally and globally. On a personal level it was a very busy but also anxious time. On global level the Black Lives Matters movement dominated the headlines, changed the way we look at police and history and, according to The New York Times, might be the largest movement

What I Read in May

May was an ok month. June was another story, but I’ll get to that on another post. I managed to read 7 books in total, some of them different from what I usually read. A Girl Called Shameless by Laura Steven, originally published in 2019 A Girl Called Shameless tells the story of Izzy O’Neill,

What I Read in April

March and April have been weird months, spent mostly at home. Even though I had more time to read, it was hard to concentrate in March, so I didn’t manage to finish any book that month. But in April my headspace got much better. I read a total of six books, some of them I

Books to Read While Social Isolating Part 2

One of the pros of being at home during this weird time we are living, is that we can do things like read more. A few weeks ago, I wrote a list with some book suggestions. The first part of this list was posted last week (check out here), and today I’m sharing the second

Books to Read While Social Isolating

I don’t know about you, but I’m still in self-quarantine, which means way more time to do home-based things. Not everybody is in the mood or mental headspace to be productive and do a bunch of online courses.

Além disso, ambas mostram realidades que parecem estar distantes, mas que, ao mesmo tempo, parecem possível de acontecer em um futuro próximo. Em O

What I Read in February

February was a month that went by quite slowly, even though it only had 29 days. Maybe it was because of the insane amount of rain where I live, or because I avoided every single Carnaval party possible (which was a task that took around 3 weeks), or because of my choice of books. March,

Conversation with friends and the story of 2020s characters + Comparing them to dog breeds

Somewhere around January I read a review on goodreads with the most perfect quote. “Conversations with Friends is another one of those books about not particularly nice people entangled in awkward relationships,” wrote Esil (the author of said review). Conversations with Friends is the second novel by Sally Rooney, a young Irish author. It tells

What I Read in January 2020

I believe January is the best month of the year. It is not only a moment for new beginnings and/or a life refresh, but also my birthday month. As a gift to myself I started reading multiple books at the same time, and finished three of them. Other three are still on my nightstand. The

O que eu li em Dezembro

Dezembro é o mês mais festivo do ano, mas também um dos mais corridos. Ele também é o mês no qual tentamos finalizar algumas coisas, como aquele livro chato que você começou a ler em agosto e que decidiu dar uma segunda chance. O Ano do Diluvio por Margaret Atwood O Ano do Diluvio é
