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, […]

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 […]

What I Read in April and May

It has been two months since I last wrote one of these posts. And the reason is (kind of) simple: I haven’t been reading as much lately. Thanks to multiple travels (which I loved) and life stuff, I didn’t have much time or energy to enjoy non-academical books. But, on the bright side, I met […]

What I Read in January

One of my goals for 2019 is to read more. More specifically, to read at least 14 books in the next eleven months. To achieve that, I decide to set a goal of reading at least 2 books a month. On January I read a total of 3 books. More than I expected, less than […]
