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 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
