What I Read in July

July was one of those months that lasted 10 minutes. Actually, 2020 has been like this. But I still managed to read five books. Annihilation by Jeff Vandermeer Annihilation is the first book from the Southern Command trilogy. This book was written as if it was a diary from a biologist during her expedition to

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 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

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. And spending so much time inside four walls can get quite boring (especially knowing you should stay

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

What I Read in December

December is the most festive month of the year, but also the busiest for anyone that has goes to college or work. This is also the time where we want to finish things, like that very boring book you started in August and wanted to give a second chance. The Year of the Flood by

What I Read in October and November

I have no idea how to start this text, literally. On the past couple of months, I didn’t read as much as I regularly do, mainly because I had other priorities. At first, I felt bad about it, but then I remembered that 1) I already fulfilled my goal related to reading and 2) I
