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

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

What I Read in September

September was an interesting month. And, I don’t know about you, but I feel like it lasted a total of 10 seconds. And in this small amount of time, I managed to start various books but finish only two short ones. The Invisible Life of Euridice Gusmão by Martha Batalha The Invisible Life of Euridice

What I Read in August

How can it be that we are already in September?! It seems like 2019 started yesterday! So, hello September. And, because it is already a tradition (and I love it!), let’s talk about what I read in August. Oryx and Crake by Margaret Atwood From all the three books that I read this month, Oryx

Amazon Book Haul

A few weeks (or maybe more, I lost count) ago Amazon blessed us with Amazon Day. And me being me, I spent a considerate amount of money on books. 9 in total. When the giant box the next day (it worked this time!) arrived I got very happy to see them in person. But then

What I Read in July

July has been quite a busy month for me. And as a result of that, I didn’t read as much as I wished (the expectations were high). I also started a bunch of new books that I’m either at the beginning or just finished. In the past couple of months, I developed the habit of

What I Read in June

One of my favorite hobbies since I was a kid is reading. I started reading very early (thanks mom!), and I always read a little bit of everything, from biographies to dystopian novels, from Nicholas Sparks to Gabriel García Marques. I believe that the activity of reading (it being a book or a flyer) can
