In terms of reading, June was a surprise to me! I knew I was going to be very busy because I had to submit lots of papers. Therefore, I only expected to read five books, which is my monthly challenge. In case you don’t know, I always read at least two new releases, one classic, one book in Portuguese and one book that has been sitting on my shelves for a very long time.
Take a look at my June wrap-up:
⇒ I am Malala by Malala Yousafzai and Patricia McCormick: inspiring.
⇒ Everyday Sexism by Laura Bates: necessary.
⇒ Henry Miller: The Paris Years by George Brassaï: instructive.
⇒ Why I’m No Longer Talking To White People About Race by Reni Eddo-Lodge: eye-opening.
⇒ Back To Moscow by Guillermo Erades: singular.
⇒ The Razor’s Edge by Somerset Maugham: timeless.
⇒ Quiet Days in Clichy by Henry Miller: mindblowing.
⇒ Call Me By Your Name by André Aciman: a masterpiece.
I’d like to thank the publisher’s that sent me review copies:
– Why I’m No Longer Talking to White People About Race: Bloomsbury.
– Call Me By Your Name: Atlantic Books.
