25 livros | 25 books

2015 chegou, muito mais rápido do que eu esperava. e esse será um marco pra mim — faço 30 anos — então decidi me dar ao luxo de fazer algumas coisas que sempre quis, mas nunca tive tempo: correr meia maratona, voltar a estudar e, porque não, ler os livros que sempre tive vontade. a lista não é grande, mas é ambiciosa para a correria do dia-a-dia. são 25 livros incluindo clássicos e contemporâneos e pretendo completá-los nos próximos doze meses — claro, compartilhando com vocês. comecei com The Secret History, de Donna Tartt, por nenhum motivo específico além dele estar no meu kindle há um tempo…

Feliz novo ano!

2015 came too fast and with it also comes a big milestone — I’ll be turning 30 soon. So I’ve decided to give myself the opportunity to do some of the things I’ve always wanted to, but never seemed to find time for: run half marathon, take up some courses and, why not, read all those books I wanted. it’s not a big list but it’s still a challenge for our ever-so-busy schedule. it’s 25 novels including classic literature and new-comer best-sellers which I hope to complete over the next 12 months — and share my thoughts on. I’m starting with The Secret History, by Donna Tartt, for no special reason other than it’s been in my kindle for a while now…

Happy New Year!
