Books of the month: July 2013

I think that this kind of post is interesting. I really like to see what other people is reading, sometimes I can take some ideas and I think it's fun. I will try not to do this very long I'm not doing a review of any book, just a list of what I read last month and if I liked it or not.

So this was it for the month of july. It's very noticeable that I'm on vacation because normally I don't have the time for reading this much.


El Aleph (which is its original title, I can't find the english title, if it has it) by Jorge Luis Borges
I like it, but it is pretty tough, definetely not easy for me, but I think it's worth it.

L.A. Candy by Lauren Conrad
The only one that I read in english this month. I like to read light books in english, mostly for training my reading, once in a while. I think that this is not a good book, but it's easy and entertaining.

Animal farm by George Orwell
A classic that I didn't read until now. I love it, it's very fun, I wish I read it when I was a kid.

Lolita by Vladimir Nabokov
Another classic. I loved it, but it's pretty tough, not because of how is written (which I think it's beatiful) but because of the story, mainly because it's about a pederast and I guess it's not a book for everyone. But anyways, I think that it's a must-read (preferably is you're +18).

Dracula by Bram Stoker
Yep, another classic, I've been exploiting well my free time. What can I say, it's a sacrilege that I didn't read this beauty until now, it's amazing, specially for a vampire lover/freak like me. I think it's so funny, specially if you notice that it's the birth of the vampires as the romantic creatures that we know today. Well, not as romantic as the Anne Rice version, of course, but it was in Dracula when the vampires stopped being just evil monsters. I think it's very interesting to see how was the beginning. And the book itself is definetely lovely.

And that was it, I really hope you liked it :)
