CULTURE: My 2020 Book List

CULTURE: My 2020 Book List

Hello dears! How are you? After a tough selection, here’s (finally) this year’s book list, I hope you like it!

By Andrea Ochoa

First of all, thank you all for your book recommendations for 2020. 2019 was a great year: we accomplish the goal of reading a book a month. This year will not be the exception.

I must say that it was difficult to choose only 12 books of all the options there are. Although I previously had a list of books that I wanted to read, I chose each month according to my mood.

This time I decided to consciously choose, among the authors I like, the recommendations of all of you, foreign authors and novels that relate to current affairs: ecology, migration, religion, etc.

Each month I will share my opinion about each one of them.

So, I hope you this list and above all, that it inspire you to read more this year!
