  • they both die at the end
    • writer: adam silvera
    • ★★★★★; i do not have any complaints about this book. just as the past silvera’s book i’ve already read "they both die at the end” is a very sad yet a very beautiful book. i love rufus and mateo so much and i hope they stay together in the afterlife if it really exists. started 2019 feeling miserable thanks to adam, again.
  • navigating early
    • writer: clare vanderpool
    • ★★★★★; besides delaying my own process of reading it i loved every inch of this book. the characters are captivating and very unique. i loved the aesthetics of the book itself and the pi stories, all of them made me think about myself because it’s full with metaphors throughout it. loved and i believe this is the new “the little prince”.

  • your name.
    • writer: makoto shinkai
    • ★★★★☆; this is the novel of my favourite movie of all time so it was clear that i’d like it. however, as makoto shinkai did say in the afterword, it does work best in the movie format, the lack of describing and explanations where classical of a script though i can’t complain because i can read my favourite movie quotes every at the time i want. great book by the way.

  • the perks of being a wallflower
    • writer: stephen chbosky
    • ★★★★★; the book that not only is a great book but the materialized relationship between my friend and i. it was the birthday gift she got me and i read in a kinda lonely and dark moment of my life, it was great. it pushed me to think thing i needed to think. loved it in every way possible.

  • the catcher in the rye
    • writer: j. d. salinger
    • ★★★★★; i only read this book because of "the perks of being a wallflower" and i had medium expectations. however, my expectations were easily surpassed by it. i love holden so much! i also read few "explanations" (i was worried because i didn’t got the book's "real" message at first) of the book and i love it even more now.
  • coração mecânico
    • writer: lucas vieira
    • ★☆☆☆☆; since 2018 i've read a lot of books and there’s none that i didn't mark (even the david levithan's ones are). well, it's the author's first book and i have to take that in consideration. it doesn't have a great plot nor any type of reflection. everything happens very fast and the end is supposed to thicken the plot but the only thing thickened is the mess that is this. sorry brazilian contemporary literature.
