Current Reads · Week 24 | Tackling my TBR pile

CURRENT READS WEEK 24

It is currently 10th of June, but it feels like 160th days of January (I did the math, today is, officially, the 160th day of the year and end of Week 23) because the weather has been abnormally horrible, the summer doesn’t seem to rush to Portugal this year. I feel sorry for the numerous tourists who decided that May / June were the perfect months to come out on holidays. (which they usually are!).

Gray sky, cold wind and rainy evenings aside, let’s actually talk about some books, shall we? Continue reading “Current Reads · Week 24 | Tackling my TBR pile”

6 Games you ought to know before reading Ready Player One by Ernest Cline

READY PLAYER ONE

I remember the first time I read The Da Vinci Code by Dan Brown and how curious I was to discover and learn more about Art, Novels and obscure references used by the author.

This same feeling hit me when I was reading Ready Player One by Ernest Cline. When so much work goes into one novel, it is impossible to not want to learn more, to understand all of the references and to “educate” yourself on all of the 80s pop culture present in the book. Continue reading “6 Games you ought to know before reading Ready Player One by Ernest Cline”
