When Breath Becomes Air es un libro que me hizo reflexionar mucho sobre mi día a día. Desde que lo leí pienso mucho más en lo valiosa que es la vida y lo importante que es vivir cada segundo como si fuera el último, se que es una frase re cliché pero realmente este libro nos hace apreciar lo importante que es disfrutar y aprovechar cada día

I recently got Raceless in the mail from @bookdepository and I was ecstatic to read it. Not only because it’s an anticipated Non Fiction read, but because of the message that Raceless portrays.

Ya había leído varias historias cuando me crucé con García Márquez, y no me canso de leer sus historias. Entre sus novelas, fue claramente "Cien A?os de Soledad" la que me abrió los ojos al realismo mágico; desde su lectura, cambió mi forma de verlo todo y sospecho que no habrá vuelta atrás.

Lord of the Rings introduced the idea of a huge pastoral setting, incredibly dense world-building, a chosen one prophecy, hierarchical and well-structured magic systems, linguistically sound fantasy languages, chunky appendixes and much, much, more.

?This book has lots of moments that make your heart race, but above all, from my point of view and based on what it made me feel, it teaches you how tenacious love can be, the sacrificies that can be made in its name and how unconditional a person can be when faced with obstacles and bad times.
