Reading The Classics #5: A Little Party Never Killed Nobody?

So, this entry could be a little spoilery because of the title, so if you don’t want to spoil a book that came out in 1925… please stop reading now!

Hey there, Readers!

As every other month this year i’m doing my best to read a classic, you know a book that “ is an expression of life, truth, and beauty. It must be of high artistic quality, at least for the time in which it was written. Although different styles will come and go, a classic can be appreciated for its construction and literary art.” – according to google.

This month i totally forgot i have this goal, so i had to grab a book as quickly as i could to keep myself in line with this. So, i decided to take a huge step and read a book i thought i’d read in my 40s.

Yes, it’s a long time to wait but i was ready for that. Only it changed at the last moment.

So, what did Cleo read this month? Well, it’s a book i was pushing back because the movie seemed to me like a really “grown up” movie, i don’t really know i never watched it before.

Let me present you with the book i read this month then!

The Great Gatsby

Yes, i cannot believe i read The Great Gatsby… well, i didn’t technically read it, i listened to it in a great spanish production of the audiobook, but it was AMAZING and i was not expecting any of the things that happened there. Like, at all.

It’s weird, but i feel really proud that i finally listened to it? Like it’s a huge milestone on my reading “career”.

Also, such an incredible book, i’m like, classics are usually so boring but this one was well, GREAT.

And so, my way through different classics keeps intact at the time, and i’m super happy for it and also because the book was so good.

So, so far this goal is going great!

Hope next month i get to read another great classic! Do you have any recommendations!?
