Broken Geek Square - January Wrap Up

Reading Log

During the Month of January I have managed to read 20 books! I think this might be some sort of record for me.

Best and Worst

My Favourite would have to be A Court of Mists and Fury by Sarah J Maas.

This would be the third read-through of this book in expectation of the next book coming out this month. I still love it. The slow enemies to lovers trope done brilliantly. The gradual healing of trauma and the realisation that, what she needed before, isn’t what she needs now. I honestly think this is one of my all-time favourite books.

My least favourite was The Merman’s Kiss by Tamsin Ley.

It had instalust, instalove, an almost non-consensual coupling, attempted suicide by drowning, child death and a truly disturbing description of fish trying to get someone off.

Fish are food… not sex toys.

My Review post will be up for this on the date of Publication- 2/2/21


I wrote 2 additional posts for this month. My goal this year is to do at least one a fortnight so I’m sort of on task with this.

  1. Books I’m looking Forwards to Jan- Mar
  2. Anti TBR

Social Media

One of my other goals for this year was to increase my social media engagement. So I wrote 15 #VSS365 mini-story tweets on my Twitter @king_lyd

I also started to do Bookstagram pictures. Admittedly I am not the best when it comes to pictures so my first few were edited via Photoshop (or Jasc paintshop pro) but I am slowly getting the hang of it. Please join me and feel free to constructively criticise my pics @king_lyd

And that was my January. Please let me know if you read any of these. Please keep it to yourself if you have a fish fetish.
