What I Read in January, 2021

This year I have decided to focus a bit more on reading. My previous attempts on 2019 and 2020 ranged from just mildly successful to barely nothing. To help I’ve decided to keep track on my reading time. First on Notion, which I used during most of January, to them using a timer on the phone, which is way easier for me.

Geekosaur Weekly #1

For a while, I was thinking about returning with the weekly updates. And this week, after seeing that Twitter acquired a newsletter service (Revue), I decided to do it.

This is not actually a newsletter, as it’s been posted on the blog, but the idea is the same: having a commitment to write a weekly list of personal updates, interesting things that I found on the internet, and random thoughts/questions for online discussion that might result in a separate blog post later on.

To The Lake: When Shit Hits The Fan

With a very interesting timing, To The Lake is a Russian show about a deadly epidemic that released on Netflix in late 2020. I’m not sure if this unfortunate coincidence kept some people away from it, but I’m glad I wasn’t put off.

Book Review: The Word Is Murder by Anthony Horowitz

Since I was very young, I’ve always been a big fan of good mysteries. I still remember when I first got The Hound Of The Baskervilles, by Arthur Conan Doyle. It was a delight!

Then, fast forward to a year or so ago, and I was reading The Magpie Murders, my first Anthony Horowitz novel. I loved it so much, and I still need to write at least a short review here.

After that excellent first impression on an exceptional mystery novel, of course I was going to get another Horowitz novel. So I got The Word Is Murder, the first book on the Detective Daniel Hawthorne series, published in 2017.

Which Foreign Language Shows And Movies Do You Like?

I’ve always liked to consume different types of content. Not only different medias and genres, but also different origins. Recently I have been watching some great non-English (and non-Asian) TV shows and movies. Because of that, I decided to start a series of posts sharing some great recommendations, most of those from Europe.
