Maybe you missed my obsession coverage of ReMade, a YA weekly serial that I gushed over for 15 weeks in the fall/winter. NOT A PROBLEM because we are back today with another amazing serial – Geek Actually!
Wednesday mornings are for discussing Geek Actually
In The Long Con, we get to spend quality time with Michelle, Aditi, Taneesha, Elli, Vivi, and Christina. I loved Vivi and Christina – their chemistry is off the charts! I would be lying if I said I wasn’t rooting for them big time. Taneesha goes on a date with our new fav book boyfriend (seriously, can I have him?). Aditi’s flighty nature is better explored; I think we’ve only scratched the surface of what’s going on for her. We also got some insight into Michelle’s former marriage and a peek into her future. This episode did not shy away from sexy times!
As for Elli, I spoke too soon last week because it looks like she may have found her calling! It’s funny how you never know where life will take you. I can’t wait to see how things turn out for her.
It’s not only refreshing to see a (geeky) diverse cast of women (written by a diverse set of women) in all stages of their career and personal life but also to see a new character (Ruby) introduced who helped explore ableism. I hope we see more of her in the future!
Come back weekly for mini reviews, including next week when I will review episode 1.5 along with Kelly from BookCrushin! As always, the first episode is free on audio and ebook – so you can try it out!

This is the 4th episode in the first season of Geek Actually, a 13-episode serial from Serial Box Publishing. This episode was written by Cecilia Tan.
Michelle, Aditi, and Elli love a good con, and when they converge at Booklovers, it proves to hold exciting opportunities for each of them. Meanwhile, Taneesha goes to a game night at Diego’s store, hoping to get another chance to gauge his interest. Christina and Vivi get closer, but does Vivi want more than Christina is willing to give?
