Goodreads Mondays #20 – March 1st, 2021

This is the post where we discuss what is on our To Be Read List, and why we want to read these books. I have over 1,400 books on my To Be Read List. I have so much reading to do. What are some of the books on your To Be Read List?

This week I am going to talk about The Queen’s Gambit. It has become super popular, thanks to the Netflix series. The book was first published back in 1983. I haven’t seen the Netflix series yet, since I’ve been waiting to get it from my library. I have heard great things about the show, and the book. I am really excited to watch it and read it.

It is about an eight year old orphan. She is seen as a coy little girl, that is until she plays her first her game of chess. She begins to think more clearly, and finally feeling like she is in control of her life. At the age of 16, she begins to participate in competitions.

Goodreads Rating: 4.23 stars out of 5
