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 Mondays #14 – January 18th, 2021

This is a post about us discussing one of the books in our To Be Read List and talking about why we would like to read it. I would love to know what is on your To Be Read List.

I don’t know who knows this, but I have a lot of books on my To Be Read List. I wish I had enough to read all of the books in the whole world. But I am trying my best to make a big dent with my books this year.

One of the books on my To Be Read List is The Outlander by Diana Gabaldon. I would love to read this because it has romance, history and fantasy with the time travelling. It is about a girl named Claire who is celebrating her second honeymoon with her husband after World War II, but she suddenly becomes an “Outlander” when she is magically transported into 1743. I want to read the books, so I can watch the show on Netflix. I always prefer to read the books, before I watch the movie, or show.

What is something you wish to read soon?

Thankful Thursdays #27 – December 31st, 2020

I cannot believe this is the last Thankful Thursday of the year. But don’t worry I will definitely keep on posting this every Thursday in the new year. I really enjoy writing these posts.

I have a lot to be grateful for this week. I would love to hear about what everyone is grateful this week, and even throughout the year, too.

Here is my list.

  1. I had a lovely Christmas. My roommate made us steaks and baked potatoes, with a Caesar salad. It was really delicious. It was a fun night considering we couldn’t really see our families with the new restrictions.
  2. Disney+ released a new movie called Soul, it was an amazing film. It’s about discovering your purpose in your life. I loved watching that movie. I feel extra inspired to start the year off with having watched that movie. I can’t wait to watch the new series on Netflix called Bridgerton. Especially since Shonda Rhimes produced the show. It is based off a book series.
  3. My boyfriend and I enjoyed four days of watching football. It was even better, because our team won.
  4. I briefly saw my family for an exchange outside of our house, maintaining our distance from one another. I got a bunch of cool stuff, stuff I needed like body wash, a candle, money, and gift cards.
  5. Our room is all clean for the new year’s arrival. That is always exciting. 🙂
