January and February Books

I didn’t finish my January book until the end of February, so I’m just going to post about them together.
Ender's Game
The January book was Ender’s Game by Orson Scott Card. Ender is a super intelligent child, who is taken by the government to battle school, to prepare to fight against the Buggers, who threaten planet Earth. I really enjoyed it, although I must add a disclaimer that there was quite a bit of swearing. Just fyi. I recommend Ender’s Game.

House on Mango Street
February book was supposed to be Eve and the Choice Made in Eden, but I’m not done with it yet. Instead, I read Sandra Cisneros’s delightful The House on Mango Street. This book is a series of vignettes about various characters in the neighborhood of an 11-year old girl called Esperanza. I especially loved this book because her neighborhood is uncannily similar to my last area on my mission. I’ve had experiences with every single story she tells. If you want a good read, I highly recommend The House on Mango Street.

  1. That’s cool that the neighborhood is really similar to your last area. That alone makes me want to read it.
