I didn’t finish my January book until the end of February, so I’m just going to post about them together.
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.
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.
