Procrastination

So I should be reading one of the many books I have to read and finish before the end of the month, or making a few of the videos that I am supposed to upload in the very near future. But instead I’ve said “screw it” and am drinking wine and starting Downton Abbey, because I’ve never seen an episode.

Let’s Talk Tuesday: Positivity and Perspective

Book Photo Challenge (Day 17): Biggest Plot Twist
In order to develop a secure defense against a hostile alien race’s next attack, government agencies breed child geniuses and train them as soldiers. A brilliant young boy, Andrew “Ender” Wiggin lives with his kind but distant parents, his sadistic brother Peter, and the person he loves more than anyone else, his sister Valentine. Peter and Valentine were candidates for the soldier-training program but didn’t make the cut—young Ender is the Wiggin drafted to the orbiting Battle School for rigorous military training.Ender’s skills make him a leader in school and respected in the Battle Room, where children play at mock battles in zero gravity. Yet growing up in an artificial community of young soldiers Ender suffers greatly from isolation, rivalry from his peers, pressure from the adult teachers, and an unsettling fear of the alien invaders. His psychological battles include loneliness, fear that he is becoming like the cruel brother he remembers, and fanning the flames of devotion to his beloved sister. Is Ender the general Earth needs? But Ender is not the only result of the genetic experiments. The war with the Buggers has been raging for a hundred years, and the quest for the perfect general has been underway for almost as long. Ender’s two older siblings are every bit as unusual as he is, but in very different ways. Between the three of them lie the abilities to remake a world. If, that is, the world survives.

A new series, where I show you my books that you don’t typically get to see, because they are hidden. You also find out my deep dark secret (spoiler alert: when I was a child I bought books and never read them, and now as an adult have yet to give them away).
