Sundays In Bed With… Ender’s Game by Orson Scott Card

Sundays in Bed With… is a meme that dares to ask you what book has been in your bed this morning and is hosted by Midnight Book Girl. Come share what book you’ve spent time curled up reading in bed with, or which book you wish you had time to read today!

Hello, reader!

Happy Sunday and I hope you’re having a relaxing one! The family and I are about to head out to go apple picking for my birthday because I grew up in the Midwest and apple picking is one of my favorite fall activities! There’s also the promise of delicious apple cider donuts, so I’m excited 🤤 Once we get back, though, I plan to spend the rest of the day curled up with a book!

The book I’ll be reading today is a classic that I somehow managed to get through all of my school career without reading. I’ve already started it and, I have to say, I’m having a great time! Now it’s time to tell you more about it.

My Sunday Read Is…

Ender’s Game by Orson Scott Card

First of all, can I just say I had no idea that this was the start to a series? I always thought this book was a standalone! That makes me a little nervous because now I know all this tension and angst won’t be wrapped up at the end of this novel. At least I’m enjoying all the drama in the meantime, though, haha. This book is, first and foremost, a character study and I am absolutely loving it. Ender is such a fascinating character and what he’s being put through is awful. Maybe it’s because I used to be in the military, but I am not at all surprised by the tactics these officers are using to make him “the best of the best”. I’m eager to watch it blow up in their faces. (Please let it blow up in their faces…)
