Teaser Tuesday: Ender's Game

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along! Just do the following:
• Grab your current read
• Open to a random page
• Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page

• BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!)
• Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!

So this week's teasers are from Ender's Game by Orson Scott Card. I'm pretty sure I read this as a kid, but I remember next to nothing about it, so I wanted to re-read it before the film hit theaters. So far, I'm really enjoying it! :D

"Ender almost said, I want to. But he held his tongue. This would keep him out of school, but that was stupid, that was just a problem for a few days. It would keep him away from Peter--that was more important, that might be a matter of life itself. But to leave Mother and Father, and above all, to leave Valentine. And become a soldier. Ender didn't like fighting. He didn't like Peter's kind, the strong against the weak, and he didn't like his own kind either, the smart against the stupid."
What are YOU reading this week?

  1. I read that one a couple months ago in preparation for the movie. The ending actually surprised me.

  2. This is a great quote from a great book Liesel. Ender gets his revenge in the end. That ending is brilliant Alex. I hope the movie doesn't spoil it.
