What I'm Reading Wednesday - Ender's Game and The Daughter of Smoke and Bone

Update on my goal to write 5 scenes this week: it's going well! I wrote one scene, each about 1,000 words, on Monday and Tuesday night. I'm about to make it three in a row. So far the trick has been pushing through the difficult parts and just getting SOMETHING down. I can fix the small nuances later.

On to books.

Ender's Game by Orson Scott Card

I first read this book as an assignment for school when I was in eighth grade. I remember that I liked it a lot, but I also remember missing out on a lot of the nuances. Since the movie came out last year and I'd like to see it, I decided to go ahead and reread the book. It's even better than I remember so far. 

Daughter of Smoke and Bone by Laini Taylor (audio)

I kid you not, I find myself jonesing for this book. About twenty or thirty minutes before I leave work I start thinking about listening to it in the car. I kind of wish I'd checked it out as a regular book so that I could zoom through it, but I guess there's something to savoring it too :).

(Just realized I used the word nuance twice in this post. Decided to leave it be. If the word fits...)
