We are ecstatic to be hosting our first book giveaway!
Starting on Monday, December 29, 2014 to Thursday, January 29, 2015, to celebrate the New Year and reaching 30 followers, Cheri and I are giving away the first two books that we reviewed.
By: Orson Scott Card
Back of Book: If Julian Delphiki, known as “Bean,” has learned anything from living on the streets, it’s how to survive. And not with fists — he is too small for that — but with brains.
Bean is a genius with a magician’s ability to zero in on his enemy and exploit his weakness. What could be a better quality in a future general about to lead Earth in a final climactic battle against a hostile alien race?
Recruited for Battle School, a military installation designed to select and train children as future officers in the International Fleet, Bean meets Ender Wiggin: soon to become his best friend — and his greatest rival…
Readers can revisit the events of Ender’s Game through the eyes of Bean in this parallel novel. Readers who have not read Ender’s Game will want to read it as soon as they finish Ender’s Shadow. As the author says, “These two books complement and fulfill each other.”
OKpotato Review: Ender’s Shadow:One MILLION Potatoes
By: Benjamin Alire Saenz
Back of Book: Dante can swim. Ari can’t. Dante is articulate and self-assured. Ari has a hard time with words and suffers from self-doubt. Dante gets lost in poetry and art. Ari gets lost in thoughts of his older brother who is in prison. Dante is fair skinned. Ari’s features are much darker. It seems that a boy like Dante, with his open and unique perspective on life, would be the last person that Ari has built around himself.
But against all odds, when Ari and Dante meet, they develop a special bond that will teach them the most important truths of their lives, and help define the people they want to be. But there are big hurdles in their way, and only by believing in each other — and the power of their friendship — can Ari and Dante emerge stronger on the other side.
