Ender's Game
Ender's Game - Orson Scott Card
I will tell you right up front that I don’t usually read Sci-fi. When I got this book for book club, I was eyeing the movie thinking that I might be better off with the movie but I took a chance and grabbed the book. I am so glad I took the book; this book was amazing! I loved this book! I still can’t believe how much I loved this book. As I reading this book, I got excited and was smacking the book closed every so often (more often than I want to admit) and voicing off to my husband what was happening, and we were actually having a conversation about this book because he remembers watching the movie. This book was exciting, tense, irritating, and just plain crazy.
 
I won’t rehash the whole story line but I will tell you this. I could not put this book down! Poor Ender, just when he finally finds a place where he thinks he belongs, he begins to get bullied again, I think not! He stands up for himself (keep soapy!). He begins to make a few friends and amazingly, he ends up getting some individuals who actually admire him, and next thing you know, he’s a leader. Not just any leader, but one who listens to his troops and cares.
 
I loved the character build-up in this book and the anticipation as the story grew. I swear, I was right there with Ender as he commanded his troops and I experienced the ups and downs also as this novel moved quickly, for there was fear of a war and they needed to get ready. Just when I thought the book ended and I was fighting mad, there was more to read. This part was like a nudge to get me calmed down. So now, I am hooked, I need to read the next book in the series to see what happens.
 
I’m a late bloomer to this book but I am so glad that I finally found it.
 
Following Week: I decided to rent the movie since that was my husband’s version of the book. What happened? I think they pulled a fast-forward on the whole book. I was a horrible, and I mean horrible movie watcher, as I commented during the whole movie. I just couldn’t help myself. “Where’s the ____?” “What happened to the ____?” “No,no,no!” “That’s bogus!” I felt that there was no character build-up, no anticipation, and the unity that I felt between the characters in the book wasn’t there. It was wham-bam, here he is, here he is, here he is, so choppy. My husband kept telling me that if they made the movie like the book, it would be hours long and I told him but it would be an amazing movie! Unfortunately, he heard everything that was missing from the movie and afterwards, I asked my 2-3 book-a-year husband, if he would like to read the book to experience it like I did and he declined, with all my narration, he got the just of the book- ha.

Halloween Bingo 2018 - Terrifying Women
Shell Game - Sara Paretsky

Legendary sleuth V.I. Warshawski returns to the Windy City to save an old friend's nephew from a murder arrest. The case involves a stolen artifact that could implicate a shadowy network of international criminals. As V.I. investigates, the detective soon finds herself tangling with the Russian mob, ISIS backers, and a shady network of stock scams and stolen art that stretches from Chicago to the East Indies and the Middle East. In Shell Game, nothing and no one are what they seem, except for the detective herself, who loses sleep, money, and blood, but remains indomitable in her quest for justice.

 

 

Well I was planning on reading my Fear the Drowning Deep book, but look what's in transit on its way to the library for me to collect.

IROG Sponsors the Most Joyful Game in Town: Gift-Giving

image

 

For 4 consecutive years, every 16th of September, IROG is consistently donating baby needs to the newly born at San Marcelino Hospital in Zambales in memory of the chairperson’s late husband, Joel Castillo.

 

What does the cool gentle breeze of the Brrr-months bring to mind? Well, aside from the need to bring out one’s thick blankets and sporty jackets, what else but thoughts of endless partying among relatives and friends (yes, we are referring to that Filipino penchant for year-long and, more so, year-end festivities) until and beyond the onset of the New Year. More specifically, we refer to the happiest blessing of receiving and giving gifts.
 
Be it as small as a keychain, or a Bluetooth speaker, or as generous as a karaoke machine (a car will do, too), the joy that gifts bring is both a product of an act of faith and love as well as a childhood-bred instinct that is almost as essential as breathing itself. And so, we need to give and to receive as often as we inhale and exhale in order to remain truly healthy.
 
No other group understands this principle as intimately as IROG does. IROG (Isabelita Rosueta Organization) once more looks forward to its Annual Gift-giving Activity this year, its members get busy setting the ground for another opportunity to bring joy and cheer to the families who need caring and attention.

In the past, IROG extended help to the mothers and their newborn babies in San Marcelino Hospital. Every 16th of September, infants received a bag of essential baby needs, such as diapers, feeding bottles and some baby dresses, along with baby mattress pads and pillows. The happiness felt by the nursing mothers was shared equally by IROG gift-givers as they saw the smiles and felt the warm gratitude of the recipients. When we selflessly and cheerfully give to a baby who is the best gift from Heaven to the world, for we were all once babies and new life-bearers, we actually give to ourselves. For only then can the Giver of Life find us worthy to have received precious life. For when giving ends, life ends as well.
 
Aside from giving gifts to mothers and their babies, IROG has also sponsored school gift-giving events at Sto. Tomas Elementary School, Subic, Zambales from the very start of its operations as a socially-oriented foundation. Giving is, in a way, the game and the winners are both the giver and the recipient. Hence, nobody loses in this game!
 
Spearheading this awaited annual event is the kindhearted and dynamic IROG chairperson, who along with her late husband, Joel, believes in the maxim that “no matter what life brings you, keep on moving forward and stay positive”. IROG throbs and thrives because its corporate soul has both seen and experienced life at its best and worst phases and, in the process, nurtured a living common spirit that seeks to face life with resolve and dedication to make every moment count as a blessing to be shared and cherished by all. And that means one’s family, friends, neighbors and others in the community. A family can only find meaning and security if it is truly connected to the community it finds itself in.
 
IROG continues to believe in many more good things to come for many people. Its small part in making people feel the good things in life will also usher in peace and multiply contentment in the blessings we all constantly receive from day-to-day.
