  1. We listened to Ender’s Game on audiobook years ago, while driving to visit family. Such a good book! The new movie doesn’t do justice to the book. My husband now has most of the books plus the graphic novels. ๐Ÿ™‚ What did you think of Jodi Picoult? I’ve read several of her books but always ended up disappointed by the ending. ๐Ÿ˜ฆ I love Dr. Chapman’s books too – I think I have most of his marriage books. He has great advice. ๐Ÿ™‚

    • It was my first time reading Ender’s Game, but I enjoyed it! Then I started it again, reading it out loud to my husband on our last road trip. ๐Ÿ™‚ After he and I finish it, we’ll watch the movie. It does seem like usually the movies are not as good as the books though. The Storyteller was the first book I have read by Jodi Picoult. I mostly really liked it. It was very well written, and very thought-provoking. I didn’t necessarily like the way it ended, but I did like how the author didn’t necessarily answer the questions she raised. She just kind of guided the reader through the story and through their own ethical thought processes. This book had to do with WWII and concentration camps, and those historical sections were hard to stomach. It is always so awful reading about what happened, especially when it is from as vivid a writer as Jodi Picoult.
