I still have both of these stories on the brain...

Last Friday morning, before going to see Harry Potter, I finished Ender's Game by Orson Scott Card. I read it in three days. It is amazing. Card is incredible at creating a rich plot with well developed characters, as well as weaving in heavy subjects like religion, politics, love, friendship, and, above all, what it really means to be human. It's a total page turner; I couldn't put it down. And Ender is now in my top ten of favorite fiction characters. I'll now read anything by Orson Scott Card.

I also saw Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows part 2 on Friday and it was also incredible. I saw it in 3D, which just adds to the magic :)  It followed the book fairly closely, which I liked, until the very end; Hollywood just can't help but be overly dramatic. But I liked it anyway. In my mind, Daniel Radcliffe, Emma Watson, and Rupert Grint will always be Harry, Hermione, and Ron. They were perfect. I'm really going to miss having a Harry Potter movie to look forward to. I suppose I'm just going to have to buy the rest of them as I only own the first four...Anyway, great movie. If you haven't seen it yet, do!

P.S. We still have Pottermore to look forward to!

Okay, if you recommend Ender's Game, I'm definitely picking it up. You'll also love Orson Scott Card's Enchantment and The Lost Gate. Highly recommend those two.

And I went on Saturday to see Harry Potter. I think I need to go again, just to pretend like it's not all over.
