Top 10 Reasons to Skip School and Read (Preferably My Book, But Any Book Will Do)
1 You aren’t going to learn anything important in class today that the book hasn’t already told you how to do.
After all, most books are written by geniuses. And if they can’t tell you how to do it, how is anyone else going to be able to help?
2 Coffee tastes better when you are up to no good.
3 Required Reading Isn’t Important.
It’s required because it’s not important. If it was really important, I mean important in a world-historical way, it would be so incredible you would have already read it.
4 Perfect Attendance is Perfectly Absurd.
Just like it’s impossible to get a 100 on every test and quiz, it’s impossible to be in class 100 percent of the time. Shouldn’t this lecture be distilled into 3 power point slides, so that you can get the most important information as quickly as possible? This is how the leading CEOs of the world make decisions, why should it be any different for you?
5 Your Professor Doesn’t Care.
Doesn’t have Tenure? Cares even less.
6 Your Teacher Secretly Applauds Your Absenteeism.
Your teacher used to skip class too—to read.
7 Getting through that next cliff hanger is the most important thing you will do today.
Let’s be honest.
8 Ok, getting through the next cliff hanger is the most important thing you will do today.
Let’s be really honest.
9 You HAVE TO FINISH THE BOOK TODAY YOUR LIFE DEPENDS ON IT.
Let’s be brutally honest.
10 You Can Fearlessly Use the Internet Again!
You can browse twitter, facebook, read your favorite blogs, and oh talk to people again without fear that they will ruin one of life’s true joys.
For fans of Divergent, Red Rising, and The Hunger Games comes a gripping new tale of ambition, treachery, and love.
When what appears as a prank on arrogant ambassadors at an exotic vacation city turns out to be the first tremors of a revolution, the Enlightened Council of Castillia turns to its 11-year old undefeated military prodigy and her loyal Guardians for help.
After all, it was Innocence who liberated the Jewel of All Cities in the first place. Everyone knows she will be the last to let it slip from her grasp.
But why would anyone want to leave Castillia? Its laws are just. Its Council is democratically elected. It has liberated more cities than any other Republic, past or present.
But Castillia has enemies, that’s for sure.
Sedition is the favorite trick of the southern Republic Ausonia. In fact, the exotic vacation city used to belong to Ausonia—and they have always wanted it back.
But could those hedonists really organize anything between all their dancing and drinking?
Or has Vesper, the mighty Republic to the North finally woken from its slumber? It has plenty of old scores to settle with Castillia and it’s palm-lined streets.
Squashing the uprising and re-uniting the town and her city could be the perfect way to end the most legendary military career Castillia has ever known and begin a new, exhilarating life as a prominent politician.
But it also might just be the perfect way to start what Innocence has secretly always yearned for: her own Empire.
