"Saying 'I notice you're a nerd' is like saying, 'Hey, I notice that you'd rather be intelligent than be stupid, that you'd rather be thoughtful than be vapid, that you believe that there are things that matter more than the arrest record of Lindsay Lohan. Why is that?' In fact, it seems to me that most contemporary insults are pretty lame. Even 'lame' is kind of lame. Saying 'You're lame' is like saying 'You walk with a limp.' Yeah, whatever, so does 50 Cent, and he's done all right for himself."— John Green


Teaser Tuesday (11)

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be ReadingAnyone can play along! Just do the following!
  • Grab your current read.
  • Open to a random page.
  • Share a few teaser sentences from somewhere on that page.
  • MAKE SURE NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (you don't want to give too much away and ruin the book for other readers)
  • Share the title and author too, so that other readers can add your book to their TBR list if they like your teaser!
Fallen Grace by Mary Hooper

     "A Seven Dials breakfast? What's that?" asked Lily with interest.
     "It's a joke," Grace said. "It's nothing. Nothing at all."
     "But how can it be a breakfast, then? I don't understand."
     Grace squeezed her sister's hand. "It's just a saying Lily. It's suppose to be droll."
     "I'd rather it was breakfast."

I had the luck to win this from New Books for New Bloggers (which is an amazing blog for new book bloggers!) It is a Dickinson-esque tale following to sisters, Lily and Grace.  It is a pitch perfect book filled with reference and historical facts placing the reader directly into Victorian London.  Pick it up if you love historical fiction, it is fantastic!
