"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 (21): Better Late than Never!

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!
    Rot & Ruin by Jonathan Maberry

         The Lost Girl's eyes held infinite answers, but he couldn't hear a word.  He sighed, tucked the card into his pocket, and headed into the house.

         Fifteen minutes later Tom tried to kill Benny with a sword.

    I've started reading this for my Spooktacular Books Challenge (you guys should join up with this!) as my required zombie book.  I have to say that the world building is amazing so far, and the pacing is quick.  I started it this morning and I'm almost done!  Definitely should check it out!
