"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 (24)


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!

    First Test by Tamora Pierce

             I want to be like that, she told herself as she always did.  I want to protect people.  And I will.  I will.  I'll be a hero one day, just like Mama.  Just like the Lioness.
         Nobody will kill two kittens in front of me then.

Since I just finished reading Mastiff, which is the last book in the Beka Cooper series by Tamora Pierce, I'm back in a little bit of a craze with her books!  I get this way sometimes; I'll not have read a book by an author in a while, then all of sudden BAM! I have to read all there books over again.  This is why I can't ever get rid of my books!  First Test is a great female empowerment book, and has fantastical elements along with a lot of knight stuff.  All things I love.  Check out all of Tamora Pierce's series if you haven't already!
