"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 (27)

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!
Hunger by Jackie Morse Kessler

         In her mind, she heard a cold voice whisper from the depths of a nightmare: "Thou art Famine."
         She stared at her plate.
         "Excuse me," she said, then stumbled off to the ladies' room to vomit.  Tammy would have been proud.

Hunger is book one in the Riders of the Apocalypse series by Jackie Morse Kessler.  It is one of the most intersting mythologys I've read in a while.  The idea that these teens with problems are tapped by Death himself to become on of the riders is fantastic!  I loved Hunger so much.  Lisa was such an interesting protagonist, and I loved the insight that Kessler created to these scary biblical figures, creating dimensions.  The second book in the series is Rage (can you guess which rider that one is about?), and it is on my shelf waiting for me to read it.
