"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 (55)

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone 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!
The Diviners
by Libba Bray
Publication Date: September  18, 2012

         A pair of Blue Noses on the next bench glared their disapproval at Evie's knee-length dress.  Evie decided to give them a real show.  She hiked her skirt and, humming jauntily, rolled down her stockings, exposing her legs.  It had the desired effect on the Blue Noses, who moved down the platform, clucking about the "disgrace of the young."  She could not miss this place.
(Pg. 20)

Such a great mix of supernatural and historical!  I adore books set in the Jazz Age, when everyone still had no cares and the young were out wearing flapper and dapper wear while jitterbugging the night away.  Let me tell you, this is the bee's knees!  Evie is such a fun protagonist, but I just know she'll come to grow quite a bit through the story.  And the Museum of Creepy Crawlies is such an interesting place.  I can't wait to finish this masterpiece by Libba Bray!


  1. I was not a big fan of the Terrible Beauty series, but I've heard better reviews on this one. Maybe I'll give it a try.
