"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 (66)

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!

          Living here I should be use to death.  But every time a procession goes by, I wonder about the person inside the hearse.  Did they live happily but die horribly? Or maybe the lived horribly but died happily?  Or worse, maybe the lived horribly and died horribly.
(pg. 11)

I met Jenny Torres Garcia at the Sunshine Author Tour last month, and she was talking about this book!  I wanted to read it so badly, so I am SO excited to be a part of the blog tour for it!  It is really good so far, quirky and full of black humor.  It is a unique contemporary, and it is definitely going to be added to my favorite books of 2013!  Check out for yourself on May 28th, and read her other book, The Downside of Being Charlie, in the mean time!
