"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 (68)

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!

          Locked in her cell, alone but for the drip of water and the slow beat of her heart, the girl knew the stories of Izumrud were true.  She had been swallowed whole, devoured, and in the echoing alabaster belly of the White Cathedral, only the Saint remained.
(pg. 2)

Uh, if you haven't read The Grisha Trilogy by Leigh Bardugo, you need to come out of your sad rock because IT IS AMAZING!!  Ruin and Rising is the last book in the trilogy, and I LOVE it!  Such a strong female protagonist, and a really captivating and complex world.  The characters are all multi-dimension, and there are surprises all over the place.  Worth reading because from pg. 1 of the first book, Shadow and Bone, you will be hooked!  GO!  Grab your own copy noooooowwwww!!!
