"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 (69)

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 Carnival at Bray 
Jessie Ann Foley
October 1, 2014

 "One by one, she watched the lights of the carnival booths winking out, and still the ride climbed higher.  She looked east, out to where there was nothing but waves and darkness.  Breathing in the dampness, Maggie wondered what would happen if she tumbled out of her seat, splashing into the lapping nothingness, and how long it would take before someone noticed she was gone." (pg. 8)

This is the book of the month for the YA Book Club I go to at Inkwood Books (come join us if you live in Tampa, FL).  I've just started it, but I'm hooked.  I love that it's set in the 90s grunge music era and has a large focus on music.  Music is so important, and I know growing up, my friends and I used music to channel EVERYTHING we were feeling.  Jessie Ann Foley captures this perfectly so far, and I'm excited to finish the book out.  If you've already read The Carnival at Bray, let me know what you thought!
