"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 (75)

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by Jenn of A Daily Rhythm. 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!

      Her sword slide out of its sheath with barely a whine.  She took a shuddering breath, bracing herself for what would come next.
      Lord Nirall's eyes flew open just as the King's Champion raised her sword over her head.

I have no clue why I hadn't started this series sooner!  I devoured Throne of Glass, the first book in the series in one day, and moved on to the second, Crown of Midnight, as soon as I was done.  Ack, it is so good!  Engrossing story line with enough twists to keep you on your toes.  A fully developed world and characters that just make you want more.  And soul throughout the book guiding the words along.  I HIGLY recommend you read this series; I know most people already know that, but if you're one of the few like me, that had it sitting on the shelf just waiting, DON'T WAIT ANY MORE!!!


  1. I have been reading this series since it came out. The most recent is still on my stack though. My YA teaser this week comes from Secrets of the Dragon Tomb by Patrick Samphire which is a fun science fiction title set on Mars. Happy reading!

  2. Sounds like a good YA. Here's my teaser from a Josephine Tey puzzler: http://wp.me/p4DMf0-16A

  3. I liked this series too.


Thanks so much for stopping by; I love to hear from you!

Happy reading!!!!
