"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 (23)

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be ReadingAnyone 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!
    Mastiff by Tamora Pierce

         "He's also made the lords and the mages furious with the new taxes," said the one who wanted our job turned over to the Ferrets.  "I wouldn't pay a copper cole for His majesty's life these days."
          "You talk treason," the first speaker said harshly.
          "I didn't say I wanted it," the Ferret-lover replied.  "But do you think half of us would be greeting the Black God right now if His Majesty was still his old, lazy self?"
    (Page 80)
I LOVE Tamora Pierce, and I am so excited to read the rest of Mastiff.  The Beka Cooper series is one of my favorite series of Tamora's, and if any of you are interested in reading it I would suggest checking out her other series too!  They are all great!
