"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 (25)

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!
The Pledge by Kimberly Derting

         The queen smiled.  The girl was ready; young but ready.
         She will be a beauty in her time, the queen thought, studying the girl's smooth porcelain skin and her soft, shining eyes.  She will be strong and powerful and feared, a force to be reckoned with.  Men will fall at her feet...
         ...and she will crush them.
(Page 5)
The Pledge has been on my to be read list for a while, so I was so glad to grab it from the library!  It looks so interesting, and I love the teaser I picked.  Definitely intriguing, isn't it? The cover is gorgeous!  I hope I love the inside as much as I love the outside!
