"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 (33)

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!
Ruby Red 
by Kerstin Gier
Publication Date: May 10, 2011

         My heart was thumping like crazy.  There must be something wrong with me.  Without being on an actual carnival ride, you couldn't possibly feel dizzy this often without something being terribly wrong.
         Unless . . . oh, nonsense!  I was probably just growing too fast.  Or I had . . .I had a brain tumor?  Or maybe, I thought, brushing that nasty notion aside, it was only that I was hungry.
(Page 24)

Ruby Red is the first book in an amazing trilogy by Kerstin Gier!  First published in Germany, it was (finally) picked up by Henry Holt and published in America.  I'm so glad they did because it is such a great book!  Really funny, and intriguing!  Can't wait until Sapphire Blue and Emerald Green are printed in the US to complete the trilogy!


  1. Thanks for posting such a funny teaser. Haven't we all turned a headache into a brain tumor or a stomach ache into appendicitis ... in our imaginations? I'm ordering this book right now.
    Here's my teaser: Sandy's Teaser

  2. That girl definitely has an imagination, huh? I haven't read this one but it looks good!


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

Happy reading!!!!
