"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


Waiting on Wednesday (35)

Waiting On Wednesday is a weekly meme, hosted at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we seriously can’t wait for.

 Here's my pick for the week, that I seriously can't wait for:

Publication Date: January 2, 2013
There isn't a summary released yet, but I LOVED The Name of the Star, which was book 1 in the Shades of London series, so I'm sure I'll LOVE book 2.  I think what Maureen Johnson did with the first book was really original and very scary.  The cliffhanger at the end has me chomping at the bit to read the next one.  I definitely recommend you go out and pick up a copy to get ready for the release in January!!


  1. I've been wanting to read The Name of the Star for soo long! I must read it!
    My WOW

  2. I still need to read The Name of the Star! I must do that before this one comes out! :)

    My W.O.W.

  3. Absolutely! I'm not a fan of the cover, but I can't wait for this sequel to come out. The Name of the Star was more than awesome...it made me forever a Maureen Johnson fan. I particularly loved the little tidbits that she interjected about being an American in London. They were fun--and just the kinds of things I noticed as a visitor.


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

Happy reading!!!!
