"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

Shadow and Bone 
by Leigh Bardugo
Publication Date: June 5, 2012

         "No fainting in the middle of the road," said a voice close to my ear as a heavy arm landed across my shoulder and gave me a squeeze. I looked up to see Mal's familiar face, a smile in his bright blue eyes as he fell into step beside me. "C'mon," he said. "One foot in front of the other. You know how it's done."        
(Pg. 73)

I am slowly working on my summer TBR list, and this is the 2nd book on it!  Shadow and Bone looks amazing!  I really like Russian culture, and Ravka, the main country in the book, looks to have similar cultural traits, so that's cool.  Of course, finding out all about the Grisha and what their purpose is will be cool too.  I can't wait to find out what happens to Mal and Alina through out the book, especially when Alina figures out she's more than what she thinks!
