"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 (56)

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone 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!
This is Not a Test

         Thud.  I end up on my knees.  I'm dripping with sweat and my stomach is churning and the sound I heard was not the sound of myself falling and landing but--thud.
        I turn my head to the exit.
(Pg. 48)

This is a super creepy book, and not just because of the zombies.  The reality of Sloane's life is way more scary than the zombies because it is hidden behind a layer of normality.  I'm almost finished, and I love it so much.  I feel like there isn't going to be a happy ending, but weirdly I'm okay with that.  Just an engrossing read that I'm glad I have.


  1. Ahhh! What was going THUD?? I don't usually read zombie books but I do love creepy. Great teaser! :)
