"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 (57)

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!
Dust & Decay
by Jonathan Maberry
Publication Date: August 30, 2011

         "Shoot him, Tom!" yelled the town postman.
         "No!" screamed two voices in unison, and Benny looked up to see the Houser twins at the upstairs window. "Grandpa!" they cried, their voices as shrill as frightened birds.
          "Shoot him," whispered Morgie under his breath, and Benny turned to look at him. Morgie's face was wet with nervous sweat. "Shoot him."
(Pg. 25)

Another zombie book, but one of the literal best out there!  Jonathan Maberry knocks it out of the freaking park with this series!  The first book, Rot & Ruin, sets up a world that is so possible it's scary.  The amount of research that goes into his books is amazing as well.  I can't wait to find out what happens to Benny and the gang in Dust & Decay; I'm sure some very scary and violent things.
