"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 (64)

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!

Christian Schoon
May 7, 2013

          "Checklists, novice," he said.  Apparently, the lecture wasn't over yet.  "We have them for a reason.  What's the first item on the list when treating mega-fauna?"
          "Big animals are dangerous.  Small mistakes are deadly," she intoned, her face going even redder as she recited this, the most basic principle of all.
          I know what went wrong, Otha.

I'm really loving this book!  I have the awesome opportunity to be part of the blog tour, and I can't wait for you all to read my review!  This world that Schoon is building has so much potential.  I love Zenn, but it could go out past her story.  It feels very Ender's Gamesque, in terms of world building.  But it has this fun added aspect with exoveterinarians that aren't in many books (vets in general I mean).  I encourage you all to check it out in May!
