"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 (67)

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!

          Part of me always knew that first summer with Craig was too good to be true, and of course, I was right.  Beth Morgan sunk her talons into him on the second day of school sophomore year, and there was no turning back.  My dream scenario of being Craig's reason for living vanished overnight, I got demoted to the gawky "kid sis" while the marauding Miss Morgan was granted saliva-swapping privileges.

With my English Education background, I'm always on the look out for books that can be used in a classroom curriculum.  Books that take classic stories and remix them are great examples, and the Bard's works are always abounding throughout the YA collection.  Exposure is no exception, re-imaging Macbeth in a modern day.  This is The 2nd book in the series, Twisted Lit Novels by Merit Press; Book 1 is Twisted, a new take on The Tempest.  Check them both out!


  1. Sounds like a good book! Thanks for sharing:)

  2. I do enjoy Shakespeare and the retelling of his plays, so I need to check this out.
