"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 (72)

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by Jenn of A Daily Rhythm. 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!

      Our Dragon doesn't eat the girls he takes, no matter what stories they tell outside our valley. 
(pg. 1)

I can't gush enough about this book!  As you can see, from line one the narrative grabs you and takes you on a journey.  It is a journey both familiar and alien, like you're stepping into a dream you once had.  Each character in this book is necessary to the story, and feel like whole, complete people, even if they are only in the book for a few pages.  Novik is a craftswoman at the highest degree, and I want to live in the world of Uprooted.  If you don't read but one book this year, make it this one!


  1. Let's hope your teaser is correct!
