The Rest of Us Just Live Here {Sneak Peek}

Welcome to Sneak Peek Saturday!

Sneak Peek Saturday on Reading List  a glimpse into what I am reading currently

Current book:
The Rest of Us Just Live Here
by Patrick Ness

The Rest of Us Just Live Here
Goodreads Summary:
What if you aren’t the Chosen One? The one who’s supposed to fight the zombies, or the soul-eating ghosts, or whatever the heck this new thing is, with the blue lights and the death?

What if you’re like Mikey? Who just wants to graduate and go to prom and maybe finally work up the courage to ask Henna out before someone goes and blows up the high school. Again.

Because sometimes there are problems bigger than this week’s end of the world, and sometimes you just have to find the extraordinary in your ordinary life.

Even if your best friend is worshipped by mountain lions.

Award-winning writer Patrick Ness’s bold and irreverent novel powerfully reminds us that there are many different types of remarkable.

Sneak Peek:

He grinds his cigarette out with his foot. Then he picks up the butt and looks around for somewhere to throw it away so he's not littering, which, okay is maybe not the action of a killer.
Still. (pg 146) 

Initial Thoughts: 
Once when I was younger I started writing a story about the best friend of a hero character. Patrick Ness has stolen my idea. I'm only 18 pages in, so I guess that isn't totally fair to say...but still. This little sneak peek shows me what I have to look forward to with the narrator's quirky voice!
