Teaser Tuesdays: March 23rd

teasertuesdays31 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 two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page
  • BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!)
  • Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!

My teaser this week comes from page 38 of Lamb by Christopher Moore:

To Joshua he said, “Kid, were you born in a stable?  Wrapped in swaddling cloths and lying in a manger?”

Joshua said nothing.

“That’s the way his mom tells it,” I said.

“Is he retarded?”

“I think you’re his first angel.  He’s impressed, I think.”

Sorry for the extra long teaser again, but I figured it’s fair since it’s all dialogue.  😉  I just started this book tonight and am loving it!



  1. Sounds interesting. I haven’t read any Christopher Moore.Thanks for visiting my blog.

  2. Kathy Martin Said:

  3. i haven’t read him, either.

  4. Nice! It only gets better from there – Moore is a comedic genius!

    • Jamye Said:

      I decided to give him a try after reading about him on your blog. 🙂 It’s fantastic so far! Kinda reminds me of Good Omens by Neil Gaiman & Terry Pratchett.

  5. pussreboots Said:

    I liked the first third and last third but HATED the middle. My teaser is from Un Lun Dun.

  6. Novroz Said:

    sounds intresting and makes me curious what’s it about

  7. Deb Said:

    I have two or three of his books: Practical Demonkeeping and The Island of the Sequined Love Nun (something like that anyway). Humor is good. Enjoy.

    • Wanda Said:

      Oh, I’ve been wanting to read his Stupidest Angel for awhile now, even had it home from the library last X-mas but never quite got around to it. Sounds like this one is infused with Moore’s trademark humour as well!

      • Jamye Said:

        Okay, just the title of that one cracks me up!

  20. Zia Said:

    That’s an interesting teaser. I’m curious.

  21. Okay, I have never ever read Christopher Moore, and have always been uber curious… I have never even cracked open a book to have a look, I just have never thought about it! But if THIS is what his book are like I am going to go to the library TOMORROW and pick one up! HILARIOUS!!!

    Here’s mine:

    • Jamye Said:

      I know, I’ve been curious for a while too but I borrowed this one from my cousin (thanks D!) and I’m SO glad!
