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!

My teaser this week is from Over My Dead Body by Michele Bardsley (pg. 239).

After I thought I’d killed him in Las Vegas, underneath all that guilt and self-immolation was relief.  He could never hurt me or Glory again.  We were free.

And then the bastard had the audacity not to die.

It’s more than two sentences but I thought all four were needed.  🙂

What’s your teaser?

My Teasers:

“‘Fourteen or fifteen years ago, as a much younger man, I reported on the…events…of certain drawing-room mystics and on the credulity of those gathered to watch such things.  I am a modern man, Inspector Field, which in my droodgeneration translates to ‘a man of little belief.'”
