Teaser Tuesday – Heart Shaped Box

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along! Just do the following:

  1. Grab your current read
  2. Open to a random page
  3. Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page
  4. 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!)
  5. Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!

I’m currently reading a book byJoe Hill, the son of my number one author, Stephen King. Like father like son, Joe also writes horror book. But don’t think that he only rides his father’s name, he had already won 2 Bram Stroker Awards.

The book I’m reading right now is called Heart-Shaped Box. This is his second book..

My teaser comes from page 93

He considered this, forming his reply slowly, and only with effort. At last he said, “I don’t think it would do any good, just to up and run. He isn’t haunting the house. He’s haunting me.”


    1. If he ever wrote such memoir…I’d love to read it too.

      The most interesting part is, Stephen King wrote ‘for my son, Joe Hill King, that always shine’ in his book (the Shining) and Joe wrote ‘for my dad, one of the good ones’ in this book

  1. This one is a lot darker than some of your previous teasers. I like it though 🙂 I hadn’t heard much about King’s son. I must check him out.

    1. eh? really? hehe I used to write lots of dark teaser. I love horror and thriller. This is my 1st book from him, I hope he will be able to continue the legacy

    1. I think it’ll still be from this book, I hope I can finish it before Tuesday, but small chance because I have mountain of works.

  2. I thought this book started well but went off the rails as it went along. (After I found out Joe Hill is Stephen King’s son that made sense to me as I’ve thought much of King’s later stuff has done the same thing.) But the beginning was creepy enough to carry me through to the end.

  3. That is really cool that King’s son is a writer too, and a horror writer at that. It’s interesting how often the apple falls close to the tree. Enjoy the book Novia. I have another Ghibli review coming your way very soon 🙂 Getting there.

Say something so I know you have read my post, THANK YOU for reading :)
