Teaser Tuesday – Shelter
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!
I am currently reading an unpublished book called Shelter, written by Nicholas Jobe who happens to be a fellow movie blogger I met in Anomalous Material, a place where movie blogger mingle. Nick’s blog is Random Ramblings of a Demented Doorknob
He had written 8 novels and some novellas but none has been published yet. When I read his movie pitch, an adaptation of his own novel…I was so fascinated by the story and asked him to send it to me. He kindly sent it to me by email.
I have just finished it , and I’m loving it. It’s a shame that the book hasn’t had a chance to be published yet. It was really good. I would have written my review if my computer wasn’t being repaired.
a blood-soaked girl shows up at a police station requesting to speak with a specific detective—who doesn’t even know who she is—and he must figure out what happened to her and her family. They were supposedly trapped in an old bomb shelter by a demon, but was it really supernatural forces, or was it something more logical hiding behind the curtain?
The story was divided into 2 times, the past and the present. I am going to share 2 teasers to represent each time
Since the book has no page number, I will only write which chapter it came from
Aidyn and Scout were near banshees, while their father and Hackett stood back in uncertainty of what they have just witnessed. Mary reached out for them with a shaking arm. The two men ran toward her, but she was wrenched further into the dark wood by some invincible force.
“What the fuck,” he said slowly. He spun around the girl, who was looking right at him. “Tell me you saw that.”
I was tempted to share the bloody teaser but changed my mind because it was too graphic for some people.
