Teaser Tuesdays

TEASER TUESDAYS asks you to:

  • Grab your current read.
  • Let the book fall open to a random page.
  • Share with us two (2) “teaser” sentences from that page, somewhere between lines 7 and 12.
  • You also need to share the title of the book that you’re getting your “teaser” from … that way people can have some great book recommendations if they like the teaser you’ve given!
  • Please avoid spoilers!

My teaser for today:

He looked down at the ghost, and at the same time the dead man lifted his head and his eyes rolled open. But where his eyes belonged was only a black scribble.




(Pg 61, Heart-Shaped Box by Joe Hill)

    What a fun meme Melody! I didn't know you've become a vegetarian. How is that going? I would be a vegetarian except that I do love a good burger every couple of months! haha...

    By the way, Heart-Shaped Box is so good and creepy. I hope you enjoy it!

    Autumn's my favourite season too! In fact, it was my nick for ICQ chat long, long time ago. LOL!

    I'll be starting HEART-SHAPED BOX after finishing SHUTTER ISLAND. :)


  12. Melody Says:

    Oh, that's great! I can't wait to hear what you'll think of HEART-SHAPED BOX! :)


  13. Ceri Says:

    I'm so excited that you're reading Heart Shaped Box - I can't tell you how much I'm looking forward to your review - whether you enjoyed it or not. I'm a huge Stephen King fan and read Joe's Heart Shaped Box when it first came out. I really enjoyed it and I've yet to meet anyone else who has read it yet.


  14. Melody Says:

    Ceri - I'm enjoying it so far, Ceri! It's creepy!!


  15. Ladytink_534 Says:

    Isn't this such a great book?! It seemed to read more like a screenplay than a book to me at least but I still liked it. Hope they make the film soon!
