Heart Shaped Box by Joe Hill

So, I am typing this from my phone as I have satellite Internet and I have gone over my threshold so I apologize in advance for any typos and no pictures :(

Judas Coyne is a 54-year-old rock star who is fascinated with the occult. When his assistant shows him an online auction to but a ghost, he jumps on it. Too bad for Jude, his assistant and his twenty-something was the worst mistake of his life! After the ghost arrives in a heart shaped box, Jude and his girlfriend find themselves racing for their lives! This book has it all...ghosts, love story, creepiness and mystery!

I loved this book and despite the fact that I was so busy with the start of school, I could not put it down! I loved the character and really enjoyed the fact that Jude was older. Joe Hill write brilliantly, Judy like his father Stephen King! This book drew me in from the first page, with the descriptions of Jude's occult collection and kept me enthralled through the end! This book was completely unpredictable and I loved all the twists and turns!


  1. It's been awhile since I read this one, but I remember liking it. And being totally creeped out by it. I loved the originality of the plot, too. Nice Fall/Halloween read!

  2. Hi,

    Stopping by via the hop.

    I haven't actually heard of this book but it sounds good - glad you enjoyed it =)
