Teaser Tuesday: Scarper Jack & The Bloodstained Room


TEAser Tuesday is a weekly bookish meme hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along, just do as 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 any spoilers so as not to ruin the book for others!
Make sure to share the title and the author so other TT participants can add the book to their TBR piles!
My Teaser: Scarper Jack & The Bloodstained Room by Christopher Russell



"Jack had to jump to catch hold of the two dangling ends of cord. he grabbed them and tugged hard, testing that the grapnel was firmly lodged, then hauled himself hand over hand up the cord, with his feet braced against the house."
Page 72

What's your teasers?


In other news, I am off to Paris & Disneyland tomorrow for my first ever holiday!!! I am so excited, but this means that I will be away from my blog for a few days and will not be able to get comments or emails. I hope everyone enjoys the rest of the week and I will catch up with you all on Saturday when I get back :D

Sounds like an interesting book. Certainly has me wondering who Jack is and why is climbing a house. :)
