Grab a book, open to a random page (either by flipping through it, using a randomizer, or let my husband pick), and pick a part of the book that speaks to me (can be anywhere from 2 to 6 sentences), add a cover, done.

On the verge of tearing out her hair, she made up her mind to leave. If you stay, you’re going to lose your mind. If you go, get away from the box, maybe you’ll be able to relax. Anyway, it’s daytime -plenty of sun left in the sky. With any luck, you won’t encounter any of those terrible things.

For the rest of the day (with several breaks like shady naps, water bowl slurps, and mini-burger bites), Air Fur One entertained our guests with his incredible antics.
Nobody wanted to the leave the Wonderland. They wanted to play Frolf with the world’s cutest and furriest caddie. It was amazing to watch the dog do the one thing he loved more than anything in the world: chase after a floating disc, acrobatically snag his target, and trot back triumphantly.
In the afternoon, Jimbo and I taught Air Fur One a new trick: dunking!

There’s the snow bank. I’m tossed into flight, and Meathook stumbles.
MEATHOOK DOWN!
The shield lands hard on the street. It’s all balck ice. I’m about to flip, but then-
‘GOTCHA, DUDE!’ June shouts.
I look down – June has me by my wrist. I lunge and grab Quint’s hand. Quint swings then clings to Dirk. ‘Human action geek chain!’ I exclaim. ‘I love it!’

“We’re here, Brother,” she said, and it was as if Matt opened his eyes for the first time.
Massive vines lined the ground and trees of an immense forest. The sun creeping through the thickened branches all around them. Humidity ruled here, and through the foliage where daylight struggled for dominance, Matt heard whispers, a multitude of hushed voices.

The boat slid on across dark waters. When Magnus looked behind him, he saw the last sparks of his magic sinking and vanishing into the depths. The sparks winked, bright blue and brilliant white, the gentle ripples of the canal becoming by turns rich purple, pale pearl, and inky black under the not-yet-morning sky. The water was suffused with a final luminescence before his blue sparks drowned. Magnus slid his fingers gently through Alec’s wild, soft hair, and felt Alec’s head turn toward him a little in half sleep. He heard Malcolm singing and remembered again his words from long ago.
I do not every want another love.

When he looked up, Max was watching him.
Their gazes locked, and Jeremy’s breath stuttered. Snowflakes drifted between them, and Max’s eyes dropped. He’d taken off his glove and he brushed Jeremy’s bottom lip with a fingertip.
“Snowflake,” he murmured.

I’ve managed to cut some of their lead by the time I run past the empty case where they put out the fresh-cut fruit every morning. But it’s no contest – I’m going to be dead last. A stitch in my side takes the last of my speed, and I have to walk the final ten yards or so with the heel of my hand bracing my rib.

“Maybe you should take a break, Unni. You look miserable – and you’re going to give yourself premature forehead wrinkles.”
Leah sists cross-legged on my bed, snacking on a bag of honey butter chaips. I guess there’s one Kim sister who shares Korea’s obsession with turning salty snacks into sweet ones.
I frown at her in the wall mirror and lean forward to inspect my reflection, smoothing my hand across my forehead. “What wrinkles?”
