Grab a current read, open to a random page (either by flipping through it, using a randomizer, or let my boyfriend pick), and pick 2 (or more) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page, write them down, pick a cover, and done.

Credit for this one (though I changed Tuesday to Thursday): Should Be Reading blog

Edit: This used to be on Thursday, but I am changing it to Tuesday as it works better that way.

When I got home I found out that Baarbara had been caught stealing red-hoofed. Even our goats are kleptomaniacs!
Mum was shouting at her in Chinese. I asked what had happened and Mum said that Baarbara had chewed through the last of the fence post, escaped and sneaked through the kitchen into the shop. Mum heard a ‘ping’, and when she went to investigate, Baarbara was standing there munching away on twenty pounds’ worth of fivers.

I flipped through the book and stopped when I thought it was right which turned out to be page 33.

I stood up, sighing, and stepped inside, while she went on to Room 1.
I got a surprise when I saw the room, for I had expected it to be the image of ours – all pale blue chintz and potted plants  and fringed lamps. But this room was rather more masculine, red papered walls covered with sporting scenes and a large iron-framed bed, its sheets tumbled back restlessly.

‘Dangerous things!’ Karl cried, flinging his arms out so dramatically one of them nearly fell off. ‘B-b-book…’
‘The books are dangerous?’ asked Amelia, puzzled.
‘No, no…’ Karl took a deep breath and said quite clearly: ‘Bookworms!’

Cinders had turned two mice into horses, but only one had turned back into a mouse. The other stood in front of her, still very much a horse, but with shiny whiskers and a long pink tail.
“Oh,” Cinders said.
“Squeak,” replied the horse-mouse.

Peter turned away and watched Bud’s canoe disappear inside the snow. Over by the shore, something disturbed the pines. Snow tumbled from a bough and a pale hand withdrew round the back of a tree trunk. Peter opened his mouth to reassure his dad that he could take whatever the committee decided, but the words weren’t there any more than the feelings was. When he looked back across the water at the tree, a woman-shaped thing was standing there.

“All that body-slamming and kicking? Fake. The tension between rivals? Fake. Heck, even this gold belt? Fake! The winners are all decided beforehand. Good thing they picked you to win, huh?”
Isabella couldn’t believe the whole thing was staged. She felt like such a fraud. She wanted to win for real, not for fake. So she body-slammed Lucy. For real.

‘Ah!’ said Flora, waggling her eyebrows. ‘We have a secret weapon…’
‘Is it a rocket launcher?’ asked Wogan. ‘I bet it’s a rocket launcher.’
‘No, Wogan. It isn’t,’ replied Flora to Wogan, who looked crestfallen. ‘It’s Charlie.’

He held my gaze as he slowly lifted one finger after another, releasing my wrist. That bitter knot was back in my throat. The Prince had let go and his heavy lashes lowered, shielding his powerful gaze, but I swore I could still feel it. “My apologies,” he murmured. “That was uncalled for.”

A Polaroid photo shows Jenna with her arm around a girl in pigtails, Pearl’s age, with Rick’s amber-flecked eyes. They’re grinning like a pair of thieves over ice-cream cones. Shelly. Rick’s sister. This girl is totally in love with Rick. Her sweetness feels at odds with the girl on the phone, and yet this letter-writing pal of Rick’s little sister must be the girl he loves – and I’m standing here reading his private mail.
Rick’s staring at his phone, as if he can bring her here by telepathy.
