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.

Mr Kunkworth flushed bright pink and a terrifically stinky smell rose about him.
‘Do you have our room key?’asked Mrs Kunkworth, hurriedly. ‘I’m so dreadfully sorry. It always happens when he gets a fright.’
Anna covered her nose and attempted to smile. She handed over the room keys as Lemmy grabbed their bags.
‘This way!’ he garbled, struggling to breathe.

“You slept through breakfast,” Simon says, “but it was awful.”
“Snow was very excited about continental breakfast,” Baz says.
“It’s not what you think.” Simon frowns. It’s not French stuff. It’s just really sad pastries and bad tea. Oh and you missed Baz eating a squirrel.”
“I didn’t eat the squirrel.”
“Oh, sorry, you drank it, and threw its little squirrel body in the ditch.”

I flipped today’s date around 5-11 to 11-5, and that is the page I picked, 115.

A pang of guilt shot through me when I remembered how I’d felt just a few weeks ago: that it would be great if the library closed and I didn’t have  to work here.
Suddenly that was the absolute last thing I wanted.

SAM SAVES THE NIGHT, Shari Simpson, Sleepwalkers, Ghosts, Girl, Boy, Puppeteer,
I first had Random.org select a %, but while getting to that percentage I saw another interesting teaser just a bit before it, on 15%. 😛

The next morning, Sam woke up, jumped up, and shrieked “Evil twin!” all at the same time. Her heart drumming, she laserfocused downward. From the looks of the pale legs tangled in the sheets, it appeared that she was in her bed again, but her eyes flew over to see if there was a second Sam haunting the space beneath the windowsill.

This time I had random.org select a chapter (8), and from that I picked a page/teaser from that.

There was a low moan, and Benny turned to see a gray-skinned man shuffling slowly around the corner of the building. He wore ancient coveralls that were stained with dark blotches and, incongruously, a garland of fresh flowers around his neck. Marigolds and honeysuckle. The man’s face was shaded for a few steps, but then he crossed into the sunlight, and Benny nearly screamed. The man’s eyes were missing and the sockets gaped emptily.

Teaser Tuesday ~ All Eyes On Us

All Eyes On Us, Kit Frick, Black, Pink Letters, Photographs, Black/White, Young Adult, Thriller, Mystery, LGBT
For a minute, there’s nothing, then a long shadow falls across the grass, caught in the lamp’s yellow light. Someone is standing around back, on the grass that separates the shed from the mudroom. Someone very tall and willowy, or made so in their shadow’s elongated cast. My breath catches, and the figure disappears.

Teaser Tuesday ~ Wilder Girls

Teaser Tuesday ~ Wilder Girls

Wilder Girls, Green/Gray, Girl, Slices, Flowers, White Shirt, Rory Power, Horror

I had Random.org select a % and it went with 16%.

I stood up, laughing, but then blood started dripping out of my right eye. Slowly at first, and then faster and faster, running down my cheeks and pooling in my mouth. Hot like it was about to boil, and I started to cry because I couldn’t see.

I had random.org select a % for me and it selected 20%.

Talk of it was quickly shushed by teachers in classrooms and hallways, but there was no way to truly silence several hundred teenagers who had just witnessed the juiciest bit of gossip to hit the academy since Elizabeth Reynolds, student council vice president, had a nervous breakdown two years ago and attempted to blow up her smartwatch in the chem lab using a highly combustible potassium chlorate solution.
