Tuesday Tales

Post your peek in the comments and share your favorite books!

Anne is reading
The Moonflower Vine by Jetta Carleton
The watch resumed. Soon, now, a stem would tremble, a faint shudder run through the vine, sensed more than seen. A leaf twitched. No, you imagined it. But yes, it moved! A light spasm shook the long pod. Slowly at first, then faster and faster, the green bud unfurled, the thin white edges of the bloom appearing and the spiral ascending, round and round and widening till at last the white horn of the moonflower, visible for the first time in the world, twisted open, pristine and perfect, holding deep in its throat a tiny jewel of sweat.

Ron is reading
The Jerusalem Post

Holly is still reading
The Little Broomstick by Mary Stewart
Then all at once the lane came to an end, and the little broomstick shot out of the comforting shadow of the hedgerows, across a smooth open meadow where, sharp below them on the starlit grass, scudded their flying shadow.

Lily is reading
Marshmallow by Clare Turlay Newberry
Suddenly Marshmallow sat up tall and stared at the cat, his soft nose twitching rapidly. He looked most inquisitive but not in the least alarmed.
What was this great striped animal, he wondered? Could it possibly be his mother in a new coat?
