Tuesday Tales

A weekly peek at what we're reading. 
Post your peek in the comments and share your favorite books!

Anne is reading
Masquerade by Nancy Moser

Lottie preferred experiencing life through novels where the characters were always enjoying a lovely ball or romp through the countryside that would lead them to their one true love.  Her copies of Pride and Prejudice, Sense and Sensibility, and Little Women were threadbare. 

Holly is reading
Between: A Girl's Guide to Life by Vicki Courtney

What causes the "I wish" trap?  Sometimes we compare ourselves to other people.  The crazy thing is that those "other people" are probably also comparing themselves to other people!  Or maybe you compare yourself to girls you see on television or in magazines who look perfect.  You know the ones I'm talking about.  They have perfect hair that is never messed up.  They have perfect skin and perfect legs and perfect everything.  Well, let me tell you a little secret about that.  They are really not as perfect as they look. 

Lily is reading
James and the Giant Peach by Roald Dahl

Aunt Sponge was enormously fat and very short.  She had small piggy eyes, a sunken mouth, and one of those white flabby faces that looked exactly as though it had been boiled.  She was like a great white soggy overboiled cabbage.  Aunt Spiker, on the other hand, was lean and tall and bony, and she wore steel-rimmed spectacles that fixed onto the end of her nose with a clip.
