Very true, all of them, but I love the one by Agatha Christie.ReplyDelete
That's my favorite, too.Delete
Those are some great quotes! I keep a list of quotes from books but I'm not quite sure what to do with them....ReplyDelete
Save them up for a post! (Then the rest of us can enjoy them, too.)Delete
Scary books always scare me thoroughly...I remember Bloody Mary stories told to me by older kids when I was little, and they sufficiently scared me to remember them even now. Glad this book gave you some Halloween chills.ReplyDelete
Oops, I meant to leave this comment for Your review above. As for the quotes, the one which speaks to me most is about not trying to be two things at once (in reference to the chess pieces).Delete
That's a great quote isn't it? And thanks for both your comments. :) I've never forgotten the Bloody Mary story either.Delete
