  2. No. I don't even know what made me add this title to my list. Probably reviewed in Entertainment Weekly. I'm thinking about putting together a 'gothic' list. I've read some good ones in the last couple of years.

  3. "Allowing herself a moment's hesitation, Percy climbed the first step, then the next, remembering the thousands of times she'd run through the door, in a hurry to get to the future, to whatever was coming next, to this moment." (Love that - "in a hurray to get to the future")
