Haunted Week 2012: Written in the Tombstone

Cheyenne of This Girl Reads has chosen this topic for today for Haunted Week:

The epitaph is the inscription on a tombstone—you could say it’s a person’s last words. Today, quote the last line of five books. (No spoilers, please!)

Let’s see if you can guess which books these quotes come from. Answers will be at the bottom, but you shouldn’t need them.

  • “Lastly, she pictured to herself how this same little sister of hers would, in the after-time, be herself a grown woman; and how she would keep, through all her riper years, the simple and loving heart of her childhood; and how she would gather about her other little children, and make their eyes bright and eager with many a strange tale, perhaps even with the dream of Wonderland of long ago; and how she would feel with all their simple sorrows, and find a pleasure in all their simple joys, remembering her own child-life, and the happy summer days.”
  • “All was well.”
  • “And he leaned down to press his cold lips once more to my throat.”
  • “But there are much worse games to play.”
  • “And that was how she would remember them for the longest time thereafter, even in the bleakest of moments: her two loving parents, clinging to each other in the dark, crying long into the night.”

Tomorrow’s post is the final one (sad face) and is called Beware of Book Review.

  1. Ooh, I love how you had it kind of like a game—that’s great! I got them all except for Croak, which I haven’t read. (Technically, I haven’t read the last Harry Potter either, but I have enough Harry Potter fans for friends that I know what the last line is!)

    Great post! (:
