  1. Ooooh, The Devil in the White City is excellent! Bone-chilling, but totally enthralling. I started reading it on a Greyhound trip in the middle of the night and couldn't stop reading, despite the fact that it scared the pants off me!! Great list!

    1. I keep hearing that its really good; I'm determined I'm going to read it this year.

  2. The Snow Child is so lovely and magical! I hope you enjoy it. And I really liked Parasite too -- creepy and terrific! Really great list -- have a great winter of reading!
