Ghostgirl by Tonya Hurley

"Hey, it's your first lunch as a dead girl. My treat!" Pam joked, stopping the paralyzing, obsessive thought cycle spinning through Charlotte's brain as Pam led her to a table in the corner.

inkspell by cornelia funke

even the Adderhead used to invite her to his castle, poorly as he thought of the Motley Folk,for in those days everyone had wanted to hear her sing.

Lord of the Flies by William Golding.

"The hunters were screaming with delight."

Not a very good line. Ah well. Great book, though :D

I'm going to write a few more lines just to get a better idea of it.

"The hunters were screaming with delight. Simon's effort fell about him in ruins; the laughter beat him cruelly and he shrank away defenseless to his seat."

It's actually quite good! I really like it a lot better than I thought I would! :)

Next closest is Harry Potter, of course XD The seventh, Deathly Hallows, by the way. I'll do that one too, now.

"'No, I think you're like James,' said Lupin, 'who would have regarded it as the height of dishonor to mistrust his friends.'"

<3 I love Harry Potter <3

Haunted By Kelley Armstrong

Kristoff slid a hand across my bare thigh. As his fingers crept up to my rear, I leaned back into him, twisted to his ear, and whispered, ''Keep going, and I'll play with your intestines.''

Neverwhere by Neil Gaiman

"'Memories,' she explained. 'They're imprinted in the walls.'"

AMAZING book. I absolutely loved this one.

(PS: Neverwhere was tied closest to me with Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, but I already did that one :D)

I have two books right near me. First one is Les Miserables by Victor Hugo:

"As must be clear from what has been said, the house was so arranged that one could reach the alcove in the oratory only by going through the bishop's bedroom."

Breakfast at Tiffany's by Truman Capote:

"Watime sugar and cream rationing restricted her imagination when it came to sweets- nevertheless, she once managed something called Tobacco Tapioca: best not describe it."

Bluestar's Prophecy by Erin Hunter:

Sorry, but this is not page 81 (it's soooo soon in the book, and there's nothing good there.) Instead, I'm giving a selection from later on. Be aware, it's about cats.

...Pelt bristling, eyes wide, Snowfur streaked after them, over the oily Thunderpath. (road)
Bluefur then froze.
A monster was roaring straight at Snowfur.
Without slowing down, it slammed into her body.
Bluefur heard the dull thump, then the howl of the monster as it thundered away, leaving Snowfur's body lying like a wet leaf at the edge of the Thunderpath.

The monster's roar faded quickly away. Bluefur could see the ShadowClan warriors peering from the trees beyond the Tunderpath, their eyes wide with horror.
"Snowfur?" She bent down and nudged her sister with her paw. The white warriors didn't respond, just lay limply on the stinking grass. "Come on," Bluefur urged. "We have to get back to camp. We've got to report those ShadowClan warriors."
A thin trail of blood rolled from Snowfur's mouth.
"I'll help you," Bluefur offered She grasped her sister's scruff and began to drag her through the forest. "Try your paws," Bluefur begged through her mouthful of fur. "Once you're walking, you'll feel better."
Snowfur's body slid over the leaf-strewn floor.
*Oh, StarClan, why did I tell her about Oakheart? She wouldn't have run off. We'd never have found those ShadowClan warriors.* They'd be home by now, Whitekit bouncing with excitement at seeing his mother back...

Again, I did not want to type page 81. That was 351-352

The Man in the High Castle by Philip K. Dick.

"Grunting sourly, he started towards the bathroom in his underpants and socks, rubbing his chin."

This makes a perfectly written plot seem a bit...dull.

Incarceron by Catherine Fisher
(AMAZING book, by the way. STRONGLY recommended)

"...'Your visions will show us how to Escape.'"

The whole paragraph would be:
"Gildas's gaze followed his. 'You don't. You dream Incarceron's mysteries. Your visions will show us how to Escape.'"

"the captain bowed to each of them"
... That was pretty lame. You need it in context, and 81 is so close to the start of the book.
