Name Game Quiz

As I looked through my tbr shelves to try to find some titles to help me finish challenges I realized that I have a lot of titles with proper names.  So, here’s the challenge and it’s a little different this time around, I want you to list up to 20 titles (you can list only 1 if you want) with proper names, first or last, in the title.  You will get points if other participants also list the same title, so choose popular ones.  If two people guess the same title it’s 2 points for both them.  If three people then it’s 3 points for the trio and so on.   

An example- Tex by SE Hinton.  If four people had entered it those four people would have gotten 4 points.  It’s not complicated, just have to guess what other people will list.  I don’t need the author and you can’t choose Tex!

Feel free to leave a few now and come back to leave more later.  You have until Saturday since I am getting this up late.  The points this week are unlimited!

Here are the rules… 1. Open to everyone.  Play once or every week, that’s okay.  I’m happy to have you here today.

2. No cheating.  No googling, other internet searches or looking at other commenter answers.  Yes, we’re going by the honor system

3. Your first answers will be the only ones accepted.

Last week’s quiz here.  Current Leaderboard here.

Results are in!  Since I wanted you to get a few more points I’m giving an extra 5 points for titles that I have on my own shelves.
