Common Denominator Quiz guessing closed

I’ve done these before and I know they can be hard.  Here’s a link to the first one I did to give you an idea of what it’s all about.  Tell me what the five books have in common-it can be anything-awards, title, main character, setting, etc.  Each one is worth 10 points.  If you come up with something more specific than I did I’ll add 5 points, if it’s less specific I’ll give you 5 points.  Feel free to come back and add answers in later comments, but I’m only accepting the first answer for each number.  You have until Friday at noon to submit your answers.  Same prize as last time.

This week  you are allowed to look at book info for answers. No looking at other commenter answers.  Yes, we’re going by the honor system :)    Your first answers will be the only ones accepted.  Play every week or just one time, you are always welcome   It only takes once to be eligible for a prize.
