What book is this? Quiz – guessing closed

I started making a great 2nd quiz (for Gage), it got complicated so I’m turning to my prepared rainy day quiz.  Just tell me the titles for 8 points and the authors for 2.  Tell me what they all have in common for an extra 10 🙂

You have until noon Sunday to submit your answers as a comment.  Comment will be hidden until I post the answers.  No Googling! The person with the most points this round will win a B&N gift card (total $ based on # of total participants, so please play) and a randomly selected participant will win a fun prize from me.

Answers to last week’s Clownish Quiz here.  Leaderboard here.

    Yet another great and fun quiz!
    I only know #1 (The Dove Keeper or something like that), #2 (The Newlyweds) and #4 (The Sparrow). Of course the thing they have in common is birds on the cover. 🙂
