No Googling or looking at other commenter answers.  Yes, we’re going by the honor system 🙂  Play every week or just one time, you are always welcome 🙂  It only takes once to be eligible for a prize. 

Here’s the deal- Tell me what each of the five books have in COMMON.  Let me give you so vague hints. 2 have to do with locations, 2 with movies, 2 with the covers, 2 with main characters, 1 with the authors, and 1 is a surprise 🙂  An example of past common threads-authors born in Ohio, magical realism and Edgar Award winners.

    I know this isn’t responding to the quiz. But Beach Music is one of my favorite books. It’s the only book I’ve ever read in which I felt personal loss when a central character died.

    5. has autistic character
    6. set in San Francisco
    7. published after authors died?? I know the authors are all dead. LOL
    8. butterfly on the cover

    This definitely made me think. Good job, Stacy!!!

    Oh, this is tough. Are all the books in group 1 set in Kansas? Group 3 all have apples on the cover. Group 5 features characters with a spectrum disorder. All the authors in group 7 are deceased. Group 8 features butterflies on their covers. I think all of groups 9 and 10 have been made into movies but I don’t know what ties them together.

    First I’d like to say that I saw Sarah Plain and Tall and read Sarah Palin. Not fair to the book, btw, which I loved! :–)

    And now on to the contest. The Capote group is definitely Kansas. (And thanks for reminding me of the book that gives me THE MOST NIGHTMARES OF ANY BOOK EVER, LOL) Definitely the Marcelo group is about kids on the autism/asperger’s spectrum. The High Fidelity group must be books that became movies.

    1. Are set in Kansas (I think)
    2. second books in a series
    3. All have apples on covers
    7. Authors are all deceased
    8. All have butterflies on covers

    That’s all she wrote for me. 😉
