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.
I’ve still never read a Conroy novel. Is this one your favorite?
1. Set in Kansas?
2. 2nd book in trilogy
3. apples on the cover
4. character named Jack??? only thing I can come up with and very unsure about it
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
9. made into movies starring John Cusack
10. made into movies and cover shows movie scene
This definitely made me think. Good job, Stacy!!!
90 points Kay!!! Very impressive 🙂
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.
1. Setting in Prairie States Kansas/Missouri
2. Books are the second in a series
3. Apples on Covers
4. Characters named Jack
5. Characters on autism spectrum
6. Set in San Francisco
7. All authors have died
8. Butterflies on Covers
9. Books made into movies starring John Cusack
10, Movies directed by Nora Ephron
95 points! Very impressive, as always 🙂
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.
I wouldn’t ever put a Sarah Palin book on here, even in jest. Same goes for the guy she endorsed 🙂 25 points!
Congrats to Kathy BermudaOnion! I was only going to ask: have you read The Fiction Class?
Not yet 🙂
This is hard!
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
9. All had a character portrayed by John Cusack in the films
That’s all she wrote for me. 😉
They are challenging for me to make too 🙂 55 points!
