"Who Said This? Guess The Character!"

Technically - and actually - it's Wednesday, and according to my schedule I get to talk about me today. However, as I'm still plodding along and not writing very much at all, I'm handing over to Rachel Morgan of Rachel Morgan Writes who has just released her third book in the Creepy Hollow series, Traitor. Over to you, Rachel...



For anyone who's hung around my blog for long enough, it's no secret that I like playing around with little voting widgets. I've asked people to vote for or against prologues, for an awesome book cover or a cool, catchy title, and I even managed to incorporate poll widgets into one of my entries for the Writers' Platform-Building Campaign!

Another thing I love is book quotes. When I'm reading, if I come across a line I love, I type it into a memo on my cell phone. Then later I go find the quotes on Goodreads and add them to my favorite quotes! So when I published my own books, it was a great source of amusement to me to add my own quotes to Goodreads (yeah, okay, you can make fun of me if you want!).

So today I'm putting together my love of polls and my love of quotes. Below are some quotes I've taken from well-known novels. Hopefully you've read some (or all) of these books. If not ... well, just take a wild guess as to who you think said each line!

The last quote is from TRAITOR, my newly released novelette in the Creepy Hollow series. Violet is the main character, Nate is her boyfriend, Ryn is the guy who pisses her off whenever he can, and Aria is the classic 'mean girl'.

Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince


Twilight


Obsidian


The Lord of the Rings


Traitor


That was fun, right? Right? (Please say yes!) I'll leave the answers in the comments after you've had a go at guessing the correct names :-)

Kick-butt faerie girl + cute human boy who shouldn't be able to see her 
= trouble for both of them!

  2. Putting quotes from your book on Goodreads is an enterprising idea ... one that I might steal from you!

  6. Well that was fun! I know I got at least HP and LOTR right, which are the important ones anyway! (Besides Traitor, which I can't be blamed for not knowing as I haven't read it yet) ;)

  7. A lot of fun. I think I may have even gotten a couple of them right.

  10. Crap, I don't think I got any right. Guess I don't pay as much attention as I thought I did.

  11. Well, of course I got them right! You only had all my fav stories in there.ha FUN.

  12. That was fun! I wasn't sure about the last three, though--no excuses with LOTR, darn it--so I'm interested in seeing the answers to those.

  13. I've read all of these books except Obsidian and Traitor (which obviously I intend to), but I'm pretty sure I got them all wrong!

    ReplyDelete
  14. Actually, I think I MAY have got the Traitor one right even though I haven't read it yet. Be interested to see... :-)

    ReplyDelete
  15. That was fun. I got the three that I've read right...yay, me!

  16. *DON'T READ THIS IF YOU HAVEN'T VOTED YET*

    Very interesting to see the results! Harry Potter and The Lord of the Rings seem to be the easiest to get right, as I suspected. I just realized why people are guessing the wrong Twilight name - that line was said by a different character in the movie as opposed to the book!

    Harry Potter - Dumbledore
    Twilight - Laurent (in the movie it was James)
    Obsidian - Ash
    The Lord of the Rings - Aragorn
    Traitor - Ryn

    Thanks for playing ♥

  18. Darn it! I'm not as clever as I thought:) 3 out of 5's not bad, though. Thanks Rachel, that was fun.

    ReplyDelete
  19. Nope, I didn't get any - not even the Harry Potter one! Back to the books for me :-)

    Thanks for this post Rachel, it's been fun!
