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...
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
The Lord of the Rings
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
That was fun, but the only one I knew for sure was the Harry Potter quote lol! :DReplyDelete
Putting quotes from your book on Goodreads is an enterprising idea ... one that I might steal from you!ReplyDelete
Fun but I think I got most of them wrong!ReplyDelete
That was fun! I only voted in LOTR: Sam -- my favorite character. :)ReplyDelete
Thanks for voting, guys! And thanks so much, Annalisa, for hosting me today :-)ReplyDelete
(I'll wait a little longer before I share the answers here!)
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) ;)ReplyDelete
A lot of fun. I think I may have even gotten a couple of them right.ReplyDelete
Dumbledore, James, Daemon, Aragorn, Violet. Thanks Rachel, that was fun:)ReplyDelete
I'm not sure about any of them! Looking forward to the answers. Thanks to everyone who's answered so far :-)ReplyDelete
Crap, I don't think I got any right. Guess I don't pay as much attention as I thought I did.ReplyDelete
Well, of course I got them right! You only had all my fav stories in there.ha FUN.ReplyDelete
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.ReplyDelete
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
Actually, I think I MAY have got the Traitor one right even though I haven't read it yet. Be interested to see... :-)ReplyDelete
That was fun. I got the three that I've read right...yay, me!ReplyDelete
*DON'T READ THIS IF YOU HAVEN'T VOTED YET*ReplyDelete
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 ♥
I'm two for four and I feel pretty good as its been so long since I read Lord of the Rings and I haven't read traitor. But this was fun. Thanks!ReplyDelete
Darn it! I'm not as clever as I thought:) 3 out of 5's not bad, though. Thanks Rachel, that was fun.ReplyDelete
Nope, I didn't get any - not even the Harry Potter one! Back to the books for me :-)ReplyDelete
Thanks for this post Rachel, it's been fun!
that was very fun! i love quotes but can never come up with any on the spot...ReplyDelete
And now I am ashamed of how few of those books I have read!ReplyDelete
I missed all of 'em, but it was fun anyway!ReplyDelete
I didn't get any of them, either. Oh well. Beautiful book covers! I'll have to go check them out. :)ReplyDelete
