Sunday Book Quiz

Happy Sunday. You've probably moved over to the couch with a new book, some tea and cookies. I have to admit I spent the day in my PJs reading Maureen Johnson's THE NAME OF THE STAR (it's really good). To give you a break from reading - I know, who would want that?! -  I've thrown together a small quiz - of course book related - for you guys. 5 different categories, 12 questions. Try to get the right answers and share in the comments. I've linked to the books for those who don't want to wait for the answers. Hope you enjoy it!


Who said it?

“You get confused by crying women, I get confused by walks with princes”  ― p. 145

I've risked my life for you. I've walked half the length of Ravka for you, and I'd do it again and again and again just to be with you, just to starve with you and freeze with you and hear you complain about hard cheese every day. So don't tell me we don't belong together.
p. 298

You look famished. Sit. Eat. And please don't be so rude as to think the food glamoured or enchanted. What kind of host do you think I am?´“  p. 175 

[4]

You're delightfully screwy, and I wouldn't have you any other way. Drink your tea.“  p. 17

  8. I'm pretty sure I've come across most of those quotes before! Mal's one I got straight away, though I can't seem to work out the others. Is number 4 from Lola and the Boy Next Door? Or Anna? One of the two, I think! :)
