Book Quote Trivia Quiz

June 18th, 2017 by

Ahem. Can we all agree that highlighters are super fun and the best stationery thingy? Okay, maybe highlighters are tied with a multiple color click pen. But definitely in the Top 10 on a back-to-school shopping list. Well, one of my favorite things to do when I read is highlighting interesting sentences in a book*. I even do this when I read ebooks on my computer or smartphone!

*Only do this with your own books, obviously. Only monsters highlight library books! Don’t be a monster.

Could you recognize a book by just one, two, or three sentences? Take this quiz and find out!

"In this book, not only is there no happy ending, there is no happy beginning and very few happy things in the middle."

"Monday morning found Tom miserable."

"You can always trust a dog that likes peanut butter."

"I'm twelve years old. Until a few months ago, I was a boarding student at Yancy Academy, a private school for troubled kids in upstate New York. Am I a troubled kid? Yeah. You could say that."

"'Is the spring coming?' he said. 'What is it like?'"

"Some people spend all their time on a vacation taking pictures so that when they get home they can show their friends evidence that they had a good time. They don't pause to let the vacation enter inside of them and take that home."

"People are more than just the way they look."

"When you’ve lived in a cage, you can’t bear not to run, even if what you’re running towards is an illusion."

"Sitting in cold wet britches for an hour was no fun even in a magic kingdom."

"'Words,' he said, 'is oh such a twitch-tickling problem to me all my life.'"

icon_nancyNancy looooooves taking online quizzes — probably because she loves trivia and facts. Fun fact: After Roald Dahl wrote a book using a #2 pencil on yellow legal paper, he never used any other writing materials. That must have been so fun for whoever got to type up those books!
