Utah Books Quote Quiz WINNERS and ANSWERS

A few weeks ago at the beginning of Utah Book Month, I posted a challenge... a quote quiz asking people to guess which Utah book the quote was from. Turned out, it was sort of hard. So I had to modify the quiz a bit and give some hints.


Anyway, this has made for a challenge for me in picking the winners. Thus, I have decided to have THREE winners! Yes, that's right... THREE. 

First of all, before I gave out the hints, one person got three answers right. I felt it wasn't fair to her that she tried the challenge BEFORE the hints were given, and since she still got some right, I choose her as my first winner.

WINNER NUMBER ONE: Kathy from Read This Instead!

Then after I gave the hints, I had two people who get EVERY SINGLE one right! So instead of putting them in the pot and picking which one would win, I've decided they BOTH win!!

WINNER NUMBER TWO: Gayle! (who doesn't have a book blog for me to link to, but who is one of my most loyal readers and commenters! Obviously, she seriously needs to start blogging about books!) 

All the winners get to choose a book from the list of books featured in the quiz, and I will mail them that book (direct from Amazon.)

You should be hearing from me by email soon, so I can get your mailing address and get those on the way!

Thanks for playing everyone!


And now, here are the answers to the quiz, just so you know:

1. She gritted her teeth as the time passed. How long had she been kneeling? An hour, maybe longer.

Warbreaker by Brandon Sanderson

2. I trip on a rock, dodge a bush too late. It sinks its teeth, its prickly seeds into my clothes and my leg. Our feet crunch frost.

Crossed by Ally Condie

3. "You are without a doubt the weirdest guy I have ever met."

I Don't Want to Kill You by Dan Wells

4. It's Friday night at Ballad of the Sad Cafe and the air smells like melodrama and espresso.

Back When You Were Easier to Love by Emily Wing Smith

5. He wanted to prolong the evening. He wanted to keep chatting... or something.

The Actor and the Housewife by Shannon Hale

6. I looked at the charcoal drawing he left behind. The black lines laced together into the silhouette of a lone, familiar tree.

The Dark Divine by Bree Despain

7. Everything about this school was wrong.

Variant by Robison Wells

8. The lass hesitated, but only for a moment. There was a singing in her blood and her heart pounded as though it would leap out of her chest.

Sun and Moon, Ice and Snow by Jessica Day George

9. "My preserve is a secret. I have all the necessary licenses, but if my neighbors complained, those could be revoked. You must not tell a soul, not even your parents."

Fablehaven by Brandon Mull

10. The enormous stone wall to the right of them seemed to defy every known law of physics as it slid along the ground, throwing sparks and dust as it moved, rock against rock. The crunching sound rattled his bones.

The Maze Runner by James Dashner


  1. Oh, yeah! I know I guessed on at least 4 of them, so go figure. I'm so excited!

  2. Yay! That was a very fun challenge, but I couldn't have done it without the hints. :) (And I think your blog can count for me too, since we read so many of the same books, don't you think?)

  3. I'm so impressed with Gayle! She needs to start a book blog already! I'm not surprised Melissa got them either.
