Short quiz on Good Reads

February 27th, 2012

I just discovered a short quiz on Good Reads, created by Callie and based around Museum of Thieves. Have a go at it, and let me know how you do. I got 11 out of 11. 😀 There are no prizes.

    Honestly i got 7 out of 11 but then i memerised the answers and did it on my other computer which got me 11 out of 11.

    🙂

      That’s pretty good, Maeve. The quiz is harder than it looks, because a lot of the answers are so close to each other. I was guessing a lot of the time.

    did i spell memerised right?

    1. Lian says:

      Not quite. Memorised.

    In 2 minutes and 9 seconds I got seven out of eleven. I’m quite chuffed- and apparently I’m especially good at remembering what you have and have not yet learnt. I got them both right. ( :

    I just got 7 out of 11 right. Hard quiz! The wrong answers were so similar to the right answers. I suppose I could have gotten the book off of my husband’s nightstand and looked up the answers, but that wouldn’t have tested my memory.

    I loved both of the books by the way. I read them to see whether or not I’ll recommend them to my kids; I’m happy to report that I will be enthusiastically recommending them. Really looking forward to Path of Beasts being published. How does one get to be a reviewer who gets an early copy of the book??? 😉

      The quiz was harder than it looked, wasn’t it. I agree about the similarity of answers – made it very tricky. I’m glad to hear you loved the books, Ellen. It’s always very pleasing when someone reads them to see if they want their kids to read them, and ends up giving them an enthusiastic recommendation. I think it’s so important that parents know what their kids are reading, and parents are also a really good way of spreading news about a book.

      As for the early copy business, I’m never quite sure how this works. The publishers in the different countries seem to have various lists of reviewers and such like that they send advance copies to. Where are you based?

    I grew up in Southern California, and we now live in Hailey, Idaho – near the Sun Valley ski resort. I have a degree in English Literature and two children ages 6 (David) and 9 (Jessica) – they’ll be 7 and 10 in June and July respectively. I was going to say “in summer” but it will be your winter. My husband and I lived in Tauranga, NZ for three years. Our daughter, Jessica, was born there, so she has dual citizenship. She loves telling people that she was born in July *and* in the winter.

    If there’s any way I could actually get an early copy and write a review, I would *love* that. Here’s a review I wrote on another book based in the Sun Valley area: http://www.amazon.com/review/RW0HSX3LF8SNQ/ref=cm_cr_pr_viewpnt#RW0HSX3LF8SNQ. As you can see, I liked the writing, but the geography was completely messed up. I’m surprised the publisher accepted it as fairly accurate geography is part of this series’ selling point.

    Either way, I certainly look forward to Path of Beasts being released. I’ll need to request City of Lies at my local library, they bought a copy of Museum of Thieves because I requested it, but don’t yet have City of Lies – *tsk*tsk*tsk*

      Hi Ellen, I’ve emailed my US publisher to see if they can help with an early copy. Not sure if it will do any good or not, but we’ll keep our fingers crossed! Thanks for your interest – I really appreciate it.
