Kaje Harper | 11939 comments The first quiz for our Anniversary Bash rewarded those who hang out on the threads being sociable (or those who are good guessers.) Now it's time to give a chance to those who actually read the books.

This quiz tests your knowledge of (or research skills regarding) YA LGBT stories and characters:

Match the Title to the Main Character(s) or the Plot Line

(and no, I'm not giving you links in the questions. You're welcome to check Goodreads listings - that's not cheating if you care to take the time, but I'm not making it that easy.) Feel free to look things up, feel free to just guess.

There are no intentional minor errors – if the only thing wrong with an answer is a typo, go for it. Good luck (and welcome to some good reading.)

The Second Game: www.goodreads.com/quizzes/18003-ya-lg...

Although the quiz will remain up, winners will be chosen at random from the highest scores listed by 10PM Eastern Time on Wed. 13th

Byron (byft) | 1060 comments Hmmm Kaje!!(had to edit the name!) this is a REALLY tough one.. hehehe

I managed to get 14/15 I don't know which one I got wrong but I had to look a couple of answers up, and also went through my copies of most of those books.. and found one missing.. :(

Next one is quotes - we'll see how you do on that ;)

I'll probably do better on that one than I did on this one.
I got 5/15.... only heard of some of the books..

Yeah, I picked my own reading and most of the group BotM and AotM books, so if you were around the group a long time (or read a lot of my favorites) you would have an advantage - or if you decided to go do look-ups.)

Good luck with the next one.


message 14: by Lizzie (new)

Lizzie Hall | 560 comments Well, considering I've never read ANY of the books in the quiz, and gave up even reading the questions by question 5 and just clicking buttons, I guess 10/15 is not so bad.

Wow, good guessing! Maybe knowing too much is a hindrance, eh? Thanks for playing (and I think we need to get you reading more - some really good books in there :)

Wow, go..."


I will when I've got through my whole FOUR books I need to read. Yeah, four, a lot I know, LOL ;) One of them is yours though so :P

I GOT MORE THAN SAMMY. I feel quite proud, hehe.

LOL - I'm glad someone is putting in as much time taking it as I put into writing it :) (Besides I think it doesn't count as swot when there are prizes.)

Go you! (Although I'm going to pretend I didn't hear a 14-year-old plan to read one of mine ;) If you do, I hope you like it, though. Just remember *yea, yeah, you know this* it is explicit.

Myka (MykaRamos) | 83 comments I got only 10 :P Man I should have done better considering I concentrated my YA adult lit class last semester on looking for GLBT friendly books, but there were even books listed I hadn't heard about :P

See, a bonus for doing the quiz. There are some good books out there. Ten isn't bad, if you weren't doing any look-up.

Of course I didn't look. Looking them up is cheating to me.

Well, I specifically said people could if they wanted to - some folks haven't read many of these, so I gave the option (no guilt, just fun.) Not like out prizes are worth big bucks.

I had to do lookups on the Wed one (the group stories) or I'd have been totally out of luck, but I plan to try today's cold and see how I do.

Well done to the winners! :)
