This is similar to the book cover hunt, but instead of looking for something on the cover, you look for something in the plot of the story. If I said "fire", you would name a book that includes a fire somewhere in the plot of the story. This will be very easy for you if you have a good memory...



Name a book that includes________ in the plot.
1. Fire
2. A male is turned into a vampire
3. A Dragon gives birth to its young
4. Best friends fall in love
5. The main character is betrayed by someone he/she trusts
6. The main character is trying to break a curse
7. The female has more than one love interest
8. Has vampire hunters in it
9. A coven of witches are in it
10. The villain is psychic

message 27: by Cary (new)

Cary (vortigern) | 344 comments Sookie Stackhouse Dead As A Doornail. Her house is set on fire. I am a cheater. I looked this up in the Wikipeda. However there are so many fires in Sookie Stackhouse Stories. LOL! Let me see Bills house catches fire in Dead Until Dark I think. The latest book Dead Reckoning has Merrolottes fire bombed with Sookie inside. I remembered that cause I read it in June. Sookie Stackhouse Fire Starter. ;)


message 28: by Cary (new)

Cary (vortigern) | 344 comments Right on Lisa East of Eden. Steinbeck rocks. I love Canery Row best myself. Fire is the grand finale of The Outsiders by S.E. Hinton. Love that story cause I am from Tulsa, back living in Tulsa, and I am one of the outsiders. Most of the places in that story are the places of my youth.
