Tuesdays are great, right? Not only is Monday over (finally!), but it also means that it’s trivia time!

In this entry, I’ve picked out some of my favorite quotes from some classic (or sure-to-become-classic) YA books. I had a tough time choosing which quotes to use, because there are just so many outstanding lines, but I managed to narrow it down — and if you pay really close attention, you’ll see some of them even have hints about which book they belong to.

Happy guessing! (No Googling!)

Quote #1: Growing up spoiled a lot of things.
a.    Ramona Quimby, Age 8
b.    Life As We Knew It
c.    A Tree Grows in Brooklyn

Quote #2: There are many universes and many Earths parallel to each other. Worlds like yours, where people’s souls live inside their bodies, and worlds like mine, where they walk beside us, as animal spirits we call daemons.
a.    The Golden Compass
b.    The Secret Garden
c.    The Wind in the Willows

Quote #3: If you enjoy books with happy endings than you are better off reading some other book.
a.    Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire
b.    A Series of Unfortunate Events #1: The Bad Beginning
c.    The Westing Game

Quote #4: All morons hate it when you call them a moron.
a.    The Catcher in the Rye
b.    The Little Prince
c.    Are You There, God? It’s Me, Margaret

Quote #5: It’s lovely to live on a raft. We had the sky up there, all speckled with stars, and we used to lay on our backs and look up at them, and discuss about whether they was made or only just happened.
a.    The Adventures of Tom Sawyer
b.    A Tale of Two Cities
c.    The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn
