Guess the Books! Trivia Quiz

Posted by at 7:23 am in Trivia | Permalink

Questionmark_130 Do you need a hint? Do you? Come on, do you?

Well tough! You're not getting one.

For today's Tuesday Trivia, I want to see how many of you can figure out the book titles from just an itty-bitty piece of their covers.

The books all have something in common. But if I told you, that would be a hint. And you're not getting one.  : P

Music_triviaWow! Time flies when you're having fun (on THE STACKS, duh). I just took a look back at Ink Splot 26 and discovered it's been over EIGHT MONTHS since the last song lyric trivia! Which means there's a new crop of songs that I just can't stop listening to, and plenty of new songs for you to guess, based only on their opening lyrics:

1. She's got both hands in her pockets.

And she won't look at you

2. She's indecisive

She can't decide

3. I'm more than just an option

Refuse to be forgotten

4. Now listen to me baby

Before I love you and leave you

They call me a heart breaker

5. How you choose to express yourself

It's all your own and I can tell

6. I should have known by the way you passed me by

There was something in your eyes and it wasn't right

7. Beautiful girls all over the world

I could be chasing but my time would be wasted

8. Take me, take me out of here

it makes me feel so, feel so

9. For those who don't know me, I can get a bit crazy

Have to get my way, 24 hours a day

10. Walk in the room I'm a man on a mission

You're standing there and I feel that connection

Leave the title and artist to the songs in the Comments. I'll be back next week to congratulate the winner and give you the answers.
