Top Ten Tuesday Teasers! Answers!

Tomorrow! Ha!

Seriously folks, I didn't realize the Top Ten would be so difficult. I kinda thought I'd get flooded with comments about knowing one or another or all of them and the Top Ten Challenge would be over. Nope. Instead I got a few emails about how difficult it was and how I should have watered it down.

Maybe I just scared you all off with my No Cheating buzz.

Either way, I'll give you another day just in case. Here's the ones correctly answered with their amazon links in case you wanted to read the complete blurb or buy the book for yourself--these really are great (I wouldn't know about #4 yet because I haven't read it, but it comes highly recommended from a great friend)...

10-Twilight: Eclipse by Stephenie Meyer

9-Magic in the Wind by Christine Feehan

8-Northern Lights by Nora Roberts

5-Morrigan's Cross by Nora Roberts

4- Wizard's First Rule by Terry Goodkind

3-Dark Lover by J.R. Ward

1-A Knight in Shining Armor by Jude Devereaux



The ones left to answer with a hint:

7-"In their youth Florentino Ariza and Fermina Daza fell passionately in love. When Fermina chooses to marry a wealthy, well-born doctor Florentino is devastated, but he is a romantic." --HINT: This is a classic that was made into a 2000-something movie. The book also made an appearance in the movie "Serendipity" as the book Sarah wrote her name and number in then sold to a local bookstore for him to find.

6-"Scouring the darkest corners of the Highlands and Western Isles, Robert the Bruce handpicks ten warriors to help him in his quest to free Scotland from English rule. They are the best of the best, chosen for their superior skills in each discipline warfare--to lead his secret Highland Guard, Bruce chooses the greatest warrior of all." --HINT: This is the book I started Saturday and finished yesterday. Yes, it's that good. I'm sure if you're really clever you could find me mention it in a previous post.

2-"In the California coastal town of Angel's Bay, an old legend says that sometimes, when they're needed, angels from an old shipwreck appear and good triumphs over evil." --HINT: The book was released in June of 2009. However, when you put the title into Amazon's search bar, two big hits pop up. One for this book by an author with the initials B.F. and the second for a psychedelic record that shares the same name. The record was released in 1968 by J.K. & Co.

Happy Guessing and hope you're having a great Wednesday!

Well...you told us not to google the quotes. That means if I read it then I know it. Otherwise, there are millions of books out there. How am I supposed to guess?

Because you're smart! And savvy! And you know it all! Wait...don't you??? :)

Okay, I was somewhat certain about #7 and when you hinted with Serendipity I knew for sure! Love In The Time Of Cholera. Right?
#6 must be The Chief since that's the one you mentioned crawling into bed with after your horrifying daughter-sans-seat belt experience.

This was fun. I failed dismally with a lot of these, but on a bright note, I now have new books on my to-be-read list! :)
