Contest! Guessing a Quote for SPELLS and a TOTE

*Contest is closed, check out the winner!

The Reading Teen team have decided to have a little fun today! We will leave five quotes at the end of the post today with NO book title. You get all five book titles of the quotes correct and in order, we will send you a cool book tote, a book from the Second Hand Saturday list and a NEW copy of SPELLS BY APRILYNNE PIKE!  (If you get stuck, look for clues in this week's blog posts and Tweets.) 


Spells (Aprilynne Pike)






NOW HERE'S YOUR CHANCE.....


 Leave a comment giving us the Titles of the quotes in order.  You must be a follower of this blog, for extra credit (+1) give us your favorite quote from your favorite book (seperate comment please).  




1. "I'm just pleasantly surprised", he clarified. " In the last hundred years or so," his voice was teasing, " I never imagined anything like this. I didn't believe I would ever find someone I wanted to be with.... in another way than my brothers and sisters. And then to find, even though it's all new to me, that I'm good at it.... at being with you..."


2.  "The moment you came barreling into my life I was lost.  I'm afraid to tell you what I wish for, for fear you'll...oh, I don't know, throw me into the fire.  Or more likely, refuse me.  Or worst of all, despise me," he said, his voice breaking and his eyes dropping from her face.  "I love you," he said.  "You're more dear to my heart than I ever knew anyone could be."


3. "The force field has us trapped in a circle. A dome, really. I don't know how high it goes. There's the Cornucopia, the sea, and then the jungle all around. Very excact. Very symmectrical. And not very large, " I say.


4.  "He took her hand.  She actually let him.  Play along.  It wasn't just playing, though:  she'd been resisting the need to reach out to him since they first met.  It wasn't logical, but it was definitely there.  At his touch, her Sight sharpened."


5. "You are too generous to trifle with me. If your feelings are still what they were last April, tell me so at once. My affections and wishes are unchanged, but one word from you will silence me on this subject for ever." (Ch. 58)

  12. I have soooo many fav quotes... Hard to pick one.
    Albus Dumbledore's quotes always makes me cry, specially this one:

    "Remember Cedric. Remember, if the time should come when you have to make a choice between what is right and what is easy, remember what happened to a boy who was good, and kind, and brave, because he strayed across the path of Lord Voldemort. Remember Cedric Diggory."

  26. I'm a follower and here's one of my fave Fred & George quotes from the Harry Potter books:

    "Hey, look - Harry's got a Weasley sweater, too!" Fred and George were wearing blue sweaters, one with a large yellow 'F' on it, the other a 'G.'
    "Harry's is better than ours, though," said Fred, holding up Harry's sweater. "She obviously makes more of an effort if you're not family."
    "Why aren't you wearing yours, Ron?" George demanded. "Come on, get it on, they're lovely and warm."
    "I hate maroon," Ron moaned half-heartedly as he pulled it over his head.
    "You haven't got a letter on yours," George observed. "I suppose she thinks you don't forget your name. But we're not stupid - we know we're called Gred and Forge."

    The Fiery Cross by Diana Gabaldon

  38. - "Death's got an Invisibility Cloak?' Harry interrupted again.

    So he can sneak up on people,' said Ron. 'Sometimes he gets bored of running at them, flapping his arms and shrieking..."

  53. (+1) My favorite quote:

    aww this is hard, but I love this one it's a bit long and a HUGE spoiler but it's romantic and funny and entretaining; It's from the book 6 of the mediator series by Meg Cabot:
    ___________________________

    "Jesse, my name is Susannah Simon," I said all in a rush, wanting to get it out before I changed my mind. "I’m what’s called a mediator. I’m from the future. And I’m here to keep you from being murdered tonight."

    Because, in the end, I couldn’t do it.

    I thought I could. I really did think I could sit back and let Jesse be murdered. I mean, if the alternative was never to meet him? Sure, I could do it. No problem.

    But that had been before. Before I’d seen him. Before I’d spoken to him. Before he’d touched me. Before I’d known what he was, what he could have been, if he’d only lived.

    I knew now I could no more stand by and let Jesse be killed than I could have . . . well, shoved my little stepbrother David out in front of a speeding car or fed my mother poison mushroom caps. I couldn’t let Jesse die, even if meant never seeing him again. I loved him too much.

    It was as simple as that.

  58. One of my favourte quotes is from The Spellman Files by iza Lutz:

    Isabel, Age 8
    "Isabel, did you sneak into your brother's room last night and cut his hair?"
    "No," I say.
    Long pause.
    "Are you sure? Maybe you need some time to refresh your memory."
    Albert takes a seat across the table and looks me straight in the eye. I quickly look down but try to mantain my ground.
    "I don't know anything about a haircut," I say.
    Albert places a pair of safety scissors on the table.
    "Do these look familiar?"
    "Those could be anyone's."
    "But we found them in your bedroom."
    "I was framed."
    In fact, I was grounded for a week.
