The Good, the Bad and the Are-You-Kidding-Me? Book Cover Quiz + Giveaway

Filed in Book Covers , featured , Giveaways , The Geeky Lover , The HEA Lover Posted on August 6, 2012 @ 11:00 am 45 comments

This week we planned something totally new. *drumroll* We prepared a quiz for you. We want to know how much we taught you about covers. *wink* Below you can see 20 little squares with a little snippet of a book cover. We want you to tell us which book it is and who wrote it. You can fill in your answer as you go and enter you name and email addy at the end and there will be prizes for trying to play the game.

We were a bit scared that we made it too hard so we added a little hint for each cove to “help” you along. We swear we weren’t drunk. We’re just nerds.

There will be 2 winners:

One winner of a book (10$ top) from Book Depository chosen at random between all the entries with at least 5 correct answers.

One winner of 20 US$ shopping spree on Book Depository for the one with the most correct answers (random if more than one got it right)

Open to all.

Giveaway ends on Sunday August 19th and we will announcs the winners in the next edition of The Good, the Bad and the Are-You-Kidding-Me?

    Fun 🙂 Even if I did not manage all

    • pattepoilue August 7, 2012 at 2:30 am

      You were very close to having them all though! *g*

  • draconismoi August 6, 2012 at 11:47 am

    Too many sex generic sex books! There needs to be more generic UF or SF! I can guess those covers with snippets and tiny hints

    • pattepoilue August 7, 2012 at 2:30 am

      Bwahhahaah your answers made me laugh SO hard! lol

      • Draconismoi August 7, 2012 at 11:56 am

        Yeah, I figured if I can’t guess correctly, I should be wrong in a witty way. But I knew one of them for sure! Maybe 2 others. If I missed the other two, it was due to exceedingly similar covers.

    • Susi August 10, 2012 at 12:22 am

      OMG your answers made me giggle. LOL Bwahahhahahah

  • Ren August 6, 2012 at 2:04 pm

    Manage to answer them all :D.Is that mean I’m a cover… nerd?

    • pattepoilue August 7, 2012 at 2:31 am

      Teeehee or that you’re a fervent visitor of this feature. *g*

  • Sheree August 6, 2012 at 8:55 pm

    I only recognized 7! 🙁

    Now if all of them were of Paul Marron, I’d get them all right. 😉

    • Sheree August 7, 2012 at 2:18 am

      Okay, while looking up #7, I think I answered all of them. Shocking.

    • pattepoilue August 7, 2012 at 2:32 am

      Wouldn’t want it to be too easy for you LOL You can spot a Paul Marron cover at a kilometer! lol

      • Ren August 8, 2012 at 12:11 pm

        Don’t do it! Sheree will absolutely be the winner 😛

      • Sheree August 8, 2012 at 7:55 pm

        You did include the obligatory Paul Marron cover as well as a Jed Hill and two Thierry Pepins. Thank you!

        • Ren August 8, 2012 at 10:25 pm

          Oh, but I think Thiery Pepins cover is just one :O. Don’t recognize the other.

          • Sheree August 10, 2012 at 5:29 pm

            No, there are two covers with Thierry Pepin on them. 😉

  • pattepoilue August 7, 2012 at 2:34 am

    FYI when I was prepping the squares I sent them to Susi and she had to guess which book it was for each. Let me say at least 3 she didn’t know!! lol

    • Susi August 10, 2012 at 12:24 am

      Hey don’t tell. LOL Evil woman!!!

  • June August 7, 2012 at 4:48 am

    I could not figure out like 4 of them and just gave up, lol. I think it could be cause it is WAY past bed time.

    • pattepoilue August 11, 2012 at 2:35 am

      We’ll give the answers in the next post. And don’t worry you’re probably at least entered for the ‘5 good answers and more’ giveaway.

      • DANIELA August 11, 2012 at 4:25 pm

        hehe I’d like to win the giveaway, but right now I just want to know the answer to the one I just couldn’t guess.

  • SharonS August 7, 2012 at 6:05 am

    AAAAAHHHHHH! I just need one more…

    • pattepoilue August 11, 2012 at 2:36 am

      I’m curious at which one is posing problems

  • Na S. August 7, 2012 at 10:33 pm

    After opening my eyes, squinting them, and just in general stretching them to find all these covers, I have much more appreciation for the details that go into these cover arts! Some of them definitely made me take a second look and go on to read the blurb.

    • pattepoilue August 11, 2012 at 2:28 am

      I realized I wasn’t looking at the details either because I would never have found #18 for example if I wasn’t the one making the game LOL

  • sienny August 8, 2012 at 10:36 am

    i’m useless.. i only recognized them, but have no idea which book 🙁

    • pattepoilue August 11, 2012 at 2:33 am

      You should check out the previous The Good the Bad and the Are-You-Kidding-Me posts. You should find many there 😉

  • Jen B. August 8, 2012 at 10:05 pm

    Holy Cow! There are three that I just can’t figure out. Although, I know that I have seen one of them FOR SURE! One of them I just have no idea at all (which is surprising because I love covers). That was fun!

    • pattepoilue August 11, 2012 at 2:32 am

      *g* We tried choosing well known upcoming books or books we discussed in previous cover posts. It is annoying to KNOW that you’ve seen one but can’t remember which

  • DANIELA August 8, 2012 at 11:18 pm

    I just couldn’t figure out one of them… I was so close… This was so entertaining. Thanks!!!!!

    • pattepoilue August 11, 2012 at 2:26 am

      The funny thing is that It’s not always the same one that is problematic for everyone.
      Depending on how many entries we have, maybe we will be able to tell each of you how many good answers you had.

      • DANIELA August 11, 2012 at 4:19 pm

        if possible, I’d very much like that… because I think that I got a lot of them ok, but I might be wrong 😛

  • Amanda August 9, 2012 at 6:47 am

    I shan’t enter (as that would be slightly suspicious, i suppose) but i think i got three 😀

    could only give you the names of two authors though

    • pattepoilue August 11, 2012 at 2:24 am

      Amanda you can enter the Quizz for fun! We’ll tell you how many good answers you got *g*

  • Diah Didi August 12, 2012 at 8:00 pm

    This is totally coooool… I’m having so much fun! Of course if having teary-eyes because going through almost every pages looking for any clues for hours (and days) can be counted as fun. 😀 But really, I had a really great time. Thank you very much.

    • pattepoilue August 14, 2012 at 4:03 am

      *g* YAY this is making me so happy that you find it entertaining =) Good luck then! Only a week let before the results and answers are revealed

  • ladymilano August 14, 2012 at 3:48 am

    Great idea! 😀 Wish to see more of this kind of quiz! 😉

    • pattepoilue August 14, 2012 at 4:04 am

      Thank you *g* It’s really making my day to know this was fun for you too! I was scared everyone would think it dumb. Since it’s been very well received we might do it again in a few months =)

  • Jane August 14, 2012 at 5:26 am

    This was hard, but fun.

  • Izz August 14, 2012 at 11:53 am

    wheww.. I have been searching all over the place to find those covers.
    thanks for this fun game 😀

    • pattepoilue August 15, 2012 at 1:49 pm

      Glad you enjoyed *g* Don’t forget to check for the results on Monday

  • aurian August 15, 2012 at 12:19 pm

    I only found 17 🙁 I was hoping to know them all. Recognized a lot of them, but finding the correct title and author took more time then I thought.

    • pattepoilue August 15, 2012 at 1:49 pm

      17 is not bad at all! We’ll be giving all the answers on the Monday post =)

  • Chelsea B. August 15, 2012 at 10:36 pm

    WOW! That was really, really hard. Dude. Seriously. I can’t even… My brain is like dead. For reals.

  • Laurie August 17, 2012 at 4:47 pm

    Some were easy but some were so hard! Brain fried, but it was fun!
