Congratulations! Ladies, I will be emailing you shortly. You have 72hours to answer or we’ll have to draw a new winner.

Thank you to everyone who participated in the Quiz! It was awesome seeing all the entries (we never thought we’d get so many). We got a lot of ‘All good answers’  entries. And even more with only 1 cover missing.  Some of you were also very inventive in their answers LMAO (Yes Cass I’m talking about you *wink*)

The covers which were often missing were #9 #10 and #18 (in that order). I admit Outpost wasn’t easy.  And just to annoy Susi I’ll tell you which one she didn’t find *g*, #18 Steel’s Edge!  Muahahah

This was fun! I think we’ll try to test your Cover Trivia again in the future =)

Did you find it hard? Easy?

Do you have suggestions as to how we could make it better next time? 

Oh and were our Hints even remotely useful? Honestly we geeked out a bit on the hints. LOL Had a lot of fun finding them

    10 and 12 were hard for me, oh and that Hearne one. I did guess it might be Maya Banks on one but I did not find the right one, tricky.

    • Susi August 21, 2012 at 12:32 am

      Same here hon. These we use the same word in each title series can be a brain buster.

  • pattepoilue August 20, 2012 at 3:03 pm

    I had all the right answers bwahahahah *g*

  • Sheree August 20, 2012 at 4:25 pm

    Well, hey! I got them all right! Well, maybe except the part where I misspelled “addiction”…

    I was looking for #7 which I knew was the new Maya Banks with Thierry Pepin when I took a closer look at STEEL’S EDGE, also with Thierry Pepin, and realized it was #18. And of course, I knew #8 (Paul Marron), #13 (Jed Hill), and #12 (although I didn’t know the name of the model, I did know it was a Lorelei James cover).

    It’s interesting that even the small bits of covers can indicate the genre and, in some instances, the author.

    • Susi August 21, 2012 at 12:28 am

      Indeed. It’s also interesting that some covers told us it’s a Maya Banks and it is awfully hard to guess the right title. I came up with Highlander something. LOL

  • draconismoi August 20, 2012 at 6:43 pm

    I got….1 exactly right. And 1 author/series right. I also maintain that Scottish Porn by Duncan MacCloud” TOTALLY COUNTS. Just on principle.

    Spending so much time on this blog is giving me a dirty mind. I assumed non-sex books were, in fact, sex books.

    I can’t offer an opinion about your hints because I totally didn’t read them. That’ll teach me to tackle this kind of project at work. Next time….next time I’ll get my numbers up. Just you wait.

    • Sheree August 20, 2012 at 7:04 pm

      Oh yeah, I didn’t really follow the hints either. Some were more head-scratchers than help.

      • Susi August 21, 2012 at 12:30 am

        We really tried to keep the hints cryptic. *g*

    • Susi August 21, 2012 at 12:28 am

      I giigled so much over your answers. Bwahhahah

  • Diah Didi August 20, 2012 at 7:13 pm

    Congratulations for the winners! I had so much fun. Especially for number 5, I’ve been through most pages just to realized then that the clue was exactly on the right column. :))

    • Susi August 21, 2012 at 12:29 am

      Aren’t we sneaky. LOL

  • eli yanti August 20, 2012 at 10:08 pm

    i only got 3 answers : number 5,8 and 13 🙁

  • DANIELA August 21, 2012 at 12:36 am

    I got 19, could’t guess Outpost. This was so much fun. Thanks!!!

  • ladymilano August 21, 2012 at 12:33 pm

    Congrats for the winners!
    The hardest for me is no. 9! 😀
    But it’s really fun! Please do some more *begging
    Maybe next time you could me it easier by capture the ‘core’ of the cover, just like pics no.12 or 13. *wink
    So far it’s really challenging 😉

  • aurian August 21, 2012 at 12:53 pm

    Lol those where the three I missed. And I would definately participate again, it is fun. The hints were no help at all.

  • Diane August 21, 2012 at 7:07 pm

    Congratulations!

  • Izz August 21, 2012 at 9:13 pm

    congratulations to all the winners! some are easy some are hard to find those covers, but the easiest part is Larissa Ione’s book Lethal Rider, oh yeah I can spot Thanatos even from one tiny part of him *ahem, kidding*. the scorpion is a dead giveaway.. LOL 😀

  • Aline August 21, 2012 at 10:41 pm

    What! I won??
    YAY! Thanks, Caroline. I’m so excited!
    And congrats to you too Sheree 🙂

    • Sheree August 21, 2012 at 11:42 pm

      Thanks! And congrats! I’m trying to decide on a book…

      • Aline August 22, 2012 at 11:53 pm

        LOL! That could be frustrating, Sheree..
        Been that 😀

  • Jen B. August 22, 2012 at 9:45 am

    I just couldn’t get 9 or 18. And I searched and searched because I KNEW I had seen them before. Ugh! Oh well, it was lots of fun and I would do it again. I only found a couple of the hints helpful. Looking forward to next time.
