Guess the book by its first paragraph game (YA)
« on: June 29, 2012, 11:39 AM »
This is a little game I once played on GR and thought of bringing it to PTS so we could play it here as well.

It works like this: someone posts the first paragraph of the story of a book (preface included), and then we have to guess the book (and author) that quote belongs.

After someone guesses right, s/he will post their own challenge, i.e., another first paragraph for the rest of us to guess.

Here a few little rules to keep things neat:

1 – only YA books (it’s a rather vast genre, and it may include “mature YA”, thrillers and such, but no explicit scenes, please)

2 – the quote must be in English

3 – you must only post quotes of real books already published.
That means: no anthologies, no short stories, no special POV’s, no fanfics, and, definitely, no excerpts of books that haven’t been released yet.

4 – if passed one week, no one guessed the book, the quote will be replaced by another paragraph so the game can be continued.


That’s it!
Let's start the fun! :)

Our mother was a witch, too, but she hid it better. I miss her. Not a single day goes by that i don't wish for her guidance. Especially about my sisters.

Do you notice how you only focus on that one star? I think it's because it shines with all its might, even on its last night.

I was standing in the corner. I didn’t want to be there, I hadn’t wanted to be there for a while and I was considering making a move not to be there anymore when he walked in.

I know it's late but I finally remembered the title lol
Knight by Kristen Ashley right?
