The real reason for finally posting the answers is because it's time for another "Guess the Thing" meme! This time, it's Guess the Book!

But before I continue, let me remind you of the rules:

  1. Pick some of your favourite books.
  2. Find a quote from each book.
  3. Post them here for everyone to guess.
  4. Strike it out when someone guesses correctly, and put who guessed.
  5. Wait a few days (preferably not months) before posting the answers to give everyone a chance at guessing.
  6. Those who Google or search their Kindle for the answers will be fed to the Jabberwock.

Commentators, ready your library cards!

  1. But, that armour is just for show...
    You should know by now, Dilaf. Nothing I do is just for show.

  2. I need an election adjusted.
    How adjusted?
    As a cautious estimate? I need it rigged from top to bottom.

  3. What fate? Burn your hearts, what fate?
    To marry the Daughter of the Nine Moons!
    To die and live again, and live once more a part of what was!
    To give up half the light of the world to save the light of the world!

  4. But if I change back, it'll take me at least half the night to make a new Charter-skin. We'll miss dinner - and the midnight rounds.
    Some things are worth missing dinner for.

  5. You were Will's age then, up on your mountain. And you saw me... riding.
    Riding on the wind.

  6. To know what would have happened, child? No. Nobody is ever told that. But anyone can find out what will happen.

  7. Barbecued billygoats!

  8. Now, here, you see, it takes all the running you can do, to keep in the same place. If you want to get somewhere else, you must run at least twice as fast as that!
    Sort-of guessed by ladyofastolat (you did get it right, I just fail at reading LJ comments)
  9. You know, Lieutenant, I've seen the summary of the Board of Inquiry. The final paragraph specifically notes that you are not to be in command of any combat vessel until such time as you have demonstrated competence in relevant training exercises. Yet I find that your citation says you took command of the vessel Antberd's Axe which subsequently engaged enemy vessels in a hostile encounter. Your commander praises your initiative, when I would think he should condemn your blatant disregard of the findings of that Board of Inquiry. Do you have anything to say, Lieutenant?
    Well, sir, my recollection is that the Board said I should not command any R.S.S. combat vessels until further training... it didn't say anything about Bloodhorde ships.
  10. That sentry ship attack a few minutes ago. You were able to tell from that that those were Elomin ships?
    Learn about art, Captain. When you understand a species' art, you understand that species.

Lines are closed and the results are in!

3 is one of the Wheel of Time books by Robert Jordan. Idk which one, even though I'm working through them again currently. I'd guess 3, or 4.
4 is Lireal by Garth Nix, I think
7 - Swallows and Amazons - Arthur Ransome?

I shall be interested to learn where 2 and 8 are from!

1. Elantris, Brandon Sanderson (I was just rereading that last week, or I wouldn't have got this one.)
5. Either The Grey King or Silver on the Tree (Susan Cooper.) I'm tending towards the latter.
8. Alice Through the Looking Glass (Lewis Carroll)

If its not The Horse and His Boy I'm going to guess Prince Caspian. The bit where Lucy goes off and finds Aslan.
