The Pre-Game Show

Courtesy of Stephanie (thank you, Stephanie!), we have a Pre-Title Entertainment: a pre-game quiz.

To tide you over for those few hours until Flower Idol comes to its triumphal conclusion (for this book, at least) and the title of Pink VI is publicly announced, we have a smattering of Pink Carnation Trivia. Please feel free to add your own favorite Pink trivia questions in the comments section. The first person to guess all five correctly wins a signed bookplate and a $10 Starbucks card.

— What is the statue that Miles throws stones at when he is angry? (Black Tulip)

— What was stored in the stone tower on Colin’s land? (Night Jasmine)

— What is the name Miss Gwen uses when traveling to Ireland? (Emerald Ring)

— What does Vaughn promise to show Henrietta at his masque? (Black Tulip)

— What was the funniest cause that St. George’s sister supported? (Crimson Rose)

  10. Stephanie Stoddard on May 5, 2009 at 12:44 am

    Lauren i have also come to the conclusion you need a forum so we can do quizzes and discuss our thoughts on the books. the news feed can be hard to find things more than a few weeks old. So it would be fun to have a place were we can talk about the books and have discussions.. talk about book 6 and all that fun stuff 🙂

  11. AngelB on May 5, 2009 at 12:48 am

    The northwest takes over (I’m in Idaho) and for whatever reason, I’m playing on the computer instead of getting my house fixing done. 🙂

  18. AngelB on May 5, 2009 at 1:28 am

    BTW – I think we’ve hi-jacked this thread. Before we go to bed, we should leave more questions for the early rising east coasters. 🙂
