    I knew no more than about half these titles before this quiz but got 100% thanks to what some might call a lack of imagination in the authors' chosen titles.
  2. Famous Books: Before & After

    Agree with the archived comment, that giving the author's name just turns this into 'Who wrote ...?' Either leave out the author, or make a quiz where there are two answers for each author, where book B was written between A and C, and book D was written between C and E - not identifying what the full order is in the clues, so you could mis-guess B for D and vice versa.

    Your Record Album quiz in the same format is BRILLIANT. And this one would be, too, if you didn't give us the authors' names. The fun of it is IDing the author from two books, then finding the third. By giving us the name, we don't have to pay any attention to the book title at all. PLEASE RETHINK THIS! :) (And while you're at it, do more like this, and like the albums one.)

    I do have to wonder why Gene Wilder is used as the image when the quiz uses the book/Johnny Depp film version of Veruca's fate. I do still love it, though.

    @geronimostilton- Actually, Berry IS in the quiz. He's a bonus answer that triggers the B section. He's not listed among the displayed B answers because he only appears in the Tales of Beedle the Bard and not in the seven canon books. @mathknapp- Kettleburn is the Care of Magical Creatures professor before Hagrid. He retires, according to Dumbledore, "in order to enjoy more time with his remaining limbs."
