Do you have what it takes to write a No. 1 New York Times bestseller? Stephenie Meyer does. Her novel of alien abduction, The Host (Little, Brown, 619 pp. $25.99), shot to the top of the Times after its publication last spring.

Can you guess which of the following lines appear in the novel?

1 “He nuzzled his face against mine until he found my lips, then he kissed me, slow and gentle, the flow of molten rock swelling languidly in the dark at the center of the earth, until my shaking slowed.”

2 “‘Well, for Pete’s sake!’ Jeb exclaimed. ‘Can’t nobody keep a secret around this place for more’n 24 hours? Gol’ durn, this burns me up!’”

3 “ ‘It’s a choice. A voluntary choice.’”

Learn the answers on Monday when a review of The Host appears on this site.
