It’s March and that means one thing…March Madness. Every where you look you see brackets, brackets, brackets. I mean even the POTUS does a bracket. But brackets don’t have to be just for basketball. I know in the YA world there are a lot of boyfriend brackets, book genre brackets, couple brackets, and more. You can probably find a bracket out there for just about anything. So why not join in on the fun.
When I was trying to come up with something fun to do it came to me, a bracket for my Best of the Best. I took 32 of my favorite 5 star reads and had them compete against each other all the way to the end where I had one book. It was hard guys. Reall hard. But I did it. And I’m sure the final book will come as no surprise to any one but it was still fun to do.
So tell me, what would your middle book be based on my bracket?
It came down to ACOTAR and Things We Know By Heart for me, and I had to flip a coin because I could not choose between these two. Things We Know By Heart won the coin toss. I couldn’t go wrong with EITHER choice though.
Mine would be A Court of Thorns and Roses. I’m so in love with the book and I can’t wait to get my hands on a finished copy <3
I was considering going with I’ll Meet You There because <3 BUT! I think I have to go with Anna!!
I am so totally shocked at what won your bracket! *winks* No, but seriously, this is such a fun idea. I loved seeing what books were a part of your bracket, and I liked seeing what made it all the way to the top two!
Color me shocked by your choice!
Finalists for me (today anyway) would be Love and Other Perishable Items, Saving Francesca, And We Stay, A Room with a View.
Uhhhhh why do you make these choices so difficult?? I guess in the end it would come down to what mood I’m in at that time – contemporary or fantasy. But definitely it could be Things We Know by Heart, Open Road Summer, My Life Next Door, or Crown of Midnight. And of course, I’m so surprised by your final choice 😉
I like this a lot, Andi! Fun idea!
I’m down to Anna vs. Open Road Summer. I think I’d probably go with Anna, but ORS is VERY VERY close. =P
Mine would have been The Last Time We Say Goodbye! I LOVED that book!
Ahhh! I love this idea!!! This should be a thing!
I haven’t read all of the books in your brackets, so if I haven’t read it I had to go with the ones I have read. Based on that I ended up with I’ll Meet You There and Crown of Midnight… Crown of Midnight would tip the scale and win it. R x
Not gonna lie, I literally lol’ed when I first saw your bracket. The only thing that stood out to me was ALL TEH ANNA and I was like ahahah oh Andi. This is so fun, though! I honestly have no clue what would be my winner. I think there’d have to be a mega tie, because I hate coming up with favorites!
Oh my goodness this is so much fun! I love it. 😀 No, we are not at all surprised at the winner, tho I didn’t realize you loved ACOTAR so much!
