March Madness Book Edition

So I did a thing… I decided that us readers can take back the month of March and have some madness of our own.

I made this bracket of books that I read in the last year. Most of these I loved so I will definitely win this one!

Over the next few weeks I will tweet out polls for each of the brackets until we are down to the finals – so everyone please vote!

And if you don’t follow me, I’m on twitter at @fictionnochaser

Let me know which books you think will win or lose in the comments!

Top Ten Tuesday | Characters I’d Like to Switch Places With

Top Ten Tuesday (5)

This was much harder than I expected! Mostly because I read a lot of YA and I don’t want to live in the middle of a war, even if there are hot fairies.

Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in January of 2018. It was born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together.

The rules are simple:

  • Each Tuesday, Jana assigns a new topic. Create your own Top Ten list that fits that topic – putting your unique spin on it if you want.
  • Everyone is welcome to join but please link back to The Artsy Reader Girl in your own Top Ten Tuesday post.
  • Add your name to the Linky widget on that day’s post so that everyone can check out other bloggers’ lists.
  • Or if you don’t have a blog, just post your answers as a comment.
