HarperCollins March Madness - Semi Finals

It's the semi finals for HarperCollins March Madness. Only 4 are books left. All of my favourites now have been eliminated.

It was really a funny week. For some of the battles, it was mostly clear from the start who the victor was likely to be. However, other battles (I believe it was the one between Silverwing by Kenneth Oppel and The Hobbit by J.R.R. Tolkien) went back and forth and there was no telling who was going to come out on top until the very last second.

Another funny thing was that each of the books I voted for this week lost. All of them! I could see half way through the week it wasn't going well, but I continued to vote for them anyway.

I'll admit now that my favourites are gone and I haven't read any of the remaining books, my interest and motivation have diminished somewhat. I'm still going to hang in there to see who's going to ultimately win, but unlike last week, I probably will only vote a few times. How's your energy level/interest holding up? To vote, click here.

I won't even hazard a guess as to which book will come out on top. Do you have any predictions?

  1. I"ve read 3 of the final 4 and the 4th is sitting in MT TBR. It didn't make it any easier to chose.


Thanks so much for your comment. I really appreciate it. Unfortunately, I've been getting lots of spam comments, so I'm turning on word verification to help keep spammers away. I know it's a pain; I don't like it either. Hopefully, in time I'll be able to turn it off again. Thank you!
