  1. GO LYRA! I’m about to lose Kel to a series not a character (not that I don’t now see that some people are in it for the character, but I’m sticking with this one – Kel still wins on character) and see Offred keep moving on, so it looks like Team Lyra is going to be very big for me this year! Team Lyra or GTFO.

  2. Team Thursday Next! Seriously, y’all, she’s a veteran of the ongoing war in the Crimea, she has a cloned Dodo for a pet, she has a time-travelling son, a genius daughter, and another daughter who doesn’t actually exist. And did I mention she can step into books and fights literary crime? Because yeah, she hangs out in Bookworld and protects all our favorite characters! HBIC, BAMF. VOTE FOR HER!

    1. This was the only tough one for me. My heart led me to Leslie in the end. I’m happy it did when to my dismay I see she is losing. That means I made the correct choice. 10 year old me will always love how much I sobbed over that book.
