Welcome back! It’s Monday, and we’re about to embark on a week of really harsh decisions. To make the pain of having to pick a little less, we’ll only be voting on two pairs each day this week, with the Elite Eight revealed on Friday. Next week, we’ll create the Final Four on Monday and Tuesday, vote on the two Final Four pairs on Wednesday and we’ll have our final, GRAND CHAMPION OF ALL THE LADYHEROES vote on Thursday.
This means the winner will be declared on April 1, and I promise whatever our plans may be for April Fool’s Day, we won’t fuck with Middlemarch.
Here’s a link to the most recent Middlemarch Bracket, in case you need it.
And here’s a recap of the ladies in the Sweet Sixteen:
Kate, Offred, Lady Macbeth and Jo March in Adult Fiction
Anathema Device, Vivianne, Esmerelda Weatherwax and Morgaine in Adult Sci-fi/Fantasy/Dystopia
Lyra Belaqua, Katniss Everdeen, Meg Murray and Hermione Granger in YA Sci-Fi/Fantasy/Dystopia
Scout Finch, Jessica “not so” Darling, Anne of Green Gables and Harriet the Spy for YA Fiction.
