Last night was another record setter for votes, with many of you coming out to speak for your favorite lady heroines. I’m not sure there will be any surprises in the results, but I’d like the Pratchett fans to go ahead and sit down or get a bowl of comfort pudding or the like.
To begin, here are your winners from last night.
In the YA Fantasy/Sci-fi/Dystopia division, one Ms. Lyra Belaqua beats the underdog Tiffany Aching, but the latter didn’t go down without a fight.
In the YA Fiction division, Ramona Quimby wiped the floor with Frankie Landau Banks, but I’m pretty sure Ramona would have been a tough contender against any of the YA fiction badasses. Ramona is one tough cookie.
In the Adult Fantasy/Sci-fi/Dystopia division, Vivianne ends up victorious over Esmerelda Weatherwax in spite of her early lead.
Finally, in Adult Fiction, Kate pulls off the first major upset, knocking out #4 seat Hester Prynne. (WHAT?)
I think we all need a dixie cup of the good box wine from behind the server after that.
Here’s your new bracket, RIP to the ladies who we’ve said goodbye to tonight. *insert cheesy empowering pop song montage here*
And here is tonight’s poll, introducing overall favorites Katniss Everdeen and Lisbeth Salander.
