Middlemarch Madness II: Voting Day 9

We’re down to sixteen literary badasses, and the choices are getting more brutal each week.

This week we’ll be narrowing down the Sweet Sixteen to the Elite Eight, with two polls per day. Like always, I’m holding the results until Friday, because I am pure evil, with a side of unicorn.

Today you’ll be deciding between Scout Finch and Pippi Longstocking in the YA Literary Fiction category, and Elizabeth Bennett is going against Antigone in the Adult Literary Fiction category. Who will win? I’ll know tomorrow, but the rest of you have to wait until Friday.  Mwahahahah.

I’ll vote for anyone who isn’t Elizabeth Bennet. She was self-righteous and irritating, and I’m confused about why her character is considered appealing to anyone.

Wait. Do I also have to consider Elizabeth Bennet in ‘Pride and Prejudice and Zombies’…? I didn’t hate her quite so much in that book!
