We’ve eliminated all the doubles per author, so it’s time to start narrowing down the women who will make it to the actual bracket.
Sharpen your #2 pencils and curl your arm around your paper so no one copies. You can pick up to seven women in each of the two polls below. We’ll take the top sixteen vote-getters in each category and drop them in the bracket. The literary lady with the most votes in each category will earn the #1 spot, moving on down. Happy voting!

I just had an awful thought – did anyone nominate Jo March from Little Women…? I am afraid that I won’t see her name later today in the YA polls! Fingers crossed that someone remembered her.
You know, I’m not sure…
I definitely did nominate Jo in YA–I just went back and checked–but she doesn’t show up in the poll. Can anything be done about it at this late stage?
On the same note, I nominated Merricat from “We Have Always Lived in the Castle” in adult literary, and she doesn’t show up either.
I think that on my screen, it’s showing up as both this and last year’s nominees, actually (I recognize a few book titles that definitely weren’t named this year, like House on Mango Street). Jo March was missing still :(
Next year, Jo!
Jo was an oversight, it was 4AM and I was scrambling to get everybody in. I’ll make sure she gets in the bracket, she’s always a shoe-in. Who wrote We Have Always Lived in the Castle? I’m thinking she was one of those eliminated in the author run-offs.
No worries! Thank you.
Shirley Jackson wrote “We Have Always Lived in the Castle.”
(spelling note: Mr Stephenson’s first name is spelled Neal, not Neil).
Geez, that was difficult. Tomorrow is going to suck mightily.
That was tough! NOT looking forward to tomorrow!!!
