After counting all your votes, and a few close calls (including a last minute hustle by Pippi Longstocking), we’re ready to share the top 32 with you.
Here’s a PDF of the updated bracket.
Here’s how the matches will play out next week:
- Scout Finch v. Alice
- Luna Lovegood v. Ella
- Elizabeth Bennett v. Sethe
- Arya v. Clarice Starling
- Jo March v. Anne Shirley
- Alanna v. Lyra Belaqua
- Lily Bristow v. Thursday Next
- Death v. Elphaba
- Harriet v. Ramona
- Sophie v. Katniss
- Grace Makutsi v. Jane Eyre
- Agnes Nutter v. Buttercup
- Pippi v. Violet
- Cimorene v. Matilda
- Leah Price v. Beatrice
- Eowyn v. Offred
Some of these pairings would make great fanfic. Join us right here, all week, at 5 p.m., EST, for all your literary lady polling needs.
A vote for Grace is a vote against Jane. I’m just sayin’. (And also winking, but it’s my job to stir the pot.)

I’m looking at the ladies who lost and JUDGING YOU!
Pippi is through? PIE ON THE FLOOR PARTY *\o\*
Oh my word. I don’t think I can survive Wednesday. Jo vs. Anne? The same day as Alanna vs. Lyra? I can’t even TAKE those pairings.
But come Friday, VOTE EOWYN! She slew the witch king of Angmar. Offred slept with a dude and hoped someone would save her. There is a clear winner when it comes to badass-itude folks!
For SHAME Selena! Trying to influence the bracket! A vote for Jane is a vote for fair and influence free voting! America! Bald eagles! Apple pie! *collapses seizing from an overdose of patriotism”
Oh, Tiffany. You’ll be missed.
Also: TEAM KATNISS!
