Middlemarch Madness IV has ended with a victory for
Pileofmonkeys Lyra Belacqua, but we’re curious — how many of the books whose badass heroines were nominated have you actually read? And which ones are you adding to your reading list before next year’s bracket rolls around?

I got 39 – and I clearly need to brush up on my Adult Sci-Fi/Fantasy/Horror genre.
Out of curiosity, what do you guys do when you come across two heroines you don’t know in the polls? I tend to not cast my vote unless I actually have love for a character or unless I see people making a good case for someone in the comments (which was super hard this year, as I was obviously Team Lyra and wanted very much to strategy-vote against her competitors…Lyra would have done it!).
And what happened to MMM bookclub? Don’t we usually read the winner’s book right after? I’d love to do that this year, I actually have a copy of Northern Lights/Golden Compass (depending on your country) all ready by my bedside! Along with a cup of choclatl, of course.
When I don’t know them, I go for the underdog.
23…there are quite a few that are on my list and/or in my Kindle waiting for me, though.
(I did cheat and check of ASOIAF even though I’m only in book 3)
19. And that’s cheating because I’ve only read 1 of the Divergent books, and only books 1-3 with Harry Potter. And I abandoned Wicked because I hated it.
This is why I started reviewing books — to be wider read, rather than obsessing over one author and reading everything they have, and then ending up with a narrow-but-deep range of reading.
I cheated a bit and clicked the ones I watched instead of read as well. And still end up with 32.
56. In my defense, I have an English degree, so more than half were required reading at one point or another.
Yeah, I’m with you at 53…
I scored 11. Um, yeah. I’ll be in the corner reading board books thankyouverymuch.
I’ve only read 29. So uncultured, many ignorant. Much reading needed. Wow!
On the plus side, I have a huuuuuuuuge reading list ready for my vacation/honeymoon next month. Woohoo!
I’m at 31 (though a ton of those are series) and I’m definitely adding a bunch of the others to my reading list as well.
That’s me at 33. The Dresden Files alone is at 14 books, with a fifteenth coming out in March, and is predicted to be in the 30s!
