While we’re waiting for the nominations to be tabulated, let’s start some friendly wagers on who’s going to walk away with it this year.
Go nominate, slacker!
What are you waiting for?
It’s that time of year once again! We’re about to launch the fifth annual Persephone Magazine Middlemarch Madness, where all our favorite literary heroines are pitted against each other in a battle to the finish.
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?
We have a winner!
It’s been another fantastic (and fun!) bracket, readers. Thanks for all your votes, and your great comments. Ready to make the last choice of the season?
We’ve lost four more contenders. Find out who in our next poll, after the cut.
Some of these races came down to the wire. It’s getting really exciting!
Last poll of the week!
Happy Thursday, voters! Who’ll make it through today?
As amandamarieg said in the comments on Monday, “What do we say to the god of death?”
The days are zipping by, polls are getting shorter, and the stakes are getting higher.
The votes have been counted, let’s see the results.
Monday we’ll have a Sweet Sixteen!
