While others spend months eagerly anticipating the Superbowl or NBA championships... I get all hot and bothered over SLJ's The Battle of the Kids Books! This March-Madness-bracket-style-tournament is just way too much fun to follow. Not only do your favorite books of the past year duke it out against each other, each day's winner is decided by a different author and then eloquently defended by said author. These are typically my favorite reviews of the entire year.
I'm thrilled that the list of contenders is out now because I'm going to make darn sure I read every single one before the battle begins.
And if Between Shades of Gray doesn't win... someone will pay. Unless A Monster Calls wins. Ok, who am I kidding? I've only read 4 out of 16 books on the list! Lots of catching up to do... What about you, book lovers?? Which of the contenders gets your vote?!
