Elite 8!


The votes from Sweet 16 have been tallied and the winners are:

  • My Sister is a Vampire: Switched by Sienna Mercer
  • The Isle of the Lost: a Descendants Novel by Melissa De la Cruz
  • Diary of a Minecraft Zombie by Herobrine Books
  • Wings of Fire: The Lost Heir by Tui Sutherland
  • Dragonbreath by Ursula Vernon
  • Sunny Side Up by Jenni Holm
  • Witch & Wizard by James Patterson
  • Jedi Academy by Jeffrey Brown

We have vampires, zombies, dragons, witches, wizards, Jedis, evil empires and a girl visiting her grandfather! Fantasy and science fiction is dominating this year. Last year half the books in the Elite 8 were realistic fiction. Interesting trend this year!

Another fascinating┬áturn of events, the most popular book has already been eliminated! Didn’t predict that one! After the contest is over, I’ll tell the kids which was ranked #1 and #16. It’s fascinating to see how their ranking was a predictor of the outcome. Last year’s winner, Harry Potter, was ranked #16. At this point we can safely say it’s NOT a predictor! I wonder if the title ranked #2 will pull it off this year? Time will tell…

Happy Voting!
