MGMTD: The Bracket

Here she is, it was tough to pick just 16 books from the 2010 middle grade fiction list. Honestly, I don't know how librarians do it. Now I stuck to fiction because that's what I write and it's my blog. And I placed them in categories and we'll go from there. I also picked books that I own or want to own. Yeah, I'm going to be doing a lot of reading.

Because I haven't read all of these, I am open to anyone who would like to guest blog, review, and pick a winner. If you're interested, leave a comment stating which match-up you would like to review.

Otherwise, I'll reveal the winners at random over the course of the month...and possibly next month or however long it takes to finish. This is for book-nerd fun. So really, if you want to review, I promise, you'll get the gig.

Rules: You get a point for ever correct winner you pick. So look over The Bracket, and email me your picks at brookefav [at] gmail [d0t] com.

The beauty of playing is that you don't have to read the books to pick a winner. So let me ask you, do you feel lucky?

The person with the most points will win a copy of the winning book OR a book of their choice from the bracket list.

I'll be reviewing the Steampunk category next Tuesday. Let the battle begin.
