We're down to so few books now. The results of The Imperiled Poppets Bracket are as follows:
The Hasty Marriage took down The Secret Pool by several votes. Both of these books inspire strong feelings even if they aren't anyone's top two, so I imagine that that vote is going to hurt. Cassandra By Chance beat Roses Have Thorns by a pretty good margin. And The Promise of Happiness beat Tulips For Augusta. There are some epic books in that bracket (not intentional, I assure you) and some good ones have fallen.
"Betty Keira. We, The Noble Faction of Lovers of The Secret Pool will
not be mollified by a picture of Chris Pine, Foremost of the Chrises...
Well, not unless it's a really, really big picture. And swoony too."
A) The Barfing on His Brogues Bracket:
Blow Hot, Blow Cold
B) The Handful of A Levels Bracket:
Wish With the Candles
A Gentle Awakening
Tabitha By Moonlight
C) The Hocked Locket Bracket:
Henrietta's Own Castle
Only By Chance
Dearest Mary Jane
D) The Imperiled Poppets Bracket:
The Hasty Marriage
Cassandra By Chance
The Promise of Happiness
Your vote should look something like this (with my examples drawn entirely at random):
A) Caroline's Waterloo
B)A Gentle Awakening
C)Dearest Mary Jane
D) The Promise of Happiness
And then below your vote, I expect wailing and gnashing of teeth. Don't listen to what the haters tell you, Betties. Running mascara and rage-eyes make us look classy.
Classy, you hear?
Again, the novel you vote for should be the one that you deem least worthy of wearing the winning tiara. Best of luck with the voting. Some of those brackets look really difficult. Pretty please don't make me break any ties!
