We’ve now finished the opening rounds of the Tournament of Books! I’ve done alright with my predictions, but that is something I love about this Tournament. It’s so subjective and based on the judge it is almost impossible to predict how every round is going to go. I tend to pick the books that I’ve read and/or placed on my TBR prior to the start of the Tournament. I’ll also pick books that have a plot summary that sounds like something I would tend to choose over the competition. I’m always surprised at how wrong I can be sometimes, but I almost welcome it! I always add new books to my TBR that I would never glance twice at if they weren’t in the Tournament. I’ve found some incredible books this way. And to think, I almost didn’t read them!
Here are my predictions for the quarterfinal round:
The Underground Railroad v. All the Birds in the Sky. My pick: The Underground Railroad
I’ll be back next week to make my last few predictions for the rest of the tournament!
