HarperCollins Canada March Madness 2012

PhotobucketHarperCollins Canada's 5th Annual HCC March Madness tournament began this week. This tournament pits the crème de la crème of its books (64 in total) from Marley & Me to Prince Caspian to To Kill A Mockingbird (for a period of 6 weeks).

As their tagline states: "64 books begin, but only 1 will be crowned champion."

Why I am so excited about this year's tournament is that one of my most favourite reads of all time, Divergent by Veronica Roth, is one of the books included (alongside a few other books that I have really enjoyed, including Ink Exchange by Melissa Marr, Airborn by Kenneth Oppel and I Am Number Four by Pittacus Lore).

So why am I telling you this? So that you will vote for Divergent! Seriously, Divergent has everything that you could ever want in a book- Tris (AKA one of the most kick-ass female characters I have ever read of before), Four (the most perfect combination of Jace Wayland's swoon-worthiness and Dimitri Belikov's warrior-godness) and a dystopian society like no other (Have you played the Divergent Choosing Ceremony on Facebook yet?). 

Furthermore, it's about time that YA books received the recognition that they deserve- that they are just as good as, if not better than, their adult counterparts.

Need an incentive? One participant will win ALL 64 OF THE BOOKS INCLUDED IN THE TOURNAMENT

So what are you waiting for? Go vote! And maybe you will find a new favourite book from reading the provided samples of each and every one included!



  1. SUCH AN AWESOME IDEA!!!! Can you vote if you don't live in Canada? And I agree, YA books are amazing and every bit as intriguing and complex and brilliant as adult fiction:)

  2. Aw... not a Canuck, but I still need to read Divergent. Don't hate me. I do have it! Just haven't gotten to it yet. I will... promise!

  3. I'm fairly certain that you can (it doesn't ask for any information regarding your whereabouts or anything when you vote)!

    1. You might now be able to qualify for the prize however... I will do some research!


Thanks so much for taking the time to comment! I really appreciate it!

Though I appreciate awards I have decided to make my blog an "award-free zone". Unfortunately I do not have the time to hold up my end of award-giving. But again, I appreciate you thinking of me!
