Round 1 Results, sort of!

Please note: this is a revised version of the post that went up at 2:30 this afternoon.

We will give a more detailed break down of the results with numbers and statistics and complex math shortly, but for now:

A Monster Calls and Chime are vying for the Pyrite medal, but the point spread between them is so narrow that we are doing a second vote. If you’ve read both of titles, please vote in our second poll so that we can declare a clear-cut winner!

Voting ends tonight at 7:30 8:30 PM, Eastern: new deadline based on 7:30 closing resulting in no tiebreak! This is close, but only one book can win. Once we have any sort of conclusion (come on, vote! Get others to vote!) we’ll let you know and post all the rest of the data as well.

Honor vote tomorrow, using the 8 finalists that are not Chime or A Monster Calls plus whichever of those doesn’t win.

    How nice! Two I’d actually read! Both are deserving, but I still didn’t have trouble deciding….

    A Monster Calls was great, but as far as I’m concerned, Chime broke new ground for YA.

  3. Gah! Not my top choices…

    Not mine either, Brain Lair. I’m a little disappointed, even though I did love A Monster Calls. Still eager to see the results, though!
