March Madness (2)

Hello again dear readers. You are only a day and a bit away from the weekend! Just don’t forget to enjoy the moment while you’re looking to the horizon.

If you missed last week’s March Madness post, you should probably go check it out here.

To simplify it for you, I want to hold a March Madness tournament, but for books.

I narrowed the books down into four more popular categories, each having 16 books.

I decided on these genres and these books doing some pretty thorough research into popular books in each genre.

I will make a post about the rules for this, and what will be happening during March a few weeks before it goes live, but you can check out the list of books in each genre down below.
