Book Boyfriend Battle 2016 BRACKET CHALLENGE!

Posted on April 5, 2016 by Erin | 2 Comments

 

Hey Everyone! This coming May will be our Third BLOGOVERSARY! In celebration of our blog’s birthday we have brought back the  BOOK BOYFRIEND BATTLE! There’ s nothing like watching a bunch of HOT & SWOONY BOYS duke it out. :D   We’re also going to be holding a BRACKET CHALLENGE (details below) for the readers as well!

Has anyone here even been a part of a NCAA College Basketball March Madness Bracket Challenge? You know, where you fill out a bracket, pick & choose College Basketball Teams hoping that you’ll choose correctly to win the pot at the end of the challenge? Yes? No?

You are essentially predicting the outcome of the tournament when filling out a bracket. The Tournament (or Book Boyfriend Battle in this case) will not start until MAY 1st, 2016. You have up until 11:59pm on 4/30/16 to fill out your bracket and make your predictions as to who is going to win each poll in the #BBB16. For each correct guess you will receive points. I believe the first round will be 1 point for each correct guess, the second round you get 5 points for each correct guess. By the end of the Tournament the person with the highest total points on their bracket will be the winner of the Bracket Challenge!

This year we will actually have a first, second and third place prize. So more winners, YAY! 🙂

You will be allowed to fill out/edit your bracket up until 11:59 EST  on April 30th, 2016.
The Book Boyfriend Battle will officially BEGIN ON MAY 1st, 2016.
Tournament Schedule for the first round will be available soon, please check back!

Anyone have any questions? Please feel free to comment and ask.

There are 64 Book Boyfriends. They’ve been split up into FOUR groups (You’ll notice this if you check out the scoring bracket here.) and have been given a seed number. You’ll start out by picking your favorites from group 1, then move on to group 2, etc. If you’re not sure who a book boyfriend is listed, we have a complete list of the Book Boyfriends with Book/Series Names, Author’s Name, Goodreads Links and even Buy Now links located HERE. A link to it is also under “Book Boyfriend Battle” on our Navigation bar. It called “Book Boyfriend Seed Info” there. 🙂 Edits will be allowed until 11:59pm on 4/30/16. After Midnight on 5/1/16 the brackets will be closed to editing.
