Round One Smackdown Results

1 comment:

  1. We booted out the Newberry, the zombies, the post-apocalyptic ass-kicker and Lemony Snicket, and we didn’t even cry. Though I do await some Smack Back on a few of those decisions.

    How I see Round Two in a cyber nutshell: Double award winner goes down in DFTBA flames, Canada vs. Book Thief wannabe…hmm.,actual poems vs. poetic language, sad vs. creepy – bet on creepy, weird story vs. weird format and I know one judge hated one book so it’s a toss up, last graphic goes up against Arlene’s pick and is left in a cartoony puddle, Rotters rules (so going to listen to this one!), Murder vs. Scrabble – hang on nerds!
