So, it comes down to it, huh? I have to pick a winner, don’t I? It can’t be a draw can it?
It comes down to the old standby; list making.
I am picking (drumroll please!) My Most Excellent Year!! I feel like I should belt it out, like a showtune, in honor of Augie!!! But really, this was a hard pick for me. I have thought about it all week long, going back and forth between each book. While I loved Ben immensely from The Last Exit to Normal and feel that his story is one that everyone should read, I just adored My Most Excellent Year. And while I adored Augie the most, please don’t think he’s the main reason to read the book or the reason I selected it to win. He was just the icing on the cake of a wonderful book. Quite simply, My Most Excellent Year was a joy to read and I feel the most deserving to go on.
If you missed my reviews of My Most Excellent Year and The Last Exit to Normal, please go check them out. I hope I have convinced you to get both of these excellent books a chance. And stay tuned, there are two more rounds of the Nerds Heart YA tournament to go!!!
To celebrate, I am going to give away two copies of My Most Excellent Year, so leave a comment and I’ll pick a winner on July 24th! And I hate to do it, but US and Canada only please.
