The Tournament of Books is here, the tournament of books is here!
The tournament will start on Thursday of the week. The only thing bad about it is that I will be in Spain during the bulk of the first round picks. Hopefully, I can find a free wifi spot to keep up with the drama. I will post my reviews to the 10 (almost 11 books) I have read for the tourney soon.
My picks to win the first round are as follows:
Sense of an Ending, Salvage the Bones, 1Q84, The Tiger's Wife, State of Wonder, Swamplandia, Marriage Plot, Art of Fielding.
Salvage the Bones (this could be a very close match), Tigers Wife, State of Wonder, Art of Fielding (again a close one).
Tigers Wife, Art of Fielding, State of Wonder (Zombie), Marriage Plot (Zombie)
Tigers Wife and well, I don't know. In one set of brackets I have Art of Fielding winning and the other the Marriage Plot.
And, Finally, the Tigers Wife will take home the Rooster!
