What is Bookcrush-A-Thon?

Bookcrush-A-Thon is a fangirly celebration for the best part of every YA book... the totally dreamy fictional guy who could never exist in real life!

There's been a lot of hoopla lately about Team Edward and Team Jacob, Team Peeta and Team Gale, Team Shadowhunter, Team Vampire, Team Werewolf, Team Mortals, Team Immortals, Team Team Team Team Team team team team...

...and I thought, "I wonder whose Team really has the most might."

So now Bookcrush-A-Thon is borne! It's a friendly competition ONLY. NO BASHING IS ALLOWED!

Each round of bookcrushathon will last approximately six months. Twenty-four dreamy bookcrushes. One ultimately dreamy winner per Round! Each week, one more bookcrush will be eliminated until only one is left! It's like Survivor, only not stupid.

Round #001, Week #003 ELIMINATION Voting!

Keepers

In this poll, please vote for the ONE BOOKCRUSH you would LIKE TO SEE CONTINUE ON in the competition. (It will appear as three poll questions because LiveJournal won't let me put more than 10 options for one question, grrrr, but please be HONEST and vote for only ONE TO CONTINUE ON.)

I've really got to read the Vampire diaries. I need to know who this Marcus guy is and what makes him so great. :D

Don't vote to eliminate characters you haven't read, people! Haha I say that based on my very biased assumption that there's no way 17 people could vote to eliminate Jace if they'd read the Mortal Instruments, and must only be doing so because they see him as competition for their crush :P

Marcus Flutie isn't from TVD, he's from The Jessica Darling Series, which is contemp (no supernatural creatures at all).

And I've read TMI and Jace is my least fave character in the series! Some girls just don't like snarky, rude guys.

I stand corrected, totally mentioned the wrong books. *facepalm* And don't worry, I'm only messing when I say Jace should be loved by everyone. :D

Jace <3
Agreed. Who would ever vote to eliminate Jace? He's Jace. Meaning, he's absolutely amazing.

I agree! I've never read the series with Marcus Flutie, so I can't in good conscious vote to eliminate him no matter how bad I want Jace to win!! If anything, it makes me want to read the Jessica Darling series as well as the many others mentioned in this contest I haven't had the chance to read yet!

I like Twilight, but I'm amused by the many votes to eliminate Edward, who I think is fine for Bella but I'd never date, and Jacob, who has Nice Guy Syndrome from hell. :)
