March Madness: Book Boyfriend Edition

Welcome to our bookish version of March Madness! 

Throughout the month of March, we will be doing a bracket face-off between our favorite guys from books. There's 64 guys total, in 4 different divisions.
 The divisions are:

YA Dystopian/Sci-Fi/Fantasy #1
YA Contemporary/Historical
Classics & Adult Fiction
YA Dystopian/Sci-Fi/Fantasy #2

We've ranked each guy from 1-16 in each bracket, along with guys from the same books going against each other early on so one book can't dominate the others. There will be 2-4 posts each week where you can vote for which guy you'd like to see advance to the next round (see schedule below).

Throughout the tournament you can enter to win the giveaway (prizes subject to change AND additional prizes may be added; more entries = more prizes unlocked!). The giveaway will start when voting begins. See the bottom of the post for the rafflecopter & details (Open to US and International).

Each post will be linked back to this main one, so if you ever miss any, you can check here and links will be posted on the voting schedule below.
