It’s that time of year… Book Madness! You might be wondering, what is Book Madness, exactly? Well, we’re here to answer exactly that.
Book Madness is a fun bookish event where bloggers, Booktubers, and bookstagrammers come together to choose their favourite literary characters and convince YOU why you should vote for them. It sounds like a LOT of fun! Now, you might be wondering … which character did we pick?
Well, we chose not one, but two awesome characters. They are none other than…
FRED AND GEORGE WEASLEY
Because, of course, how could we not pick twins? (Though we are definitely Parvati and Padma Patil–one of us is Gryffindor while the other is Ravenclaw, so it works perfectly!)
Anyhow, let’s get into how Book Madness works!
All you have to do is read through everyone’s blog posts/bookstagram posts/watch Book Madness participants’ YouTube videos that go live today, March 1st, 2017, to read all about the awesome characters and why YOU should vote for them! Then, visit this link to vote! You can vote for up to 5 different characters per round, and the ones with the most votes move on to round 2.
[Update: We made it to round 2! Thanks, all!]
So … why vote?
Just by voting, you can win cool prizes! All you have to do is vote to be able to enter them, so go, go, go! Voting for Round 1 ends on March 5th at 11:59pm Central Standard Time.
Now … it’s time to list all the reasons why you should vote for Fred and George Weasley.
First, because they were in Harry Potter.
Okay, that was obvious. But you can’t not love them for being the hilarious side characters whose humour you just can’t live without.
Or the fact that they say classic lines like these…
And this next line works perfectly in practically any situation. Someone says they hate reading? Someone says Fred and George Weasley were totally unnecessary? Tell them this:
And of course, the best way to start off your morning is with a cup of joe and … diffusing some tension.
And their hilarious one-liners, even when they’re wounded. *sobs quietly from afar*
And, I mean, they have their own joke shop, for goodness’ sake. They really are wizards!
And there you have it! All the reasons why Fred and George Weasley are some of the best literary characters out there! Don’t forget to VOTE for them so we can move onto round 2, and use the hashtag #BookMadness17 to spread the book-character love! HP ftw!
