Novel Knockout

Series Smackdown

Book against book, friend against friend. Welcome to the fourth annual ThriftBooks Novel Knockout! This year's theme: Series Smackdown. 32 spectacular series (all nominated by book lovers!) went head to head in social media until the champion was decided!

And the winner is...

J. R. R. Tolkien's Lord of the Rings/Middle Earth Universe! Battling The Hunger Games on social media sounds worse to us than any balrog, but the Ringers managed to come out on top for their first ever Novel Knockout win! Coming off of last year's loss to Harry Potter, we are so excited to see this series make a comeback and earn that top spot!

Second place goes to...

The Hunger Games series by Suzanne Collins! Hunger Games fans, AKA Tributes as they call themselves, showed up and fought hard every round in a showing that would make Katniss herself proud. Just barely missing out on the championship this year, we are sure we haven't seen the last of this series.

Tied for Third: A Series of Unfortunate Events and Jurassic Park

These two series make up the other half of our Final Four! Jurassic Park is notable this year for defeating the juggernaut that is Stephen King’s Dark Tower series early on, securing a path to the final four. A Series of Unfortunate Events managed to outlast the beloved and long-lasting Little House and Hardy Boys, really earning its spot in the hearts of readers.

And below are the other series that competed in this year's tournament. They may not have won, but they played the game and we can respect that enough to add them to our "To-be-read" piles.
