Last week, we nominated six books series, all of which we thought had serious potential to become 'The Next Twilight.' Readers def weren't afraid to vote for their favorite and we logged just over 55,000 votes. As for the winner? Well, things got a little complicated.
'Wings' emerged as the front runner early on and it looked like Aprilynne Pike's series would easily win. But then a second series, 'Beautiful Creatures,' began to close in. When we decided to extend the voting one more day, things got really interesting. 'Wings' maintained its lead up until the very end of the night, but a last-minute surge on Twitter had 'Beautiful Creatures' fans voting their hearts out and barely edging out 'Wings' when the poll ended at midnight. But then a few hours later, 'Wings' took back its lead.
Confusing, right? We thought so too.
Our unexpected extra voting day was unfair to 'Wings' fans who thought they had it in the bag on Sunday. Similarly, we're pretty sure 'Beautiful Creatures' fans didn't want their win overturned in the middle of the night. A true winner is just too close to call, therefore, we are calling a SHOWDOWN!
It's true, 'The 'Next Twilight' contest continues, but only for 'Wings' and 'Beautiful Creatures.' And this time, fans only get one vote. You have until Sunday, January 30th at 11:59 PM EST to cast yours. And we mean it this time, we even brought out a fancier poll tool that shuts off at midnight.
