Bookish friends, how are you all?
There’s no other way for me to say it: the world is a scary place right now. We’re stressed, we’re scared, and much is uncertain. In my silly corner of the internet here, the least I can do is create a fun distraction. What do you say about a little Spring Hunkness: Championship of Hunks competition?
(Yes, this is the artist formerly known as March Hunkness, but since March is over and is best forgotten, and April may not prove much better, we’re going with Spring Hunkness, okay?)
If you’ve played before, you know what’s up. If this is your first time participating in our little game, WELCOME! You are in for a treat.
Here’s how it works:
The thirty-six dreamboats who have served as our Literary Hunks of the Month will face off, beautiful head to beautiful head. You, lovely readers, can vote, vote, vote until one fictional dreamboat reigns supreme and takes the title of 2020 Book Perfume Champion of Hunks. (And since we didn’t hold this competition last year, 2018 winner Roger Wakefield has definitely been milking it, I’m sure to his father-in-law’s chagrin.)
Who will take the cake this year? That’s up to you. So go ahead and get voting while I head off to the kitchen, because now that I’ve mentioned cake, that’s all I can think about.
Round one closes on Saturday, April 11 at 1:00 p.m. (ET) and you can vote as much as your little hearts desire!
