Welcome to YA-Sisterhood's Tournament Page

Here at the YA-Sisterhood, we love tournaments!  We are a family full of coaches and sports fans.  Our father was a coach before he retired, our uncles are coaches, and the rest of the family, husbands, cousins, and grandparents are all hardcore sports fanatics.  Last year, during March Madness, we were casually joking around, how the only way this would be interesting for us is if it were a tournament of book characters pitting it out against each other (preferably our fictional crushes!)  And, from there, our Crush Tourney and our Tournament of Heroines was born!  This will be the 4th tournament we have held or the 3rd YA Crush Tournament.  The past winner are as follows:

2011 YA Crush Tourney Winner: Jace Wayland
2011 YA Heroine Tourney Winner: Clary Fray
2012 YA Crush Tourney Winner: Adrian Ivashkov
2013 YA Crush Tourney Winner:  Dimitri Belikov



This year instead of have 1- 28 seeds, we had 6 seeds from the of the categories, Speculative, Realistic, Indie and Debut. Then 4, 7 seeds that were the Wild Cards.

  3. Angel Grace LingJuly 8, 2011 at 1:15 AM

    I love this <3

  4. So...where do I vote?

  5. I don't get it? What happened to Four and Jace?
    Oh and great idea by the way!

  6. YEah, I don't get it either. How can this exist without Four and Jace?

  7. Look at the tournament bracket, they both had by's the first round!

  8. This idea was great I love it !!!!

  9. love this, I'll vote all day for Jace

  10. for #17 (since i dont get how this works 100%) Dimka!!

  11. How much votes did patch get?

  12. Anon not sure how many votes Patch got, exactly. But he won with a 6,000 vote lead. :)

  13. Hmmm I like the chocies but I cant believe Ash isnt in this...

  14. Ash is in the tournament! He's seed #6 and match #16!

  15. I'm stuck between Tod and Peeta. I don't know who I want to win!!

  16. Oh no!!! My baby lost!!! :( Hale, don't worry I still think you're #1 YA Crush Worthy! :)

  17. Having a panic attack because I don't know how to vote, and Jace might lose if I don't!! :( Am I just really thick or is there a reason there isn't a vote button next to the name?

  18. oh god please don't make it come down to Patch and Jace!!! I can't choose between them!!!! ARGH!!!

  19. @phoeBEE

    Jace doesn't currently have a match running. This page is only the Tournament Summary page. Go to our home page and you'll see the posts for the individual matches. When a match is active, there will be a poll at the bottom of the post. Jace's next match is Monday, Aug. 1st.

    As for the the pink color, the matches with the colored writing are links to matches that have already happened if you want to look back at a previous match. Matches all in white have not occurred yet or are in progress.

  20. Why does it say Hale won on the chart put that Zachary won on the web page?

  21. Lisa--

    I'm not sure I understand what you're asking. If by chart, you mean bracket, we're a little behind on updating it. If you look at it again, I think you'll see that Hale beat four, but we haven't updated it to include his match against Zachary yet...

  22. I think that the poll freezes once you have voted, so you're not able to vote again. That's what happened to me.

  23. It does. We started out the tournament allowing multiple votes in round one, but after crashing numerous poll sites we switched it to one vote per person starting in Round Two.

  24. In round one it says Vincent won but it was jack

  25. @Erika

    Where are you seeing that?

    On both the schedule and the bracket it says that Jack won.

  26. oh my god.

    Jace against Ash?! i allowed to vote for both? :S i love them both.

  27. I am going to vote for Ash, since he is AMAZING!!!!!!!!! :)

  28. Can't figure out how to vote; if I could, I'd choose Jace! :D

  29. I would totally vote for Jace

  30. Jace!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Jace!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  31. I love Jace!!! please Jace!!xD

  35. Is the voting here? *looks around*

  36. There its no other choice except Jace!

  37. The actual voting page (hope this is allowed!)

    THe home page!

  38. Yep, on the main page! Thanks Elizabeth!

  39. GOOOOOOOOO ASHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  40. Jace! Jace! Jace! Jace! Lets do this for Cassie!!!

  41. JACE WAYLAND (Herondale, Morgensten, Lightwood...) FTW!!!!

  42. It should have been called the faint-worthy four.

  43. JACEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!♥♥♥

  50. Oh dear, I'm looking forwards - if Katniss and Rose both win their matches they'll be going up against each other! I don't think I could choose!

  51. I officially have no one left in this tournament that I like, except for Hermione :(

  52. I want CLARY to win!! Too bad she's got to face Katniss and Hermione to do it :(

  53. Hey girls, I just found this site today (blame fb) and I was wondering if you'd given any consideration to including Keller from the novel Nomansland by: Lesley Hauge ?
    Well, just thought I'd ask.

  54. @Marcus,
    Our readers actually nominate the characters they want in the tournament. So subscribe to our blog via email or follow us on twitter and we'll keep you updated on when the next nominations will be!

  55. I probably sound so stupid saying this, but I'm new to this site, so can someone please tell me how to vote?! I'm desparately longing to vote for Katniss Everdeen from The Hunger Games!

  56. @Awesome Blog!,
    I know right?! Totally going to make sure Katniss wins the tournament!:)

  57. @MeBeJewel

    There are currently no live matches. If you'll look at the schedule up at the top, you'll see that we have matches on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday. Katniss's next match is on Wednesday I believe. We create a post for each match, and at the bottom of the match there is a poll that is open for 24 hours only. Feel free to look back over old matches, they should all be linked up.

  60. Hey, i was just looking at the background and saw a book i haven't read...
    I can't read title because its really small
    I think its called ~~~~ of Beautiful?
    Its a blondie looking down...

  61. @HiddenBrilliance

    The book is called North of Beautiful by Justina Chen Headley. It's Contemporary YA, and it is an AMAZING book. One of our favorites!

  62. I'm so glad Jace won the summer tournament. Now, I have to chose between Clary and Tessa!? Two of my favorite characters from my favorite series's (?) from my favorite author? You're killing me here! Ugh... Team... TESSA!

  63. SNAP! I'm defo gonna say TEAM CLARY. I mean c'mon! Green house scene? Jace? Yeah, I love the Infernal Devices, but I love the Mortal Instruments even more. TEAM CLARY!

  64. Hey sisters! I have a teeny question...What series of books do you recommend for me?! I currently finished reading the Hunger Games, Maximum Ride, twilight, and Harry Potter. (yes, I read them all at once)i'm into action, comedy, and a little bit of romance. I'm in desparate need for a new series.
    ~Jewel ;)

  65. I want a new series to read! I want everyone's opinion......... Thanks sisters! (but i'm 12, so just keep that in mind please)

  66. Where can we suggest guys for the Tournament? Please, please think about including Ren from Tiger's Curse. He is SOOOOO yummy. Thanks! Luv you gals!

  67. How about Astley from the Need series? He is totally swoon-worthy! Thanks sisterhood! These tournaments are oh-so-awesome ;)

  68. How about Astley from the Need series? He is SOOO swoon worthy <3 thanks sisterhood for this awesome tournament! I'll be vouching for Ash if Astley doesn't get in ;)

  69. this is related to last years Crush Tournament, the bracket from last year doesn't have a winner...i know it was Jace, but would it be possible to add his name just for clarity and easiness?
    sorry for the inconvenience.

  70. Heyy, love the tourney! But at the top it says Tessa won the heroine tourney... Didnt Clary win it?

  71. Why isn't Tamani from the wings series in this? I always thought he was the hottest guy in a series.

  72. Tod's not in this year? Nooo! *sobs hysterically*

  73. Dimitri and Daemon possibly going against each other again?! WHO DO I VOTE FOR I LOVE THEM BOTH SO MUCH!!!!!! :'(

  74. Don't know if anyone's noticed or said anything, but at the top, where it says all the winners, it says Tessa Gray was the winner of the 2011 YA Heroine Tourny, when it was actually Clary Fray... Just thought I'd point it out. x3
