We have our winners! I was a little surprised to see The Chrysalids not even make enough votes to go to the final after it got such strong shoutouts in the nomination process, but I even extended the poll an extra day because I don't like splits between "finals" and "lovely parting gifts" of only one or two votes, and during the grace period, it fell even further behind.
Personally, I was sad to see Girl With All the Gifts fall short as well, but that's more of a personal preference.
Semifinal round 2 will be up early next week.
