Fantasy Who Would Win?

Fantasy Books FestivalWho would win in a fight between your favorite fantasy characters?

I know what MY favorite thing about fantasy books is: fantasy books often have the most exciting, epic, earth-shattering battles. In worlds where anything is possible, magical creatures, logic-defying supernatural abilities, and even nature itself can turn any old argument into a knock-down, drag-out fight to save the universe. It’s so exciting!

Fight scenes in fantasy books always leave me wondering what I would do if I had the abilities or strengths that the characters have. Would I try to save the world, too? Or would I go on silly adventures instead? Probably a little bit of both!

Today’s Fantasy Books Festival post is all about special abilities. Everyone loves a good collision of fantasy universes, so do a little imagining yourself: who would win in a fight between these fictional characters?

Who are your winners? Why? What are your suggestions for fantasy face-offs? Share in the Comments below!

Till next time,

FIFA World Cup Brazil 2014Who will win the 2014 World Cup?

I am completely obsessed with the 2014 World Cup tournament in Brazil. There are so many amazing teams playing that I don’t want to miss a single game! While you might not actually see both of these competitors in Brazil, what do you think of today’s match-up? Team Kitten vs. Arjen Robben from Team Holland!

Kitten vs. Arjen RobbenAre you loving the World Cup this year, or do you love kittens more? Which team do you support, and who will be the 2014 champions? Leave your World Cup predictions in the Comments!

Unbearable Cuteness Contest

V04-1482134Who Would Win?

When I was 5 years old, my father took me to the American Museum of Natural History in New York and I saw elephants close up for the first time. I had never seen anything more beautiful in my whole 5-year life! I even told my grandmother I couldn’t wait until I had elephant skin like hers. (I thought that was the nicest compliment, but she thought it was hilariously funny. Go figure!)

Ever since then, elephants have been my favorite wild animal, so I know my pick for today’s Who Would Win. How about you? Which animal do you think would win the unbearable cuteness contest: baby elephant or baby panda?
