Let There Be Fighting: YA Fantasy Showdown!

OK, so you guys know the super-awesome-amazing Heather? She had a great idea a while ago. In celebration of MOCKINGJAY, the most anticipated book of the summer, Heather has created an entire website where she's pitting all the best YA fantasy characters against each other in a giant arena (sound familiar?) and YOU get to vote on who makes it on to the next round in the ultimate showdown against Katniss herself!!

Look, guys, I've had a sneak peek of this awesome Seriously. The official website of the showdown is here, and it will go live on August 10th.

And speaking of things going live on August 10th...there's going to be an announcement of a contest HERE, tomorrow. And it DOES involve Mockingjay...and it involves something else.


Official Announcement

Something is going down. Something big.

How would you like to see Edward duke it out against Hermione? Or Katniss and Katsa? Well, guess what? You can, in the first ever YA Fantasy Showdown. In celebration of Suzanne Collin’s final book in the Hunger Games trilogy, a group of bloggers are pitting some of the best-known characters in YA in the ultimate showdown. And you get to pick the winner.

That’s right. You read the battles, evaluate the characters, and vote for who has the honor of moving on to the next round. It’s a tournament like you’ve never seen before (because there’s more). The authors have been asked to participate and advocate their character in writing their own version of the battle. It’s going to be truly epic. Or at least a good way to pass the time until Mockingjay comes out. It all goes down August 10th.

Yay! Something to keep me occupied until the book arrives on my doorstep and I go missing for, oh, twelve hours at most?

Love the showdown. The characters, while I don't know them all, are interesting and amazing fighters. Go Katniss!
