Fantastic Beasts & Where to Find Them


One thing that always made me scared to read fantasy? The magical creatures! I don't know why, but that was one reason I hesitated to try the genre. I didn't think I would be able to visualize make-believe creatures. And trust me, there are creatures galore in fantasy. Thankfully, I've found that I actually enjoy seeing what authors will come up with next! So today, Alexa and I are talking about this fantasy staple.

What magical creature is your favorite?

WYVERYN | I fell in love with Abraxos in Heir of Fire, and then the wyvern in the Fairyland series sealed the deal. This winged creature with a dragon's head and wings, a reptilians body, legs and a tail is fierce and absolutely ferocious. But as I found in some of the books that I've read, they can be fearless and so loyal. They've quickly become my favorite - and most memorable - creature! (My Review)

What magical creature would you most like to be?

MERMAID | I'd absolutely want to be a mermaid. As a kid, I spent a lot of time pretending to be one in the pool. It was one of my favorite games! They call the ocean their home, and I'd move to the beach in a heartbeat. I get to keep a human upper body (yes, please) and have long, flowing hair. And sometimes mermaids are mean... I could totally channel that attitude. But I don't think I've read any mermaid books!

What magical creature would you like to own?

HIPPOGRIFF | This eagle and horse combo was created in Harry Potter, of course. I love that there is a proper way to approach a hippogriff, and since it involves bowing, I think it's pretty obvious hippogriffs are refined and courteous creatures. I can't lie - I also love that they fly! They're loyal and protective if you earn their trust, which I totally would. I spoil my puppy, and I'm sure I'd do the same with my hippogriff. And doesn't Hannah and Her Hippogriff sound like a children's book?

  2. Owning a Hipogriff would certainly be super cool! I would love to have one as well. Plus, they can be pretty loyal.

  3. I just love this post! Wyverns are totally awesome creatures, and I'm overly fond of both Abraxos and our dear Wyverary. But hippogriffs are cool too, and I wouldn't mind knowing one. Mermaids, on the other hand, well, I played that mermaid game as a child all the time too! I haven't read a lot of mermaid books either, but one I do remember enjoying was Midnight Pearls.
