The Monday Poll: What Creature from The Hobbit Would You Want To Be?

hobbit_smaug_movie_posterGood morning, Hub readers!

Last week, we wanted to know which quest from YA literature you’d want to be a part of. Harry, Hermione, and Ron’s search for the horcruxes from J.K. Rowling’s Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows came in first with 38% of the vote, followed by the quest to find Glendower from The Raven Boys by Maggie Stiefvater with 19%. The quest for Smaug’s treasure from J.R.R. Tolkien’s The Hobbit was third with 15% of the vote. You can see detailed results for all of our previous polls in the Polls Archive. Thanks very much to all of you who voted!

This week, to celebrate the theatrical release of The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug, we’re asking which Hobbit creature you’d like to be. Tolkien created a rich and varied world in Middle Earth, populated by fascinating beings. Vote in the poll below, and be sure to leave a comment if we’ve missed your favorite!
