It was an amazing Elite 8 round for Booketology! Jane Marple fell to Huck Finn in the battle between Mystery and Classics. In an upset, Princess Buttercup defeated Batman! Jane Austen’s heroine Elizabeth Bennet proved that you don’t have to be a revolutionary to be a champion, easily defeating the Hunger Games tribute Katniss Everdeen. And it was the ultimate showdown between science and magic, and magic won by a landslide! Harry Potter took the round against Marie Curie, with a 70 vote margin.
