I came up with the idea to sort books into Hogwart houses a few weeks ago. I asked on Instagram for some help! Everyone provided great answers for this post, so I’d like to say a huge thank you to those who joined in! I’ve always loved Harry Potter and the housing system, so I wondered if I could combine my favourite reads and Harry Potter together. As I can’t be the only one who has a lot of pride for their house? (All my Gryffindors, where you at?)
One of the first of many suggestions! I love this series and I definitely can agree by placing it into gryffindor! The characters are so brave, I mean Percy is the son of Poseidon, pressure much? They all have duties and prophecies to achieve and do so with courage and bravery.
These kids literally grow up way too fast as they face dangers in Narnia. Other than the fact that there is a lion, which is the symbol of gryffindor, all of four of them have a lot of courage. Apparently, JK Rowling got inspiration for the Hogwart Houses by reading Narnia. Peter a gryffindor, Susan a ravenclaw, Edmund a slytherin and Lucy a hufflepuff.
Throne Of Glass
I’d say this is a mix of both Gryffindor and Slytherin! Aelin is so resourceful and has great ambition to achieve her dreams and to prove others wrong. She does so with bravery as she tries to keep her real identity hidden from everyone at the castle.
The Seven Husbands Of Evelyn Hugo
The book cover is green, it states in the blurb that Evelyn “unspools a tale of ruthless ambition”. Must I say more? Evelyn tells her story as she recounts a journey that has readers mesmerised. I’m always down for a historical fiction!
Bilbo does live a peaceful, quiet life before he is disturbed! He is always kind and loyal to others and has offered a hand to help company escape. He always wants to keep peace between others and has shown that when they all come across humans!
Eleanor and Park
These two are so sweet and the book will warm your heart. It speaks about the hardships of life along with the cute, fluffy relationship and it makes the story more real and honest. It’s not a 5 star read, but the storyline isn’t bad.
The Raven Boys
A quest full of riddles, mysteries and clues definitely seems like a Ravenclaw to me! Although everyone in the gang would be in a different house, Maggie Stiefvater has made a book full of creativity and wit. Gansey is ravenclaw, a scholar. Adam is a cunning planner and has the ambition to get where he wants to be. Ronan is always honest and cares deeply for his friends so would be a Hufflepuff. Noah and Blue are both gryffindors. Blue is hot-headed, brave and can be confrontational whilst Noah is an unlikely hero but is brave when it is needed.
A girl who knows how powerful knowledge can be and teaches herself purely because she loves learning and is always so curious. That is basically a ravenclaw summed up and Matilda is no exception. Except she’s way cooler and can move objects by using her brain. I think we all can admit that we’ve been there, tried it and failed miserably.
Now that’s a wrap! I had so much fun writing this post and asking for everyone’s opinion! If you want to be involved with some future posts, follow my Instagram as I often ask for everyone’s thoughts! Let me know if you agree with these books being in a specific Hogwarts House and if not I want to know your reasoning! Let’s start a good book discussion! Or check out my last post here!
