What Your Favorite Harry Potter Book Reveals About You

Ready to feel old? Today marks 20 years since the first Harry Potter book hit shelves and the name J.K. Rowling entered our hearts for always. 

While every true fan loves each book in its own way, we all know that one of the adventures stands out from the rest.

Scroll below to find out what your favorite Harry Potter book reveals about your personality:

The Sorcerer's Stone 

If the first book of the series is still your favorite, then you're a hopeless romantic. You love all things nostalgia and enjoy reminiscing on old memories because they feel like home. While you can't get enough of this wizarding world, you have to admit that you preferred things back in the good ol' days when life was a little more simple. He-Who-Must-Not-Be-Named may be stirring in the background, but for now the students of Hogwarts have little more to worry about than doing well on exams and getting a feel for the school grounds. You love experiencing firsts which is why the first glimpses of magic, wizarding candy and Hogwarts constantly take your breath away and replace it with giddy excitement. In this book, your horizons are endless.

The Chamber of Secrets

While it's an unpopular opinion, you can't help but reread the second book of the series yearly. You don't really care that very few people claim the Chamber of Secrets as their No. 1 because you're an individual and, to be honest, you're probably used to standing out based on your favorite things (Bertie Botts, anyone?). This book is rich with mystery and you love a good challenge—whether it's discovering the secret that lies within Hogwarts or breaking into the heart of Gilderoy Lockhart. You may even relate to Moaning Myrtle and consider this book your bathroom that you know like the back of your hand.

The Prisoner of Azkaban

This is your favorite HP book of the series because ominous workings are at foot. You probably fancy yourself a reader of signs, looking for clues around you as to the right course of action or glaring warning signs. Because of this mystic personality, you relate to Professor Trelawney—your hands down fave professor at Hogwarts—and enjoy dipping into a different kind of magic. Magic is deeply important to all aspects of your life, we both know you rely heavily on the zodiac, so the new magical elements in this book are thrilling to you. Dementors, werewolves, the Time Turner, the reveal of Scabbers?? This book pushes the boundaries of what we consider witchcraft and brings mystical elements into a more historical context.

The Goblet of Fire

My competitive people, we both know that this book is your favorite because of the friendly (or at times, not so) competition. You love a good game and what could possibly be more exciting than the Tri-Wizard Tournament. One of the most important parts of this tournament is bringing students from other schools together and making new friends—one thing that you just love about sports. Where there's rivalry there's a chance to become stronger and you're always working to better yourself. You may be competitive by nature but you also value good sportsmanship which is why you get all choked up when the champions help each other during the games. Basically this book is never-ending Quidditch game level excitement.

The Order of the Phoenix

When it comes to endeavors, you live by the motto that two heads are better than one. Well, in this case, many heads. You love the way teamwork comes into play in this novel in the name of resistance. You're an action taker and will always be found at organized meetings to plan and strategize the next move. We're also guessing that you've been sorted into the Hufflepuff house because loyalty is a huge theme in this book. Since you are always one to stand up for your friends you know that evil can come in all shapes and sizes… and colors. Dolores Umbridge may just be your favorite villain of the wizarding world because she flaunts herself as prim and proper. But as any good truth-seeker knows, it's the evil hiding in plain sight that you have to exercise the most caution towards.

The Half Blood Prince

If the Half Blood Prince is your favorite book, it's because you feel a little misunderstood. Because of people's frequently incorrect assumptions of you, you love to investigate and dig deep until you find someone or something's true meaning. This book is heavy on backstory and you can't stop turning the page to find out more details about the lives of Harry's parents, and of course, Professor Snape. You've always had a soft spot for this Hogwarts teacher—in fact, there was never a doubt in your mind that he was true to the side of good. This book is hard to read because it really shows the kind of sacrifices Snape made in the name of love, but that's in part why it's closest to your heart.

The Deathly Hallows

The Dealthy Hallows is unlike any other book in the series… which is exactly why it's the top of your list. You like things that are new because that always makes them more exciting. When it comes to entertainment, you're looking for action above all else. What can you say? You just love to expand your horizons and have new experiences. In this book we see our beloved characters battling in the real world and that means that they aren't playing by the rules any longer. You've always fancied yourself a member of Dumbledore's Army and while we lose many of our favorite characters in this novel, you wish you could hop inside this book and fight against evil. It's what all of the other books have been leading up to, and you're ready to show off your skills. It's safe to say you're never one for sitting on the sidelines.
