All Harry Potter fans have daydreamed about their moment with the Sorting Hat. Though we’ll never find out for sure if we really belong in Gryffindor, Ravenclaw, Slytherin or Hufflepuff, you’ve probably been settled into your house of choice for a while. This handy list recommends some books we know you’ll love based on your house!
Rites of Passage by Joy N. Hensley
Snow Like Ashes by Sarah Raasch
Howl’s Moving Castle by Diana Wynne Jones
This list is for all of the adventure seekers out there. Like Harry and his friends, the characters in these books take on new challenges and face their opponents with courage and determination. Nothing can stop these brave heroes from what they know they must do. No mountain is too high or obstacle too terrifying. They’ll do what they must, save who they can, and do it all with stone-cold courage, just like a true Gryffindor.
Partials by Dan Wells
Paper Towns by John Green
Colin Fischer by Ashley Edward Miller and Zack Stentz
Ravenclaws are best known for their wit and cleverness, as are the characters in these thrilling novels. These books are all about solving a mystery and putting together the pieces of the puzzle in the way only a Ravenclaw could. Whether it’s a simple school mystery or the fate of all of humanity at stake, these bright characters are up to the task. Just give them a couple of clues and watch the magic happen.
The Demon King by Cinda Williams Chima
Since You’ve Been Gone by Morgan Matson
I’ll Give You the Sun by Jandy Nelson
There’s an unfortunate stigma attached to the Hufflepuff house. Some people think they’re just the leftovers who don’t have a place anywhere else, but that’s just silly. Hufflepuffs are loyal, and true loyalty is hard to come by. These books all about sticking to those you love and defending them fiercely and always. There’s love, and sometimes betrayal, but in the end, that Hufflepuff loyalty shines through and conquers all.
Vampire Academy by Richelle Mead
The Young Elites by Marie Lu
Croak Gina Damico
Let’s face it–when most people think Slytherin, they think evil. But there’s a lot more to a Slytherin than just the bad guys. A Slytherin is cunning and determined, and the protagonists of these stories share that mentality. They’re not just brave and smart, but ready to do whatever it takes to achieve their goals. Either stay out of the way or be prepared to help these heroes fight the good (or bad) fight because it’s going down one way or another.
