Classic Must-Reads Based on Your Hogwarts House

Want to feel a little house pride as we celebrate the twentieth birthday of the Harry Potter series?

Grab one of these classic books (old and new), step into your common room with these Ambient-Mixer vibes in your earbuds, and embrace your house values.

Gryffindor: 

“You might belong in Gryffindor where dwell the brave at heart. Their daring nerve and chivalry set Gryffindors apart.”

By

Gryffindors don’t need much more than the power of one.

By

The count was for sure a Gryffindor. Think you can take him down? Nope! He’ll just come back like a boss . . . in a cape, no less.

By

Those Dauntless have the bravery thing down pat.

Unbroken (The Young Adult Adaptation)

Unbroken (The Young Adult Adaptation)

By Laura Hillenbrand

The loyalty and iron will of a Gryffindor shall forever remain unbroken.

Hufflepuff :

“You might belong in Hufflepuff, where they are just and loyal, those patient Hufflepuffs are true, and unafraid of toil.”

By

Hufflepuffs don’t need to be told how to make friends. It just comes naturally. But they might find this book interesting nonetheless.

Anne of Green Gables

Anne of Green Gables

By Jennifer Lee Carroll

Our girl Anne is basically the poster child for team Hufflepuff. As she would say, “Kindred spirits are not so scarce as I used to think.”

By

With its core messages of hope, love, kindness, and good ‘ole fashion hard work, any Hufflepuff can relate to this classic series.

By

Peeta = Hufflepuff. Enough said.

Ravenclaw:

“Or yet in wise old Ravenclaw, if you’ve a ready mind, where those of wit and learning, will always find their kind.”

By

No punctuation? No problem. Ravenclaws can handle it.  After all, “Wit beyond measure is man’s greatest treasure!”

By

We found the lost diadem of Ravenclaw . . . on the cover of Red Queen.

By

Ravenclaws don’t need to prove how smart they are, but being spotted reading this seven-volume oldie would really seal the deal.

By

These smarty-smarts read all the classics, including that one Shakespeare play you’ve never heard of.

Slytherin:

 “Or perhaps in Slytherin, you’ll make your real friends, these cunning folks use any means, to achieve their ends.”

By

Watch your back . . . Slytherins know all about this subject.

By

A little light reading so your enemies know what’s up, perhaps?

By

Gotta read up on Merlin—he’s a famous Slytherin, after all!

By

Sometimes Slytherins can feel a little misunderstood, just like the poor monster Frankenstein created that one time. He said it first: “Beware; for I am fearless, and therefore powerful.”

    The Power of One is one of the best books I’ve ever read, and one of the most compelling and heart wrenching stories! I love Peekay!
