The Sorting Hat

I decided I’d have a bit of fun today and pull out my wand and owl for some Harry Potter-related madness.

I’ve had this post written for a very long time, but am only finally posting it. Maybe because I realise I’m probably not a very good Sorting Hat (it’s actually extremely nerve-wracking!), and the actual Sorting Hat can keep its job. It won’t be replaced easily anyway!

Let’s get started!


First up is Gryffindor and with all her spy work Cammie Morgan will be kicking ass all the way to the common rooms. I can also imagine her as an amazing Quidditch player, right?

– The Gallagher Girls books by Ally Carter

Whilst Celaena might be on the verge of Slytherin (boo!), she does have some good in her and is incredibly brave so I’m sure she’ll be in Gryffindor.

– Throne of Glass by Sarah J. Maas

Kit Blackthorn is very action-driven and proud, which I think makes her a perfect Gryffindor match.

– Banished by Liz de Jager


Then we have Ravenclaw, the best of the houses, if I do say so myself.

Harriet Manners is perhaps one of my favourite geeky characters and would always be able to guess the password to enter Ravenclaw Tower.

– Geek Girl by Holly Smale

Lilly Moscovitz, I think, would take over from Hermione and run S.P.E.W. It would be awesome!

– The Princess Diaries by Meg Cabot

Most likely found in the library, I think Cather Avery would be one of the quiet Ravenclaws, not as self-assured and pompous as some of the others can be.

– Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell


Hufflepuffs! The second best of all the houses, not that they care!

Levi Stewart, who I’m sure I’ve talked about enough of this blog, would definitely be Hufflepuff. He epitomises Hufflepuff, and I don’t even need to think twice about it.

Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell

I absolutely love Kenji Kishimoto and he is just such a loveable person. Hufflepuff, definitely!

– Shatter Me by Tahereh Mafi


Slytherin, home to the absolutely gorgeous Draco Malfoy. I just love him, okay?

Warner would definitely be Slytherin. An irresistible Slytherin. Need I say any more?

– Shatter Me by Tahereh Mafi

I think it’s obviously that Cersei Lannister would be a Death Eater Slytherin. I don’t want to hate on Slytherin and say they’re all Death Eaters, but Cersei Lannister would be the exception. EVIL!

– A Song of Ice and Fire by George R. R. Martin

Mara Dyer just fits into Slytherin in my mind. She’s not exactly what I’d call a good person, but I really like her nevertheless.

Which Hogwarts house are you in? Which house would your favourite book character be in?

    LOVE THIS! LOVE THIS, LOVE THIS, LOVE THIS! – You are one awesome person Lucy!

    According to Pottermore, I’m a Ravenclaw which I I’m incredibly happy about and over the past few years have probably bought more Ravenclaw merchandise than I can afford.
    Couldn’t agree more with Cath, Levi and Harriet’s sorting – I don’t know anyone else!
    Unfortunately I can’t really answer that second question because my favourite fictional character is Hermione Granger, but oh well 🙂

    This is amazing Lucy – one of my favourite posts of yours! 🙂

    I agree about Celaena! I think she’d be in Harry’s position and then whisper to the hat about wanting to be in Gryffindor and not Slytherin.

    I haven’t read many of the others but YES ABOUT CERSEI. She has barely any redeemable aspects… in fact, the only positive thing about her is that she loves her children dearly. But, other than that, she’s definitely cunning and sly enough to be a Slytherin.

    I think I’m a Ravenclaw – although I only decided that recently (I’d been flicking between Hufflepuff and Gryffindor before). As for my favourite character, I don’t have one but I’ll go with some GoT characters:

    Jon Snow: Gryffindor.
    Tyrion and Sansa: Ravenclaw.
    Brienne and Samwell: Hufflepuff.
    Little Finger: Slytherin

    And Joffrey: muggle or squib.

    This was such a wonderful post – and so on point with all the characters and what houses they would be in! I especially think you did a great job with Celaena in Gryffindor (My fav character and the house I was sorted in!) and Warner in Slytherin (another fav. character) as well as Cersei in Slytherin had me lol’ing (she would seriously be a death eater).

    I love this post!! Unfortunately, I haven’t read a lot of the books these characters are in so some of it lost on me:P My all time favorite book character is Ponyboy Curtis from The Outsiders, and he might be a Hufflepuff? Because he’s very kind and..uh…wow this is hard heh. Anyway, this was such a fun idea! ^.^

    I love that you put Mara in Slytherin because even though she is the heroine, let’s face it, it’s the only house that makes sense for her and all of her craziness.

    Warner, though . . . does he have to go to Hogwarts? Can’t we send him far, far away to Azkaban or something?

    This is awesome! Definitely agree with Harriet and Lilly, they are classic Ravenclaws. According to Pottermore, I’m a Ravenclaw, so I’m in good company 😀

    I love this! Definitely agree with Lilly Moscowitz 🙂 I just finished reading Paper Aeroplanes and I think Renee would be a Gryffindor and Flo would be a Ravenclaw. I am a Ravenpuff for life!
