Friday in Review: YA Books as Hogwarts Houses

Happy Friday! Hallelujah for that! This week has been physically and mentally exhausting for me. I was up and out the door by 7:45 every morning and didn't get back till almost 4 every evening since I've been helping with the huge VBS camp thing my church does. There were fun moments and sweet times getting to watch the littlest ones and honestly it reminded me how much I missed when my little brothers were, well, littler and liked to snuggle and had loveys and all that fun stuff. But... I am so tired. Hence the small, simple post today. I wanted to put something bookish up today but I definitely do not have the mental capacity to write a book review. So instead, I give you my sorting of YA books as Hogwarts Houses. Please don't judge my sorting skills. I'm doing this while being super tired and possibly not thinking totally straight. But if anything I hope this post is fun and makes you smile. Let me know in the comments what books you would sort into each house.

Slytherin: For some reason this one seems easiest for me. I guess I read a lot of slytherin books? #slytherpuffproblems 

The Cruel Prince by Holly Black for sure 

Vicious and Vengeful by V. E. Schwab  (or you know, pretty much anything Victoria Schwab writes cus her and her books are as Slytherin as they come) 

Hufflepuff Weirdly enough this one was hard for me even though I am Hufflepuff. But like I said, I read a lot of Slytherin-ish books. But I chose these for their deep meanings and beautiful, hopeful themes. 

Fawkes Nadine Brandes 

Caraval by Stephanie Garber 

Ravenclaw This one was also rather easy... I chose these for their complex plots. The Gilded Wolves especially with its complicated plot and booksmart, super smart in general characters 

The Gilded Wolves by Roshani Chokshi 

Stain by A. G. Howard 

Gryffindor and no surprise here, I don't read a whole lot of Gryffindor-ish books so if you think these are totally wrong let me know and recommend some epic books for epic Gryffindors. I chose these for their action filled plots and brave, courageous MC's 

The Hunger Games Suzanne Collins 

The Lunar Chronicles by Marissa Meyer 

Sooo yeah, let me know how I did in the comments and feel free to sort some YA books too. I'd love to hear what books you would sort into each house. Have a great weekend everyone. I will be spending this weekend recuperating, writing and reading and resting.


  1. Ah, what a fun idea! I love the gryffindor books ;)

    1. Thanks! It was a fun, quick little post to do! :)

  2. Whoa! This is such an awesome idea! My color oriented mind just wants to match each color to the correct Hogwarts houses, but those do not make sense. Great picks for each one! I've only read The Lunar Chronicles, but I agree, it is definitely Gryffindor. :)

    1. Thank you! I love that idea actually. I'll have to save that away for a later post color coordinate the books by house. Glad you think I did a good job matching books and houses, I was worried I would get some of them wrong haha

  3. This was really interesting! Most of these books I haven't read, so I honestly can't say if they're accurate or not.
    But this list certainly gives me some ideas for more books to read!

Happy New Years!!

Happy New Years everyone! 2019 is officially here! Some parts of last year felt like they went by so slowly while other parts feel like they were a blur. But overall, 2018 was a good year and I have a feeling 2019 will be a good year too. 2019 is a new season of life for me and others and I'm so excited to see what God has planned for myself, friends and family.

I know I've already posted my goals for 2019 but there are a few more I want to add. Since writing the Looking Forward to 2019 post, I had a few epiphanies that I think are important.

First of all, one of the authors I follow on Instagram wrote a post today about the difference between dreams and goals. Goals are achievable. They can be accomplished. Dreams can be too, but sometimes certain dreams are out of our control and when we fail to accomplish that dream, we fail. She said how she really wanted to sell a book in 2019. To pitch a book to her agent and get it out there. But that's not a goal. That's a drea…

January 2019 Wrap-Up

Wow! The first month of the year is nearly over! I can't believe it's almost already February. Just one more month and it'll be my birthday!

With the end of January, I'm really starting to think about what I want to do this year, mostly concerning this blog and my writing and stuff. I want to change some things blogger-wise and grow my audience, though I'm still trying to brainstorm and figure out the best ways to do that. There are just a lot of thoughts and ideas floating around in my head right now that are hard to organize and put down on paper (or type out on keyboard), but I'm sure with all these ideas and thoughts, there will come lots more blog posts. So instead of trying to organize my messy thoughts right now, I think I'll just do my wrap-up same as usual.

January Writing: This month's writing has been good. December was a hard month for me. I was super burnt out and blocked in everything I did. Writing three different versions of my Peter Pan …

Friday in Review: Fictional Vacation/Would you Rather

Happy Friday! So, they awesome Lily Cat tagged me in this fictional vacation/would you rather challenge and I am so excited to do this. It sounds so fun!

Alright so here's the deal:

~ Include the graphic Madeline made.
~ Answer the Questions 
~ Tag some other people if you feel so inclined
Let's jump right into this! 
Would you rather... 
Train with demigods for the summer at Camp Halfblood OR attend Hogwarts to learn some spells for a semester?
How is this even a question? ;) Camp Halfblood of course! I adore the Percy Jackson series, so I would do just about anything to be a halfblood for the Summer. The real question is, who would my parent be?? My enneagram four side who loves being special and different wants me to be a kid of one of the big three... maybe Hades just to make myself extra special and unique from everyone else ;) But most likely I'd end up being like a Posiedon kid... or if we're being real probably Apollo cuz I'm a writer and all that, even though …
