Hogwarts Back to School Week // SFF House Recommendations

September 1st has passed us by and here we are for yet another year at Hogwarts. This year I wanted to celebrate a little with these SFF House Recommendations.


gryffindor house recs

You might belong in Gryffindor,
Where dwell the brave at heart,
Their daring, nerve, and chivalry
Set Gryffindors apart

Kopie van Ontwerp zonder titelThe Bear and the Nightingale (Winternight 1) by Katherine Arden
Gryffindors will apreciate this for Vasya’s daring and impulsive decisions.

Kopie van Ontwerp zonder titelSorcerer to the Crown (Sorcerer Royal 1) by Zen Cho
Gryffindors will appreciate the mix of Gryffindor and Slytherin in Prunella who kicks against the establishment as a poc and a woman in this historical fantasy.

Kopie van Ontwerp zonder titelStronger Than a Bronze Dragon by Mary Fan
A last daring adventure for a girl who is being married off is perfect for romantic Gryffindors.

Kopie van Ontwerp zonder titelGraceling (Graceling Realm 1) by Kristin Cashore
An assasin who does the right thing is perfect for rightous Gryffindors.

Huffle Puff house recs

You might belong in Hufflepuff,
Where they are just and loyal,
Those patient Hufflepuffs are true,
And unafraid of toil.

Kopie van Ontwerp zonder titelThe Long Way to a Small, Angry Planet (Wayfarers 1) by Becky Chambers
Nothing is more perfect than a crew of misfits that are loyal to one another to a Hufflepuff.

Kopie van Ontwerp zonder titel The Tea Dragon Festival by Katie O’Neill
Entirely soft and inclusive as Hufflepuffs are.

Kopie van Ontwerp zonder titelPercy Jackson and the Olympians by Rick Riordan
Some adventure and heart warming humor for our Hufflepuffs.

Kopie van Ontwerp zonder titelThe Trials of Morrigan Crow (Nevermoor 1) by Jessica Townsends
More adventure and discovering a new world alongside a girl who inspires loyalty.

ravenclaw house recs

Or yet in wise old Ravenclaw,
If you’ve a ready mind,
Where those of wit and learning,
Will always find their kind.

Kopie van Ontwerp zonder titelSpinning Silver by Naomi Novik
I think the way Miryem deals with the money lenders and Fae is something a ravenclaw can appreciate.

Kopie van Ontwerp zonder titel The Ocean at the End of the Lane by Neil Gaiman
A nostalgic read towards childhood and questioning whether or not something is real or fantasy seems perfect for the Ravenclaw mind.

Kopie van Ontwerp zonder titelWitchmark (Kingston Cycle 1) by C.L. Polk
There is something about Miles that makes me feel that he has a bit of a ravenclaw in him (but with dashes of hufflepuff for sure). I think figuring out the mystery would appeal to ravenclaws as well.

Kopie van Ontwerp zonder titel The Outside by Ada Hoffmann
Some Sci-Fi and Gods with a second half of this book perfect for Ravenclaw minds to mull over.

Slytherin house recs

Or perhaps in Slytherin,
You’ll make your real friends,
Those cunning folk use any means,
To achieve their ends.

Kopie van Ontwerp zonder titelBones and Bourbon by Dorian Graves
The demon in this book is all slytherin all the way and it will be appreciated.

Kopie van Ontwerp zonder titelRevenger (Revenger 1) by Alastair Reynolds
The revenge plot of this book will draw in most slytherins, especially when a goody-two-shoes turns out to be quite cunning…

Kopie van Ontwerp zonder titel The Gilded Cage (Dark Gifts 1) by Vic James
Who are good and who are bad, truly?

Kopie van Ontwerp zonder titel The Magicians by Lev Grossman
The jaded feel of the characters who do some morally questionable things but who still stick together will probably appeal to most slytherins.

  1. I don’t necessarily have a big Potter knowledge, but most of these recs sound amazing! I have read Wayfarers 1 and loved it, and Percy Jackson has made Riordan a favorite writer of mine years ago! The Bear and the Nightingale, Spinning Silver and Nevermoor are books already on my shelves waiting to be read 🙂
