Sorting YA Protagonists into Hogwarts Houses \\ Katniss Everdeen = Slytherin or Gryffindor?


Hello Book Ravens!

Every Wednesday I put up a poll on my Instagram and you all get to help decide what my Wednesday post will be. This week we decided on sorting YA characters into Hogwarts houses!

This sounds like so much fun: I chose to stick with the theme of YA protagonists. Some of these were suggested by people on Instagram, and some are my personal favorites. (hint: if you want to participate too, my Instagram is here)

Let’s sort:

My first instinct is Slytherin, and I don’t think I’m too far off. She’s cunning, determined and even a bit heartless at times. And she does what’s necessary.

Plus she’s fiercely devoted to certain people – once they’ve gained her trust, that is. Which you can see with Peeta and Haymitch, and that definitely seems like a Slytherin trait to me.

Final Verdict: Slytherin

Emika from Warcross...Gryffindor is what I immediately want to say since she’s brave, devoted to her friends and determined. But considering how she grew up – and how she plays the system – I actually think she’s very much like a Ravenclaw. She’s really too smart for her own good.

Final Verdict: Ravenclaw…? (opinions?)

This isn’t the actress playing her…but doesn’t she look so canon??

Possibly the most frustrating yet lovable character I’ve ever read…She’s not a Hufflepuff, that’s for sure. And she’s too nice to be a true Slytherin. 

I’d hate to look down on my own house, but she’s a total Gryffindor. Doesn’t think, is brave, prefers action over thought…yeah, this isn’t a hard one.

Final Verdict: Gryffindor

Molly from The Upside of Unrequited…this isn’t a hard one, mainly because the reason she annoyed me so much is literally the defining features of a certain house (sorry Molly…). She even fits the stereotypes and everything!

Final Verdict: Hufflepuff

She’s very dedicated to her crew, and to her mission. She’s also pretty cut-throat, and really only cares for a few people…I’m really stuck between Slytherin and Ravenclaw.

I mean, she has the “evil” stereotype down, but could that simply be because she was raised as a pirate? She’s smart and cunning but really only aims for herself and her crew-

-what am I even trying to type?? Her house is so obvious!

Final Verdict: Slytherin


Let me know your favorite character and what house you think they’d be in!

This was a lot of fun, and I really want to do another one of these soon. Maybe a sidekick-themed one next time? Or maybe even villains? *evil laugh*


Have a delightfully thoughtful day, Book Ravens ❥

  1. What book is America from? I love that pic!

    I disagree about Alosa. I think she would very much be Gryffindor! I think the is incredibly brave and selfless. Yes she can be brutal, but she would always prefer to preserve life and doesn’t like killing, she just does what she must! Like when she releases the younger captives against her dad’s wishes because she knows they aren’t bad and have a lot of life ahead of them! A Slytherin wouldn’t have spared anyone!

    1. America is from The Selection series by Kiera Cass! It’s a good trilogy, although, like I said, she’s frustrating at times 😅

      Do you really think she’s more of a Gryffindor? Looking back on it I can totally see what you’re saying, though I’ve only read the first book. So maybe she becomes even more Gryffindor-like in the second 🤔

      1. Oooh, I have read The Selection series, I just didn’t make the connection! And yes she can be frustrating haha.

        And yea, I do think she would be Gryffindor, but I think she wouldn’t be misplaced in Slytherin either. I think she fits into both, but I would put her in Gryffindor 😀
