There are so many! I read most of the books I love many times. Recently I read The Host for the third time or so and still enjoyed it.

I'm a mix of Gryffindor and Slytherin. All of my friends say this and the more I think about it, it's true! I usually take things heads on (even if I regret it later, lol)

Christine said...

I'd totally be in Ravenclaw. Not only do you get to answer cool riddles instead of give a password, their color is purple, which is awesome, and Luna is in Ravenclaw. We'd be best friends.

A muggle computer programme (LOL!) sorted me into Ravenclaw many years ago, and I've been happy with that result ever since. I think I'm pretty brainy, with the trade-off being that I'm not always the most practical person in the world.

Remember the short bit in the first book (if I remember correctly) where Hermione is asked by a Ravenclaw why she was sorted into Gryffindor when she seems like one of his house? I'd probably be that Ravenclaw. LOL!

Yiota said...

I think it would be Gryffindor or Hufflepuff. I don't really fit only in one house :/ But since i'm really into friendship, patience i think that will win Gryffindor. BUT i want Gryffindor. I think i like for friends more ppl that fit into Gryffindor and i would love to be with them all the time!

vickyvak said...

I don't know in which house I would like to be shorted into because they all have their prons and cons but a quiz I had taken sorted me into Gryffindor so I guess that's the best house for me!

April X said...

I've been sorted into Ravenclaw on this one quiz I took, but I think I'm more Hufflepuff. Don't think I got the brains to be in Ravenclaw lol. Thanks for another SHS :)

ako4eggs said...

I would probably be Gryffindor or slytherin. I guess I have a lot of courage, but I can be very cunning!

Kulsuma said...

I would like to be in either Ravenclaw or Gryffindor because I think I am somewhat 'brave' and 'corageous'. I see Reading Tween is sporting the Gryffindor colours!:)

*Jam* said...

I'd want to be sorted into Hufflepuff because it doesn't matter if you're strong or clever if you don't play fair! =)

sablelexi said...

I'd probably be Ravenclaw because I always loved knowing the right answer and solving riddles. My favorite video game is Professor Layton, full of riddles.

I'm in HufflePuff because friendship is big to me :D


.Ambur. said...

I'd want to be in either Gryffindor or Ravenclaw. Gryffindor because who doesn't want to be brave and courageous, and there's also the plus that you'd get to hang out with Harry Potter :P lol
Ravenclaw because I like to think I'm intelligent and clever :)

Thanks for the Secondhand Saturday :)


Aleksandra said...

I've taken a lot of tests & quizes & I'm always sorted in Gryffindor, so I guess I'll probably be in Gryffindor :)

Dovile said...

I'd be definitely sorted into Ravenclaw. I'm really not brave enough to be a Gryffindor or mean enough to be a Slytherin, and too nerdy anyway to be a Hufflepuff:)

Scoot said...

I am a total Huffelpuff. I have taken many a 'sorting' quiz and always end up Huffelpuff!! I guess I am just loyal, patient and kind. Not to mention, yellow is a good color on me. *wink*

Thanks! seescootread[at]gmail[dot]com

Elise said...

Ravenclaw because I consider myself a smart and clever person. I would fit right in.
