My Pottermore Sortings

I am a huge Harry Potter fan so, when I saw a post about Pottermore sorting on The Little Contemporary Corner I just had to write a similar post.  I’m not sure who wrote the original post, but thank you to whoever you are.  Pottermore is a website created by J.K. Rowling relating to Harry Potter and his world.

The moment I started reading Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone I was hooked.  I read the first book in one sitting.  For full disclosure I did not start reading the series until  <a href=”http://Harry Potter And The Goblet Of Fire“>Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire was released.  But, I did read all four books in less than a week.  I had some serious withdrawals waiting for book five to come out.

Since early on I have identified as a Ravenclaw.  Not wanting to be sorted into another house stopped me from going to this section, temporarily.  When I finally did go I was happy to be placed into Ravenclaw.


My wand would be made of Cyprus wood with a dragon heartstring core.  It would be 12 3/4 inches long with unyielding flexibility.  The cypress wood was the most surprising trait to me because it often finds its soul mate among the brave and self-sacrificing, which are not the best words to describe me.  But, all  the wands traits (wood, core, length and flexibility), the owner’s life experiences and style of magic all combine to make a wand unique from all others.

My patronis would be a Grey Squirrel.  This shocked me at first, not sure why it shocked my but it did.  Once I did a little digging into Grey Squirrels I became prouder of my patronis.

Learning my Ilvermorny house was the most fun.  For those of you who don’t know Ilvermorny is the wizardry school in America, located in Massachusetts.  It was founded in 1627 (that’s 637 years after Hogwarts).  At Ilvermorny there are four houses, each one named after a founder’s favorite magical creature.  I was placed in house Pukwudgie.


A Pukwudgie is a short, grey faced, large eared creature native to America.  They are distantly related to the European Goblin and possess magical powers of their own.  They are fiercely independent and hunt with deadly poisoness arrows.  They are not fond of humans (whether magical or muggle) and enjoy playing tricks on them.

Well those are my Pottermore sorting details.  I would love to know where all of you were sorted, so please share in the comments.  If you haven’t visited Pottermore yet, click here to learn your sorting.

Happy reading,




I was a bibliophile before I learned the alphabet. From an early age I have used books to relieve the pressures of reality. I was I teenager before I appreciated the learning power of books. Now, as an adult, I read books for both learning and relaxation.
