What would happen if you put on the sorting hat?

The Sorting Process...
1. Pick you favorite house and its rival (or all the houses for the hard level).
2. Read a book that fits each characteristic (8 books in total for the easy level; 16 for difficult)
3. Keep track of all your star ratings for each book (be sure to include them each time you update this challenge)
4. At the end of the challenge calculate the overall average rating for each house based on the books you have read.
5. The house with the highest average rating is the house that you belong in!

Levels
Easy - Choose your favorite house and its rival. Read 8 books.
Hard - Choose all four houses and read 16 books.

Rivals are...
Gryffindor vs. Slytherin
Hufflepuff vs. Ravenclaw

Gea (gea89) | 1480 comments I have a question about lion shifters. Would Megan's Mark work for that? Breeds aren't really shifters but they are genetically altered and hero in this book is a Lion Breed.
