A Million More Pages - Hogwarts: Hogwarts Face Off - Finished

Hogwarts Face Off hosted by A Million More Pages on Goodreads.

I chose to do Ravenclaw VS Gryffindor. After reading 19 books for this challenge Ravenclaw won the challenge with 1 star more than Gryffindor.
19 books = 6.9 points

This is a face-off challenge. You will choose TWO houses that will face-off against each other. After you have read the books for each task and spelled out the founder house names, you will need to post the date completed and your rating. The house with the highest ratings wins the face-off.

Each house has the founders first name that you will need to spell out using the title of your book, the authors first OR last name (no middle initials), or the series name.

You will also need to complete the three tasks under each character from the houses you have chosen.

You have 3 months to complete this challenge.

*You may use a book twice during this challenge.
*Re-reads are allowed.


.10 points for each book read
2 points for participation
