Harry Potter Book Night: The Professors of Hogwarts

Welcome to Harry Potter Book Night: the Professors of Hogwarts! Last year we played games related to Harry Potter, and so we’ll do the same this year! But the games are different, of course. You’ll find part of the fun on this post, and the rest of my Social Media. All Professors have something cool surrounding them. However, my favorite is Severus Snape. Who is your favorite Professor?

Prepare yourself for a night of magic! This post is going to be long and mysterious. I’m not going to write the answers to all the questions today. You’ll need to wait for a day so that people can have fun first! Besides, if you had all the answers at the end of the post, it wouldn’t be that fun, would it?

[Note: this post contains some affiliate links. It has no extra cost to you. Using my affiliate links, you give a book or comic book a new home. And then, you’ll find a review about them here. Also, material presented in this post is copyright of Bloomsbury.]

You can play along if you’ve read the Harry Potter Books. It doesn’t matter what edition, however, my clues refer to the new UK Bloomsbury edition. In fact, the Harry Potter Book Night is organized by Bloomsbury! [I had so much fun last year with the whole thing that I had to do it again! So, if you’re a blogger and love the books, I invite you to join us next year creating fun and magic on your blog too.]

First of all: what House are you sorted in? Are you in Gryffindor? Hufflepuff? Ravenclaw? Slytherin? When taking the games, remember to mention your house so we can count the points that you win. The more points you win, the more points your House gets. If you decide to share this post on your Social Media and take part in the games, remember to write #HarryPotterBookNight when you share your answers.

But before we go further, let’s remember some of the Professors!
