What Romances Are Harry Potter Characters Reading This Summer?

by  | August 23

If you know me, you know of my undying affection for all things Harry Potter. I was chatting with some friends about summer reading, and we began choosing books for our favorite characters. It wasn’t just Harry Potter either; our conversation morphed into romances for different fandoms. Think Kylo Ren being a secret J. R. Ward fan or Galadriel bingeing a Sarah J. Maas series.

I can see it, but those are for another post.  


Hermione Granger would love…

The Bookish Life of Nina Hill by Abbi Waxman

Can you think of a better choice for her? It’s almost a no-brainer! This quick-witted, smart as a whip heroine even has a cat! Not Crookshanks, but Phil!

Nymphadora Tonks would love…

Wolf Rain by Nalini Singh

Another easy choice! Wolf Rain by Nalini Singh is right up Tonks’s alley. The book is part of the Psy-Changeling Trinity series and a must read for those who love to take a walk in the moonlight with their lycanthropic love. As long as they’ve had their wolfsbane potion to keep them safe.

Neville Longbottom would love…

The Friend Zone by Abby Jimenez  

Okay, hear me out for this one. Neville is pure joy and the kick-ass friend that everyone needs even if he’s a bit of a clumsy git. He could have been the Chosen One after all. Neville would easily be the guy helping plan a wedding as Kristen does for her best friend in The Friend Zone and have a dog with an adorbs name like Stuntman Mike as does Kristen. This guy ALWAYS deserved a happy ending and, per Pottermore, he got one with a witch named Hannah.

Luna Lovegood would love…

Waiting for Tom Hanks by Kerry Winfrey

Drew Danforth would have swept the lovely Luna right off her bare feet (because the Nargles stole her shoes again!). A moony-eyed romantic like Luna would snatch up this book and tuck into it on a lovely beach maybe near the seashell cottage.

Lavender Brown would love…

How to Hack a Heartbreak by Kristin Rockaway

Let’s pretend for a moment that dear, overzealous Lavender didn’t meet her untimely death at the hands of Fenrir Greyback and lived happily ever after with a darling popular wizard like Alex Hernandez in How to Hack a Heartbreak. Lavender needed a non-douchey guy (sorry Ron) who only had eyes for her.

Harry Potter would love…

The Perfect Date by Evelyn Lozada

I have ZERO doubt that Harry would be a romance novel–loving squishy, and this book would be a smashing choice for him to get all the things he loves in one book. While our leading man Caleb “The Duke” is into baseball and not Quidditch, I think Harry would be charmed by our heroine Angel Gomez.

The Bookish Life of Nina Hill

The Bookish Life of Nina Hill

by Abbi Waxman

Meet Nina Hill: A young woman supremely confident in her own…shell.

The only child of a single mother, Nina has her life just as she wants it: a job in a bookstore, a kick-butt trivia team, a world-class planner and a cat named Phil. If she sometimes suspects there might be more to life than reading, she just shrugs and picks up a new book.
 
When the father Nina never knew existed suddenly dies, leaving behind innumerable sisters, brothers, nieces, and nephews, Nina is horrified. They all live close by! They’re all—or mostly all—excited to meet her! She’ll have to Speak. To. Strangers. It’s a disaster! And as if that wasn’t enough, Tom, her trivia nemesis, has turned out to be cute, funny, and deeply interested in getting to know her. Doesn’t he realize what a terrible idea that is?

Wolf Rain

Wolf Rain

by Nalini Singh

The end of Silence was supposed to create a better world for future generations. But trust is broken, and the alliance between Psy, Changeling, and human is thin. The problems that led to Silence are back in full force. Because Silence fixed nothing, just hid the problems.

This time, the Psy have to find a real answer to their problems–if one exists. Or their race will soon go extinct in a cascade of violence. The answer begins with an empath who is attuned to monsters–and who is going to charm a wolf into loving her despite his own demons.

The Friend Zone

The Friend Zone

by Abby Jimenez
Kristen Peterson doesn’t do drama, will fight to the death for her friends, and has no room in her life for guys who just don’t get her. She’s also keeping a big secret: facing a medically necessary procedure that will make it impossible for her to have children.
Planning her best friend’s wedding is bittersweet for Kristen — especially when she meets the best man, Josh Copeland. He’s funny, sexy, never offended by her mile-wide streak of sarcasm, and always one chicken enchilada ahead of her hangry. Even her dog, Stuntman Mike, adores him. The only catch: Josh wants a big family someday. Kristen knows he’d be better off with someone else, but as their attraction grows, it’s harder and harder to keep him at arm’s length.

How to Hack a Heartbreak

by Kristin Rockaway

Swipe right for love. Swipe left for disaster. By day, Mel Strickland is an underemployed helpdesk tech at a startup incubator, Hatch, where she helps entitled brogrammers--"Hatchlings"--who can't even fix their own laptops, but are apparently the next wave of startup geniuses. And by night, she goes on bad dates with misbehaving dudes she's matched with on the ubiquitous dating app, Fluttr. But after one dick pic too many, Mel has had it. Using her brilliant coding skills, she designs an app of her own, one that allows users to log harrassers and abusers in online dating space. It's called JerkAlert, and it goes viral overnight.Mel is suddenly in way over her head. Worse still, her almost-boyfriend, the dreamy Alex Hernandez--the only non-douchey guy at Hatch--has no idea she's the brains behind the app. Soon, Mel is faced with a terrible choice: one that could destroy her career, love life, and friendships, or change her life forever.Kristin Rockaway is a native New Yorker and recovering corporate software engineer. After working in the IT industry for far too many years, she finally traded the city for the surf and chased her dreams out to Southern California, where she spends her days happily writing stories instead of code. When she’s not working, she enjoys spending time with her husband and son, and planning her next big vacation.

The Perfect Date

The Perfect Date

by Evelyn Lozada, Holly Lorincz

When a single mom ends up playing an unwilling fake girlfriend to a charming playboy baseball player, love suddenly turns everything upside down in this fun, heartwarming multicultural romance.

Angel Gomez has never lived by the book. A Bronx-based unwed mother by the time she was sixteen, Angel’s personal mission has always been to show the world that a Puerto Rican girl is not to be messed with—especially by a man. The only thing that matters to Angel, now, is providing for her son and earning enough tips at the club to complete her nursing degree along the way. Love is nowhere on her agenda.

Caleb “The Duke” Lewis is a star pitcher for the Bronx Bolts whose romantic escapades make delicious fodder for gossip columns. But lately he’s been trying to keep a lower profile—so much so that when he meets Angel, first while she’s in her nurse uniform and the next time behind the bar, she has no idea who Duke is, fails to fall for his obvious charm, and ends up throwing a drink in his face! She is the perfect woman for Duke...to fool the tabloids into thinking he’s finally settling down. But what begins as a charade soon has Duke and Angel hurtling into a full-blown romance that rocks each of their worlds and begs the question: Is this the real deal—or are some love stories just too good to be true?
