Check out Your Favorite Harry Potter Character’s Spotify!

A common writing tip is to show your characters eating. The idea is you see them at their most comfortable, behaving as they would when nobody is watching. You also get an impression of their diet, their health, and even their beliefs.


The same goes for music. You can tell a lot by the sort of music someone listens to. So here’s what I think some of our favorite Potter characters’ Spotify habits are.
