T5W: Books For Your Hogwarts House (AKA Hufflepuff)

Guys, guys, guys!

This is my first T5W ever!

A round of applause to the creators of this massively popular feature, Lainey and Sam on Goodreads.

Yes, I’ve finally succumbed to peer pressure and decided to try this weekly feature for a little while to see how it goes. I’m sure it’s going to be tons of fun! And just prove how fun it’s going to be I’m starting on a Harry Potter themed week! 

 

Show your Hogwarts House Pride,

and tell us the top 5 books that represent your house!

 

Hufflepuffs are famous for their hard work, dedication, fair play, patience, and most of all, loyalty. Basically, we’re the best friends one could ask for! (I’m in such a humble mood today, aren’t I? Haha!)

 

So here we go:

 

Anne of Green Gables by L.M. Montgomery 20893527

I’m pretty sure that if the sorting hat sat upon Anne’s head it would immediately sing out: HUFFLEPUFF!

She’s loyal, enthusiastic, inclusive, and kind. That’s a true Hufflepuff through and through.

“It doesn’t matter what age you are; this series is sweet and poignant and will leave you with a smile on your face.” – Bustle

 

5907 The Hobbit by J.R.R. Tolkien

This is a charming (and sometimes long-winded) adventure story involving fierce friendships, a harder-than-life journey, and a humbling amount of loyalty. What more could we ask for?

Plus, I love the movie. So there.

Where there’s life there’s hope” – The Hobbit

 

Eleanor & Park by Rainbow Rowell 15745753

Right, I have to admit that I haven’t exactly read this book yet (shocking, right?!), but the blurb sounds very Hufflepuff-y…

Apparently, this story is all about inclusivity and friendship, which is alright in my books.

Plus, who doesn’t like a sweet YA love story?

 

Charlie and the Chocolate Factory by Roald Dahl 109089

As far as characters go, Charlie Bucket should be crowned the king of the Hufflepuffs!

 

“A boy who is honest and kind, brave and true, and good and ready for the wildest time of his life!” – Charlie and the Chocolate Factory

 

 

12025482 The Unofficial Harry Potter Cookbook by Dinah Buchotz

So, I’ve recently found out that the stereotype is that Hufflepuffs love food. I’m not sure how true that is (my source may or may not be a reliable one), but I’m a hufflepuff and I absolutely love all sorts of food! (Except for peas and spicy things. Why people burn their taste buds on purpose I’ll never know!)

I think that with this magical cookbook you’d be able to share a mug of Butterbeer with your housemates, because kindness and generosity is what Hufflepuff is all about.

How to Disagree Without Being Disagreeable

by Suzette Haden Elgin 11222700

 

Well, the clue is in the title really, isn’t it?

 

 

 

So this is it for my first T5W, and I can already tell this is going to be a great little feature.

Let’s see what next week brings us, shall we?

    I love your picks for this!! I consider myself to be a Ravenclaw/Hufflepuff mix (Huffleclaw? Ravenpuff?) so I would probably have some similar titles on my list. I also really need to read Anne of Green Gables sometime!

    i really love top 5 wednesday, even though i relate this feature to booktube more than book blogging. but i’m sure i’ll enjoy reading your posts as well!
    although i’m not a hufflepuff, i’d recommend attachments, instead of eleanor & park by rainbow rowell. the book deals with very unique friendships and romantic relationships, which can be refreshing. i also think some of the characters’ traits fit this house very well! i hope you give it a chance, if you haven’t already!
