Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created at The Broke and the Bookish.
August 15: Ten book recommendations for ______________: (Skies the limit here…examples: for Hufflepuffs, for fans of Game of Thrones, for people who don’t normally read YA, for animal lovers, for video game lovers, etc.
I chose book recommendations for Hufflepuffs! These books are great stories about family, friendship and loyalty.
1) Red Rising Trilogy by Pierce Brown
You will not find two friends more loyal than Sevro and Victra. They stand by Darrow no matter what. Of course there’s more than just their unconditional love in the trilogy, but I singled them out because I love them both so much.
2) The True and Outstanding Adventures of the Hunt Sisters by Elisabeth Robinson
I have not read this in years. But I remember laughing and crying. I have kept it because I do intend to read it again one day and it’s a book about sisters.
3) The One Man by Andrew Gross
Leo and Professor Mendl are not even family but they are loyal to each other. There was also the loyalty and courage of Nathan. Not many people would take on the mission he did and carry it out to completion.
4) Star Wars Legends: The X-Wing series, by Michael A. Stackpole and Aaron Allston.
We Hufflepuffs are often teased and underestimated. But we can still kick ass (just look at the Battle of Hogwarts.) These books shows the other side of Star Wars that doesn’t deal with the Jedi or the Sith. Even those who can’t use the Force can make a difference and kick ass too. It’s a good series for those who feel like the underdogs.
5) Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire by J.K. Rowling
Because hello! Cedric. Yes, he dies but he represented our House wonderfully. Damn you, Voldemort.
