Top Ten Tuesday

Hufflepuffs Unite!

TTT_post_graphic_txt

Top Ten Tuesday was originally started by The Broke And The Bookish, where a topic is given every Tuesday and the blogger then produces a top ten list of books to fit the weekly subject. The hosts are back from their break, and I’m very excited to connect with other Top Ten Tuesday partakers. The topic this week is ‘Top Ten Book Recommendations for Hufflepuffs‘. Being a Hufflepuff myself, I thought this would be an easy list to put together, and I wanted to steer clear of making a list of just contemporary novels, so I’ve tried to mix it up a bit, and choose books that have characters I believe carry the traits of a true Hufflepuff…

Everything, Everything

e,e

In this book, I feel like Maddy is a true Gryffindor, but I find some Hufflepuff traits in Olly. He is so patient when it comes to being able to see Maddy, and loyal to their relationship, even with what Maddy is going through.

Fangirl

16068905

LEVI IS MY HUFFLEPUFF FICTIONAL HUSBAND! He is the happiest character I have read this year, and I just can’t see him being sorted into any other house!

Everything I Never Told You

Towards the end of this book, our main character Lydia floats between houses, but her dedication towards everything she does in the beginning is inspiring, and puts her possibly as a Raven-Puff for me.

The Rosie Project

Another character who I consider to have Ravenclaw and Hufflepuff traits! Don Tillman is exceptionally clever, but it’s his dedication to the cause that I admire. Once he sets his mind to something he won’t stop until he finds what he’s looking for! Good at finding things is another Hufflepuff trait!

Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire

7979788

I could’t make a list without a bit of Harry Potter! I chose Goblet of Fire because this is the first time we see proper action from everyone’s favourite Hufflepuff, Cedric Diggory. I feel like this is an important book for Hufflepuffs to read, because it shows that even though we are not necessarily known for it, we can be brave and fight just as well as anyone at Hogwarts!

Alice in Wonderland

426803

I put Alice on here because of her use of logic to find things. When she falls down the rabbit hole, she uses intellect to find her way into Wonderland itself, and continues to learn and find on her journey.

 

Fantastic Beasts and Where To Find Them

30030950

Another book where one of our main character is a Hufflepuff! Newt embodies the true Hufflepuff perfectly, and shows us again, like Cedric, that Hufflepuffs are able to fight and stand up for what they truly believe in. Also, if this doesn’t prove Hufflepuffs are good finders, I don’t know what does!

 

The Time Traveler’s Wife

8270119

Being a time traveler isn’t easy, and Henry is so patient throughout his journey. He meets Clare, and knows he falls in love with her in the future, but in those times when Clare is younger, the patience he has to practice, to wait for his true love, is impeccable!

All The Bright Places

23357458-2

Towards the end of this novel is when one of the main characters, Violet, really shows her Hufflepuff side. Even after major events (no spoilers) that happen, Violet still stays dedicated to the project her and Finch were working on, and loyal to their friendship and love for one another.

 

I know there’s only 9 here, but I hope there is nice selection here for us Hufflepuffs to choose from. Please let me know if there are any others that you would recommend for us Hufflepuffs out there!

Until next time…

Oh I love your Hufflepuff list and you nailed it! πŸ™‚
Fangirl, Fantastic Beasts, All the Bright Places are all really great books!

Now unfortunately I’m a Slytherin myself haha
Happy TTT!

I just recommended The Time Traveller’s Wife to a customer at work today – a casual reader who wanted a guaranteed page turner to get her excited about reading again πŸ™‚

What a creative spin on this week’s topic, and you had so many good recommendations as well. The Time Traveler’s Wife is a modern classic in my opinion. The Rosie Project was a wonderful read as well.

I didn’t know that the screenplay for Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them had been released as a book. How interesting.

Here is my TTT.

Thank you, I really enjoyed The Time Traveler’s Wife, and The Rosie Project was good as well, although I wasn’t as keen on the sequel! The Fantastic Beasts screenplay is great! ☺️

Like

I didn’t know that The Rosie Project had a sequel. What didn’t you enjoy about it?

Would you recommend reading the screenplay for Fantastic Beasts? I really enjoyed the movie.

Like

It was less captivating than the first, it was still an OK read, but I just found the first more interesting! I definitely recommend the Fantastic Beasts screenplay, it allows you to use your imagination about setting and characters!

Though I’m a Slytherin, you shared a great list. I agree with Everything, Everything and Fangirl. I’m not sure about Everything I Never Told You. There are bits of Hufflepuff there. I don’t know if the main character would be completely placed. Oh well. I enjoyed your list nevertheless.

I’m not a Hufflepuff (I’m a Ravenclaw), but I thoroughly enjoyed this post. You included some really awesome books that I adore. I just stumbled upon your blog, and I’m greatly enjoying its content!

I’m new to blogging and book reviewing, and I was wondering if you had any tips for newbie bloggers and book reviewers.

If you have the time, please check out my blog @breenysbooks. I’d love any feedback. Have a wonderful day.

Hi Breeny, welcome to the book blogging universe πŸŽ‰ there are plenty of books on this list that will be loved by Ravenclaw’s and Hufflepuffs alike, and I highly recommend all that I have listed here!
Thank you so much, that’s very kind! It’s always great to see new bloggers with their own amazing content! My tips are to just be yourself and write content that you are happy with, because in the end, it’s your blog and it will really shine through if you are being genuine! As for book reviews, they may end up not being your most popular posts in terms of stats (a lot of us book bloggers find that!) but that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t stop writing them, because reviewing books for others to read is a great way for you to personally reflect on what you’ve read as well, which is why they can be quite enjoyable to write. Connect with the book community, comment of blogs (as you’re doing already!) and just be nice to people πŸ™‚
All the best with your blogging experience, and I would be happy to check out your blog πŸ™‚

I love this post!! When I saw someone do a Ravenclaw one, I instantly thought– OMG Hufflepuff would be so hard!! But you did great! I didn’t realize Levi was a Hufflepuff, but that makes so much sense now. I’m in Slytherin, so I don’t always gravitate towards the patient/loyal characters– but I did to Levi!!

Thank you, it was quite difficult to put together, I stood staring at my bookshelf for while thinking about which books I could use πŸ˜‚ I love Levi so much!! There’s no reason a Slytherin can’t enjoy these books and characters as well ☺️

Fellow Hufflepuff πŸŽ‰ I’ve never realised I sort characters until it came to creating this list, but I guess if you know the house traits and can read the characters a bit closer then it’s fairly easy!

THIS IS SO COOL! Us Hufflepuffs would tooootally suit those type of books, because they appeal to us emotionally. I’ll have to put them on my list:) xox
