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…
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.
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
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
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
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
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
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…
