Top Ten Tuesday: Recommendations For Hufflepuffs


Happy Tuesday and welcome back to Top Ten Tuesday, a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish!  This week's topic is a recommendations freebie - since I'm a huge fan of Harry Potter and I'd like to represent my House, here are my recommendations for my fellow Hufflepuffs!


Cinder by Marissa Meyer - This whole series really fits with it's tight core group of friends - Kai, Winter, and Wolf are totally Hufflepuffs.


Code Name Verity by Elizabeth Wein - The two leads in this novel have a such a close friendship that would make any Hufflepuff jealous.


Ella Enchanted by Gail Carson Levine - Ella embodies so many of the core traits of a Hufflepuff to me.


Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell - Levi is an excellent example of a Hufflepuff.


The Hobbit by J.R.R. Tolkien - I'd say Bilbo is a marvelous example of this House,


The Ocean at the End of the Lane by Neil Gaiman - I totally got Hufflepuff vibes from the Hempstock women.


The Perks of Being a Wallflower by Stephen Chbosky - The relationship between Charlie, Sam, and Patrick alone makes me want to include this on the list.


The Princess Bride by William Goldman - Westley and Fezzick have to be Hufflepuffs!


Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda by Beck Albertalli - Honestly, I think Simon has the best Hufflepuff qualities.  If you haven't already met Simon, what are you waiting for?


To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee - I'd say Atticus Finch also has some of the best Hufflepuff qualities.  If you haven't met him, where have you been? Just skip Go Set a Watchman.

Bonus:


Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them by J.K. Rowling - The audiobook is read by Eddie Redmayne in character as Newt Scamader!

What are other good Hogwarts House themed reads?  As always, thanks for visiting my blog and perhaps even commenting down below!

  5. Love it! Although I do identify as Ravenclaw, I definitely think I'm more of a Ravenpuff or a Huffleclaw. But I'm married to a wonderful Hufflepuff, and I agree that these characters belong in the house.

  24. Such great choices! I have read a few, but the ones I haven't read, I would like to read. I loved The Princess Bride. I am planning to read Cinder this next month. It feels like a September book to me for some reason. :-) Thank you for sharing!

    1. I hope you love Cinder - it's easily one of my favorites!

  25. I'm a Hufflepuff too-or I was on the original Pottermore, and I'm not on the newer one. It does fit my personality though! And I love badgers! I've only read The Hobbit and was forced to read To Kill A Mockingbird at school. I don't read contemporary or YA so no plans to read the rest!

    1. Originally I was a Gryffindor, but I'd say that Hufflepuff definitely fits me more. :)

  27. Unfortunately, I am not a Hufflepuff but I've read most of these books are really enjoyed them! And I didn't know the audiobook of Fantastic Beasts was narrated by Eddie Redmayne. I adore him and even though I'm not much of an audiobook fan, I think I will check that one out. Happy reading!

  30. Aww this is SO fun! I am a Hufflepuff (I mean, I haven't read the books or anything, but I have taken ALL the quizzes and really there is no doubt in my mind hah) but the only one I have read is Cinder- I guess I should really give some of these a go!

  32. I love these Hogwarts House specific lists. One day I'll stop being lazy and make a Ravenclaw one. Simon is perfect for this list. I finally read it and loved it! Now I'm dying for the movie. Great list, Lauren!

  33. Awww, Ella Enchanted, that brings back the nostalgia. I'm one of the few who actually enjoyed the film too. They're both cute. IN fact I meant to include the book on this week's Top 10, but forgot it. Oops!

    This is yet ANOTHER reminder to read 'Verity' and the Lunar books. Hopefully soon-ish. Fun list - and thanks so much, as always, for visiting Finding Wonderland, Lauren. :)
