Coming back to our obsession with the Harry Potter series, we all belong to one of the four houses. Based on the characteristics:
- Gryffindors are brave, courageous, and determined
- Slytherins are cunning, ambitious, and proud
- Ravenclaws value knowledge, wit, and wisdom
- Hufflepuffs are patient, loyal, and fair
Every house has its pros. So, whether you’re chivalrous, cunning, intelligent, or a badger, here are some suggestions to whet your literary appetite.
Save these compelling reads with Fayvo and embrace your house values. Let’s get to the book recommendations.
COURAGE – BRAVERY – DETERMINATION
The Bear and The Nightingale by Katherine Arden
Set in medieval Russia, where women must marry and live a secluded life apart from society and where the old gods of Russia are fading by the power of Christianity, our main character Vasya fights hard to save herself, her family, and her village from ancient evil even though it caused people to label her as a witch and disgrace her family.
Time’s Convert by Deborah Harkness
Let’s be honest: Most Gryffindors would probably rather be out having an adventure than inside reading about one. But as long as there’s plenty of action and an epic hero, they’ll be happy. Time’s Convert, a supernatural story about love and belonging (and vampires), will do the trick. Especially if you’re a fan of the All Souls Trilogy.
PRIDE – AMBITION – CUNNING
Forest of A Thousand Lanterns by Julie C. Dao
Telling the origin of the Evil Queen, Xifeng represents the best and worst quality of Slytherin: pride and ambition that helps her reach what she wants but also cause her to be ruthless to people who are in her way, and cunning mind that help her strategize and think before making her move.
The Dark Descent of Elizabeth Frankenstein by Kiersten White
Would you expect anything less than a gothic horror novel for a Slytherin? This retelling of Frankenstein from the perspective of Elizabeth is sinister, twisted, and downright creepy. Two atmospheric thumbs up.
WIT – LEARNING – WISDOM
The Five People You Meet in Heaven by Mitch Albom
When Eddie was killed after saving a girl from a fallen Ferris wheel, he learned that heaven is not a place, it’s where his life is explained by 5 people, revealing questions about his life. This is a book that definitely makes you think about your life and your connection with others.
Eliza Hamilton: The Extraordinary Life and Times of the Wife of Alexander Hamilton by Tilar J. Mazzeo
A Ravenclaw never minds a quick history lesson, and this one revolves around Eliza Hamilton. There’s so much more to A-dot-Ham’s wife than what they sing about in Hamilton. Get to know Eliza’s many sides in this incredibly well-researched biography. It’s so good, it might inspire you to write a musical of your own.
DEDICATION – PATIENCE – LOYALTY
Six of Crows by Leigh Bardugo
6 criminals working together to pull off an impossible heist. It seems impossible that this group could pull this off without killing each other but as the story goes, it became clear that this group has only loyalty towards each other.
Analee, In Real Life by Janelle Milanes
Hufflepuffs want to feel every single emotion while they read, and they aren’t ashamed about it. They also don’t mind a little romance with their fiction. And Analee, In Real Life, which follows a teenager struggling to put all of her thoughts and anxieties into words, will certainly check all of those boxes.
