This was created by Hannah from A Clockwork Reader and I fell in love with the idea right away. I intend to do one for every house but I wanted to start with Hufflepuff because it’s my house! I know it seems to be the least loved of the houses but I am personally very proud of it.
“You might belong in Hufflepuff,
Where they are just and loyal,
Those patient Hufflepuffs are true,
And unafraid of toil”
Patience. Loyalty. Friendship. Kindness. Dedication. Hardwork.
(this is quite difficult because I agree with Hannah in the video when she says a lot of characters in the young adult genre tend to fall into the Griffindor/Slytherin category but I gave it my best shot)
The State of Grace
By Rachael Lucas
I always thought this was a very “Hufflepuff” kind of book, even as I was reading this, because Grace is such a sweet, gentle and loyal character who adores animals and although she makes a lot of mistakes her heart is in the right place when they happen.
This novel is about an autistic young teenage girl who gains a crush on a boy and she’s thrown into a whirlwind of emotions. It’s adorable. Seriously, really cute.
Two Boys Kissing
By David Levithan
This might sound like an odd choice to some and a perfect choice for others but the reason why I think this is a Hufflepuff book is because there’s a lot of loyalty and love in this novel. There’s patience, hardwork and dedication considering this story revolves around two boys who are standing up outside a school setting the world record for kissing to show the world that it’s okay for two boys to kiss. An emotional one but a must read.
By Sara Pennypacker
Although I haven’t finished this book yet, there’s no denying that there is an amazing amount of loyalty in this story. This follows a boy who has this friendship with a fox and, in a very The Fox and the Hound way, they were separated and they both go on a terrifying journey to find each other again. A lot of loyalty, a lot of dedication. A very strong friendship.
As Hannah only recommended three (I believe…), I will only recommend three. Plus, finding books representing Hufflepuff is very difficult! My current read, The Upside of Unrequited, probably falls under it too as I think Molly so far is a very loyal and good friend, the relationships within the book are healthy and it’s a nice thing to see in young adult. Although I didn’t finish Pax, I was almost finished with it, but this one I’m not even halfway through so I don’t think I should add it in here.
I hope you enjoyed! This was super fun, and super difficult. The other houses (especially Griffindor) will probably be much easier. Until next time.
