If you’re a Potterhead, you probably have sorted yourself in a Hogwarts’ house already. And if not, well, go visit Pottermore.com now and sort yourself into a house, then come back here. If you turned out Gryffindor, then you’re in for a treat because today I’m gonna be sharing 5 book recommendation that any Gryffindor might like.
Shanah from Bionic Bookworm, host of Top Five Tuesday, came up with the theme for our February topics which is Harry Potter. Every week this February, we’ll be sharing book recommendations that suit every house in Hogwarts. I’m more than happy, you all. I’m a proud Potterhead and Slytherin. But even though I’m not a Gryffindor, I still enjoy compiling these books for you my Gryffindor friends.
Are you ready?
1.) Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen
Is it surprising that this book instantly came to mind when I read this week’s topic? Mr. Darcy and Elizabeth Bennet are so Gryffindor. Their stubbornness alone can surely make the sorting hat’s work easy. They’re also passionate and witty. And duh? Hermione and Elizabeth are so alike.
2.) The Lunar Chronicles by Marissa Meyer
Where do I even begin? This series’ diverse characters totally fit Gryffindor. Their adventure proved how brave they are but not only that. Throughout the series, we saw how passionate and practical the characters can be. They totally nailed their mission. And hey, anybody remembers how funny and playful Carswell Thorne was? Chivalry though is for Kai and Jacin when he’s around Winter.
3.) The Hobbit by J.R.R. Tolkien
I think Gryffindors will findThe Hobbit a great read because it’s a story not only of an adventure but of someone who surprised himself and others of what he can do. Reminds of Ron and Neville for obvious reasons. But Bilbo also reminds me of Hermione, who is a half-muggle yet became the best witch in her time and Harry himself who had no idea of the power he has within.
4.) The Book Thief by Markus Suzak
Liesel reminds me of Hermione, duh? But when I hear of this book, I don’t just remember Liesel, the girl who loves books in war-torn Germany, I also remember a tale of friendship and of a found family.
5.) The Name of the Wind by Patrick Rothfuss
First of all, the setting is also in a magic school. Sure Kvothe is a Kingkiller but still, he’s dedicated, daring and passionate. He knows what he wants and what he needs to do, and he does them. Also, he’s a rule-breaker, in school. Sound familiar?
There you have it guys, hope my Gryffindor friends find this list helpful.
But now tell me in the comments, are you a Gryffindor? Slytherin? Hufflepuff? Ravenclaw? And if you’re a Gryffindor, did you find my recommendations helpful?
