Top Five Tuesday: Hufflepuff Reads!

I may be kinda busy but I’ll never miss out on my house in a million years! So hello to my fellow Puffs, it’s our time to shine!

This February, I’ll be joining on Shanah @ Bionic Bookworm’s Top Five Tuesdays! I happen to stumble into her post revealing the prompts for February and I was excited when I saw that we’d be doing a HARRY POTTER theme!

That’s right, Potterheads! For the month of February, prompts will be HP-themed! Each week, different houses are assigned. Choose top five (or more) books that you think would a person of the house would enjoy or a book with a character that has the traits of the house featured.

For more info, check out Shanah’s post here.

A little recap..

Last week’s house was Ravenclaw! Check my post here to see what I recommended for Ravenclaw.

So like I’ve said, this week’s house is HUFFLEPUFF!

They are hard working, determined, tenacious, loyal, honest, genuine, well rounded, fair and just, open-minded, giving, good-hearted, accepting, compassionate, practical, patient, unemotional, and dependable. Their loyalty is not given – it’s earned.

So as a Hufflepuff, I’ll be picking up five books that wake the inner badger in me. Most of the books I featured are fuzzy reads or ones that feature amazing friendship within the characters.

Erica’s Picks

Here are my top five picks for the Hufflepuff house:

TO ALL THE BOYS I’VE LOVED BEFORE TRILOGY BY JENNY HAN

This may be a biased pick but I just said I’ll be picking up books that speak to my inner badger. So much love for this trilogy! Lara Jean and Peter K. made me love contemporary romance reads! And isn’t it enough reason that LARA JEAN IS A HUFFLEPUFF? Puffs represent!

And also, I love this book so much. Will never get tired of rereading it! Hooray for fuzzy romance reads!

THE NEVERWOOD CHRONICLES BY CHANDA HAHN

I have so much love for retellings so I can’t really resist reading one for Peter Pan! There’s Wendy, Tinkerbell, Peter and the lost boys! Enjoyed reading them but I still haven’t gotten to the third book because I’ve read this late 2017, I think? But yaayyy, I chose this because they stick together. Whenever someone pans (restarts/loses their memories) or gets lost, they all work together to watch out for them. By reading these wonderful books, you can really see how they stand up for each other. Plus, I really recommend this to fans of Peter Pan!

THE MIRACULOUS JOURNEY OF EDWARD TULANE BY KATE DICAMILLO

I love me some classics. What I loved about this book was Edward’s journey (of course) and how his relationship was to people that picked him up. It’s basically a few tales that feature different kinds of friendships. Am I still making sense? LMAO. Edward may not be that likable in the start but I swear the ending was so good. Super recommend!

DEADLY SWEET BY LOLA DODGE

Books and pastries? Yes please! Truly a mouthwatering read. Actually, this is a pretty good fantasy read too. It features different kinds of magic. Anise and her aunt bake magical pastries. There’s necromancy, and magic focused on plants/herbs, etc.

This one is more on Anise being hard-working. She works and studies hard to prove herself to her aunt. She wants to show her that she really is deserving to be her apprentice. And I really love everything dessert-related!

THE ROYALS SERIES BY ERIN WATT

This is originally 5 books and I also loved the last 2 but I really think it was unnecessary. Or it would really work out well if it’s labeled as a spin-off or a different series. The first 3 books are about Ella and Reed with a dash of mystery. The other two then’s all about Easton.

Okay, enough with my rants and rambling. This is a contemporary romance-y with mystery read. What’s really “Hufflepuff-y” about this book is the way the siblings are always there for each other. They may have issues at first but it’s nice to see them all stand up for each other during the bad times.

Read my review of The Cracked Kingdom (last in the series) here.  

Yaayyy for five features! I personally loved and enjoy this books so I recommend them not just for Hufflepuffs like me!

    1. It was really good for the first two books. The last one wasn’t really necessary but loved it too because of Peter and Lara Jean, haha! The Neverwood Chronicles is pretty interesting but I haven’t read the last book yet. First two books were really good. And I swear, I really craved for lots of pastries because of Deadly Sweet!
