First & Then is a cutesy contemporary modern retelling of Pride and Prejudice. It’s one of those books you can pick up and finish in on sitting. Once you start reading, you won’t want to stop, trust me. It reminds me of Hufflepuf purely because I felt like if the story were a human I would just hug it all the time (which is weird because I’m not a huge fan of hugs).

Next, is Rocket Raccoon  & Groot, the comic series – now here, I’m talking more so about Groot as Rocket is definitely a Slytherin. I’ve only read volume 0 from the series but we see that Groot just really cares about his friends and will do anything for them. And you should see how quickly he persuades Rocket to do stuff for him, it’s ridiculous! Basically, Groot is the ultimate hufflepuff, in that he can still be incredibly nice but he can also  turn into a rage monster and destroy everything (and if you tell me down in the comments that a Hufflepuff never gets super friggn mad then, mate you haven’t met me on a bad day).

And then there’s Lazlo from Strange The Dreamer, and yes I guess you could argue that Lazlo is a Ravenclaw and I would accept that but to me he’s a Hufflepuff. I feel like Ravenclaws are harsher and more impatient, and we never saw that in Lazlo, though that’s not to say that all Ravenclaws would be like that, it’s just what I remember from when I last read HP.

Now, second last is Henry Hoey Hobson, a book you’ve probably never even head of but should all go read, especially if you’ve never read a book set in Aus. HHH is a bout a young kid trying to get his shit together and also trying to convince his new classmates that he’s actually not a vampire despite the mounting evidence that he is one. HHH is a fun, innocent kid who wants nothing more than to make friends and swim. It’s a great middle-grade novel and you shoud all read it.

In my mind Lockwood is a Hufflepuff because I want to abandon the thought that Hufflepuffs can’t be rude or charming, or that they can’t be kcik butt. Because let’s be real, and I don’t want to brag, but we’re the only house in which everyone stayed to fight during the Battle of Hogwarts – and that’s kinda badass.

What house are you in? Did you do a T5W? Do you completely disagree with my choices?

  1. I loved your choices and the thought process you had behind each one… like I agree about Lazlo from Strange The Dreamer (I just started this book) … actually I totally did not know what to do with this prompt so I skipped it…but I think you killed it! I agree why can’t Hufflepuff be rude or charming…!

      1. We’re going to chill in the south of France so there will be a lot of reading time. Also, it’s an 8 hour drive so I might finish it before we even arrive 😉

              1. I have The Windup Bird Chronicles by Murakami or Brave New World by Huxly. The Narrow Road to the Deep North by Flanagan has been on my TBR for a looooong time now. So probably one of those. 🙂 Completely different to Strange The Dreamer 😀

    1. I know how you feel, it seems like there are so many slytherins and gryffindors in the fandom and then within the book communit it’s mostly ravenclaws. And then we’re just chilling in the corner having a nap.
      I hope you enjoy Strange The Dreamer!

  2. Ah, you’re a Hufflepuff; I didn’t know that! 😀 I’m a Ravenclaw, and I’m super impatient, but that might just be me and completely unrelated to Ravenclaw, though. XD
