Books Top 5 Wednesday

Top 5 Wednesday: Books For Your Hogwarts House

September 13, 2017

What is Top 5 Wednesday?

Top 5 Wednesday is a weekly book meme hosted by Sam of Thoughts on Tomes on YouTube. Here is the link for the Goodreads group where you can find the list of topics and such. 

Books For Your Hogwarts House

 

You might belong in Gryffindor,

Where dwell the brave at heart,

Their daring, nerve and chivalry,

Set Gryffindors apart;

2. Truthwitch by Susan Dennard

Truthwitch is a novel that falls squarely between Gryffindor and Hufflepuff. Both Safi and Iseult are very daring and brave - sometimes a lot of the time recklessly so. But Truthwitch, at its core is a novel about friendship. The bond between Safi and Iseult is a joy to read. Being a Gryffindor though, I'm gonna say I'm adding this to my list. Consistently, these two characters conquer fears that could be detrimental to themselves and each other. Even the other side characters often exhibit traditional Gryffindor characteristics. Merrik also risks everything for his friends and for his country - usually thats his fatal flaw too!

2. Six of Crows* by Leigh Bardugo

Every single one of the Crows has something they fear and something too lose. Yet they never allowed it to hold them back or stop them from achieving their aims. I particularly love how Kaz used his phobia, turning it into part of his legend as Dirtyhands - a man who will do anything to get the job done. Yes, they aren't angels but really who wants to read about a perfect character? I certainly don't. Kaz is the definition of a leader, his plans and plots were absolutely incredible. Then if an aspect of them failed it didn't matter as he'd already accounted for them and had multiple contingencies in place. Leigh Bardugo is an astounding author.

3. The Glittering Court by Richelle Mead

I suppose you could consider this my wild card for this subject. The Glittering Court doesn't have a great deal of action or fighting but many of the characters still face trials that test their mettle. Adelaide decided to delve into the unknown and travel to a new country in order to escape an arranged marriage. Cedric fought for what he believed in and for the woman he loved. There's nothing braver than fighting for what you believe in.

5. Sarah J Maas

I'm betting the moment some of you saw this title on my list you rolled your eyes so hard it hurt. I know you're probably sick of seeing the ACOTAR/ACOMAF/ACOWAR hysteria but stick with me for a minute. Feyre at the very start of ACOTAR is such a strong woman. By no means is she without flaws, again who is? But after leading a relatively cushy lifestyle she's forced to hunt in order to simply provide for her family. She never complains and takes the snark from her older sister in her stride. And though she's scared, she shields her sisters when the fae came for her.

Stalking Jack the Ripper by Kerri Maniscalco

Audrey Rose Wadsworth is the epitome of a Gryffindor (and you could also argue Ravenclaw) her thirst for knowledge is insatiable even if it throws her into harms way. Set during the time of Jack the Ripper, Audrey is an unusual woman to say the least. She has a keen scientific mind and a hand steady enough to be a coroner - both are things considered dangerous if not a myth in women at the time. Upon witnessing first hand on the autopsy table the gruesome murders perpetrated by the ripper Audrey becomes obsessed with finding out who this infamous serial killer is. No matter the cost.
