For those that aren't aware, I'm a Gryffindor.
1. Throne of Glass by Sarah J Maas
Lysandra is most definitely a Gryffindor, for so many reasons. A lot of which she displays in Kingdom of Ashes but my first thought always comes back to Evangeline. How she took her in despite the repercussions, not being able to be free from the life she loathed. Bravery beyond measure.
Sonea entered the unknown multiple times in this series and did so despite her fears. She was courageous and fought for her friends, even when it meant she would be judged. She was such an inspiration in the books and grew with every passing instalment.
All throughout the ACOTAR Feyre is the epitome of a Gryffindor but I believe A Court of Mist and Fury is the book the cemented her position as one for me. She not only fights physically but to begin with battles her own mind as a result of the events in book one and the treatment she then endures. It takes a brave woman to ask for help and an even braver one to keep going and stand up against her aggressor. Even if it's sometimes her own mind.
I have a review for A Court of Wings and Ruin here.
I have a review for A Court of Frost and Starlight here.
Mariko put herself in harm's way to defend herself and her people. She did so by pretending to be a boy and learning not only to fight but how to utilise her greatest weapon. Her mind. She's the perfect blend of Gryffindor and Ravenclaw.
