This week’s topic is Books For Your Hogwarts House. The prompt this week is to: Show some Hogwarts House Pride, and share the top 5 books that represent your house!
Y’all might not know this but I’m a proud Slytherin.
So with this post I’m about to show some major Slytherin pride and list 5 books I think best represent the house traits: cunning, resources, ambition, and creativity!
1. Red Rising by Pierce Brown
Probably no book/character on this list is as slytherin as Darrow au Andromedus the main character of this wonderful book. I think Darrow and the rest of the cast of this book are the embodiment of traits of a slytherin. Ambitious, resourceful and sometimes a little devious. If you haven’t read this book, it’s basically the hunger games meets Roman mythology… in space…. and actually better.
2. Dark Matter by Blake Crouch
Another book whose main character had slytherin traits. I think slytherin is about doing whatever it takes to get what you what and this guy (Jason Dessen (the protagonist)) fought and clawed until he achieved his goal.
Basically Dark Matter is a book about a man who is abducted from the world he knows and placed in a world he would consider as perfect. In this new world he’s a celebrated genius who invented the impossible, But he’s wife is not his wife and his child was never born. Is it this new world or the other that’s the dream?
3. Six of Crows by Leigh Bardugo
Slytherin is all about ambition, cunning, resourcefulness and creativity. And nobody embodies those traits more than Kaz Brekker (and his crew). If you’ve not read Six of Crows yet, what have you been doing with your life?? An impossible heist, the perfect crew to pull it off, a fat load of money to top it all off. Leigh Bardugo crafted the perfect book for all us slippery Slytherins to love to death.
4. The Young Elites by Marie Lu
Anti-hero is basically the definition of slytherin so what better book to recommend than this? The Young Elites is one of the rare books where the author nails the anti-hero main character. I mean the plot is pretty good: superpowers and kick-ass characters… Marie Lu never disappoints!
5. The Star Touched Queen by Roshani Chokshi
So The Star Touched Queen is all about a girl who finds herself queen to a powerful magical kingdom and with her new position she descovers powers beyond fathom and secrets worth dying for. Roshani Chokshi spins an incredible tale full of intrigue and mystery but at the heart of the story is a girl with ambition and cunning which makes this an amazing Slytherin read!
