T5T: Books for Hufflepuffs

Hello, my darling readers!
It’s Tuesday, that means it’s time for a T5T post!
It’s hosted by Bionic Book Worm and is quite simple: check out the topic and write a post with your picks.
For this month, we get a very special treat: for the first time ever, there is a theme! So all four T5T posts for February are related to the Hogwarts houses.
Today I’ll try to figure out some books for the guys and gals in Hufflepuff!

#1 The Rules of Magic by Alice Hoffman:

I’ve had this book in mind for quite some time now but couldn’t figure out which Hogwarts house to pair it with. Hufflepuff seems like a legit choice, though. The kids sorted into that house share many traits with the characters of the novel – they are hardworking, open-minded, giving and practical. Alice Hoffman’s book contains magic, love, and heartbreak. I bet the Hufflepuffs would love it!

#2 Eat, Pray, Love by Elizabeth Gilbert:

Of all the houses, I always considered the Hufflepuff kids to be the most down to earth. Gilbert’s book is a rather practical guide but paired with lots of emotion. She encourages many traits valued by the Hufflepuffs – they’d devour her heartfelt account of her quest for healing!

#3 The Book Thief by Markus Zusak:

With The Book Thief Markus Zusak ripped out my heart and tore it to shreds. It’s an account of unwavering loyalty and the goodness in people – even during the bleakest of times. Those traits are essential to Hufflepuff, so I’m sure they’d read the book and then sit with me while crying my eyes.
