Here’s to you, brave and daring Gryffindors!
1. Harry Potter Series by J.K. Rowling
Oh, come on! You know that this series is a given for our Gryffindors!
2. Wolf by Wolf Duology by Ryan Graudin
Yael is one badass chick who isn’t afraid to risk her life in order to take down the most terrible man in the world, Adolf Hitler. Remind you of a famous Gryffindor perhaps?
3. Uprooted by Naomi Novik
A young girl brave enough to work for a mysterious sorcerer and then willing to brave a dangerous forest in order to save her home? Yup, Agnieszka is a Gryffindor.
4. The Illuminae Files Series by Amie Kaufman & Jay Kristoff
I think all Gryffindors can appreciate and admire the extreme bravery it takes to try and save multiple ships full of refugees from an insane AI, a termination squad, and some crazy man-eating alien snakes.
5. The Gold Seer Trilogy by Rae Carson
It takes a lot of heart and courage to brave a trek across the United States from Georgia to California during the California Gold Rush. It takes even more when you’re a teenage girl doing it alone.
6. The Nightingale by Kristin Hannah
Vianne and Isabelle are two of the bravest women that I’ve ever read about. I think all Gryffindors would gladly accept them in their House.
7. The Red Rising Trilogy by Pierce Brown
I think we can all agree that every single thing that Darrow has to go through in order to destroy the Golds, takes a hell of a lot of bravery. He’s also pretty damn chivalrous too, with just a hint of pride (especially when he gives his speeches!). Kind of the perfect Gryffindor combo, wouldn’t you say?
8. The Valiant by Lesley Livingston
I think just being a gladiator in general takes a lot of balls. I also think that a Gryffindor would pretty much say, bring it on.
9. Throne of Glass Series by Sarah J. Maas
This series is really all about strong women. I think all Gryffindors would be salivating at the chance to go on an adventure with Aelin and her gang.
10. Not if I See You First by Eric Lindstrom
There are all kinds of bravery, but I think Parker’s is a special kind. Her independence and strength is inspiring to see. And can you imagine watching her interactions with the Weasley twins in the Gryffindor common room? I need it!
Gryffindors, what did you think about your list? Do you agree with my choices? What books would you add to your list?
