The Demon King by Cinda Williams Chima

Since You've Been Gone by Morgan Matson

I'll Give You the Sun by Jandy Nelson

There's an unfortunate stigma attached to the Hufflepuff house. Some people think they're just the leftovers who don't have a place anywhere else, but that's just silly. Hufflepuffs are loyal, and true loyalty is hard to come by. These books all about sticking to those you love and defending them fiercely and always. There's love, and  sometimes betrayal, but in the end, that Hufflepuff loyalty shines through and conquers all.

Let's face it–when most people think Slytherin, they think evil. But there's a lot more to a Slytherin than just the bad guys. A Slytherin is cunning and determined, and the protagonists of these stories share that mentality. They're not just brave and smart, but ready to do whatever it takes to achieve their goals. Either stay out of the way or be prepared to help these heroes fight the good (or bad) fight because it's going down one way or another.
