Gryffindor

  • Ready Player One, by Ernest Cline
  • The Fair Fight, by Anna Freeman
  • A Game of Thrones, by George R.R. Martin

Slytherin

  • Gone Girl, by Gillian Flynn
  • Red Rising, by Pierce Brown
  • The Great Gatsby, by F. Scott Fitzgerald

Hufflepuff

  • The Hobbit, by J.R.R. Tolkien
  • A Thousand Splendid Suns, by Khaled Hosseini
  • The Unlikely Pilgrimage of Harold Fry, by Rachel Joyce

Ravenclaw

  • A Discovery of Witches, by Deborah Harkness
  • Mr. Penumbra’s 24-Hour Bookstore, by Robin Sloan
  • The Elegance of the Hedgehog, by Muriel Barbery

Alright, its listed!! I’m selling a first edition of the silmarillion for $20 in my etsy shop, since I am very broke and I dont currently have need for a book I don’t read (yes, I have read the silmarillion, its one of my absolute favorites, but i read an ex library copy because I don’t want to damage this mint copy).

Heres the link:

Signal boosts are great, I’m hoping to sell this before I have a chance to change my mind!
