Which books would you recommend to Draco?
At first I thought this question would be really hard. How would I know what books to recommend to a fictional character?! But then I started thinking about books that had Slytherin characters in them. Some of them are the main characters, some are villains, but either way they are Slytherins through-and-through.
Blood Red Road (Dustlands #1) by Moira Young
Saba can be cold, selfish, and cunning, but she also is very protective of her brother (and later) her sister. She's a Slytherin who goes after what she wants and has good intentions even if things end up going terribly wrong because of her actions. I think Draco could definitely relate to Saba.
Steelheart (Reckoners #1) by Brandon Sanderson
The main villain, Steelheart, is a near-immortal superhuman (called an Epic) who becomes a tyrant. Basically, it's a world where a Voldemort-like character won the war without much of a fight.
Shadow and Bone (The Grisha #1)
If the Darkling isn't a Slytherin, I don't know who is.
The Hunger Games (Hunger Games #1) by Suzanne Collins
There's a lot of Slytherins in this series. I think some arguments could be made for Gryffindor, but, for the most part, anyone who is playing the game (Katniss, Haymitch, Cato, Finnick, Joanna, Snow, Coin, etc.) is a Slytherin. Again, I think Katniss' loyalty to her family would be relatable to Draco.
Mind Games (Mind Games #1) by Kiersten White
Fia is made a Slytherin through her circumstances. Because of the world she is in she's forced to become something she wishes she wasn't so she can protect her sister. Now that I think about it, I would totally ship Draco/Fia :D
One For the Money (Stephanie Plum #1) by Janet Evanovich
Okay, this one is just kind of a joke. I don't think that Stephanie is a Slytherin. I would just recommend this to Draco to see his face when he is reading it. It would be HILARIOUS! Spandex, big hair, car explosions, Grandma Mazur...What a way to be introduced to Muggle culture. LOL
