You’ll make your real friends,
Those cunning folk use any means,
To achieve their ends.”
Slytherins tend to be ambitious, shrewd and cunning. We make strong, achievement-oriented leaders with highly developed senses of self-preservation. According to Albus Dumbledore, the qualities which Salazar Slytherin valued in the students he chose included cleverness, resourcefulness, determination, and “a certain disregard for the rules.”

We are also much better-looking than the movies give us credit for. Whatever. Read my TBR list for Slytherins below (as well as Morgan’s honorable mention) and let us know what you think!
