Hello bookworms! I’m Nia and today I’m going to be talking about some books that represent my Hogwarts House.
For the ones of you who don’t know I believe I was a Gryffindor my entire life until the Pottermore test told me I was actually a Ravenclaw (I did it again weeks after and said I was Slytherin and Gryffindor buuut nevermind, everyone agreed my place was Ravenclaw). So today I’m going to be talking about books I think would fit into this particular house.
If you aren’t familiar with Top 5 Wednesday, it is a Goodeads group now currently run by Sam over at ToughtsOfTomes on Youtube, where each week they give you a topic and you talk about 5 books that fit that category. You can join the group here if you want to participate!
These are in no particular order. Without any further ado, let’s start!
Okay tell me I’m not the only one who thought this book would be a perfect Ravenclaw recommendation. C’mon, they are teenagers who are looking for a dead Welsh king. Also even though not all characters would be Ravenclaw, I think one of the main focuses in the series is individuality, wisdom and character acceptance. Also the main characters are so different and original I couldn’t place this book anywhere else.
The Winner’s Curse | Marie Rutkoski
Now the reason why I added this book to this list is because I completely think it is a perfect Ravenclaw. The characters are so incredibly clever and intelligent and I think it focuses more on the intelectual, with all those war plots and back stabbing rather in just fight. Kestrel can’t actually fight and she is a very creative and clever girl and one of my favourite female characters.
The Infernal Devices | Cassandra Clare
Well… I couldn’t help it. Basically all of these books I’ve mention have some characters that I place in Ravenclaw and that’s the major reason why these books are mentioned.
In this case, I don’t know why but I think the three main characters would be in Ravenclaw if they ever came to Hogwarts. Or probably Griffyndor, but I think Tessa and Will at least would be placed in Ravenclaw. Don’t judge me but that’s the only reason.
Hunted | Meagan Spooner
This story basically is a searching for freedom, but at the same time our main character is trying to come to terms with her family and now her new self living with the beast. She’s very creative and intelligent and there is some folklore in the book that made me learn more about russian culture and made the book different from other retellings I’ve read.
Fangirl | Rainbow Rowell
Last but definitely not least! Fangirl has such a special place in my heart because I read it in a hard time of my life and I identified so much with our protagonist, Cath. During the whole entire book Cath is trying to fit into the university life while still being herself and dealing with her social anxiety. She’s incredibly creative and original and I think the whole message of this book is that it’s okay if you’re different and feel you don’t really fit in the mold. That’s pretty cool too.
What is your Hogwarts house and what books do you think would fit perfectly with it?
