I haven’t done a Top 5 Wednesday in a while but when I saw this topic I just HAD to join in this week. This week’s theme is books for your Hogwarts House! Woohoo! So if you couldn’t tell already I am from House Ravenclaw (which I fully embrace because I always knew I’d be one) so I am choosing a few books I think my fellow Ravenclaws would enjoy!

Also this is something that can range very much from person to person but my take on “Ravenclaw books” would be something very well-written as well as a little whimsical (since Ravenclaw is typically associated with both wit and wisdom). Basically you could say I’m basing my book picks off of Luna Lovegood……..which she is one of my favorite characters so that has something to do with it too!

I will link up reviews if I have them!

Every Heart A Doorway by Seanan McGuire

This is actually the best book on the list for my fellow Ravenclaws I think! It’s about a home for children who have visited other fantastical worlds and must learn to cope with reality again. It’s a bit of a spin on the magical school trope and I think the information provided on the other worlds is very interesting, as I think it would also be for a Ravenclaw!

The Graveyard Book by Neil Gaiman

Neil Gaiman’s books are…..weird but in a good way! Honestly I think if Luna Lovegood were to be personified as a book it’d be something written by Neil Gaiman, his writing is brilliant yet quirky and magical just like Luna.


The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern

This book is pretty much the perfect romantic, magical story. Honestly, everything about it is wondorous and well written, I think it’d be perfect for Ravenclaws!


My Lady Jane by Brodi Ashton, Cynthia Hand, & Jodi Meadows

I think the world “witty” definitely fits this book perfectly! Not only that but it’s a twist on English history so it’s the perfect combination of “wit and wisdom” making it a great read for us Ravenclaws!

Kingdom of Ash and Briars by Hannah West

This is a fantasy book with it’s own unique world building as well as having four fairy tale retellings mixed in. This is just such a wonderful book for anybody period but the world and characters are just so engrossing I can see any Ravenclaw getting lost in this one!

  1. I ADORED the night circus the writing is almost as magical as the circus itself! Every Hearts a doorway just sounds so amazing and Kingdom of Ash and Briars!? Why have I never heard of this book! The cover is stunning and 4 fairy tales weaved into the one story sounds exactly what I want. I’m not Ravenclaw but I’m diggen this who reading list ❤

    • Thank you! Every Heart A Doorway is definitely a very good book, I was surprised it took me so long to finally read it!
      Kingdom of Ash and Briars was a book I got as an ARC because I loved the thought of retellings weaved together and I personally was not disappointed! It’s very underrated and I recommend it every chance I get! 🙂

  2. I’ve always been sorted into Ravenclaw no matter what test I took so this list is for me! I’ve read both Every Heart A Doorway and My Lady Jane and would agree with their placement here – both books are just really good and quite unique in different ways. 💕

    It’s ridiculous that after years of having it on my TBR, I STILL have yet to read The Night Circus. One day, I hope. 🙈

    • Thanks Reg! It was a little hard to pinpoint what exactly could be defined as a Ravenclaw book but I figured witty or magical would fit the bill! I think of the books I listed Every Heart A Doorway is the best fit!
      I just read The Night Circus this year so you’re not alone, it took me this long after all! I only finally read it because everyone kept telling me to! 🙂

  3. Oh these all seem like such good books Heather. I’ve read and loved The Night Circus, My Lady Jane and Every Heart a Doorway, and I have both Kingdom of Ash and Briars and The Graveyard book on my to-read list. I’m sure they’re both amazing though because I’ve heard so many things about them.
    I’m not a Ravenclaw but these books still seem like perfect fits for me! 😀

    • Thank you! The couple of sci-fi books I have read just didn’t feel wholly like Ravenclaw books to me or I definitely would have added some, “Illuminae” feels more like a Gryffindor book to me and “The Diabolic” would be more Slytherin. That’s pretty much what I have read for sci-fi, at least off the top of my head! 🙂

      • No I completely agree…I’ll have to see if I can think of any…maybe Under The Never Sky, because Aria is so clever? 🤔 But that might be Gryffindor too because she’s “brave.” See, Gryff takes all our good heroines!
