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!
Which Hogwarts House are you in? Are you also a fellow Ravenclaw?
If you’re a Ravenclaw what do you think of these picks?
Have you read any of these before, what did you think?
