This week’s topic: Books For Your Hogwarts House
–Show your Hogwarts House Pride, and tell us the top 5 books that represent your house!
This is difficult… When I first did the Pottermore quiz, I ended up in Slytherin. Kinda made sense? I guess? I did not go on for a long time, so my account was deleted, but I wanted to find out my patronus or something, so I took the quiz again… only to get into Gryffindor. Not a bad thing, but totally not me. So, I did it again and again only to get every house UGH! I got Ravenclaw twice though before getting another one twice, so that is my house… but I still feel a huge connection to Slytherin.
I’m still trying to get used to my house being Ravenclaw (which I’ve been told makes more sense for me), so please, take the below books with a grain of salt ^_^
Also, these books are more of books I’d recommend to people in Ravenclaw instead of which represent the house.
Truly an amazing historical fiction novel. I absolutely loved this one. Why Ravenclaw? Because it does give some history one can learn, Besides the history though, there is much to learn from this book.
Okay, yes, this might pass off as a Slytherin book too because of how the characters are, but I think the time and dedication Citra put in to what she does in order to learn how to be a scythe and about her former teacher show she would be in Ravenclaw.
Another possible Slytherin book this time because the characters would definitely fit in there. I picked this book for Ravenclaw because it is a damn good mystery. I think those in Ravenclaw would love mysteries to put their knowledge to the test — see if they can guess the villain and the motive.
I picked this one because one of Ravenclaw’s traits is Creativity. I think that gives those in the house a love for different and new ideas. This is definitely different and new.
It also brings up Sci-Fi aspects that really aren’t too far away from where we are now, which might get them thinking 😉
Kate Daniels series by Ilona Andrews
Sure, Kate could totally go into Gryffindor, but with her intelligence, street smarts, memory, and how she presents herself as an individual, I think she could also be a Ravenclaw, or be a Ravenclaw role model lol. She reminds me a bit of Hermione, who I feel could have gone either Gryffindor or Ravenclaw.
I also think the mythology thrown around in the book would be interesting to those in the house, give them another resource to use for learning (haha) and show just how useful their learning can be in a non-academic way.
And because I can’t help myself, a few books I’d pick for Slytherin.
What do you think of my choices? What books would you recommend to your housemates or other houses?
Comment below and let me know~ ^_^
