Hey Guys! This month’s Top Five Tuesday topics are based on the houses from Harry Potter. Each house has its own set of traits that determine which house you will be in. I love this topic because even if you haven’t read the books (or just haven’t finished them all, guilty!) you can still do this topic you just need to know the traits for each house. This week’s house is Ravenclaw
Ravenclaw Traits –
They are analytical, intelligent, logical yet impractical, curious, inquisitive, creative, witty, wise, interested in understanding things, cynics, fond of intellectual discussion, introspective, independent, wordy, and self-entertaining. They observe rather than participate, are fond of learning for the sake of learning, and good at school (or really anything that they have an interest in!)
The goal is to pick five books that you think that particular house might like to read or if characters from that book would fit into that house.
Top 5 Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by the lovely Shanah @BionicBookWorm. Each week we respond to that week’s topic and link back to her page. Go check out her page to join in!
I think Ravenclaw would like The Evolution of Jeremy Warsh because I think the main character, Jeremy, would be in Ravenclaw if he were part of the Wizarding World. He is very curious and creative. He wants to understand things and he’s funny. After his grandpa dies, Jeremy loses interest in just about everything. One day he decides to start drawing again. He starts working out and he meets someone, making Jeremy question lots of things.
The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time would be a perfect book, I think, for Ravenclaw. Christopher (the main character) is autistic which makes him very logical, but not always practical. Christopher is very good at math and loves reading Sherlock Holmes. He uses this to help him figure out what happened to his neighbor’s dog. I think he would fit right into Ravenclaw!
I think Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children would be another good book for the Ravenclaw house because I think it would make them very curious. I know I was when I read it. Each of the children in this book has a unique ability and I think Ravenclaw students would enjoy learning about each of the children through reading this book.
I chose The Perks of Being a Wallflower because the students in the Ravenclaw house like to understand things, are curious, and they like to observe but not really participate which basically defines being a wallflower.
The main character in Love Letters to the Dead writes letter after letter about her life since she started high school after her sister died analyzing her thoughts and the death of her sister. She wants to know what happened and that’s what I think she would fit in with Ravenclaw.
