T5T: Books for Ravenclaws

Hello, my darling readers!
It’s Tuesday, that means it’s time for a T5T post!
It’s hosted by Bionic Book Worm and is quite simple: check out the topic and write a post with your picks.
For this month, we get a very special treat: for the first time ever, there is a theme! So all four T5T posts for February are related to the Hogwarts houses.
Every test I ever took confirmed that I would be sorted into Ravenclaw. So, I’m really excited to pick a bunch of books for them this week!

#1 Anything by Rick Riordan:

Assuming that the Ravenclaw kids are anything like me, they’ll love books by Rick Riordan. Not only are his novel both funny and heart-breaking. My favorite aspect is that his books teach you something. Whether you pick up the series about Percy Jackson, Magnus Chase or the Kane Siblings, you are bound to find out something new about Greek, Roman, Norse or Egyptian Mythology. Just perfect for those curious Ravenclaws!

#2 American Gods by Neil Gaiman:

This goes down the same road as the books by Rick Riordan. American Gods is fascinating but not only for the interesting plot and characters. What kept me hooked were the bits of information on so many different folktales, on Gods worshipped all over the world. I learned so many new things, I was sad to see the book end.

#3 A Study in Scarlet by Arthur Conan Doyle:

Ravenclaws are analytical, they like logic and riddles. What better way to quench the first for something that keeps your mind racing than to mingle with the most famous detective of all time?
To be honest, I am not the biggest fan of Sherlock Holmes as many of the stories I read were a bit too easy to see through. A Ravenclaw might solve the crimes within a heartbeat but still appreciate the reasoning and the analytical skills presented.

#4 The Classics:

If anybody in Hogwarts would care to read the classics like Dickens, Shakespeare or Bronte, I bet everything it’s one of the Ravenclaws. I’m sure with their drive to acquire the knowledge they’d burn through the famous tomes written by people long gone. Furthermore, I am more than certain that talk in quotes from those books all day long, annoying people from every other house as they would have no idea why the Ravenclaws giggle over “Lasciate ogni speranza, voi ch’entrate!” when entering the dungeons for a class with Snape.

#5 The Good Girls Revolt by Lynn Povich:

I’d also peg the Ravenclaws as non-fiction readers. While I don’t read too much non-fiction myself, this was one of the few books that really resonated with me. The true story of women revolting for more rights at work would inspire any of the witty and independent girls and boys in Ravenclaw.

  1. Number one yes for Uncle Rick’s books! I fell in love with mythology and I absolutely will pick up anything with myths on them so I’ll most likely be picking up Neil Gaiman’s books too. Sherlock Holmes definitely is a good pick and other mystery books too because they really are thought-provoking. This actually is a nice list! 🙂

      • Exactly! I hope you like the Magnus Chase books – so many great and funny things there!
        When it comes to Stardust, I think I had my hopes up far too high. I had seen the film and expected the book to top everything – so it just wasn’t what I wanted it to be.
