Top Five Wednesday: Characters that Embody my Hogwarts House

Top 5 Wednesday is a weekly meme created by Lainey from gingerreadslainey and now hosted by Sam from ThoughtsOnTomes. You can find out more at Godreads group.

This week’s theme is ‘characters that embody your Hogwarts house’ and seeing as I’m a proud Ravenclaw, I’ll be writing about the characters I think would be fellow Ravenclaws.

(1) Lazlo Strange (Strange the Dreamer by Laini Taylor)

Lazlo is definitely a Ravenclaw! He’s obsessed about books and reading and he taught himself a language that no one else knew from books and ancient receipts.

(2) Celaena and Dorian (Throne of Glass series by Sarah J Maas)

Both Celaena and Dorian are bookworms and they are really smart so I think they would probably be Ravenclaws although Celaena could also be a Gryffindor.

(3) Nikolai, David and Nadia (Grishaverse by Leigh Bardugo)

David, Nadia and Nikolai are nerds and are always inventing things so I think they’d end up in Ravenclaw.

(4) Kitay (The Poppy War by R. F. Kuang)

Kitay is so smart and he even has a photographic memory (which is something I wish I had). He’d be in Ravenclaw for sure!

(5) Baru (The Traitor Baru Cormorant by Seth Dickinson)

Baru is really clever but she’s also a bit scary… I’d be scared to be in the same house as her. She could be in Ravenclaw but she could also be a Slytherin.


I ended up with more than five characters but oh well. What’s your Hogwarts house? Which book characters embody it? Let me know in the comments!
