5 books that Ravenclaws will love

Last week, I made a list of books that are made for Gryffindors, and this week I get to show off my house pride by sharing five books made for Ravenclaws. Fly, eagles, fly!

Ravenclaws value wit, learning, and wisdom, and here are five books that highlight those values.

The Other Einstein by Marie Benedict

In The Other Einstein, Mileva Maric is the only female physics student at university. She is very much dedicated to her studies, and works so hard to accelerate her career. She’s more hardworking in school than any of her classmates, mostly because as a woman, she has to be in order to be as successful as the men, but also because she’s wicked smart and wants to learn.

In class, she meets Albert Einstein. Eventually, the two hit it off, get married, and then eventually she comes up with the idea for Einstein’s relativity theory.

Because of her interest in science and learning, I’m definitely recommending this to all Ravenclaws out there.

The Loneliest Girl in the Universe by Lauren James

Romy Silvers was born on a spaceship to astronaut parents who were making their way to a new planet to establish a new home for the human race. Now, she’s the only surviving member of the crew.

Luckily, she’s wicked smart and is able to keep the ship and herself alive all on her own. That’s not something that many people could do, but she’s smart enough to do so.

Also, the author, Lauren James, studied Chemistry and Physics at university, so she’s really smart too. She also advocates for STEM education, which is something that I think is so important. So for the badass female scientist character, and the woman who created her story, this book definitely belongs on my list of Ravenclaw books.

An Abundance of Katherines by John Green

In An Abundance of Katherines, Colin has been dumped for the nineteenth time, and each time by a girl named Katherine. Fed up with being the dumpee and not the dumper, he sets out to create a math theorum that will predict the future of any relationship. If that’s not the most Ravenclaw thing ever, then I don’t know what is.

The Name of the Wind by Patrick Rothfuss

In The Name of the Wind, Kvothe is basically a child prodigy. He’s really gifted at magic and is smart enough to talk his way into admission at the university for a very small amount of money, of which he has almost none.

He’s also one of the youngest people at the university, and yet, does better in school than most of the others.

Very Ravenclaw of him.

I guess he’s also a bit of a Slytherin because of the way he uses his smarts to get things, but I’m putting him in this list instead.

Story of Your Life by Ted Chiang

Short stories count, right? If you’re unfamiliar with this one, it’s the short story that the movie Arrival is based on.

Dr. Louise Banks definitely strikes me as a Ravenclaw. Also I nerd out over linguistics too, and even almost majored in it in college, so I nerded out hard over this story.

      Yeah, he’s definitely a Ravenclaw. And I feel like it’s his least talked about book. But it was my first John Green book so it’ll always hold a special place in my heart πŸ™‚
