'Reading a book is like re-writing it for yourself. You bring to a novel, anything you read, all your experience of the world. You bring your history and you read it in your own terms.'- Angela Carter

Harry Potter MOTW #10

This is a meme hosted by me here at my blog :).The aim of this meme is to share with fellow bloggers a character, spell, chapter, object or quote from the books/ films/ J. K. Rowling herself or anything Potter related! I will be picking a topic within HP for us to focus on each week and then if anyone wants to take part feel free! All I ask is to link back here, to my blog :). There is now a full list of the topics to come here. This weeks is:

                                 Favourite Hogwarts House

R final
“By Gryffindor, the bravest were
Prized far beyond the rest;
For Ravenclaw, the cleverest
Would always be the best;
For Hufflepuff, hard workers were
Most worthy of admission;
And power-hungry Slytherin
Loved those of great ambition.”
- J. K. Rowling, Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire

Main reason? Pottermore totally put me in that house. I love it. Intelligence, wit, Luna Lovegood. There's nothing to dislike! It's founded by Rowena Ravenclaw and there definitely isn't enough attention placed on it. I like to think I'd be sorted into the house 'for real' if I had received my Hogwarts letter (blatantly had a faulty owl delivering mine). The house has its own resident ghost (as do the rest), Helena Ravenclaw aka The Grey Lady. Again, she doesn't feature heavily in the books which I think is a shame! The head of house is good ole Professor Flitwick, and their colours are blue and bronze.

Some Ravenclaw Characters:
  • Luna Lovegood
  • Cho Chang
  • Padma Patil
  • Prof. Quirrell
  • Prof. Flitwick 
  • Ollivander
  • Moaning Myrtle

  1. Just stopping by because I'm also doing Alice in Wonderland for the Classics Retold challenge. I personally am a Hufflepuff fan but I can see where you would like Ravenclaw. Think I like hufflepuff because I really would have been in there. Still waiting on my owl to deliver the news that I've been accepted though

  2. It's Ravenclaw and Slytherin for me really. I'm in awe of Ravenclaws because I could never ever be able to join that house. They're too intelligent!

  3. Slytherin, Slytherin ...! :P
    In a perfect world I'd be a Slytherclaw and our animal would be like a winged snake or something. Badass huh? :D
    Ravenclaw is my second fave even though I hate Cho Chang. :P

  4. This made me realize I hadn't taken the time to set up my Pottermore account. For Shame... doing it now!

  5. I am setting up my pottermore account now and will be doing a post also!!
