To Be A Ravenclaw hosted by A Million More Pages on Goodreads.
A challenge based on the characteristics of a Ravenclaw student. I will not try to get the extra bonus point.
February Challenge - 2 month challenge - February 1-March 31,2015
What it Takes to Be Part of Ravenclaw House
Ravenclaw House prizes learning, wisdom, wit, and intellect in its members. Thus, many Ravenclaws tend to be academically motivated and talented students. Ravenclaws also pride themselves in being original in their ideas, and methods. It's not unusual to find Ravenclaw students practicing especially different types of magic that other houses might shun. Students in Ravenclaw can also be quirky and possess unusual intellectual interests. Ravenclaws generally accept and celebrate these eccentrics.
