We have been having fun with Top Ten Tuesday, so we decided we will do one every week. This bookish meme was hosted by The Broke and the Bookish, and has been going since June 2010! Since last January Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl.
This week’s topic is a back to school freebie. As long as it has to do with school, it fits this week’s topic. I decided to talk about books at school. What books take place at school? Or where the characters are still students and a lot of time is spent at school. That can play a big part of a book!
1. Harry Potter
This shouldn’t shock anyone. If you’ve been following the blog, you know Isabelle and I are major fans. These books take place at Hogwarts. While reading these books, I wish I could’ve gone to school there. It’s definitely time for a reread soon. Or at least ime for another movie marathon. I need my Harry Potter fix.
Cath starts her frehman year of college and not everything goes how she expects it to go. Her twin sister is acting weird, her roommate is weird, writing isn’t what she thought it would be. Something that won’t change though, is her love for Simon Snow. I loved Cath as a fangirl and she is so relatable. Fangirl is still a favorite of mine.
3. Carry On
As a fan of Fangirl, I definitely needed this book. We read about Cath’s love of this series and I think it’s awesome the author gave us an actual book in this world. It’s compared with Harry Potter and in a lot of ways it’s kind of a rip off, haha. Carry On is still so much fun though! I was sad when we were told there would only be one book, but the author surprised us with a sequel. We have to wait until 2020, but at least it’s on its way!
4. The Black Witch
Elloren grew up in this middle of nowhere, so she doesn’t know much of the world. Only what has been told to her. When she goes to the university, her whole world turns upside down. Everything she was told doesn’t seem to make sense anymore. The Iron Flower is coming out soon and I can’t wait to get my hands on it. The Black Witch is amazing!
5. One of Us is Lying
When a student dies during detention, all the other students there are suspects. We follow their lives and keep getting closer to the truth. This is definitely a book with a lot of school drama and secrets. Most of it takes place at their school. I was trying to figure everything out until the end. Unfortunately the ending was disappointing.
6. Anna and the French Kiss
Anna is in Paris for a year of high school. That has to be an amazing experience and I loved reading about her journey. Her romance with Etienne made this book a lot of fun as well. The other two books in this trilogy were a lot of fun as well, but Anna will always be my favorite.
7. Getting Schooled
This is such a different book than the rest on my list so far, but this is one of my favorite romances this year. I loved it because they were both very passionate teachers and this played a big part in their story. Not only the romance that was developing between them, but the things they were doing to help the students. That was just as important to them.
This book takes place at a boarding school. I was so impressed with this book. Tradition shows us really how this world works in many ways. When you have money at a schoo like this you basically get away with anything. These students will never understand the students who need the grants and other things the boarding school can offer. Tradition is a book with an important message.
9. A Prom to Remember
The seniors in this book are planning their prom and are stuck with the theme A Prom to Remember. Their school had too many glasses printed with that slogan. This was such a fun read. We got to read from all of the characters’ point of views. In the end, it really was a prom to rememeber.
10. People Like Us
Last but definitely not least, People Like Us. A boarding school mystery. A student ends up dead, but who is the murderer? Another book I couldn’t put down and I didn’t figure out who it was until near the end. I don’t read a lot of thrillers, but this one is so worth it!
So these are the ten books I can think of that take place at school. What is your favorite book that takes place at a school? Also, feel free to leave your links, I would love to look at your list!
