TTT #251 | Books That Take Place at a (Boarding) School

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 January 2018 Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl.

This week’s topic is completed series I wish had more books. I’m really bad at actually finishing series, so I decided to take a look at next week’s topic which is a school freebie. So I’m going to talk about ten books that take place at a boarding school that are on my TBR. That’s one of my favorite settings, so let’s take a look!

Plain Bad Heroines – Emily M. Danforth

Plain Bad Heroines is a book I bought last year and it’s a big one. I think that’s a reason why I haven’t read this one yet, but 2022 is the year of big books. So it’s time! The story starts in 1902, but pops up again a century later when a book releases about the history of the school. I’m intrigued!

All These Beautiful Strangers – Elizabeth Klehfoth

All These Beautiful Strangers has been on my shelf for four years. It’s really time for me to sit down and read this book, haha. Family secrets and a game to get into a secret society are two things that caught my attention.

A Lesson in Vengeance – Victoria Lee

Witches, an ivy covered school, and a mystery? That’s all I need to know to want to pick up A Lesson in Vengeance.

All the Little Lies – S.J. Sylvis

S.J. Sylvis has written quite a few books I’ve really enjoyed, but I haven’t read her English Prep series. All the Little Lies is the first book This is a bully romance though and those tend to be hit or miss for me.

Don’t Breathe a Word – Jordyn Taylor

Don’t Breathe a Word follows two timelines at a boarding school and I love when books do that. Add a secret society and you get my attention. Our main character tries to solve a sixty year old mystery.

The New Girl – Jesse Q. Sutanto

The New Girl is a book I bought a couple of months ago. When our main character goes to a new school and sees a girl being forcefully carried away she wonders what’s going on. Apparently this school isn’t everything it seems. I loved Jesse Q. Sutanto’s book Dial A for Aunties, so I’m excited to try this YA book.

They Wish They Were Us – Jessica Goodman

A murder mystery set at an exclusive prep school? That’s something I’ll definitely read. Isabelle wasn’t really impressed by this book, but I’m still really curious about They Wish They Were Us.

Seton Girls – Charlene Thomas

Seton Girls doesn’t release until next week, but I was very lucky to get an e-arc and I really need to read it this weekend. This school is obsessed with the football team and thank their success to Seton’s Girls. But what do they do?

This May End Badly – Samantha Markum

This May End Badly is another book I’ve been really looking forward to. It has fake dating, friendship, and I’m thinking learning a lot about yourself. The main character is expecting to win the long known feud between her school and another academy. This all changes when the schools merge together.

XOXO – Axie Oh

I bought this book last year and XOXO is such a gorgeous book. Even so under the dust jacket. Following your dreams and love can definitely get in each other’s way. This book sounds right up my alley.
