Top Ten Tuesday: Books Set in School

Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish and is now hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl.

It's a back to school themed freebie this week, so I went with:
Books Set in School

I didn't really care for most of the books I had to read for school, so I decided to make a list (a little shy of 10) of some of my favorite books set in a school.

1. Harry Potter by J.K. Rowling

I. Just. Want. To. Go. To. HOGWARTS.

2. The Raven Cycle by Maggie Stiefvater

I heart this series so much!

3. Finishing School by Gail Carriger

Mademoiselle Geraldine's Finishing Academy for Young Ladies of Quality focuses on teaching its students fine arts such as spying, poisoning, and weapons concealment. I definitely wish those courses had been available when I was in school, lol.

4. Vampire Academy by Richelle Mead

Still one of my all-time favorite vampire series.

5. Saving Francesca by Melina Marchetta

My favorite Melina Marchetta book after her Lumatere Chronicles trilogy.

6. Shades of London by Maureen Johnson

I love how this series mixes paranormal, suspense, and humor. Hoping that there'll be a 4th book one day.

7. Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins

I don't read a lot of contemporary, but this one, set in a boarding school in Paris, was a winner.

8. A Great and Terrible Beauty by Libba Bray

I loved the blend of historical fiction/supernatural in this book, which takes place in a boarding school in Victorian England.

What books made your list this week?


  1. Ooh fun choices. HP of course ha ha, the ultimate pick! And Vampire academy I want to read!

    I just read a Maureen Johnson book recently- Truly Devious- but I haven't read anything else by her...

    1. Curious to see what you thought of Truly Devious! I've had it on my shelf for a while. Shades of London is awesome, so I hope Truly Devious will be just as good!

  2. Nice choices! Harry Potter is great. :) I've never read The Raven Boys, but I think it sounds interesting. Here is our Top Ten Tuesday

    1. I definitely recommend The Raven Boys and the whole Raven Cycle series! :D

  3. I haven't read any of the books in your post... So I have new to me books to explore!

    Here's a link to my TTT post this week: https://captivatedreader.blogspot.com/2018/08/top-ten-tuesday-back-to-schoollearning.html

    1. They're all worth checking out! Hope you decide to give some of them, or all of them lol, a try!

  4. I did a list of nonfiction books this week: http://www.brookereviewsnsweeps.com/2018/08/back-to-school-with-nonfiction/

    I had a discussion about books with a coworker this week and she was mentioning some of the books she liked, including Vampire Academy. I think I'm going to ask her to be my beta reader for my NaNoWriMo book.

    1. I put off reading Vampire Academy for a really long time because the cover just didn't do anything for me, but when I finally read it, I wished I'd picked it up sooner!
