Top Ten Books Set In Schools

This week, we get to pick our favorite books set in any setting we want!  There are so many possibilities but there’s something about the school setting that I love, so that’s what I went with!

  1. Harry Potter.  I’m not going to lie…I just really wanted to include Harry Potter, and books in a school setting were much more common than the UK.  Is that weird?  Either way, I still want to go to Hogwarts.  (But I’ll also settle for Pigfarts).
  2. This Is Not A Test by Courtney Summers.  I liked This Is Not A Test for a lot of different reasons, but taking shelter in a school during the zombie apocalypse is interesting and different enough to get my attention!
  3. Hex Hall by Rachel Hawkins.  A boarding school for magical delinquents?  Totally fun!
  4. Etiquette And Espionage by Gail Carriger.  It’s a steampunk boarding school.  Enough said.
  5. Wander Dust by Michelle Warren.  The cool thing about Wander Dust is that it’s set in a school for teams of students who travel through time.  They all have their own abilities, and I love that everyone has to work together so they can make the most of their abilities.
  6. Anna And The French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins.  I just loved Anna And The French Kiss, and part of it is because it’s a boarding school in Paris.  What’s not to love?
  7. Drowning Instinct by Ilsa J. Bick.  There are some dark and twisted things in Drowning Instinct.  A lot of the book takes place at Jenna’s school, and you’re watching things unfold, wondering how things would have turned out for Jenna if things didn’t lead her to her new school.  And what would have happened had she been a regular student…
  8. Princess Diaries by Meg Cabot.  Mia, dealing with typical teenager stuff while also dealing with princess lessons.  I also love seeing the glimpses of how her classmates react to Mia being a princess.
  9. The Gemma Doyle Trilogy by Libba Bray.  It’s set in an all-girls prep school set in the Victorian-era.  Historical fiction is pretty awesome, and when it’s set in an all-girls school where a few of the girls happen to come across magical realms, you get a series that that totally gets my attention!
  10. Take A Bow by Elizabeth Eulberg.  It’s set in a performing arts school, which is a school setting I don’t read much of (actually, i think this is the one of the very few) , but I loved Esme’s story and the focus on music and life as a student at a performing arts school.
