Hello, my lovely readers! It’s back to school time and the prompt was just anything school related. I don’t know about you guys, but I go through times where, for whatever reason, I want to read books that involve school in some way because I miss it!
So, just a little background on this whole TTT thing for those who don’t know about it yet (don’t worry, it’s been going for years and I only learned about it a couple months ago!) it started over at The Broke and the Bookish and has since moved to That Artsy Reader Girl and she’s doing a wonderful job!
So, without further ado, here’s some books that involve school!
1. Nevernight by Jay Kristoff.
Definitely a different kind of school than what we’re used to, but it’s one of my favorites regardless just because it is so different.
2. Harry Potter by J.K. Rowling
I know, I know. This one is obvious but visiting this school was a huge part of my childhood with this series and I couldn’t leave it out. Hogwarts really was my home away from home when I was younger and, it kinda still is.
3. The Mediator Series by Meg Cabot
I can’t even count the number of times I read this series. I loved the moments at school too, I mean, they went to school inside a California Mission. If you guys haven’t seen the missions in person, they’re GORGEOUS old buildings. And with this taking place in Carmel, the weather is beautiful and I so badly wanted to see the school and the area. My family visited Monterey a couple years back and they wanted to drive through Carmel. My friend and I had both read this series and used my mom’s love of history to convince her to take us all to the mission. So we got to see where Suzanna went to school, and that was just such a cool moment for me.
4. The Perks of Being a Wallflower by Stephen Chbosky
Obviously school plays a big part in this one! I love Charlie and I love watching him grow over the course of the book. This is one of my absolute FAVORITE books and I adore the characters and the setting.
5. Ready Player One by Ernest Cline
If you guys read the book, you’ll know that there’s literally an entire planet in The Oasis that’s filled with school after school after school because that’s how people went to school now. I was looking forward to seeing that in the movie, but they left that part out and changed the first challenge entirely. I do love the movie as well, but it was completely different from the book.
6. Anna and the French Kiss series by Stephanie Perkins
I know you really don’t go to school with Lola a whole lot, but SOAP plays a big part connecting all of these stories and we do get to see Lola go to school a bit. But I would have LOVED to attend SOAP, the experience of doing that for high school would have been incredible!
7. Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda by Becky Albertalli
Aghhh. This is seriously one of my favorite books and I absolutely loved the school aspect. I’m actually dying to read this again before I see the movie.
8. Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell
Ugh. This book is so freaking good! And I loved watching Cath grow as she started college. I would have been her almost exactly had I gone away to college.
9. To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before by Jenny Han
Another book that I really want to watch before I finally cave and watch the movie. I’m dying to, but I want to read the book again!
10. Eleanor & Park by Rainbow Rowell
Again, another book I want to read again so badly. This was such a good book though, and I adored these characters so much.
Anyone else have any books that involve school that they absolutely love? See any of your favorites on here?
