Top Ten: Back To School Books

Top Ten is an original feature/weekly meme created here at
The Broke and the Bookish that features a great bookish top ten every week.

My Top Ten Books in a School Setting: 
Its back to school time and  I love boarding school books. I am not sure why but I do. I love to read about the history of the school, design of the school, types of kids in this school. I just love them. So here are my favorite boarding school books.

2. The School For Good and Evil by Soman Chainani

3. I'd Tell You I Love You, But Then I'd Have to Kill You  by Ally Carter (and all other books in the series)

6. Born Wicked by  Jessica Spotswood

7. The Tragedy Paper by Elizabeth LeBan

10. and of course... Harry Potter

  1. The Ally Carter books are surprisingly good, I think. (Of course, Harry Potter is the best. :P) I was really happy with them and was not expecting to be that impressed. Great list, thanks for sharing!

  2. Harry Potter is the best! I really want to read A Study In Charlotte, it sounds so good!

  3. So many of these books are on my TBR! The Study in Charlotte and Charm and Strange just to name a few! I loved The Name of the Star and this post reminds me that I really need to finish that series!

  5. Love, love, love the Gallagher Girls series! And all of Ally Carter's work, to be honest. A Study in Charlotte has been on my TBR for awhile, so I may just have to pick it up. Great list!

  6. Ooohh!! NICE topic choice! Especially number 9 & 10! ;)

    Have a GREAT day!

  7. I love boarding school books too, but the only one of these I've read is HP! Crazy, right? I really want to read the School for Good & Evil series, though.
