Today’s Topic is: top ten books that take place in a setting of your choice.
So I start student teaching in 2 weeks. Gah! So I’ve got school on the brain. That is why I’ve chosen to do: Top ten books that take place in a school
I know this is probably going to be an extremely popular choice, but 5 of my ALL-time favorites fit into this category.
Obviously. Is there any school cooler than Hogwarts?
So much love for this book that takes place in a Parisian boarding school.
Why, yes, I am aware that this book makes, like, every list I make. It’s because Frankie is the coolest girl ever.Election

This may just be my favorite book of all time. It’s about a high school election for student body president and it is amazing. Seriously, if you haven’t read this book you need to remedy that immediately.

I absolutely love–love–this book that follows a girl through her four years at an east coast boarding school. It’s amazing and I cannot recommend it enough.
I really enjoyed this book that follows 8 girls (2 from each grade in a high school who made the annual hottest and ugliest list) in the week leading up to Homecoming.
This book about a 14 year-old junior at a Washington prep school is hilarious and touching.
This book is kind of hard to sum up in a sentence or two. It’s about a girl who is new to a New England prep school who starts investigating the school’s secret society. The time alternates between this story line and that of one of her teachers when he attended the same high school in which he now teaches.
Sisters Annie and Fia, who both have special abilities, are invited to attend a special school that immediately turns sinister. You either love or hate this one. I loved it.
This awesome parallel worlds book takes place in not one, but two, high schools.
So which location did you chose? I’d love to check out your lists, so link me up!
