you can smell it dying. school is starting. fall is coming. depending on your school situation your social life is either about to die or double in size.
mine has mostly died.
but I’m trying to have blog posts up for you guys so here’s me linking up with TOP TEN TUESDAY (hosted by the broke and the bookish)
so this week is a freebie but it’s back to school themed. you can do anything as long as it’s school-themed. obviously I decided to do books with a school setting or that happen during the school year.
1. HARRY POTTER
If you didn’t see this one coming you obviously haven’t been here very long. like literally any other sane person who has read these, I LOVE THEM. also they take place at a magical school! with magic! and school!
2. THE GALLAGHER GIRLS
My gosh, you guys. these books are each short and sweet and wonderful and sarcastic and original and just so, so good. They are all such fast reads that when I first read them I stayed up all night and finished them ALL.
3. THE RITHMATIST
This whole book takes place at a school! a cool school with magical sections. THE MAGIC SYSTEM IN THIS BOOK IS JUST THE BEST. also the school is awesome and the characters are wonderful and the writing is g o r g e o u s.
4. PRINCESS ACADEMY
This book is kind of like the Selection? the general idea is VERY similar. but it’s different, because there isn’t a ton of romance and there’s more adventure and the second book gets political and honestly it’s like a mild version with different elements? it’s like the same base idea executed differently.
5. PS, I LIKE YOU
OH COME ON. I COULDN’T WRITE THIS POST AND NOT INCLUDE THIS BOOK. because one of the main settings is school. and it’s amazing. and I’ve wanted to read a book like this for SO FREAKING LONG AND LOOK HERE IT IS AHHHHH. it’s literally the best.
6. ALSO KNOWN AS
another book I just couldn’t make this list without. this book is perfection. Sarcasm! Romance! Adventure! Spies! oh, and it centers around a teenage spy having to go to high school for the first time. UM YES.
7. DIPLOMATIC IMMUNITY
This centers around students! At school! also it’s cute and sweet and wonderful and about journalist and a swoony guy and coming of age and romance and it’s just wonderful.
8. THE SECRET OF A HEART NOTE
This is one of the ones on this list that takes place during, but not mostly at, school. This one is swoony, gorgeous, and will leave you with butterflies! Definitely a feeling you need while YOU try and survive school.
9. TO ALL THE BOYS I’VE LOVED BEFORE
This is adorable and wonderful and centers around family and love and afnwkejnfclkjwq. It also takes place during the school year!
10. PIVOT POINT
HEY GUYS THIS BOOK IS AWESOME. it’s so different! it’s about a community of people who can use their whole brains and so they have cool superpowers. also one of them falls in love with a normal person! DRAMA SACRIFICE AND SWOONING ENSUE.
