It’s been a while since I’ve been in school, but for all the kids in my area, school’s out for summer. I’m not always a fan of the school setting trope, but I certainly don’t avoid books just on that point. Plus, there are plenty of types of schools that can be a part of a story. Magic schools, religious schools, military schools, normal schools. Lots of schools to attend in books. Here are five books set in a variety of schools:
Top 5 Tuesday is hosted by Meeghan Reads
by J.K. Rowling
Hogwarts is probably the most well-known fictional school.
by Mark Lawrence
The Convent of Sweet Mercy, where little girls are trained to be killers by blade and magic.
by Faith Erin Hicks
A university student discovers zombies appearing around campus.
by Orson Scott Card
Battle School trains children in military tactics and simulated battles.
Before I Fall
by Lauren Oliver
After she dies, Samantha Kingston wakes up in the morning and re-lives Cupid Day in high school on repeat.
I’m not sure I’d want to go to any of these schools, but they make for great stories.
