Top Ten Tuesday | Books & Schools

Hosted weekly by That Artsy Reader Girl.

Happy Tuesday!

It's that time of year, full of dread and excitement, again: Summer is ending, school is starting. Personally, I'd much rather read about school than actually go to school (alas, that can't be helped right now). With all their drama, school stories can be a lot of fun to read—especially when set outside the halls of a traditional school, as the following books are.

Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins 
The Broken Girls by Simone St. James

Ender's Game by Orson Scott Card
Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone by J.K. Rowling

A Little Princess by Frances Hodgson Burnett
Nightmare Academy by Frank Peretti

Princess Academy by Shannon Hale
Red Rising by Pierce Brown

The School for Good and Evil by Soman Chainani
A Separate Peace by John Knowles
