Top Ten Tuesday – Boarding Schools

Posted August 16, 2016 by Bonnie in Top Ten Tuesday / 5 Comments

Honestly, the amount of books set in Boarding schools is astounding. There’s just something about a story set in a boarding school that produces the most fascinating of adventures… some good, some bad. These are (some of) my favorites. Clearly I couldn’t decide on just ten. (In no particular order because I couldn’t decide on a ranking either.)

The Secret History by Donna Tartt [Purchase]
Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone (Harry Potter, #1) by J.K. Rowling [Purchase]
Harry Potter and the Cursed Child by J.K. Rowling, Jack Thorne, John Tiffany [Purchase]
Never Let Me Go by Kazuo Ishiguro [Purchase]
A Great and Terrible Beauty (Gemma Doyle, #1) by Libba Bray [Purchase]
School Spirits by Rachel Hawkins [Purchase]
Hex Hall (Hex Hall, #1) by Rachel Hawkins [Purchase]
A Little Princess by Frances Hodgson Burnett [Purchase]
The Lightning Thief (Percy Jackson and the Olympians, #1) by Rick Riordan [Purchase]
Vampire Academy (Vampire Academy, #1) by Richellle Mead [Purchase]
White Cat (Curse Workers, #1) by Holly Black [Purchase]
Jellicoe Road by Melina Marchetta [Purchase]
The Nightmare Affair (The Arkwell Academy, #1) by Mindee Arnett [Purchase]
Soulbound (Legacy of Tril, #1) by Heather Brewer [Purchase]
The Dead House by Dawn Kurtagich [Purchase]
The School for Good and Evil (The School for Good and Evil, #1) by Soman Chainani [Purchase]

Even with having all these books about boarding schools, there are still a ton I have yet to get to.

What books set in boarding schools would you recommend?
