Top Ten Tuesday: Back to School


Top Ten Tuesday: Top Ten Books in Academic Settings
Honestly, the topic was top ten books in "x" setting, but as the start of school is just around the corner, I chose the academic setting.

Forgotten

One of my favorite reads set in an "everyday" academic setting a.k.a. high school. :)

Great suspenseful story in a boarding school setting!
Meant to Be

Fun, romantic story in a study-abroad setting. :)
The DUFF: Designated Ugly Fat Friend
by Kody Keplinger

Love this contemporary tale told from the "ugly duckling's" perspective. A must-read for any girls who's felt like an outcast in high school.
The Raven Boys (The Raven Cycle #1)
by Maggie Stiefvater
Add on Goodreads

This enticing novel is told in a boarding school setting, through a male voice. A definite must read!
Bittersweet
by Sarah Ockler

This sweet tale is told from a more after-school-sports perspective. I absolutely adore Ockler's writing and highly recommend her works!!!
All These Things I've Done (Birthright #1)
by Gabrielle Zevin

This sinful story is told in a private school setting with the mobster family life thrown in for flair!
The Social Code (The Start-Up #1)
by Sadie Hayes
Add on Goodreads

This scandalous tale is told in a college setting. So far, it has been one of my favorite books of the year!
Also Known As

Also Known As is a fun tale full of espionage and adventure with a private school setting.

Yes, another Benway book! If you haven't read them, why the heck not?! This is by far my favorite Benway novel set in high school! You should absolutely read it!




What are some of your top setting for stories?

  1. Great list! I haven't read any of these! Although have been in two minds about picking up The Raven Boys. Would you recommend it?

  5. Great list! I've either read or have most of these on my TBR list. I also love the topic, I thought of doing boarding schools for mine but then didn't think I would be able to come up with enough books.

    Thanks for stopping by my TTT post!

  6. OMG, The DUFF and All These Things I've Done are both my favorite books ever!

    But I'm lacking when it comes to reading books set in a school setting. I'll be reading Meant to Be this summer though!

  9. I love books set in academic settings so I'm definitely going to be checking out some more of these. I've actually only read 3 of the books you listed so the rest are getting moved to the top of my TBR. =)
