TOP TEN TUESDAY: My Top Ten Books With A School Setting

Top 10 Tuesday is hosted at The Broke and the Bookish. Today’s topic is My Top Ten Books With A School Setting.

School is a HUGE part of people’s lives between ages 5-18 (and even longer if you work at a school) so I always like to get books about school. From funny stories to poignant ones and stories set at boarding school to ones set in public school, books about school can help us learn how to deal with all sorts of things, and laugh in the process. Here are some of my favorites!

  • Sideways Stories from Wayside School by Louis Sachar
  • The Chocolate War by Robert Cormier
  • The Disreputable History of Frankie Landau-Banks by E. Lockhart
  • The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian by Sherman Alexie
  • The Harry Potter Series by J.K. Rowling
  • Out of My Mind by Sharon M. Draper
  • The Name of the Star by Maureen Johnson
  • Wonder by R.J. Palacio
  • Thirteen Reasons Why by Jay Asher
  • Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins


  1. The Harry Potter series made my list too this week. Great list.
