Top Ten Books With a School-like Setting
1. The Harry Potter Series – Hogwarts. Do I have to say more? Although Hogwarts isn’t the only setting, it’s one of the main settings and it is a school so…2. The Secret School – This book was one of my favorites around 4ish years ago (I’m still pretty young!). I still love it now, though. This is a MG but I had to add it to the list.
3. The School for Good and Evil series – I honestly don’t know if this is MG or YA, but either way, this series is amazing! I love it and Soman Chainani as a great author.
4. The Finishing School series – Okay, I confess I haven’t read this series before, but I heard it’s really great. Also, I own the first and second book and I hope to read it soon
5. Percy Jackson and the Olympians – I guess Camp Half-Blood isn’t really a school, but it’s kinda sortaish like a school? Fine, I couldn’t really think of anything else and a camp is kinda similar to a school (not).
6. The Black Mage series – If you’ve never heard of this series/read it before, then you’re in for a treat. I seriously love this series and will always love it. Plus, the last book, Last Stand, and the novella, Nonheir, come out (hopefully) in a few months!!
7. The Magisterium series – I’ve only read the first book in this series, but it was pretty good. I seriously need to catch up and read the second book.
8. The Spy School series – I haven’t read this series yet (and it’s MG) but it’s gotten great reviews on Goodreads and it seems like a pretty cool series.
9. The Mysterious Benedict Society series – I read this series in third or fourth grade (3, 4 years ago?) and seriously loved it! I don’t completely remember what it was about, but I know I loved it and maybe someday I could do a reread of it.
10. The Princess Academy series – I haven’t read the third book, but my favorite in this series is the first book. Also, Shannon Hale has written one of my favorite series, The Books of Bayern.
