Hello everyone and welcome back to another Top Ten Tuesday!
For this weeks’ prompt, the theme was “School Freebie,” so basically create a list of ten books related to school. I decided to list books that are related to school and education in any form, such as dark academia, non-fiction books about education, and books where a lot of the major plot points revolve around the school/major school events.
- I added links to the books listed in this Top Ten Tuesday. As an affiliate with Bookshop.org, I earn a commission on if you click and buy the book with this link.
2. The short descriptions I give each book are about their connections to school/education and don’t encompass the entire story premise.
Now on that note, let’s get into this book list!
A dark academia book that takes place at Yale 🕯
A lot of the book revolves around events at school, which also is undercover as a magical school… if I remember correctly 🕵️♀️
The book revolves around a school trip gone awry 🚌
The famous story of Malala’s fight for girl’s education in Afghanistan 👩🎓
Ashley Hannigan is one of the few people at her school not interested in prom, and this tells the story of the hijinks that ensue because of it (especially as her best friend is on the prom committee) 💃
Felix is taking summer classes at his NYC art school, which has an end of the summer art exhibition 🎨
The tale of a politically-active knitting club, and the creation of an all-female mock trial team at their high school, after the unfair rejection from their school’s original mock trial team 👩⚖️
Alex is a teenager with schizophrenia, and this book incorporates a lot of coming of age events (school events, parties etc.) from this perspective 🏫
Ariel Stone is aiming to be the perfect student, but the pressure affects his mental health, and he learns that a lot of people he knows are also affected by this pressure for ✨perfection✨
This is a complicated story, as Kyoshi works at the training mansion (facility?) where the “Avatar” is being trained, but when the truth comes out about her being the Avatar, she has to pursue more unconventional training methods to fulfill her duties as Avatar 🌏
I put this in honorable mentions because I included it in my Stray Book Tag I created last week, but the premise of the book does revolve around a magical school, so how could I not list it here? 🌕
This is a loose connection, but the love interest in the book is a high school English teacher, and I remember it being pretty important to the story, so I figure I would throw it in as an honorable mention 👌
And that’s it for this week’s post! What are some of your favorite books related to school, or even books that are related to education? Let me know about them in the comments below!
