Top Ten Books Set in Boarding Schools
I’m a huge fan of books set in boarding schools, so that is my pick for the ‘X Setting’. I just love the drama that happens when there are no parents around. The secret parties, the midnight feasts, the sneaking around after dark, the teachers that turn into werewolves… Everything.
How could this not top them all? The Philosopher’s Stone is probably THE book that kicked off this crazy obsession of mine.
Hex Hall is just so funny! While I do prefer Demonglass to this one, Hex Hall is the only book in the trilogy that is actually set in a boarding school for the majority of the time.
So you know how I was talking about that teenage drama that I love? This is one of those series that is full of it, and it’s so addictive. It’s not even that good, I just enjoy all the bitching and name calling.
If we’re going to be technical, this is really set in a prison, but whatever. It still counts.
While the boarding school aspect of this book isn’t all that prominent, I did love this one and I just had to include it in my list. The whole crime lord thing was a huge draw for me.
Not only is this set in a boarding school, we actually have no idea why the teenagers are there, and they’re not allowed to leave.
Were you waiting for this to show up on the list? I bet you were.
IT’S SO CUTE AND FLUFFY I WANT TO DIE.
Not my favourite, but it’s interesting and I liked the paranormal stuff. The boarding school in London was just a bonus.
10. Cross My Heart and Hope to Spy by Ally Carter
A boarding school for female teenage spies! You can’t do better than that. I picked the second book in this series instead of the first because I enjoyed it a lot more. Mostly because of the new guy who was introduced *wink wink*.
