Top Ten Books with a School as Setting

Top Ten Tuesday is a meme created by The Broke and the Bookish

These are my Top Ten books that have a regular high school or a boarding school as part of the setting:

1.  Dairy Queen by Catherine Gilbert Murdock - The school and college setting is more prevalent in other books of the series.  Love it!

2.  Harry Potter series by J.K. Rowling - I don't have to explain about Hogwarts, do I? 

3.  My Ex From Hell by Tellulah Darling - This book takes place at a boarding school and it's a based on Hades and Persephone's myth.  Hilarious!

4.  Obsidian by Jennifer Armentrout - Let me just say that I wouldn't be able to concentrate with Daemon poking me in the back with a pen.

5.  Storm by Brigid Kemmerer - The whole Elemental series applies here. Although, nothing good seems to happen at school for the Merrick boys :(

6.  Guitar Notes by Mary Amato - The main characters meet by exchanging notes while using the same music practice room. Such a sweet story.

7.  Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins - You didn't think that I would forget about this amazing book, right?  Boarding school in Paris, sign me up!

8.  Pushing the Limits by Katie McGarry - Such a good book!  An intense but amazing read that starts with with Echo tutoring Noah. 

9.  Deadly Cool by Gemma Halliday - I love this series!  A mix of school angst and mystery. So funny!

10. Hex Hall by Rachel Hawkins - Another magical boarding school. What'ts not to like?

You know me and I can probably keep on going, but I'm in a hurry today, so this is it!
