Top 5 (books set at school) Tuesday

Ah, school. Where you uhh read and uhh cry about Maths, right? Unless you actually like Maths, and to that I say you are amazing.

As usual, Meeghan @ Meeghan Reads now leads Top 5 Tuesday and prepare to go back to school with her here!


Vampire Academy by Richelle Mead (GR/SG) – The first season (because YES it will have a redemption arc) is coming out in September so it’s prime time for a reread! It’s coming to Peacock and Peacock BETTER source it out to Netflix (in countries other than the States – as Peacock is a US streaming service) like they did with One of Us is Lying PLEASE. – The story that kicked off the international #1 bestselling Vampire Academy series is NOW A MAJOR MOTION PICTURE. St. Vladimir’s Academy isn’t just any boarding school–it’s a hidden place where vampires are educated in the ways of magic and half-human teens train to protect them. Rose Hathaway is a Dhampir, a bodyguard for her best friend Lissa, a Moroi Vampire Princess. They’ve been on the run, but now they’re being dragged back to St. Vladimir’s–the very place where they’re most in danger. . . .

Rose and Lissa become enmeshed in forbidden romance, the Academy’s ruthless social scene, and unspeakable nighttime rituals. But they must be careful lest the Strigoi–the world’s fiercest and most dangerous vampires–make Lissa one of them forever.

Carry On by Rainbow Rowell (GR/SG) – I still haven’t read the last book (and luckily I haven’t seen any spoilers but I really want to finish the trilogy by the end of the year 😄 – Simon Snow is the worst chosen one who’s ever been chosen.

That’s what his roommate, Baz, says. And Baz might be evil and a vampire and a complete git, but he’s probably right.

Half the time, Simon can’t even make his wand work, and the other half, he sets something on fire. His mentor’s avoiding him, his girlfriend broke up with him, and there’s a magic-eating monster running around wearing Simon’s face. Baz would be having a field day with all this, if he were here—it’s their last year at the Watford School of Magicks, and Simon’s infuriating nemesis didn’t even bother to show up.

Carry On is a ghost story, a love story, a mystery and a melodrama. It has just as much kissing and talking as you’d expect from a Rainbow Rowell story—but far, far more monsters. 

How To Be Remy Cameron by Julian Winters (GR/SG/My Review) – This is such a cute read! Definitely one if you like a sweet book that you want to hug! – Everyone on campus knows Remy Cameron. He’s the out-and-gay, super-likable guy that people admire for his confidence. The only person who may not know Remy that well is Remy himself. So when he is assigned to write an essay describing himself, he goes on a journey to reconcile the labels that people have attached to him, and get to know the real Remy Cameron.

The Princess Diaries by Meg Cabot (GR/SG/My Review) – Between this series and the Georgia Nicholson series – I think all of us wanted to keep a diary 😂 I bet barely any of us actually managed to keep at it. As much as I loved the movies (even though it was very different – they wanted to kill off the dad to give Julie Andrews a bigger role – very understandable as I would absolutely kill off a character to get more Julie Andrews 😆 – The first book in the #1 New York Times bestselling Princess Diaries series by Meg Cabot.

Mia Thermopolis is pretty sure there’s nothing worse than being a five-foot-nine, flat-chested freshman, who also happens to be flunking Algebra. Is she ever in for a surprise.

First Mom announces that she’s dating Mia’s Algebra teacher. Then Dad has to go and reveal that he is the crown prince of Genovia. And guess who still doesn’t have a date for the Cultural Diversity Dance?

The Princess Diaries is the first book in the beloved, bestselling series that inspired the feature film starring Anne Hathaway and Julie Andrews. 

First Term at Malory Towers by Enid Blyton (GR/SG) – Malory Towers was everything when I was a kid lol. I’m now going through Blyton’s works. Starting with this series and Famous Five – which has over 20 books 😂 But luckily the audios are like 4 hours so they go quickly. – Darrell Rivers begins her happy life at Malory Towers two terms later than the other girls, but she soon makes firm friends with Sally, the steady one, and the adoring Mary Lou. 


There’s a lot of books set at school/have a school as part of the plot that I could’ve added here but yanno… They’re on ‘the list’ to be read down the line 😆

Come and tell me about which books set at school you really liked/want to read soon! Maybe we’ll have similar tastes (not that I need any more books 😂).
