Hello, all!!!

*Pushy waves*

Welcome to the latest installment of Super 6 Sunday!


Super Six Sunday is an original bookish meme hosted at Bewitched Bookworms and inspired by “Top Ten Tuesday” from The Broke and The Bookish. Check out the weekly schedule of themes here.

Super 6 Books Set In A School

I’m sticking with my school theme this week and sharing my top 6 favorite books set in a school!

sss 1 harry potter

Harry Potter’s a no brainer.  Hogwarts is by far the school anyone would every want to go to.

sss 2 carrie

If there’s one person who knows how to tap into the the horror of being a kid it’s Stephen King.  Carrie got me ALL sorts of wound up and spooked.  And I would never want to go to school with the kids she went with!  Yikes!

sss 3 13 reasons

This book was so sad!!  And unfortunately so believable.  Being a teen ager can be so angsty and rough.

sss 4 the chocolate wars

For Catholic school kids in the US, selling chocolate is a rite of Fall.  Robert Cormier took it to an intense level, using it as a pretext for a competition of wills that was fascinating to read!

sss 5 unraveling

Janelle mixes being a typical high school kid with having a mind meant for the FBI and a love interest who may be string theory in action.  Elizabeth Norris tackles some interesting SciFi in this series and I’m on tenterhooks to find out how this all wraps up!

sss 6 pushing the limits

Ending with a bang here, dear reader.  Love, love, love Noah’s and Echo’s story!  With all the intensity of true love and troubled psyches, this book rocks and the school counselor saves them both in more ways than 1!

So those are MY top 6 books I loved set in a school.  What about you?

Can you narrow it down to only 6???

What memories do they bring up??

Let us know!

  1. What a great meme!!! I love that you guys do this on Sunday 🙂 Sometimes I just DON’T feel like sharing my haul (it’s those days that it feels like its all just bragging).

    Your list is great! I was just researched banned/challenged books and it’s so cool that you’ve actually got two of those on your list. I’m thinking I really want to put aside my reality issues and read Thirteen Reasons 🙂

    Have a great week!!!
