Top Ten Tuesday: Books Set In Boarding Schools

I'm on holiday right now with lots of family so it's difficult to get time to myself, so I probably won't be writing any reviews until I get back home. So I've got a Top Ten Tuesday for you to today!


TOP TEN BOOKS SET IN BOARDING SCHOOLS

Today's topic was 'Books Set In X' so I chose boarding schools because boarding schools are awesome. I love the drama and relationships that take place between teenagers living together 24/7, without parental supervision... Great fun! Here are my top ten picks:

Harry Potter by JK Rowling - Obviously.

Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins - I reread this yesterday and oh my goodness I'd forgotten how perfect it is. I want to go to boarding school in France!

Shades of London by Maureen Johnson - These books are great, set in a boarding school in London. Can't wait for the next one!

Hex Hall by Rachel Hawkins - These books are such good reads! Funny too. I love them.

Night School by CJ Daugherty - I absolutely adore…
