Top 5 Tuesday: Books Set At School

Top 5 Tuesday is a fun, weekly meme that asks you to pick 5 books that fit that week’s theme. It was created by Bionic Bookworm and is currently being hosted by Meeghan Reads. You should check out their wonderful blog for more details and the list of prompts!

Hello, reader!

It’s time for another Top 5 Tuesday! This week, we’re focusing on books that are set at school. Going through my reads, I realized that, though I love picking up books that have school settings, I truly enjoyed only a handful 😅 That being said, some of my picks may be a bit of a stretch, but I think they work!

Let’s go ahead and dive in!

#1. The Name of the Wind by Patrick Rothfuss

I’m sure almost everyone that follows my blog knows what this book is about. We’re following the story of a hero named Kvothe, as told when he is much older and owns an inn. But this first book in the series focuses on Kvothe’s origins and his time at a magical university. So that counts! I loved this book so much. It’s a thick one, but I was found myself flying through the story. It was completely immersive and just such a good time. I really need to continue on with this series.

#2. Ink and Bone by Rachel Caine

I had to get this series on this list! The first book in the Great Library series definitely focuses on the main character, Jesse, and his time at the training school of the Great Library of Alexandria. I loved following his schooling/training, but the best part was the relationships he developed while there. And the fact that he was totally supposed to be a plant for his black market, book selling family. This is such a great read!
