50/50 Friday: School Settings

50/50 Friday is a weekly meme hosted by Carrie from The Butterfly Reader and Laura from Blue Eye Books.

Their Prompt: “Now what is 50/50 Friday?

Everyone has a favorite and then we also have something we dislike. Like a coin, there are two sides to every question. Example: best sequel you’ve read/worst sequel you’ve read. So that’s what 50/50 Friday is all about. We will have a new topic every Friday (something bookish of course!). If you have ideas for this meme don’t be scared to let us know!”
This Week’s Question: Favorite/Least Favorite Book Set in a School
My Answer: Let’s be serious people, Harry Potter is most certainly the first series that came to mind for this question. Hogwarts is like the boss of all schools. eleanor & park by Rainbow Rowell also jumped into my head as did Stephen Chbosky’s the perks of being a wallflower, that Gail Carriger series, John Green’s Looking for Alaska, boy meets boy by David Levithan, The Absolutely True Story of a Part-time Indian by Sherman Alexie, Ender’s Game by Orson Scott Card, and the list goes on and on and on. But my winner has to be:
There is just something about Brakebills that both appeals and horrifies me.
Least Favorite:
While I realize many love this book, I was disturbed in a completely not good way. Worst school ever.

  1. I haven’t read either of these, but I hope to one of these days. The Magicians has been sitting on my shelf way too long. I really need to get to it.
