Listless Monday, Boarding School Edition

Listless Monday was inspired by both Amanda at A Bookshelf Monstrosity's feature Books by Theme and Court at Once Upon a Bookshelf's Listed feature.  Be sure to check out their lists!

I'm a bit slow posting this, since school started weeks ago, but I figured I would post this list of boarding school books anyway.

I'm sure I'm missing loads - any suggestions?

If you buy through my Amazon linkage, I will get a very small percentage


  1. I love books that are set at boarding schools. A great one is Prep, by Curtis Sittenfeld. I recently read The Twisted Thread, by Charlotte Bacon, and that one was great too. I will have to look up some of the books you listed!

  2. So, I like these lists but I always want a recommendation. Say I happen to love boarding school books. Which one, or two, would you recommend?

  3. I know that Jessica Warman's WHERE THE TRUTH LIES takes place at a boarding school, and I believe her first book, BREATHLESS, does as well.

  4. reviewsbylola, I hadn't heard of The Twisted Thread - I'll have to add it!

    Jenny, I haven't read all of them, but I enjoyed The Disreputable History and I really loved Ballad.

    Kelly, good suggestions - I'll add them too!

  5. Wow, what a great list! I actually don't know if I've read any boarding school books that you haven't already mentioned.

  6. carol, and I haven't even read most of these!


Love it when you comment!
