Top Ten Tuesday: Favorite Boarding School Books

Hola!

It’s time for Top Ten Tuesday (hosted by The Broke and Bookish)!

But before we get there…Happy Anniversary to my awesome husband! As of today we’ve officially been married for 8 years! It’s pretty awesome being married to your best friend, especially when he makes you laugh all the time!

Awwww that was pretty sweet wasn’t it?!

Okay, let’s back to business. The theme this week allows us to base our list around our favorite settings in books. Now, I’ve said this before, but I am obsessed with boarding school books! Chances are if a book is set in a boarding school I’m going to LOVE it…seriously, I don’t think I’ve met a boarding school book I didn’t like! There is just something fun about the idea of being a teenager living away from the supervision of your parents that is just so enticing!

In my opinion, boarding school books are where it’s at!
