Happy Sunday Bibliofriends!
I kind of neglected the Six for Sunday side of posts last month but September brings a brand new monthly theme and one that is so relevant to my current goings on – The School Month! Today’s six picks are all about fictional schools and universities which we’d want to go to. Surprisingly, despite being a teacher, it turns out I haven’t read that many books based in education settings so trying to put together this list was a little tricky. I’m loving the dark academia vibes of some upcoming and recent book releases so there may be a couple of them featured here too.
For those who don’t already know, Six for Sunday is weekly meme hosted by Steph over at A Little But A Lot. September’s theme is ‘The School Month’.
Fictional Schools/Universities I’d Want To Go To
- Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry – Harry Potter
The school that heightened my love for reading, Hogwarts is definitely one of the places I wish existed in real life!
- OASIS School – Ready Player One
I love the whole idea of the OASIS world so getting to attend a virtual school is a must!
- Sunnydale High / UC Sunnydale – Buffy The Vampire Slayer
Buffy is one of my favourite TV shows and I’ve read loads of the series books too. Imagine attending a school on the Hellmouth with Buffy and her pals!
- Jordan College / Lyra’s Oxford – His Dark Materials
I’ve been to Oxford several times and always get swept away by the dreaming spires, beautiful architecture and the different colleges dotted all over the city. Lyra’s Oxford mixes the stunning educational settings with that extra bit of magic and mysticism I love in my fiction.
- Scholomance – A Deadly Education
This is one of the Dark Academia reads currently on my TBR. It doesn’t sound like a conventional magic school setting but I love the plot premise.
- Dalloway School – A Lesson in Vengeance
Dark. Twisty. Witchcraft. Hauntings. This book just found itself right at the top of my “need-to-buy” list.
