TTT #103 – Books That Start at a High School Setting But Turn Into an Adventure

School is something that is slowly inching itself forward for some of you. Some might even already have started. Which is why top ten tuesday, as always created by The Broke and the Bookish, decided to give us a back to school freebie.

These back to school freebies always have me stumped. I haven’t gone to school since 2011 when I graduated for my bachelor, and so I tend to have little creative juices when it comes to this topic. Even so, I settled on finding some books with a high school setting that turn into an adventure. School can still be present in the background or forgotten after the initial start, but even so it is there.

So if you are a student here are some books to start the school year with that will help you spice up your daydreams a little while in school and make your day more exciting. During lunch of course. Only daydream during lunch… šŸ˜‰

  1. I’m starting to wonder if I’ll ever read Percy Jackson, I’ve been meaning to for forever and it never happens. Sigh. Good list though, daydreaming in school is underrated.

  2. Read Percy Jackson at the start of Summer. Seriously read all five books in a week’s time, haha!
    Apart from that, I’ve read The Raven Boys, but have yet to read the sequels – which I’ll do during my Sequel September – yay!

    Nice list! šŸ™‚

  3. Haha I have the same creative troubles when it comes to these back to school topics, since it’s already been 10 years since I graduated šŸ™‚ But I love your take on the topic, nothing spices up school as much as a good little adventure šŸ˜‰

  4. Ooooh– This is a really interesting take on the TTT theme! I do love books which start in one setting and turn into something completely different. I’ve only read three books on your list: Percy Jackson, The Blazing Star, and The 5th Wave. Which of the remaining would you recommend I pick up next?

  5. I bought Shutter last year to read with Halloween but hadn’t gotten around to reading it yet, so I save it for this upcoming Halloween. And the Archived by V.E. Schwab is on my wishlist, I’m very curious about that one!

  6. Haha, bij mij is het zelfs nog langer geleden dat ik afstudeerde. Als ik me niet vergis was dat in 2004. Yep, zolang al. Dat verklaart meteen ook waarom ik de helft van wat ik ooit leerde ondertussen alweer vergeten ben. Al die kennis moest uiteraard plaats maken voor de avonturen uit de velen boeken die ik sindsdien las. šŸ™‚
