“Five Favorite” is a feature on thewasofshall where I lay out my five favorite “x”. Sometimes they’re relevant to a season or holiday, mostly they’re not. It’s an all-around fun excuse to give my 100% amazingly awesome opinion. To see previous (and future) topics, click here. To participate, scroll all the way down.
School is in full swing right now, and there’s nothing more academic than the boarding school novel. Say, Rach, what makes a novel a “boarding school novel”? Well, dear reader, a majority of the whole dang book is set at school and, ho hey, the main characters live there, too. Here are my five favorite.
the Harry Potter series by J.K. Rowling
the Gemma Doyle series by Libba Bray
Never Let Me Go by Kazuo Ishiguro
A Separate Peace by John Knowles
Looking for Alaska by John Green
