Top 5 Books to Read During Back to School

September usually marks the beginning of a new school term, and I honestly didn’t think I’d be going to school this year, but life has a way of driving on my plans with a bulldozer.

For a couple of weeks, and against all my survival instincts, I swear, I’ve been really interested in a course with the University of Toronto that’s only available in class, and I decided to scream: I’M HERE, DEBTS, FIRE AWAY!

I registered.

So I’ll be moving to Toronto from October to December to attend a course about the publishing business and I really don’t know what to expect, and I feel like I forgot how to get excited for the beginning of a school term, so I’m just downright freaking out.

That’s why I decided to browse through my bookshelves and reread a couple of books that I remember reading and thinking, “I kinda wanna go to school, now.” You know, just the regular, nerdy-feel-good books.

Here’s my top five:

1. Moxie, Jennifer Mathieu


This book made me want to go back to high-school and actually get involved, in like, stuff. Because in high-school all I wanted to do was sleep and blend in, which is like, my biggest regret.

2. The Name of the Wind, Patrick Rothfuss


I’m actually still not done reading this book because (insert lame excuse here). I mean, I started like two years ago, something is definitely wrong with me. But I’m at this part where the MC goes to the University, and it just makes me want to study my brains out until I’m superior to everyone else and I can finally conquer the universe.

You know?

3. To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before, Jenny Han


Because I really just want to Lara Jean the hell out of my agenda. Like I would scrapbook every page and be organized and everything. And not be so effin lazy with how I dress. But let’s be real. That’s going to last 20 seconds, tops.

4. Anna and the French Kiss, Stephanie Perkins



5. Harry Potter series, J.K. Rowling


Because of course what would this list be without Hogwarts?


There would be no point to this list.


What about you guys?

What books make you want to go to school for some reason?

    1. Omg I had no clue the third book was taking so long to be written, I suddenly feel so much less guilty that it’s also taking me a thousand years to read them haha.

      Right? I think that’s probably why high school is so horrible: nobody knows who they truly are, so we’re all trying to fit in with other people that all have zero clue who they are and are just pretending to be someone else. A nightmare. Haha

  2. I think you could find any sort of way to get HP to fit a reading list hahahaha

    My three immediate coworkers are talking about going back to school. Now they’ve got me itching to go back, too – I enjoyed classes and having a set study plan! (I’m mostly convinced that I need formal, actual classes to learn languages, and I’m probably rare in that I miss math classes!)

    Yay for you going to Toronto! I knew someone who lived in Toronto for a few years and he really liked it there. I hope your class is great! 🙂

    1. Right? HP belongs on every kind of Top 10! XD
      And I know, I kind of missed how having a study plan made me more organized in other spheres of my life. Like at the moment, I only work three-four days a week and somehow I can’t get any writing or reading done! I’ve lost all kind of self-discipline, and I remember that I was writing 1000 words a day when I studied full-time AND worked part-time. Anyway, we’ll see!

      Thank you! I hope so too! 🙂
