Top Ten Tuesday: Back to school


Welcome to this week's edition of Top Ten Tuesday which is hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl. This 

week the theme is Back to School. Our school year runs from late January to mid December so it is an unusual time for this theme for us but I am going to stick with it.

So, here are ten books which feature schooling relating words.

Kalahari Typing School for Men by Alexander McCall Smith - the fourth book in the No. 1 Ladies Detective Agency series

The School for Heiresses - This was an anthology featuring Sabrina Jeffries, Julia London, Renee Barnard and Liz Carlyle. It's such a shame that Liz Carlyle doesn't write any more. Her books were fab. (review)

Kitchen Counter Cooking School by Kathleen Flinn - I did a joint review with Beth Fish Reads for this book which was so much fun.

The School of Essential Ingredients by Erica Bauermeister - This book made me want to take cooking lessons! (review)

Charm School by Nelson De Mille - I read this book back in the early 1990s, as well as several other books by this author. This was a Cold War spy novel. Not sure it would hold up too well now, but I did enjoy his books a lot at the time.

Poison Study by Maria V Snyder - I could have chosen any of the Study trilogy really. (review)

The Piano Teacher by Janice Y K Lee - love the cover of this book!

Teach Me by Olivia Dade - I read this book earlier this year. It won't be my last book by this author.

French Lessons by Ellen Sussman - I don't remember much about this book but to be fair I did read it 11 years ago.

The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People: Powerful Lessons in Personal Change by Stephen R Covey - I did this as part of a leadership program through work a few years ago now.


  1. Clever choices today Marg. A rather new release you can add to your selection as well - The School for Good Mothers.

    Happy TTT!

  2. Love your list. I read The 7 Habits and found it inspiring. The School of Essential Ingredients sounds wonderful. Thanks for sharing.


    1. I have read and enjoyed a few of her books Cheryl, but it has been a while

  3. I agree with Elza’s recommendation. A School for Good Mothers would fit in perfectly. It was an interesting read, too!

  4. I still need to read Teach Me. I have loved that author's books.

    1. I need to read some of her other books Deanna!

  5. I've not read any of these, but Poison Study has been on my TBR for ages.

  6. Nice way to focus for this week's prompt! I need to remember this for next year. I went rogue this week.

    1. Going rogue is good too Greg!! My plan is to go rogue in the next couple of weeks!

    2. Sorry, that reply was to you Cindy!

  8. Does your country only get a month holiday from school then? I'm always fascinated by how the school system works in other countries. In the US, our school usually goes from late August to early June. Our kids get a little over two months holiday unless they're in what we call a year-around school. Those school go from late July to mid-June, but they get three-week breaks throughout the year.

    1. Hi Jenni Elyse,

      We get just over a month over December/January and then there is 2 weeks in April, July and September

  9. Fun take on this week's topic! I haven't read these, so I'll have to look them up!
    Here is our Top Ten Tuesday. Thank you!
