To be perfectly honest, this was the only one of the series that I 100% enjoyed. But with a fascinating background, complex main characters, and interesting, creative side characters, what's not to love? Agatha's journey is meaningful and reasonably paced and Sophie's transformation into a villian is a meticulous slow burn. The ending was satisfying, but it's best read as a stand alone, as the other books in the series erase the message.

“I‘m far from home, I‘ve lost my only friend, everyone here hates me, and all I want is a way to find some kind of happy ending,” Agatha said, red-hot. “But you can‘t even tell me the truth. My ending is not about what Good I do or what‘s inside me. It‘s about how I LOOK.” Spit flew out of her mouth. “I never even had a CHANCE.” (Pg. 372)

This was wonderfully entertaining! An interesting twist on what it means to chose goodness and what it means to give into hate. Fairytale lovers will adore this one!!

This was such a great book, the storyline behind it was amazing and I couldn‘t have had a better reaction to this book. I highly recommend reading this book although it is part of a series, so if you don‘t like series this book may not be the one for you

I absolutely loved this story! What does it mean to be good or evil? There's a school for that! Magic, mix-ups, and fairytales help two girls discover who they truly are.

What does good or evil really look like? Such a cute fun book. Nice middle grade book, I am always on the lookout for new titles for my niece and I definitely think that this will be heading to her next.

This was a bit problematic for me in places, but darn it all, I did like the world and the concept. It‘s quite shallow most of the time and the gender role restrictions drive me crazy. I give it ⭐️⭐️⭐️ personally, BUT I‘d still recommend it. Because it was the right amount of magical and fun.

So here's my order. The facing stack is what I got for myself. All sequels except for School of good and evil. Then my three other stacks are for #halloweengoespostal #allhallowsreadbookexchange and #monstermadness2017. The prompts are just to hide the titles. Please ignore the mess of the unfinished walls and tool central kitchen. But you can kind of see my new stove. It's so nice to have an oven again.

julesG You didn't have an oven?! 😱 2y
LibrarianRyan @julesG nope. Two kitchens. Two stoves and ovens. Between the two there was only 3 working burners and no oven. Now I have a new fancy Samsung convection oven with speed boiler and everything. Next a new fridge. But not until December. 2y
mabell Isn't so nice to have an oven back?! We had a plumbing catastrophe, so we had an unplanned kitchen renovation. I cooked on a hot plate for a couple months. 😂 2y

julesG @mabell Something to remember. I remember moving into this flat 13 years ago, we had a brand new 5 burner gas stove but no gas connection and no power socket for the oven. So it was microwave dinners for three weeks. When we overhauled the kitchen 3 years ago (the old cupboards were falling apart) I had to make do with an induction plate for two weeks. And I made eggs on the fireplace. Felt very rustic. 2y
mabell @julesG It was a fun adventure! Not eager to repeat in the near future, but it was a chance to get creative! 2y
LibrarianRyan @mabell we did a LOT of grilling. But my grill is also on it's last leg. And lots of crockpot. 2y
LibrarianRyan @julesG oh yeah. Makes you very thankful. 2y
mabell We did a little grilling, but I didn't really think of Crockpot - that's a good idea! 2y
tpixie We‘ve been without an oven/stove for 2 weeks! And our grill broke! Using crockpot, microwave and we need to get out the electric skillet! Luckily got a new grill. New stove comes Friday. We‘re getting a Samsung also!! 2y
tpixie @LibrarianRyan yes! My grandsons coming this weekend so I want to make pumpkin pancakes and I want to try to find a pumpkin cookie recipe for him!! 2y

I finished this #audiobook on my way to visit my family for the long weekend. I really liked the concept of the story. There were a lot of great twists throughout the story. The ending wasn't very satisfying, but I see that it has sequels. I'm not sure how the rest of the trilogy will go.

Great! I love it, I love the world and all, I love the schools. TBH, I don't like Sophie. Quite so. I love Agatha, and I love it when I walk around the schools in Agatha's view. The ending was beyond my expectation. This is my kind of fantasy. I want to read book two soon!

How cute was this book! Agatha is an adorable little sugarplum I wanted to hug and say love yourself! I loved the friendship element even if I wanted more from Sophie. I've always loved princess stories and fairy tales and even at 26 I say I am a self proclaimed princess. This take on how those books are created and how people aren't just good or evil but have a little of both was a delight to read. This wools be a great graphic novel! 😍👸🏻👑

Ich lese zurzeit unter anderem den ersten Band von 'The School for Good and Evil'. Mein Herz schlägt für Märchen und deshalb musste ich dieses Buch unbedingt haben. Mittlerweile bin ich auf Seite 131 und so richtig drin bin ich in der Geschichte leider immer noch nicht.

Das liegt z. B. daran, dass ich mir die Charaktere überhaupt nicht als Menschen vorstellen kann. Für mich könnte es ein witziger Anime sein. 😊

Kennt ihr das Buch? 📚

Federecke Ich hab bisher nur den ersten Teil gelesen. Aber es war so, so toll 💕 2y
Nelly Ich mochte es auch sehr gerne, hab allerdings auch ne Zeit gebraucht bis ich ein Gefühl für die Geschichte bekommen habe 2y
angstvorclowns @Federecke Das klingt super. 😊 Ich weiß nämlich noch nicht, was ich von der Geschichte halten soll. Die Idee ist klasse, aber bisher ist vieles so klischeehaft. Bis auf Agatha. Ich setze alle Hoffnung in sie. 😁 2y
angstvorclowns @Nelly Ich habe ja noch einige Seiten vor mir, weshalb ich hoffe, dass sich das Gefühl bei mir auch noch einstellt. Ich habe nicht erwartet, dass dieses Buch so besonders ist. Man muss sich wirklich darauf einlassen. 😊 2y
Federecke Aber gerade weil es auch so viele Klischees sind, macht es das ganze doch so toll. Es spielt doch damit. 2y

Personally, this book is an absolute favorite. I've read the whole series at least three times because of how amazing it was written. A lot of books have good story lines and I'm glad this author in particular was able to nail it. It is a tween book, but as the characters grow older and the book, the language begins to be more mature and challenging for readers. And it begins to get lengthy as well. This book has taken a special place in my heart.
