Happy back-to-school season everyone! I went back to school last week and so far, so good, besides managing to get sick within the first week of being back. Inspired by the beginning of the school year, today’s Top Five Wednesday is all about classes that you would take based on books or based on character’s skills . While we all wish we were taking Potions and Quidditch 101 at Hogwarts, there are so many other classes that’d I’d love to take part in inspired by some of my favorite books.
How to Make a Web Series 101 | Tash Hearts Tolstoy by Kathryn Ormsbee
With the success of Unhappy Families, Tash and Jack are the queens of web series. One of my interests outside of blogging and reading include filming, and I think it would be really fun to be part of a web series. Like Tash and Jack, I’d love to be more behind-the-scenes and actually be creating the show.
Intermediate Level Baking| To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before by Jenny Han
If there’s just one feeling that the To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before trilogy gives me (trust me, there are plenty), it’s the inspiration to bake my butt off. Lara Jean would be the perfect baking instructor, and together we could find the perfect chocolate chip cookie recipe, even though Peter, Kitty, and Lara Jean seem to have that covered.
Computer Skills | Cress by Marissa Meyer
Cress is my favorite book in The Lunar Chronicles series, and I love how Cress helps the gang kick butt with her tech-savviness. Throw in Thorne as her teaching assistant and you have a fun & informative class all about computers and how to use them to take down an evil queen from the Moon.
Digital Arts | Eliza and Her Monsters by Francesca Zappia
Eliza and Her Monsters features gorgeous illustrations that correspond to Eliza’s web comic, Monstrous Sea. I’d love to take a class with Eliza teaching me how to use drawing tablets and the editing process behind it (I’m actually hoping to take digital animation next semester).
Violin 101 | This Savage Song by Victoria Schwab
If there’s one person in the world that could teach me to play the violin, it’s August Flynn. While I wouldn’t need the soul-seeking help, August would be a great instructor.
