Weekly Lists #102: Classes based on Books
It’s time for another seriously delayed Top 5 Wednesday. Because apparently, I only ever discover the fun topics about a week to a month after they’ve been published. Anyways, because back to school season, for university and college, starts either this or next week in Belgium? This seemed like the perfect subject to tackle! So here’s some classes based on books!

1. How to turn into a stalker
Crazy for You* is the kind of book that will have you sitting on the edge of your seat. Not because it’s necessarily that suspenseful. It’s just that from the very start you’re waiting for this thing to happen and with every page you turn without it happening? You’re just waiting and preparing yourself for it to get exponentionally worse. And when I say “worse”? I mean worse.
2. Religious retellings for children
C.S. Lewis’ The Chronicles of Narnia
I feel like it’s pretty well known that Chronicles of Narnia* are basically a retelling of the Bible, but there you go.
I mean, this could be anything from The Lord of The Rings* – because let’s be real. The guy made up an entire language. That’s gramatically sound.
My favourite is probably Carry On*, though, because it created a universe to the point where the stories upon which fanfiction was based in the reality, were actually made into a book as well. Talk about dedication.
4. How not to write politically correct
I mean. Anything by Enid Blyton*, yeah?
5. Sci-fi-cation of reality
More Than This, Patrick Ness
Sure, I wrote in my review that I figured the “twist” out pretty quickly. But here’s the thing: the way Patrick Ness set up that entire world in More Than This*? The way that, like, 65 complot theories were confirmed? The sci-fi aspect of it and the genius way in which it could actually be reality? Now that’s something I’d take a class in.
And there you have it, that’s 5 classes based on books! What books could inspire other classes? Be sure to let me know below!
