6 'Flashlight Worthy' Novels That Will Take You Back to Campus (PHOTOS)

One of the great things about running Flashlight Worthy Book Recommendations -- a website full of hundreds of lists of great books -- is the new way in which we see the calendar.

For example, until we started the site, we viewed late August as a time for Beach Reads. Whether steampunk, Bond or Chick Lit, August was for plunking down on a towel with something mindless.

But our August isn't everyone's. As Molly Ives Brower reminded us:

Every year late August means students and faculty everywhere return to campus. If you're not fortunate enough to be one of them, you can still get that collegiate feeling by settling into a comfy chair with a great campus novel. There are certain to be many beyond this list, but those below all have one thing in common: they evoke a sense of being at a particular kind of college at a particular point in time.

Enjoy Molly's campus picks and be sure to comment to let us know what titles she missed. When you're done, head on over to Flashlight Worthy for hundreds more book lists.
