21 They go to a school to learn magic

Honestly, I've seen very few books with schools for magic, however, there are many about schools to learn...well...anything! A have heard of Monster High and Ever-After High books (which I only read one each of and were horrible, and Monster High was so forgettable I forgot what they were learning), where the characters learn to be princess and fictional characters, which were a bit much. It was acceptable for Harry Potter, but that's because it was written good.

The only books I have seen with this cliche is Harry Potter, Hex Hall, and Carry On. And Carry On was basically supposed to be like Harry Potter.

Harry Potter and Percy Jackson started this - FavoriteFightingFrenchman

HP has a lot of cliches but is still a decent well written series. - Lunala

Yer a wizard harry - Lunala

This is by far the most lazy story anyone can come up with, I've seen it in EVERYHTING and I am so sick of it!

If done right they aren't too bad. If done wrong, they are AWFUL - Lunala

25 Learns everything about a skill in a small, days or weeks, amount of time, or has special magic skill, because -special-

Part of the reason TMI and clary made me want to set myself on fire
