It's fall, the season of witches, brews, potions, and dark academia. I've been in the mood to read all books set with those sepia tone students and suspicious professors, with languid days, and sharp-thorned nights.
A dark, foreboding read that drummed up feelings of being locked in beautiful, gothic architecture, so that at first your prison seems like a palace. A perfect read for the fall, and a nod to the great gothic classics.
With fall just around the corner, there's something about the gothic, or at least, dark atmosphere that is the backdrop to many dark academia novels that is just what we need. Coupled with the quarantine, there's nothing quite like settling in with a book with intellectual characters getting into all sorts of trouble.
