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.
For fans of Outlander - you'll love the time travel perspectives, the mystery, and the Scottish headlands.
Beautifully rendered and utterly magical, Wolf Winter is a gritty, dark, and atmospheric read set in 1717, in the Swedish Lapland.
Pine is unsettling.
What would you do if you find out your best - only - friend is a psychopath?
A coming-of-age, quirky story about the Brontes' last surviving ancestor, and the scavenger hunt her dead father sets for her from beyond the grave.
Considering the lower Goodreads rating on this book (3.01 out of 5), I didn't have high hopes for this story. I ended up devouring it...
A strong mystery that reads like an Agatha Christie. Intricate plot and characters, with each character having their own will and desires. It was hard to know who to trust, and to what extent.
Nothing like a dead great-aunt to haunt you. This book was a fun, flirty read, with a haunting ghost who happens to be your dead great-aunt who wants nothing more than to dance with handsome (living) men and get her stolen necklace back.
It did not disappoint.
