Dark Academia Recommendations

dark academia book recommendations

I finally realized (thanks to Leonie from The Book Leo) that I had been reading on trend for years. What trend you may ask? The Dark Academia aesthetic. The minute I heard of it, I was intrigued but since I wasn’t reading much, I didn’t feel justified buying a bunch of new books just to explore this new trend. And then I watched Leonie’s video and realized: but wait, I have been loving Dark Academia-esque books for years! So I went to my shelves and picked 15 of my favorites that I fit can work if you are looking to read within the Dark Academia aesthetic. And these may be a bit different from the usual list of Dark Academia recommendations, at least I hope so. Let’s roll.
