"Dark academia is more popular than ever before — a blend of literary fiction and genre fiction, gothic and grounded. Dark academia books come in many styles, but they all share the theme of, well, dark academia.
Putting a firm definition of dark academia can be tricky but it generally involves places of higher education, gothic aesthetics, strange goings-on, and the implementation of magic is entirely optional.
As you'll see here, some dark academia books can be fantastical, others science-inspired; some are very grounded and literary, others far from it.
We've added a wide range of dark academia books by classic and contemporary writers, some in English, and others in translation."
