In a further attempt to catch up on the various tags I’ve been meaning to do, today I bring you the Dark Academia book tag! Dark academia is a genre that has always captured my interest, though I only recently learned the term for it. I like dark stories already… set them in a college or other school setting and I’m instantly more interested! That being said, this tag sounded right up my alley.
Before we get into it, I want to thank the lovely Livy @ Shelves of Starlight for tagging me! I also want to give a shout out to the original creators of this tag, carolynmariereads and emmie!
Alright, now let’s get to it 💀💀💀
Favourite academies or dark book/movie
Oof, this was a tough choice! I like a lot of darker books, but I don’t think a lot of them could count as “dark academia”. I ended up going with a recent favorite, Legendborn by Tracy Deonn. This might be a bit of a stretch, but it is dark and the background setting is at an university. So I’m gonna say it counts!
Also, I really just need everyone to pick up this spooky Arthurian legend remix and READ IT. Ugh, it’s so good!
