Ready to get deep into the dark academia vibes? I’ve been compiling this list for a while and wanted to create the ultimate dark academia book list. If you’re wanting to learn more about what Dark Academia is you can check out this post here. But it’s basically and aesthetic and genre that revolves around the pursuit of knowledge and learning. It ropes in the classical world, arts, philosophy, sciences along with a little death and morality. It’s a darker, warmer, academic vibe.
So if you’re into that kind of stuff and you happen to be a reader this is the book list for you. But I also want to keep this as a living document of sorts because obviously I can’t know every single dark academic book there is out there so leave a comment below of anything you think I missed and I’ll be updating this post with your suggestions. Enjoy!
