Tenisha Just wondering why vicious is listed here? Did I miss something in my reading of it?? I must know!

It's set only partly in an academic setting but it does fit many of the themes of dark academia: strong friendships, death/murder, characters who are driven by their passions, resulting in tragedies. So while it strictly probably shouldn't be considered a dark academia book, it does really fit well with the genre.


message 3: by Ag (new)

Ag Ninth house, Secret history and Frankenstein ar all listed twice


message 4: by Corbin (last edited May 29, 2020 09:38AM) (new)

Corbin "The Chocolate War" by Robert Cormier seems like a glaring omission here assuming I'm not misunderstanding this latest literary/aesthetic trend.


message 5: by Eli (new)

Eli "The Secret History" is in here 2 times. Could someone please delete one of the versions?


message 6: by koh (new)

koh why is the foxhole court listed? It's dark and set in college yes, but there is no academia

I think that it is just about kind of Victors fascination with pain.


message 8: by Kai (new)

Kai what is the base of dark academia genre??


message 9: by Rosa (new)

Rosa Yeah, a description would be nice.

This genre can be defined broadly, but generally speaking the books have an academic setting and feature characters exploring darker urges, navigating crimes or dark secrets, or exploring dark speculative elements.
