IF YOU LIKED THIS YOU’LL LIKE THIS: LET’S GET GOTHIC

Hey guys, today I’m coming at you with some gothic recommendations. I don’t think I’ve ever recommended gothic style books, and even though we’re nowhere near Halloween I figured I’d give it a shot!

Down Among the Sticks and Bones (Wayward Children, #2)

DOWN AMONG THE STICKS AND BONE

FRANKENSTEIN & DRACULA

Just ask anyone who’s read Down Among The Sticks and Bones and they’ll tell you that it felt exactly like a mix of Frankenstein &  Dracula with some social commentary on the side.

I really love DATSAB and every time I read it I get something different out of it. I’ll be honest I’ve never been particularly interested in Frankenstein or Dracula, so unless I had to read them for class, this book would probably be the only reason I picked them up. I thought it was really interesting how the two worlds can co-exist so it would be really interesting how they fair apart too, in their seperate novels.

Northanger Abbey

NORTHANGER ABBEY

If you like Jane Eyre then Northanger Abbey (Jane Austen) is going to be right up your alley! Both these books have a very similar, dark and dramatic vibe to them. They have two very intelligent and forward-thinking MCs (main characters) but, the characters also have quite overactive imaginations.

Also, as a plus, both of these are pretty funny so if you’re looking for something dramatic, gothic and worth a laugh, this is the book for you!

    1. I’m so glad! You are my Jane Eyre influencer after all!
      I think what I love most about the Wayward Children series is mostly the commentary, most of the time the characters and plot come second for me!

  2. I loooove Northanger Abbey (it’s one of my favorite Austen books), and I agree that it kinda has a similar vibe to Jane Eyre! DATSAB was one of my very favorite reads of last year, and somehow I haven’t read either Dracula OR Frankenstein! I have to change that soon. Thanks for the recommendations!
