Plain Bad Heroines by Emily M. Danforth


“From books with smiling heroines, chivalrous young men, and happy endings, oh Kind Devil, deliver me.”

Something dark is happening at Brookhants, something so disturbing three girls have died. Over 100 years later, a book has been written about the happenings at Brookhants and we follow three heroines as they experience its horrors firsthand. This big, beautiful book is my favourite read of the year! Please don’t be intimidated by the size, every page was well worth it in providing the rich story. If you’re after something queer, gothic and mysterious to fill the dark academia hole in your life, I can’t recommend this enough! – Issi
