The Furies by Fernanda Eberstadt
The Song of Achilles by Madeline Miller
Circe by Madeline Miller
Ovid's Metamorphoses for Greek mythology enthusiasts
[Remember: Some of these books have dark academia as their major aspect but most of them have dark academia as their minor aspect, and many of them have been put into the list because I got a dark academia kind of vibe from them. Moreover these books have a lot more to offer than just Dark Academia, even if we ignore that aspect, these books are just great pieces of literature. This list is entirely created out of my own reading researches, friendly recommendations, and book recs from reddit, pinterest and the internet in general. If I have gone wrong somewhere or if you want me to add something new, feel free to drop an ask.]

Borrow books, share pdfs, email ebooks. Understand that academia is expensive. Make it more accessible, help someone gain knowledge. Dismantle the disparity with second-hand books and hand-me-downs. Share. Share. Share.

My best advice: write through the chapters of your life. Write down your hopes for the future, and when the future comes, keep on writing. Collect little business cards from your favourite cafes, take silly pictures of your sink, scribble love letters to your future self and keep all the little notes that people leave you. One day, all of this will be in your past, and you won’t remember any of it. But that same day, you might pick up the silly little business card or the silly little note, and you’ll be happy you kept it all. :)

list of things your grades don’t show:
how kind you are
how hard you’re working
how much rest you’re giving yourself
how much your friends love you
how funny you are
how good you are at baking bread
how many dirty dishes you did even when it was hard
the things you’ve suffered that you’re still having to carry around
how nice your shampoo smells
literally almost all of the most endearing and important things about you
