From Midnight to Mourning: 25 Dark Books for Goths

Posted on May 22, 2024

World Goth Day is May 22, which is weirdly meaningful even to us goth-adjacent folks who like weirdly dark stuff and that one song by the Cure. This is a crowd who knows how to, well, not party really, but maybe more like loom suggestively in ways most of us can’t pull off? I heard a great quote once about someone who got a little carried away with piercings looking like they fell face-first into a tackle box, and now I can’t un-hear that every time I see over-exuberant facial piercings. So yeah, May 22, fire up that goth playlist, maybe catch up on rewatching Wednesday, and most of all, let your dark freaky flag fly!
