no guarantee i will read them even if they have all these bits, this list is just a preference list.

  • boarding school and its questionable rules
  • complicated world building is fine but not exactly high on a list
  • enemies-to-lovers, lovers-to-enemies, sunshine x grumpy pair
  • family curses and haunted manor or mansion, secrets and twisted lies
  • gloom and horror metaphor, lyrical writing style
  • pretty covers would trick me into reading them
  • short chapters are more than loved
  • standalone > duology > trilogy
  • i don't really enjoy steamy romance
  • the word 'Gothic' is being mentioned in a blurb
  • witch, cult, eerie ambience
  • women (or group of friends) are the main characters
