REVIEW | Gothikana – RuNyx


Ok, completely different from what I’ve read before for the most part, but I freaking adored it. It was so dark, and the relationship felt sinister and bully-ish at times – but it suited the tone of the book impeccably and I ate that right up, and I don’t even like insta-love so that is saying something.


I can’t get over how good the vibes were. It was what I want my dark academia to be. The location is probably one of my favourite locations ever, and even though it is spooky as hell, I want to visit. There was such mystery to the story, and I both love and hate that not all of it is resolved, and we are left hanging to make up our minds. I was actually blindsided for once by one of the reveals -that’s impressive haha. I would love to revisit sometime and hopefully get a little more closure (and just more of the history and characters).

The only reason this isn’t getting 5 stars is the number of typos I found (and maybe it could have had a little more closure).

“This will last until the day roses on my grave stop sharing roots with the roses on yours,” he declared. “I will have you even in death, little witch. I am your beast. I am your madness. And you, you’re my afterlife.”

About Me

Books and food enthusiast. I discovered a love for reading in my late teens, so you’ll see me catching up on older series quite often. I also love to travel around the UK, where I live, and picking up some crafty hobbies – I hope to share snippets of this amongst all the book content. Other interests include gaming, podcasts, drinking too much tea, and trying to personify autumn.
