This Top 5 series is a weekly meme created by Amanda @ Devouring Books.
Each week we’ll pick 5 books featuring the common theme provided. These can be books that we’ve read, or ones that are still on our TBRs. I’ll note beside each one if I’ve read the book yet or not, and provide a link to my review if I have one.
PLEASE NOTE: Although this post is inspired by Devouring Books’ Top 5 series, this prompt is of my own devising and not officially one of Amanda’s suggestions.
Feel free to share your own favourites or give me more TBR suggestions in the comments.
As always, in no particular order…
In the most general terms, Gothic literature can be defined as writing that employs dark and picturesque scenery, startling and melodramatic narrative devices, and an overall atmosphere of exoticism, mystery, fear, and dread. Often, a Gothic novel or story will revolve around a large, ancient house that conceals a terrible secret or serves as the refuge of an especially frightening and threatening character.https://www.thoughtco.com/gothic-literature-2207825
