During our temporary store closure, all of our booksellers have been hard at work coming with with fun recommendations, running Instagram book clubs, and hosting virtual events and programs to keep our readers connected.
One way we’ve expanded our online presence is through Bookshop, a recent initiative from the American Booksellers Association that provides a convenient, user-friendly online book buying platform that splits the profits among member bookstores.
With the help of authors, readers, and fellow booksellers, I created a dark and decadent reading list full of villain romances, monstrous lovers (or heroes), and forbidden kisses of all kinds.
If you need a quarantine read or six and want something gothic, this list is for you. Every dollar you spend on Bookshop directly benefits booksellers like me. Please consider sharing, or checking out the other fantastic lists my coworkers have curated on our Bookshop storefront. Enjoy!
