My 5 Favourite Gothic Literature Books

Without a doubt, one of my favourite literary genres of all time is Gothic. I stumbled onto this genre after choosing a class themed around it at university; the reading list looked interesting (Mary Shelley, Edgar Allen Poe, Robert Louis Stevenson etc.), and so I popped it onto my enrollment list for that year.

What I didn’t realise was that, in chosing this class, I would discover an amazing genre to which some of my favourite books of all time would belong. So, today, I though I might share some of my favourites with you. Here are my five favourite Gothic lit books!


  1. Frankenstein by Mary Shelley
  2. The Magic Toyshop by Angela Carter
  3. A Series of Unfortunate Events by Lemony Snicket
  4. The Picture of Dorian Gray by Oscar Wilde
  5. Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte
