The dark academia novel that went viral on TikTok (and why you need to read it)

Discover the book series we're cuddling up with this autumn
Forget streaming services, this autumn it's all about comfy couches, flickering candles and must-have fiction…

With the darker evenings fast approaching, it's officially time to dig out the slippers, the scented candles and, yes, the best books to curl up with once the weather turns.

Let's face it, when it comes to genres, dark academia is one of the best types of tome to get us in a cosy mood pre-Christmas. Magic, intricate plots, ancient mysteries – all of these constitute ideal subject matter for a windy autumn's night of bookwormery, which is why The Atlas Six by Olivie Blake is already topping our new season must-read list.

Each decade, the prestigious yet secretive Alexandrian Society – whose custodians guard the lost knowledge of ancient civilisations – invite magicians from all over the world to try and join their order, a position which guarantees a lifetime of power and prestige. However, even though six candidates are invited to apply for selection, there are only five spaces to fill…

New to paperback, this book was a No 1 Sunday Times bestseller and No 3 New York Times bestseller, as well as going viral on TikTok, with over 37.4M views of the hashtag #theatlassix

Plus, this is just the beginning. The highly anticipated sequel The Atlas Paradox is due for release later this year on the 25th October.

Dark academia fans, rejoice. The Atlas Six is about to make September a lot more fantastical.
