Books in Riverdale

Beskrivelse
An ever growing, evolving list of books & bookish media somehow referenced by Riverdale characters directly or indirectly. Shoutout to joneswuzhere & cinematicliterature on Tumblr for some real esoteric deep dives. Works I picked myself (with no direct references) are tagged as such in the explanation.
Based on series
Riverdale (TV Show, 2017-2023)

adaorhell: "Where I'm Calling From (short story)" is an important reference to Jughead and Raymond Carver is mentioned again and again through out the series (to, from, by, and about Jughead) and honestly I hope that more and more people are reading him. Any visibility for a dead alcoholic poet has got to be good.
