I was tagged by Sweaters and Raindrops. This comes at the perfect time for me, because I recently finished watching the documentary ‘The Imagineering Story’ on Disney+ which talks about how the Disney parks were created!

We are off to a great start! My mind has gone completely blank. I can’t even think of a book that mentions a river, let alone is set by the river. There is probably so many obvious ones but I can’t think of any!
I think The Lady’s Guide to Petticoats and Piracy by Mackenzi Lee is the only book hat I have read that takes place at sea. I can’t think of anymore and this one has pirates too. I really enjoyed this book and I loved Felicity and how strong and intelligent she was.
I definitely got an eerie vibe from Chain of Gold by Cassandra Clare! Just Jesse Blackthorns presence is already spooky but then there is that one scene with Lucie Herondale and… I don’t want to spoil it for those who haven’t read it, but if you have read it you know exactly what I mean! Actually… doesn’t that scene take place in the river?
The one book or book series that really sticks in my mind for this one is the Beautiful Creatures series by Kami Garcia and Margaret Stohl. I did really enjoy this book when I read it when I was younger, though I probably wouldn’t feel the same now if I read it. I do remember the dialogue representing southern states in America and the constant mention of a southern drool.
This one took me ages to think of one. I can only come up with The Selection Series by Kiera Cass – does that count as a castle? I’m counting it. I love this series, I always mention it being a great, feel good series. If you need a distraction, and want a great ‘fluffy’ series, this one is it.
I really want to put Heartless by Marissa Meyer here, but is that cheating becuase it is Alice in Wonderland themed? I don’t think so, I am keeping it. Heartless is all about the Queen of Hearts and how she ended up being the cruel, unforgiving woman that she is in Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland. I found it so strange when I started it, seeing this evil Queen making lemon tarts and dreaming of opening her own bakery.
Similarly to the river one, I can’t think of one at all!
I recently spoke about this book in another post, but Flame in the Mist by Renée Ahdieh. I haven’t actually read this one yet but I am so excited to pick it up soon!
