Black Gate » Articles » Crappy Parents All Around: A Look ...

For this one, I don’t know what I would choose! I can’t remember any books that I’ve read that were set along a river; I seriously need to step up my adventure game! The only one I can think of is House of Hades, which is technically a river of fire in the Underworld 😉



I just posted "Annabeth" for my story "The Blood of ...It looks like I’m still struggling to find a book- I know if I think about I’ll get it but I’ve read so many books that I can’t remember XD. The one that I’m thinking of right now is about an adventure overseas so I hope this counts, although it’s not necessarily high seas. And it’s another Riordan book because apparently, I don’t read anything else. The Blood of Olympus was basically the Seven traveling to Athens via the Argo II so I think it counts!


The Women of Dauphine Book Launch - Big Easy Magazine I read The Women of Dauphine as an ARC (you can find my review here) almost a year ago and definitely found this creepy or eerie! I think it fits the prompt well.

It was a sapphic paranormal YA novel which is awfully unique, too!



Sarah J. Maas | New York Times Bestselling Author

Kingdom of Ash fits this prompt extremely well ;). It was the end of a very thrilling, very enrapturing fantasy series and I could not put it down! Every bit of it kept me hooked. I remember finishing this monstrosity (1000 pages) in four days because I wouldn’t stop reading. My school backpack was also really heavy for those couple of days 😀



Aristotle and Dante Discover the Secrets of the Universe ...

This beautiful book is set in El Paso, Texas, and I think that counts as the deep South 😉 I highly highly recommend this story- it’s beautiful, intriguing and poetic and the writing is simply magical!




A Curse So Dark and Lonely | Read Book SummaryI was honestly tempted to go with a Harry Potter book just for the sake of it, but the first book that occurred to me was A Curse So Dark And Lonely by Brigid Kemmerer. I read this sometime last year and really liked it (I still haven’t read the sequel, though) and the entire story basically takes place on the grounds of a castle!



Caraval (Caraval, #1) by Stephanie Garber — Reviews ... This answer seems pretty standard, but Caraval is one of the most whimsical books I’ve ever read! The setting is lush and magical, it’s fantastical although it also feels like you stepped back two hundred years in history, and the entire atmosphere of the book is very mysterious and flowery. This is also Alexandra’s answer so I don’t know if it’s cheating but it was the first thing that came to mind!



The Raven Cycle - WikipediaSo I’m going to amend the prompt a little bit since I can’t think of any books with a snowy trek through the mountains (once again, I need to up my adventure game! I need book recs!). However, The Raven Boys has a really prominent setting which is a mountain/hill (oh, whatever- just give me this one, okay?!). Cabeswater is definitely a hilly landscape so I’m just going to count TRB for this prompt!



Tomi Adeyemi on CHILDREN OF BLOOD AND BONE | The Young FolksFor once, I finally got a good answer to this prompt! Children of Blood and Bone is definitely a perfect novel inspired by another culture. The magic and setting are based on West African cultures and I found myself immersed and obsessed with the worldbuilding!

The sequel came out a couple months ago- I really need to check it out!

Also, it’s a small world is now stuck in my head, if anyone wanted to know.

Tarnished Are the Stars by Rosiee Thor

ONCE MORE, I AM STUMPED. I basically have read no Scifi so I’m going to have to pick Tarnished Are The Stars (here’s my review) because it’s probably the only book that I remember reading (keyword: REMEMBER) that had a space setting. I wouldn’t necessarily call it fast-paced or an opera but at least we got the space part?! Oh, well.





So that’s that! This post is surprisingly under a thousand words, yay! But it has also taught me that I need to seriously step up my adventure and Scifi game!

Do you have any recommendations for adventure or Scifi YA books? (other than Illuminae and The Lunar Chronicles please) What books set by the river have you read?

  1. Ahhh, these are such great books!! The House of Hades is my favorite book in the Heroes of Olympus and Aristotle and Dante is also so beautiful 🙂 I haven’t read any books by Sarah J. Maas yet but, I want too! What is her series Throne of glass about?

    1. Totally! HoH is also my fav book in HoO 🙂 Ari and Dante is totally a great book!
      Omg ToG is one of my favorite guilty pleasure series 😂 it’s about Celaena Sardothien, an assassin, and the magic and worldbuilding in it and pretty darn lit 😉

  2. I haven’t read it yet but you should read Ahsoka!! It was pretty good, but the writing is a bit childish (especially since I think it’s supposed to be ‘adult’ but who knows) but yeah it was good?
    And obviously, the start of it all, Frankenstein

  3. I love reading posts like these so much! Honestly I would never have though of HoH for the first one, but seeing you mention it just triggered the memory of the river in the book like holy crap, that existed, of course.

  4. Lovely answers Aditi, congratulations on doing this epic tag week! Have I read a ooo based by the river? *sits and thinks for ageeees* one story I don’t think so, I don’t read a lot of sci-fi YA so unfortunately I’m out of suggestions, Goodreads is the perfect place to look for some suggestions though! Great post and can’t wait to see more awards :))

  5. I may have to do this, because I’ve been addicted to doing tags lately and this seems fun. Hmm.

    Also, Lord of the Rings features a trek through some mountains, and Song of the Crimson Flower is set along a riverside, and both were really fun! I especially loved Song of the Crimson Flower, I read it this year and it was SO good 😍 I am also the same as you as far as not having read a lot of books set in space. I don’t know what it is, I just haven’t read a lot of sci-fi!

    1. You totally should! Pretend I tagged you because if I tagged people I definitely would have tagged you lmao.
      I haven’t read either of them- oop 😅😳 but the second one sounds intriguing although I’ve never heard of it! (it would be a shame if I haven’t heard of LotR haha)
      Same! Thanks for stopping by x

  7. I love this tag 😍 and I’m so glad that you mentioned Children Of Blood & Bone as I somehow completely forgot that it’s on my TBR 🙈 I’m hopeless. I do so want to read it though as it sounds incredible!! I feel like one of the Matched books involved a river (and mountains thinking about it) at one point but I could be completely wrong 😂 Kingdom Of Souls had a few scenes by a river though. So I still need to read it but there’s a sci do retelling of Anastasia that I believe is set in space called Heart Of Iron. And adventure wise…why is my mind going blank? Ok I looked at my Kindle and Blood Red Road. I’m sure that had adventure vibes!! I should really reread it tbh as I can’t remember it very well but I’m sure it was good. Also Spellslinger, my favourite that I’ve read so far is book three.
