Books With a Nature Focus + Pretty Covers

Happy Tuesday! I just had a great staycation weekend and I’m now preparing for a big road trip in a couple weeks. May is shaping up to be busy for me! But I’m excited, because I will finally get to visit some national parks and cities that I’ve been wanting to see for some time now.

Which is a good segue into this week’s TTT topic of books with nature on the cover. I decided to put a slight twist on it and list books with some kind of nature focus plus their pretty covers!

The Books

If you read my review of Hummingbird Salamander, then you know that the environment, climate change was a huge factor in the story. The Story of More kind of speaks for itself (loved this one!) and Underland was an interesting foray into the world of caves and other underground natural phenomena.

The Snow Child brings the wilderness of Alaska 1920 to life and folds it into the story. My Last Continent does that with Antarctica, and I Am Still Alive is a story about a girl who has to find a way to survive in remote wilderness of Canada. All three covers have their own beauty about them, I think.

Jeff VanderMeer has a tendency to bring nature into his books and Annihilation is definitely no different. I’ve always loved this cover too. Circe is a bit of a stretch, but for some reason I think of nature when I think of her story. And Marquez’ One Hundred Years of Solitude took place in a fictional town in a valley somewhere in South America; while not a huge focus, I still think of the beauty of nature when I think this book.


What books have you read that have a nature focus? Or have beautiful covers that remind you of nature?

  1. Some of my favorite nature-related books/book covers are probably – House of Hollow by Krystal Sutherland (ya thriller/horror), A Wolf Called Romeo by Nick Yans (nonfiction about a wild wolf that became a regular visitor to the town of Juneau, Alaska and played with lots of dogs), and Emperors of the Deep by William McKeever (nonfiction about sharks).

    Of these, Hummingbird Salamander is my favorite, just stunning (and the way the typography is so subtle but also striking by blending together), I adored it. I’m very interested in learning more about it now.
