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!
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.
