Seasons, Elements, and Weather {Monthly Motif Aug Check In}

August Monthly Motif Reading Challenge

This months motif/theme is a fun one. I realized that I haven’t really read much of anything where the seasons, elements or weather played a big role in the story. I’ve run into this a couple of times while reading some dystopian books, but not a lot. I’m excited to read a few more books that fit this theme…

Seasons, Elements, and Weather

“Read a book in which the season, the elements, or the weather plays a role in the story.”

This theme is pretty new to us so I only have a few recommendations for you but they’re a good place to start.

Books Where Weather & The Elements Play A Big Role

Happy Reading!

  1. […] AUGUST – Seasons, Elements, & Weather Read a book in which the season, the elements, or the weather plays a role in the story. […]

  2. This is a great category for August, in Britain the weather is ALL OVER THE PLACE. My chosen read was:

    Not A Drop To Drink by Mindy McGinnis


    1. I like how you did your blog! I keep contemplating making one but I never seem to get around to it and I wonder if I have enough to say about any certain thing I read. Sometimes what I feel and think concerning a story comes easily and sometimes, and I noticed that especially when I don’t care for the story, my reviews tend to be lazy. lol who’d read that

      1. @Dorothy Thanks! We don’t do reviews of each book for just that reason, but there’s other ways to discuss our love of books 🙂

  3. I read ‘Winter Tales’ by George Mackay Brown for this motif – a wonderful little collection of winter-themed short stories set in Orkney.

  4. Last book I read with this theme, started in August and completed yesterday: “Before the Rains” by Dinah Jefferies. A historical love story.

  5. I read A Mountain Between Us by Charles Martin. Weather and elements most certainly have a starring role in this book.


  6. I read another book for this challenge: The summer book by Tove Jansson
    Interesting but I didn’t liked it so much

  7. I finished The Void of Mist and Thunder by James Dashner. It was okay, but not one of my favorites.


  8. Just finished Under a Black Sky (Daniel Trokic Series #6) by Inger Wolf. Loved it. Didn’t realize it was the 6th til posting this LOL figures. My brain… https://www.goodreads.com/review/show/2088861947

  9. I read The Girl In The Ice (DCI Erika Foster, #1) by Robert Bryndza Really liked this one

    1. Good choice!

      1. yeah, I really enjoyed it. If the local library had more of the series, I would definitely read them!

  10. Second book for this challenge for me :-p
    A classical one: “a midsummer night’s dream” by William Shakespeare

    1. Great choice!

  11. I found and read “Ice hunt” by James Rollins! 😀
    I liked it but not so much as I thought :-/ there are too many pursuits and fights for me. But the reading is sliding and interesting

    1. It was a pretty intense book, wasn’t it?

      1. yes, it was 🙂
