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

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. 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

      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

        @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 🙂

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

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

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

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

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

    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
