I’m back at work but my mind is still camping. It’s been a minute since I’ve done a book tag, and I remembered reading The Books and Nature Tag a few years ago, so I decided it was the perfect time to do it. Let’s get to it.
I found this tag here: The Books and Nature Tag – Better Off Reading (wordpress.com)
1. A book with a landscape on the cover
Naptown Blues is one of my favorite covers because of the landscape.
2. A book that deals with an environmental issue
The Northwoods Lake Series does a great job at bringing environmental issues into each story.
3. A book set in space
Skyward is the first book that comes to mind. I don’t read a lot of books set in space but this one is my favorite.
4. A book with an animal main character
The Very Hungry Catepillar is the only book I’ve read recently with an animal main character. I’m sure some are just slipping my mind but it’s all that I can come up with right now.
5. A natural literary setting you would love to be in
I’d love to be in the little rustic cottage from Weyward. The gardens sound lovely and the author did a great job at bringing the landscape to life.
6. A natural literary setting you would hate to be in
I would hate to be in What Moves the Dead. I don’t know about you, but a creepy sentient mold covered lake is great for a horror story, but I would not want to be there. Ugh. It gives me the creeps just thinking about it.
7. A story set in the woods
Hatchet is a longtime favorite of mine and it’s the first thing that comes to mind when I think about stories set in the woods.
8. A non-fiction book that talks about an environmental topic
I haven’t read a lot of non-fiction until recently so I don’t really have a good answer for this one.
9. A picture book with a natural theme
Aquicorn Cove does a great job at discussing environmental issues in a way that is fun to read. It’s a cute story with a great call to action.
10. A wildcard book
The Stranger in the Woods deserves to be on this list. While the story mostly focuses on the man’s mindset it also does a great job at telling how he survived in the woods for so long. It was a great read.
So that’s The Books and Nature Tag. If you want to play along, I tag you.
