Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme, created by The Broke and Bookish and is now hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl. This week’s TTT is the ten most recent reads. And this week our prompt is Books with Nature on the Cover.
The first three books I’d like to share are The Secret Garden, Ronja the Robber’s Daughter, and The Last Unicorn. In all three books there’s an element of the wonders and magic of nature and I adore all three books.
The Secret Garden, by Frances Hodgson Burnett
Ronia, The Robber’s Daughter, by Astrid Lindgren
The Last Unicorn, by Peter S. Beagle
These next two books are both on my TBR. I enjoyed Kalynn Bayron’s Cinderella is Dead and I’m looking forward to this new magical adventure. I just fell in love with the cover of Away with the Penguins and after reading the blurb I am only more excited to get to it! It’s about 85 year old Veronica McCreedy and she has no family or friends (that she knows of) to leave her wealth to ones she passes. She decides to go to Antarctica to see whether or not the scientists saving the penguins are worthy of inheriting her fortune. Plus, penguins!
This Poison Heart, by Kalynn Bayron
Away with the Penguins, by Hazel Prior
From the cold south, I’d like to continue in to the cold north. Here we have some tales from the Arctic with Northern Lights, Polar Bears, and freezing waters.
The Giant Bear: An Inuit Folktale, by Jose Angutinngurniq
Those Who Run in the Sky, by Aviaq Johnston
Taaqtumi: An Anthology of Arctic Horror Stories, by Aviaq Johnston
Drengen og Ånden i Fjeldet, by Bent Haller – I could only find this book in Danish and French. A cute story about a boy that wants to be a Polar Bear.
A Journey to the Mother of the Sea, by Mâliâraq Vebæk, illustrated by Aka Høegh
Denmark is getting warmer and more humid by the minute, so I might have gotten a bit homesick for the cold North with the last books xD
What are your fave book covers featuring nature?
