Top Ten Tuesday: Books w/ Nature on the Cover

Foxes in the Forest - Leslie Abram Photography

Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in January of 2018. It was born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together.


  1. God’s Own Country by Ross Raisin
God's Own Country: Raisin, Ross: 9780141033525: Amazon.com: Books
A dark novel with a psychologically disturbed protagonist. What’s not to love?

2. Ghost Wall by Sarah Moss

Amazon.com: Ghost Wall: A Novel (9780374161927): Moss, Sarah: Books
When academic types go ‘Lord of the Flies’…

3. Across the Green Grass Fields by Seanan McGuire

Across the Green Grass Fields (Wayward Children, 6): McGuire, Seanan:  9781250213594: Amazon.com: Books
This is one of my favorite series, and every time I finish the latest book I can’t wait for the next one to come out.

4. Music for Tigers by Michelle Kadarusman

Music for Tigers: Kadarusman, Michelle: 9781772780543: Amazon.com: Books
A cute ecological story with a Neurodiverse supporting character.

5. The Music of Dolphins by Karen Hesse

The Music of Dolphins: Hesse, Karen: 9780590897983: Amazon.com: Books
A short but powerful read with a tragic ending.

6. King and the Dragonflies by Kacen Callender

King and the Dragonflies: Callender, Kacen: 9781338129335: Amazon.com: Books
My favorite book by Kacen Callender. A subtle and emotionally wrenching exploration of identity, grief, and prejudice.

7. Wild Blues by Beth Kephart

Wild Blues (9781481491532): Kephart, Beth, Sulit, William: Books -  Amazon.com
This book was a little on the weird side but it had great character development and was a fast-paced read.

8. West by Carys Davies

West: A Novel: Davies, Carys: 9781501179341: Amazon.com: Books
Westerns aren’t usually my genre but I enjoyed this short, potent novel about a man’s foolhardy quest and the daughter he leaves behind.

9. Where Things Come Back by John Corey Whaley

Where Things Come Back | Book by John Corey Whaley | Official Publisher  Page | Simon & Schuster
Even though this book wasn’t nearly as good as Highly Illogical Behavior I still enjoyed it. I think John Corey Whaley is a great writer and people don’t talk about him nearly enough.

10. Minnow by James E. McTeer II

Minnow: McTeer II, James E.: 9781938235245: Amazon.com: Books
I picked this up at the library impulsively- it’s a good story loaded with atmosphere and I’m looking forward to seeing what this author writes next.

Have you read any of these books, or are any of them on your TBR? Let me know in the comments! 🙂

  1. ALL OF THESE ARE SO GORGEOUS!! I though the theme of nature would be pretty hard but I love the one of gods own country. And I’ve always wanted to try ghost wall – it looks great!! I got a bit sidetracked with this weeks ttt and ended up doing the top ten worst (/best?) young adult tropes. Let me know what you think 😊 https://hundredsandthousandsofbooks.blog/2021/05/12/ttt-11-5-21-you-know-its-a-young-adult-book-when/
