Top Ten Tuesday: Books About Thunderstorms

Hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl

A dramatic photo of lighting striking the ground just after sunset. You can see the dim outline of a tree and a house on the land, but everything else is dark. The sky above is partially black, partially purple near where the lightning is striking, and partially lit up from the lighting itself. Assuming I’m able to remain safely indoors during them, thunderstorms are my favourite type of bad weather.

There’s something majestic about seeing the entire sky light up for a moment as lightning strikes in the distance or hearing the deep rumble of thunder as a storm gathers strength.

It’s like watching nature’s version of an action scene!

Here are some books from a variety of genres that are at least partially about thunderstorms. I really thought there might be more of them, but maybe someday there will be.

2. Frankenstein by Mary Wollstonecraft Shelley

3. Trail of Lightning (The Sixth World, #1) by Rebecca Roanhorse

4. Storm by George R. Stewart

5. A Magical History (The Mauve Legacy, #1) by Emma Hart

6. Rain: Four Walks in English Weather by Melissa Harrison

7. The Invention of Clouds: How an Amateur Meteorologist Forged the Language of the Skies
by Richard Hamblyn
