Booking Through Thursday - Stormy Weather

Booking Through Thursdays is hosted by Booking Through Thursdays!

This Week's Question : What’s your book with weather events? Hurricanes? Tornadoes? Blizzards? Real? Fiction? Doesn’t matter … weather comes up a lot in books, so there’s got to be a favorite somewhere, huh?



I love snow. So it should be blizzards but I am really having a hard time choosing. I really love all kinds of weather in a book. They all suggest adventure, suspense maybe terror. Hmm. I guess I will go with blizzards because two books came to mind as I read the question and they both deal with snow.


Ordeal by Hunger: the Story of the Donner Party  Alive: The Story of the Andes Survivors

Oh no! I just thought, they both deal with cannibalism. Maybe I should choose tornadoes. 

The Wonderful Wizard of Oz

LOL! "Alive" might be too much for me during a snow storm. ;)

My Thursday!

Blizzards freak me out, literary or literal! Good examples btw.

I haven't read Alive but I did see the film - really good but also disturbing.
Thanks for stopping by.

cannibalism!!! i'm sure the book about the donner party would be interesting! and, alive, while tragic, is really a good book! :D

Good answer! The Wizard of Oz seems to be the favorite "weather book" for a lot of people - I really need to read it. I've read Alive, but don't like to think about it!

Alive wouldn't be good for me either.

Hmm, as much as I love snow I think I'd go with tornadoes too if cannabilism is on the cards lol!

My BTT is here if you'd like a look.
