Booking Through Thursday - Stormy Weather

Image
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.



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