TTT: Book with Weather Events in the Title or On the Cover

Top Ten Tuesday: Weather-related titles or covers

As you know, I try very hard to list only books I've read for this weekly activity. I had to look back for three years worth of books to find ten titles that fit.

1. Four Seasons in Rome by Anthony Doeer
I know. A season isn't weather but it implies a changing of the weather.

2. Rain Rising by Courtne Comrie
If you've read this book you know the main character's name is Rain, so now you know how hard up I am to find weather-related titles.

3. Don't Call Me Hurricane by Ellen Hagen
Ah. Found a good one even though the book isn't a favorite!

4. A Swim in the Pond in the Rain by George Saunders
This one refers to rain rain. (See note above.)

5. The City of Mist by Carlos Ruiz Zafon
Mist/Fog? I'll take it.

6. Wind by Carol Thompson
A cute children's book.

7. The Rain in Portugal by Billy Collins
I love this poet!

8. The Four Winds by Kristin Hannah
Ah. My list is longer than I thought it would be.

9. Fifty Words for Rain by Asha Lemmie
Another rain reference.

10. Why Are Storms Named After People and Bullets Remain Nameless by Tanaya Winder
A poet whose last name is rather weather-ish.

11. Weather by Jenny Offill
I had to look back for three years to find ten titles of books about weather. I knew this book, Weather, was somewhere back there and decided to stop when I found it.

And for a recent weather event involving me: A waterspout off the Florida Keys last week. Photo credit: Anne Bennett
