Hello, lovelies! Happy Earth Day! I thought it would be fitting today to talk about some books I enjoyed that involve climate change. Now, I read a lot of science fiction, so many of these books the world has passed the tipping point, and the world as we know it is ending because of climate change.
The Ministry for the Future by Kim Stanley Robinson
I highly recommend the audiobook for this one. There’s a full cast of narrators and they tell the story so well. We follow a ministry that’s set up by the governments of the world with the goal of battling the damage that people are doing to the Earth. I thought this story was a really interesting way to talk about climate change.
The Final Six by Alexandra Monir
The world as we know it is ending. In this book, the world is suffering from extreme and frequent natural disasters. But six kids are selected to explore another planet for a new potential place for humans. Climate change isn’t the focus of the book, but I liked seeing this author’s version of the end of the world.
Fool Me Once by Ashley Winstead
This is a romance novel. But the two love interests are ex’s reuniting to work together on getting support for a bill that would switch all of Texas’ public transportation to electric vehicles. So, it still sort of works for this topic and I really loved it so much that I wanted to include it.
Goddess in the Machine by Lora Beth Johnson
I’m not going to say too much, but I definitely recommend this one. I think it’s going to land on my end-of-the-year favorites.
The Ones We’re Meant to Find by Joan He
I don’t know that the world ‘ended’ via climate change. But there’s definitely some funky stuff going on with our dear Mother Earth in this one.
The Nature of Witches by Rachel Griffin
This follows a witch at a magical school. But the twist that Griffin put into the story with involving the magic with the Earth was incredibly interesting.
Dry by Neal Shusterman & Jarrod Shusterman
What happens when California runs out of water? I loved this book so much. I will recommend it forever.
Do you have any favorite books that involve climate change?
Keep on reading lovelies, Amanda.
