Welcome to Climate Change Books!
A growing number of readers are looking for good books about climate change, including climate fiction, climate nonfiction, and climate poetry. And a growing number of authors are publishing some of the greatest books with climate themes that have been published to date. There are also some climate-themed books hitting the shelves that aren’t quite as good from a literary perspective or may not be quite right for you personally in spite of the value they hold for other readers. This being the case, how can you decide what climate change book to read next?
One of the best ways to make this decision is by reading reviews! Not just any old reviews, but book reviews that are written with an emphasis on examining the climate themes present in the book. Because a book that may not resonate with a general interest reviewer may have something vital to say about the climate crisis, and a book that some reviewers love for its literary merits may have next to nothing to say about the climate crisis. Reading a review that examines the climate themes of the book can help you decide whether or not you’d like to add it to your reading list.
Rather than list all of our reviews on one page, we’ve organized them into several categories, listed below. We also have several reading lists that are based on the work of dedicated climate book reviewers who have written many reviews from a climate perspective.
