If your Dungeons and Dragons class is Druid, you’ll know exactly the appeal of nature magic books. Nature itself already feels wild and awe-inspiring. Whether you’re walking amidst redwoods that are older than you and will likely outlive you, contemplating the vastness of the ocean, or admiring the minuscule feathers on a hummingbird, nature has a magic of its own. The idea of being able to tap into and harness that power is tempting — not the superpowers of an alien race or science gone wrong, but abilities that require you to be in tune with the natural world.
That’s why we asked you to share are your favorite YA nature magic books! You gave us books about teens wielding the winds, controlling the tides, making potent plant potions, and more. If anyone needs us, we’ll just be over here trying our hand at some elemental magic.
