ThatRemindsMeOfABookSmallCongrats to Keely, winner of the hour 15 mini-challenge!

Hello everyone and congrats on making it to hour 15 of Dewey’s 24 Hour Read-a-Thon! Today I have a challenge for you inspired by one of my favorite Pinterest projects, a board where I pin pictures that match how I picture the world in a book. For this challenge, share a picture that captures the way you imagine a particular bookish world. Bonus points for not picking a picture intended to portray the book it reminded you of 🙂Not sure where to start? I find some of my best bookish world pictures on deviantart.com and, of course, on Pinterest. For some examples, you can check out my Fantasy Worlds Pinterest board. After you find an image, come back here and share a link to the image you found in a comment, then let me know what name you commented under in the Rafflecopter widget.  I’ll announce the winner at the end of hour 17.

      I haven’t read Tomorrow When The War Began, but just from reading the description, I can see why this would fit. Great selection!

    Definitely this Deviant Art Picture. There is a character in the Banned and Banished series that is stuck in the shape of a wolf in the first book, and in the final book finds out he has a child. It was for this child that he fought and died and for this child that his twin brother changed his ways to raise the child right.

      The name of location and the appearance are both perfect! I would definitely believe that you could find Peter Pan living there 🙂

    I’d have to say this one: http://lacomunidad.elpais.com/blogfiles/poeta-en-china/tokyogenso_27.jpg
    It reminds me of the post-apocalyptic world described in Isaac Marion’s Warm Bodies/The New Hunger, where the old meaningless trappings of humanity and modern life are still there, but being slowly taken back by the natural world as people die or flee to safe enclaves. R describes it as strangely peaceful, and that’s the feeling I get from this picture. Peaceful reclaiming of the land.

    I’m almost finished reading Hatchet by Gary Paulsen. A heart attack kills the pilot flying the single engine plane which Brian is the only passenger. Miraculously, he survives a crash landing in a dense Canadian wilderness and is left only with a hatchet (This happens in the first few chapters, so really no spoiler here). Anyway, there’s a lake (not huge, but big enough) and dense trees. I think this picture displays Brian’s remote environment the best. It doesn’t have majestic mountains like other Canadian lake pics.

    This house reminds me a lot of the Home (for Peculiars) when it was abandoned in Jacob’s time, in Miss Peregrines Home For Peculiar Children. It has lots of wooded areas around it, which matches the theme, and appears very run-down, old, haunted, and carrying a great deal of peculiarities and secrets. I think it would just be a really good setting for the house to be, if they, say, made a movie from the book.
    (although, I wouldn’t really want them too. A movie from that book would have to be done really well to meet the expectations of the book and be engaging, and I like imagining my own places and characters.)

      I haven’t read Number Four, but the orange fits with the cover art I’ve seen and I can imagine a scene like this taking place in the book based on the description. Beautiful picture too! Thanks for sharing 🙂

    Hey, is it okay if a cheerleader participates? Just for the challenge?

    It’s been a while since I’ve read Uglies but I always imagined the Pretties area to be very bright and colourful like this:

    or
    http://david-holland.deviantart.com/art/Scribble2-60815263

    Strobe, flashing lights everywhere. x)

    Also, I don’t think a description was given for the Lunar in the Lunar Chronicles but I kind of imagine it like this:

    Their military and technology seemed really advanced so that’s what I thought of.

      Absolutely! Thanks for joining in! I especially love the pictures you found for Uglies. The lighting really sets the right mood, I think.

    • DoingDewey

      I haven’t even heard of Atlas and that pictures makes me want to pick it up. So beautiful and it definitely has a Greek mythology feel to it.

    • DoingDewey

      What a beautiful, colorful picture! I especially like this because I just learned something – Texas is not all as brown as the bits I’ve seen 🙂

    I just finished Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children, and this illustration remember me of the atmosphere and the place where Jacob finds Emma and the said Home for Peculiar Children.

    Thanks for the challenge. Just what I needed!
