Holiday Break Reading Challenge Activity #4

Today's challenge is taken from Stella Matutina's blog. Here is what you need to do:

1 - List the title and author of the book you are currently reading.

2 - Use any photo hosting site (Google Images, Flickr, Photobucket, FlickrCC, etc.) to find photos related to your book. "The image(s) you post need to have something to do with the book you're currently reading. You can post a painting or photograph that makes you think of the story or the characters, choose a few pictures that highlight some of the book's most important elements, or do a little of both. The only thing you can't do is just post the cover art and leave it at that, though you're welcome to include a cover image alongside your other selections." (Stella Matutina)

3 - Put a short description with each picture explaining what it means to the book.

Here is my example:

I'm reading THE BONESHAKER by Cherie Priest

It is a steampunk novel set in Seattle around the time of the Civil War.

After a terrible accident during the test run of an invention of a drilling machine that could uncover the gold under the Alaskan ice, a large part of Seattle was destroyed.

It didn't take long for the people of Seattle to realize, in addition to the destruction of the city, a terrible toxic gas was being released from the tunnels created by the drilling machine. The gas, called The Blight, created zombies.


Sixteen years later, Briar Wilkes, the widow of the inventor of the terrible machine, lives a life of hard work in a factory, attempting to raise her teenage son while living down the reputation her husband left behind, as well as her father. Zeke, Briar's son, is desperate to change the way people see his grandfather and goes into the dangerous part of the Seattle, forcing Briar to go in after him.

Steampunk Girl by nullalux.

There are flying machines in the story, but I haven't got to that part yet. I'm anxious to see what happens.

Now it is your turn. Use Mr. Linky to link to your own photo explanation of the book you are reading.
