Okay, friends! This mini-challenge is a mash-up of bookish life and real life. One of things I love to do is travel and really outside of reading, I don’t have THAT many hobbies hahaha. So I’m mashing up books and places I’ve been! I always love being able to see that place in my mind when I read a book and it’s really exciting when I can picture a setting that’s happening in a book!
BETTER OFF FRIENDS — MILWAUKEE AREA
BETTER OFF FRIENDS was actually in the Milwaukee suburbs which is where my sister lives. I’ve passed Miller Park many times and Shane and I have even had our own little weekend in Milwaukee (aside from the times we’ve visited my sister). I don’t actually have many photos of the Milwaukee suburbs so I’ll share my pictures of our events around the city!
THE BOOK OF BROKEN HEARTS — COLORADO
Colorado is beautiful. There were a few scenes where the characters actually go up into the mountains and I could totally picture exactly what was going on! Here are the images that were in my head:
NANTUCKET BLUE and SUCH A RUSH (Not actually Nantucket or South Carolina)
I haven’t actually been to Nantucket and I’ve only been to South Carolina suburbs, so my frame of reference was along the lines of where Shane’s parents have their beach house in North Carolina. I could totally see similarities although, understandably, they’re not the same!
TIME BETWEEN US and DIVERGENT — Chicago area
I’m from the Chicago suburbs so it’s pretty easy for me to picture books that take place in Chicago! I actually pictured TIME BETWEEN US much like my own high school even though it wasn’t in Evanston, but it definitely had the same feel!
So that’s it! Those are my places! I actually could probably come up with a few more but I had to put this post together before I left for the day (our wedding reception venue has an open house!) so it’s a little hasty, but I had a lot of fun!
