We like to take pictures of books to show off what we’ve been reading.Â But, face it, it can get boring to look at stacks of books on Instagram over and over.
I try to get creative with my book pictures even if not everyone is as excited about it as I am, like in this picture I took for World Rabies Day.
Happy World Rabies Day! Me: Freckles, give me your best rabies face! Freckles: My mom is soooooo embarrassing. #rabies #book #bookstagram #currentlyreading #dog
Today let’s get creative with our international books!Â The challenge is to make a photograph that captures the setting of the book.
The main characters in Finding Nouf are trying to find a girl in the Saudi Arabian desert so I photographed the book lost in a vast field of sand.
If you follow my line of sight quite a few miles straight out from this Florida shoreline, you get to the setting of War of the Whales – a book about whales beaching in the Bahamas.
Central and South America
Atomik Aztek is an alternate history in which the Aztec defeat the Spanish. I paired it with clay pottery animals that I hand carried back from Costa Rica.
The Blue Fox, set in Iceland, is paired with my wool horse ornament that I picked up at the airport in Iceland this spring.
It’s Harry Potter time. This is me at Platform 9 3/4 at King’s Cross in London and my Hogwarts mug from Universal Florida.

This is such a good collection of photos! Love the Harry Potter one with the owl mug! The war of the whales is gorgeous as it makes you want to step right into the picture. The Zombie one is clever – scary though! Very apt for Halloween
