High Summer Read-a-thon: Challenge

This challenge is hosted by the Book Snob. We're to post pictures of the locations/actual palces from one of the books we are reading. I'm currently reading What a Demon Wants by Kathy Love

In it the main character Ellina lives in a shotgun style (modified) house in New Orleans, Louisiana. I've found a picture of a similar home...although I don't think her's is pink. I would totally live in this sort of house! Heck! I'd even leave it pink!

I also included a picture of the French Quarter! I've totally been to this place too! :) I love New Orleans!


  1. LOVE that building in New Orleans! When I went in 1999, Anne Rice still lived there and I got to see her house when we did the Garden District tour. I have the pictures somewhere. It was awesome! I loved New Orleans, but our visit was so short. I'd like to go in the winter when it's not so hot and stay for a week!

    Great job! I'm going to try to do mine tonight or tomorrow.

  2. I'd never heard of a shotgun house, leave alone seen one! It looks interesting, though I have trouble with the bright pink...:D

  3. OK, I love the pink house. Maybe that is where John Cougar got his inspiration for the song?
