Book Spine Poetry: #LoveAThon Mini-Challenge #3


Good Morning lovelies!

Welcome to day 2 of Love-a-Thon! I’m getting a later start to today so I’m hoping to catch up and visit a bunch of people’s blogs to go comment crazy 🙂 I really enjoyed last night’s Twitter chat! It was so much fun talking with everyone and that question about favorite food made me soo hungry haha. I’m sad I missed this morning’s chat but I just couldn’t wake up haha so I’m planning on doing tonight’s chat. 2/4 is good right?

Anyway this morning’s challenge from our hosts: Alexa (Alexa Loves Books), Cee (The Novel Hermit), Hazel (Stay Bookish) and Mel (The Daily Prophecy) is to create poetry from book spines! This is always a favorite of mine for #LoveAThon! If you want more info on the mini-challenge you can visit Alexa’s post here. 🙂

Okay, without further adieu:


by NicoleLynn

On Dublin street
we were liars,
half bad
[and] white trash beautiful
risking it all.

[with] nothing
[to] confess
[playing the] symphony for the city of the dead
[and creating the] legacy of kings.

So this one was a little rough. I have a limited supply of books up here in Boston, but I think I managed something decent haha. I can’t wait to go look at everyone else’s!!

Thanks for stopping by and happy day 2 of Love-a-Thon!

    You did a great job! I love that “half bad” was after “we were liars.” Just so great.

    I loved reading everyone’s poetry. I had to come back around after looking at people’s introduction posts to check out the poetry posts. 🙂

    Nicole, I actually quite like your poem! It’s well-done. Makes me think of a crowd a la Raven Boys and Gossip Girl, and their antics. Beautifully done!

      Oh! I wanted to let you know when I clicked your Poetry link on Alexa’s site, it didn’t redirect here. I don’t know if it’s a problem on my end, but I wanted to let you know!
