Love-a-thon Mini-Challenge #3: Fancy Yourself a Poet?


Hello lovely people and welcome to Love-a-thon 2017, hosted by these lovely ladies: Alexa @ Alexa Loves Books, Cee @ The Novel Hermit, Kristin @ Super Space Chick, and Mel @ The Daily Prophecy.

This was a crowd favorite last year and I’m so excited to be doing it again this year: it’s book spine poetry time! Pretty much you make a poem out of the spines of books, so it can be as abstract as you want it, or maybe you’re magical and can make a beautiful poem that’s insightful and enlightening out of it. Who knows!?

Anyway, let’s jump right into the poems (which I’ve also posted on my Instragram and used #loveathon as one of the tags).


Tell me three things;
every. last. word.


The girl of Fire and Thorns:
ensnared, splintered, unhinged.
V a n i s h …e d.


[An] Empire of Storms;
a Court of Thorns,
and Roses.
A crooked kingdom.
But, within:
a torch against the
ever the

Oooh, what nice poems. I love this challenge and I want to do more spine poetry outside of the Love-a-thon. I think I’ll have to do just that!

Let’s Chat! ≧◡≦

Which one was your favorite poem? Would you have chosen something different? What kinds of poems do you like? Romantic, tragic, funny, abstract, larger than life concepts. Tell me all the things!

Love-a-thon Mini Challenge #3: Book Spine Poetry


Hey guys! It’s mini-challenge #3 time for Love-a-thon, which is book spine poetry! If you don’t know what that is, it’s pretty much making a poem out of the spines of books.

Here are the ones I came up with:


These broken stars: ignite me.
Unravel me.
S h a t t e r m e.


An ember in the ashes –
catching fire.


Daughter of smoke & bone:
Exquisite captive.
Uprooted, alienated.
None of the above.

What are some of the poems you can come up with with your own books? I’d love to hear them!
