2013 Book Blogger Love-a-Thon || Mini-Challenge #2


It's time for the second mini-challenge of the day! Since it's now bright and early and time to start waking up, we figured that you'd knock back a cup of coffee or tea and be ready for this challenge. It's time to put your creative thinking cap on!

What do you need to do? Grab a few of your books (it can be any amount!) and make up a poem using the titles. Yep, this is some book spine poetry, people! 

Don't forget to link up in the linky below! Jump around and see what everyone's been doing for this particular mini-challenge. I can't wait to see everyone's creative efforts for this one, particularly because I've always loved the idea of book spine poetry but have never done it before.

See my best attempts at book spine poetry below! Bear in mind that I was working with a limited quantity of books since I'm in the Philippines (and not in my hometown, where my book collection is).

The Duke & I,
just like heaven.
It's in his kiss every day.

Safe haven:
an offer from a gentleman fallen in love.

    1. Isn't it such a wonderful idea? The fact is we all want that Prince Charming to come and sweep us off our feet ;)

  2. This was a lot harder than I thought but I love this challenge. I probably should've taken pictures of spines too so people knew the books I used. Oh well!! Great job! =D
