2017 Love-a-Thon: The Language of Poetry

The Love-a-Thon is an annual event that has been running since 2012, and it's continued to grow in the five years since then. It's meant to encourage positivity, form and strengthen relationships and to just be a whole lot of fun. This year, I'm co-hosting with Cee of The Novel HermitKristin of Super Space Chick & Mel of The Daily Prophecy! (P.S. If you're only discovering this event today, please know that you're still welcome to sign up to be a part of it!)

The book spine poetry challenge has always been one of our most popular ones across all platforms, and I'm so pleased to be hosting it yet again this year! It's real simple - all you have to do is to create a poem out of the titles of books. Whether you're sharing a photograph, filming a video where you read it out loud, writing out the titles into a post or whatever other creative thing you can come up with, I can't wait to read all of your poems! (For examples, you can check out my poems from 2013, 2014, 2015 and 2016.)

P.S. If you want to be entered in the giveaway for this challenge, please link us to your post for the challenge down below. Don't fret if you're not awake yet, as the linky will be open through February 20!

As I mentioned last year, I generally lean towards the traditional presentation when it comes to book spine poetry. I pull the books off my shelves, arrange them into little poems and then snap a photo (or two) to share. I didn't know what direction my poetry would take this year, but apparently, I'm feeling a bit melancholy and nostalgic. Hope you like the poem!

The books included in my poem are: All Our Yesterdays / Never Fade / Since You've Been Gone / When We Collided / The Unexpected Everything / The Start of Me and You / Where the Stars Still Shine / The Winner's Crime / The Kiss of Deception / Untold / The Heart of Betrayal / Unspoken / Tell Me Three Things / Every Last Word / Hello, Goodbye and Everything in Between / This Adventure Ends / The Last Time We Say Goodbye
