Hi guys, this is always my favorite post of Loveathon – I love making book spine poetry and half the time I forget it exists! So here we go (the first one is my favorite, it’s almost a haiku and I love that it tells a story).

Mostly YA Lit’s 2016 Book Spine Poetry

When we collided

small bones, lost stars

This is where the world ends. 

Let the sky fall.

  1. Weirdly, I haven’t actually thought of doing this before! I’ll see if I can try and do this at home sometime this week. It looks like a very fun thing to do! Oh, and I really love the second one. :’) And maybe the third one too. Actually, they’re all pretty good.? Really nice post, Tiff!

  2. I love ALL of these Tiff ♥ fantastic job! I’ve never tried book spine poetry before but I want to – I just tend to get bogged down by trying to use only my favorite books and when it doesn’t really work I get discouraged. I have to try again soon 🙂

    I love book spine poetry; I like the one that starts with Under the Painted Sky; that one has some of my favorite books. 🙂

    Huh. I didn’t know this was a thing. The first one sounds really dramatic (haha) but I love the imagery system in the second one.

    I have never heard of book spine poetry but I think it is a great idea and is very fun!!! Want to try it on my own now!
