Book Spine Poetry


How was everyone’s Monday? I have always liked Mondays, new starts and all but anyway. I was in need of an idea for today’s post so I turned to google and found THIS post by Vivatramp and loved it so thanks for the inspiration. These are the rules as far as I can discern:


  1. You pick out some books from your bookshelf and turn the titles into a piece of poetry.
  2. You can add punctuation, but no words.
  3. You must take a photo of your stacked titles in the order of the poem.
  4. List the books and their authors that you used.

This is much harder than it sounds – to have it fit together and make sense, so mine uses many commas and colons to have it make any sense and even with that it is very abstract. I have been enjoying writing poetry recently and this was no exception, I really recommend you try it.



The Start of Me and You:
Easy, Soul Mates, Fated.
By your Side Forever.
Did I Mention I Love You?

One of Us Is Lying, Up to No Good.
On the Fence, Nemesis, Silence.
The Truth about Forever:
The Beauty of The End.

The Books I Used:

Title: Love Song by Sophia Bennett

The Start of Me and You by Emery Lord
Easy by Tammara Webber
Soul Mates by L.A Weatherly
Fated by Alyson Noel
By Your Side by Kasie West
Forever by Maggie Stiefvater
Did I Mention I Love You? by Estelle Maskame
Treason by Berlie Doherty
One of Us Is Lying by Karen M. McManus
Up to No Good by Vicotria Corby
On the Fence by Kasie West
Nemesis by Brendan Reichs
Silence by Becca Fitzpatrick
The Truth about Forever by Sarah Dessen
The Beauty of the End by Debbie Howells

That took more of a sadder turn towards the end but it flowed well-ish so I did it, I swear I tried keeping it positive. You really should try it because it’s harder than it looks and it was quite fun. I look forward to seeing your attempts. And if you would like to see more writing from me, poetry or otherwise I will endeavour to meet your needs my book bugs. Enjoy the rest of your Monday.

Thanks and Happy Reading,
