    Ooh nice! I just snapped a pic of one of my TBR stacks, so I wasn’t too creative either!

    I am no poet either, so it took me a while staring at the pile of books on my desk to come up with something… At least yours involved more books! I like it though. Sounds dark! (And of course, old follower via Bloglovin ;) )

      Thanks, Asti. I just grabbed some of my favorites and ordered them in a way that made sem-sense :)

    That’s quite the ominous poem there…but I like it! I doubt I’d be very creative if I attempted this one, so well done! Have a great Friday :)

    Oh, I’m not a poet either, but I agree that this is a cool idea! And you did a good job, too. I doubt I’d be able to compose a poem half as good as that – even with the help of book spines. :P
