I find it easier to put the mini-challenge responses in a separate post from my updates, so here we go. I LOVE mini-challenges, so I'm pretty excited...
Today's challenge is hosted by Smash Attack Reads and it's another book spine poem! But this time we have to stick to one genre of books... of course, I chose fantasy (it's the genre I own the most of, so makes things a bit easier). It's 12 books long and uses 12 extra words, and I ended up having to take the picture in three:
A game of thrones in Fantasyland:
The Iron King on his throne of glass;
The High Lord in his castle in the air.
Each sips poison from enchanted glass,
As the novice, cursed with eyes the colour of magic,
Claims the crown of Dalemark.
I'm not sure if the second title is 'Fantasyland' or 'The Tough Guide to Fantasyland'. If it's the latter, then replace that title with 'City of Ruin', which I own but haven't taken a photo of.
Today's challenge is to make an acrostic poem, hosted by Harley Bear Book Blog. The task is to take a book title and use each letter to make a word. Here's mine:
Create a cover! This is being hosted by I Talk Books, and the challenge is simple: re-design a book cover! I picked Wool by Hugh Howey, and created this with the help of my husband. Enjoy! ;-)
Book spine poem time! This is being hosted at Escape Through the Pages.
The rules are: create a poem using book titles. You get as many extra words as you have books in your poem. I'm already breaking the rules because I actually have two more words than I do books. Technically, I can do it without cheating, as I can replace 'I call' with 'are', and remove 'and', but I think this throws off the rhythmn a bit, so I prefer this version.
This is a little tribute to the poem within the book The Stars My Destination, which is also one of the books in the stack. :-)
I've titled it:
I'm the master puppeteer,
And Neverwhere my nation.
Magic and stone I call my home,
The stars my destination.
