[2016 Book Blogger Love-A-Thon] — Book Haul Spine Poetry



Realistically, 1/3 of my haul is books I’m borrowing. Blogger friendships have been kind to me–thanks Amanda (blog @ Brains, Books, and Brawn).

The Book Blogger Love-A-Thon is a blogging event hosted by Alexa @ Alexa Loves Books, Cee @ The Novel Hermit, Hazel @ Stay Bookish, and Mel @ The Daily Prophecy.

The difficult thing about these book haul spine poetry posts is being creatively limited to the hauled titles and when you only have a handful…damn. 

It also doesn’t help being super lazy and didn’t feel like moving away from my desk when I started writing this post so I swiveled my chair and took the photos on my bed instead LOL. OH WELL.

  1. I know what you’re talking about when it comes to being limited with books. I own many books in Croatian that I couldn’t use for this challenge, so I had to use those english books I own the best way I could.


  2. So true about the limitations! Last year I only managed to put together one poem but now that a year has passed, there were a lot more possibilities. Lol. For someone who wasn’t in the mood to get up, you still managed to make sense with your poems — sort of.
