Book Spine Poetry

Elza has been hosting #NewYearsReads2021, a series of challenges and games on social media designed to kick off the new year of reading. The photo challenge prompt for today was “Book Spine Poetry”.

CJ decided to give it a whirl with books from our Middle Grade shelves. Here’s what she came up with!

The honest truth:
parked
trapped
every day

waiting for normal
nothing ever happens here
estranged grump
the gauntlet in real life
absolutely normal chaos

tut-tut

The crossroads

wish
bloom
sweep
smile
wonder
bliss

Some kind of courage

Ambush the wish

Hatching magic

the color of my words
charmed life

sunny side up
wizard at work
things that are absolutely truly
extraordinary

Check out #NewYearsReads2021 and share your own adventures with book spine poetry!
