BB Love-A-Thon: Book Spine Poetry

Mini Challenge

The first challenge of the day was to create a poem using only the titles of books, so I've done just that!
It was so fun, if a a little challenging. My poem is a bit on the darker side, and was inspired by Rosamund Hodge's gorgeous Beauty and the Beast retelling, Cruel Beauty (which I finished at 1 AM this morning and can't stop fangirling over).

My books didn't look all that pretty lined up together, and I wanted to tweak the language a little bit so I  did a little photoshopping instead of just taking a picture. Hope you like it! 

Books I used:

The Dark Heroine by Abigail Gibbs
Cruel Beauty by Rosamund Hodge
Lips Touch: Three Times by Laini Taylor
The Shadow of the Wind by Carlos Ruiz Zafón
Linger by Maggie Stiefvater
Shiver by Maggie Stiefvater
