Unintentional Novel Title Slam!

Saturdays I don't usually post but:

Abby (crit partner shout out!) emailed me and was all "this would be fun" where I was thinking "ugh. I can't do that. I would have to think and stuff" but I totally trusted her and it WAS fun. So...

Friday, Jen Daiker over at Unedited made some lovely poetry with her books, which is apparently crazy fun bit of stuff to do. As I have already said. But it was her that brought this to Abby's idea-full mind who passed the idea on to me. So, thank those two.

I may have taken some drugs. And by drugs I mean medication. I'm a whiner when I'm sick. Even if I know it isn't that bad(this is just a sore throat), I still throw myself a pity party so excuse me if this has been nonsensical thus far. Anyway!

Here is my entry into this TBR Pile Novel Title Poetry Slam Thingy! (Abby is providing the other poetry side to the "slam" on her blog. Random poetry-blogging-show-down going on here...FYI)

So here you go!

 Fade, Beautiful Creatures
The Pillars of the Earth Die for You
The Iron King is

I bring that poetry stuffs right? You like how they are all artfully arranged, semi-chaotically. I must be a frikkin' genius. (you can totally see haunted lamp gathering dust in the corner. Creepy kitty was there too for a while, but she wouldn't sit still for a picture.)

My TBR pile is bigger than this but there are some in it I am ashamed to have not finished, so they couldn't be included. Ever have a book like that? Just really awesome writing and captured your attention until...something else came along and you just stopped? I have 3. They are like these things just giving me the evil eye all the dang time. 

 Oh well. Anyway. Point is, it's time to head over to Abby's blog and see what she came up with! So Scoot!
Happy weekending!


  1. Yay! Love it! I also didn't include a couple- mainly because the flash kept bouncing off the plasticlear of the library books, so I took those out.

  2. Haha, that's a cool idea, making poetry from your pile of books.

    Since I'm spending this fucking Saturday in the office, and needed some entertainment right now, I grabbed 5 books from my bookshelf, and piled them up. This is what I got:

    Supersymmetry and Supergravity
    A Hero of Our Time
    Numerical Analysis
    On the Road
    The Changing Earth

    I happened to have a couple of novels in my shelf (some friends borrowed them), so I put science and fiction books every second. Maybe I'll post the picture on my blog when I get home tonight >:)

    Cold As Heaven

  3. Super cool! Headed over to Abby's to check hers out.

  4. Nice poem, and I can relate to the putting down of books when something else comes along and then it's until I pick them up again.
    Here's mine:

    WAKE to

  5. Jennie, She so won!

    Ian, NICE! Love it!

  6. I told Abby that if the pile was big enough, you'd have a winning NaNo project!

  7. Fun! If my TBR pile were actually a pile and not a trail of books all over the place... maybe I could make one! ;)

  8. Ha, love it! Such a fun idea. I know exactly what you mean about those novels in the TBR pile giving you the evil eye. It's usually worse for me because they actually ARE good, I just stopped for some reason!

  9. I saw that one Jen's blog, and I thought it as a fantastic idea! Good to see others taking parr, too - I love yours!

    Hope you're having a good weekend!

  10. And could I make any more typos? I'm on fire today!

  11. You guys are super awesome for linking me and joining in the fun!!! I love when the inspiration moves to others!!!! Great book choices (some I need to add to my TBR list!)

  12. This is so cool! I first saw it on Tahereh's blog

    and thought. WOW! So clever!

    Yours is really great :-) I haven't tried to make one yet. Maybe I'm lazy... It just looks difficult!

  13. Love your poem! Your blog design is really pretty by the way. I blinked several times. Haha :)

  14. Wow - this is a great idea! Such a lovely poem - I'm playing catch up on my blog reads, so I'll scoot on over to Abby's and Jen's in a minute. Now, I've got to go pile up some books.... :)

  15. I love your artful poetry.
    Hope you are feeling better. Sore throats are horrible.

  16. Mad skills, poet girl. Thanks for visitng my blog! (;

  17. Love it! Very impressed. I've a stack of new books coming to my hot little hands soon, might have to give it a go with those :)


  18. Jo- Thank you! Was a pleasure to be there!

    Rachael- Do it! I would love to see what you come up with!

  19. Love it! It's beautiful, in a haunting way :)

  20. Fun! I'm going to have to do this! I'm headed over to Abby and Jen right now!

  21. Oh man...that's really cool! I love your "poetry!" And your blog is great...I'm glad I found it! :)
