Love-A-Thon 2016: Mini Challenge #3


Hello lovely readers! I'm here with Mini Challenge #3 of the Love-A-Thon hosted by AlexaCeeHazel, and Mel!

The third mini challenge is Book Spine Poetry! At first I thought that this was going to be no fun because I didn't think I had the creativity or library resources to come up with anything good, but once I really got into it and started planning it, I started to sing a different tune! I think that what I came up with is actually pretty sweet!


Okay, so when I was putting this together, I was feeling like it was more of a book spine story than book spine poetry. It feels more like a story than poetry to me. Kind of your run of the mill, orphaned queen story, but a story all the same.

Basically what I was thinking when I put it together was:

The Midnight Queen was uprooted from her kingdom by a darker shade of magic that sieged and stormed the kingdom. The kingdom fell and panic and pandemonium ensued. Then through the dark comes the orphaned Queen on a road for vengeance, swearing death against the imposter Queen. There are violent ends and in the afterlight things all work out. 

Requiem felt like a final sounding word to put at the end. It kind of is, but the definition of it is 'an act or token of remembrance' or 'a celebration of the dead'. So along with it being the book title with the most final sounding word for a title, they're also celebrating getting their kingdom back and remembering the brave souls who died for the cause.

So, what do you think of my book spine poetry? Is it gold or what? :)
