Book spine poem: Scandalous summer

Here’s another book spine poem, this time using books that don’t belong to my children.


The husband’s secret
The naked mom
Summer people chasing fire

I have only just started The Husband’s Secret, but I get the impression that it’s about a life-changing, world-shattering secret that rocks the lives of many people. Well, the book jacket pretty much says that verbatim so I guess it’s less of an impression I got and more of some words I actually read. Anyway I’m constantly guessing at what the secret is going to be, my imagination running wild with different scandalous scenarios. That’s what inspired the poem.

I’m also trying like hell to finish Cold Days before Friday, when Jim Butcher will do an AMA on reddit! So excited for that and trying to get caught up beforehand. I know I can always read it later, this being the Internet, but it’s not the same.

Authors: Liane Moriarty, Brooke Burke, Elin Hilderbrand, Nora Roberts, and thanks to Stan at Sentence First for the idea.

Book Spine Poem: Dad is Fat

Came across book spine poems yesterday, thanks to Stan at Sentence first. Thought I’d try it out, too.


Dad’s Book.
This little piggy
eating the alphabet!
What am I?
Dad is Fat.

I don’t have many books at my place currently. Most of them are in storage, and I often use the library for anything new. But, my children have a lot of books. These belong to them, except the last one.
