It’s time once again for Connect Five Friday, hosted at Book Date by Kathryn – the meme where we share five book/reading things that connect in some way.
Today, I came across several blogs that posted book spine poetry (Check here) I have tried my hand at this a few times and enjoyed the hunt for books that would work together. It inspired me to create my own spine poem, just 5 books, using only the books I have now from the library (40 to choose from)and plan to read.
Here it is:
The Wright Sister
Fierce, free and full of fire.
The great realization
Never too old for love
Here are the books with highlights from Goodreads):
The Wright Sister by Patty Dann
“An epistolary novel of historical fiction that imagines the life of Katharine Wright and her relationship with her famous brothers, Wilbur and Orville Wright.“
Fierce, Free and Full of Fire by Jen Hatmaker
“No more hiding or people-pleasing up in here, sisters. No more being sidelined in your own life. It is time for us to be brave, to claim our gifts and quirks and emotions. You are set free and set up and set on fire.“
The Great Realization by Tomos Roberts, illus. by Nomoco
“A post-pandemic bedtime tale that has captured the hearts of millions.
First performed in response to the Coronavirus pandemic, Tomos Roberts’ inspiring poem, with its message of hope and resilience, has been viewed over 60 million times and translated into over 20 languages worldwide.”
Finding Grace by Donna VanLiere
“Finding Grace is the powerful, often humorous, and deeply moving story of one woman’s journey of broken dreams. It is the story of how a painful legacy of the past is confronted and met with peace. This book is for anyone who has struggled to understand why our desires- even the simplest ones-are sometimes denied or who has questioned where God is when we need him most.”
Never Too Old for Love by Rosie Harris
“It’s never too late to fall in love … Now in her seventies and widowed for the past three years, Mary Wilson never expected to find love again. But when a kindly stranger helps her home with her shopping and she invites him in for a cup of tea, it marks the start of a slow-burning friendship.”
Great spine poetry Bev. Yes can be done!!
Thanks Kathryn. It was fun to do.
I love spine poems, and this is a great one! I’ve not read any of these books, and I looked up “The Great Realization”. Spine chilling!
Thanks Linda. It was a great pb – I’ll be returning it to the library on Monday.
I love this idea, Bev! And what great choices for your spine poem. I may have to give this a try at some point. I hope you have a great weekend.
Thanks so much. Hope you have fun with it.
