Books: Obsidian, Jennifer L. Armentrout - finished it.

Challenge: Sonnets and Serenades hosted by Amanda @ Letters Inside Out

I challenge you to write an original love poem or song to or from a book character! (It can be written to a character, from a character to another character, from the character to you, from the character to me…) It can be “hot”, “sweet”, funny, or whatever! (I want to swoon…or laugh, as the case may be.)

To Be Updated... maybe. I'm lacking inspiration and I'm no good at poetry, so we'll see.

OMG, this took forever... I spent over an hour agonizing over the last stanza and the final couplet. (I now hate rhyming. This is so much harder when you're not a native speaker.) And I didn't even think about meter. (That might become a nightmare, LOL.)

Anyway, I've been reading Obsidian, so I came up with this poem, from Katy to Daemon:

How do I hate thee? Let me count the ways:
I hate thee and the way you speak,
And the way you leave me in a daze,
How around you my knees feel weak.
  You just drive me insane
  With how you stop and stare,
  Around you I feel a plain Jane
  And that I cannot bear
To be honest, hate is a word too strong
You set my heart and soul afire
I see how much this could go wrong
But there is nothing I most desire
  If I am to go down in flame
  I'd rather be in your arms, if that's the same

Challenge: Beach Soiree hosted by Kriss @ The Cabin Goddess Reviews

  • Your perfect beach (from a book, or a place or a cover)
  • Your perfect date (provide a link to cover or book)
  • In your preferred swimwear (description, or link to image or cover)
  • With your first choice of books to read (title with link to book or to cover)

Well, I'd like to go back to a beach of my childhood, S. Torpes in Sines, Portugal, and see how much it's changed. I'd ask on a date the cute model that represents Daemon on the covers of the Lux series by Jennifer L. Armentrout. (For him, I can almost forgive them for changing the cover and using a different image in which we can no longer see Katy's model's face.) I'd use a bikini with shorts (I'm a big fan of those), and I'd probably read something fun and light and contemporary like The Summer I Turned Pretty or Perfect Chemistry.
