Challenge: TBR List hosted by Ellie @ Musings of a Bookship Girl
1.  Which 5 books are at the top of your TBR pile at this moment?
2.  If I gave you a wad of cash and sent you into a bookshop right now, which 5 books would you buy to add to the stack?
Oh, this one is too easy. There are so many books from my TBR pile I'd like to read, and a lot more I'd like to add to the same pile... :D

1) Tiger's Curse by Colleen Houck; Crown of Midnight by Sarah J. Maas (which I don't have on my pile yet, but I've ordered it, and it will be on my anxious hands soon); Rose Under Fire by Elizabeth Wein (same); Death Comes to Pemberley by P.D. James; Inferno by Dan Brown.

2) Runelight, Joanne Harris (I've waited too long for this sequel); Sookie Stackhouse's last book by Charlaine Harris (it hasn't come out yet, the portuguese edition I mean); the latest book in Mercy Thompson's series by Patricia Briggs (same); the last book in Kushiel's trilogy by Jacqueline Carey; Allegiant by Veronica Roth.

Challenge: Book Spine Poetry hosted by Jess @ Such a Novel Idea
1. Find some books, and create a poem out of their spine.
2. Take a picture of the spine poem.
3. Upload it on the link.
Okay, I might have squealed and did a little dance when I saw this challenge, because I love it! I'm a big fan of Book Spine Poetry challenges, and of trying to use books' titles to suggest a little story. Since there were no specific rules, and it wasn't clear whether we could use extra words, I tried to create a poem without them.  Here is my try:

Hope you like it!

    1. Thank you Jess, and thanks for stopping by! ^_^

  2. Hallo, Hallo! I am finally able to visit all the wicked sweet Bout'er blogs that I discovered whilst I signed up!! I participated in the Book Spine Poetry, too! I couldn't get my picture to upload, so I took a bit of liberty and ran with an idea to turn my BOUT Titles into a bit of a murderous mystery! :) It was loads of fun!!! Today, I'm wrapped up in sorting out my "road trip!" I really dig your graphic touch to this, and its 'hauntingly tragic yet hopeful'!! :) Beautiful!!

    1. Hi! Thanks for stopping by! Sadly, I haven't had much time to socialize and visit a few Bouters' blogs, but I'm hoping to do so in the weekend.

      Thank you! I love doing Book Spine Poetry, and to try to tell a little story with it. I took a look at your BSP and I really liked it too, it tells a mystery story, and it made me think of a cozy mystery. ;)
