Feature & Follow Friday (#9)

Hey guys, I am getting a late start to FFF today, I didn't think about it last night until it was already too late! So without further ado, here is my Feature & Follow Friday!

Today is Friday which means Feature & Follow Friday! FFF is hosted by Parajunkee of Parajunkee's View and Alison of Alison Can Read.  It is an opportunity to gain followers and find new blogs in the book blogging community! You can find more information about it here. This week's featured blogs are The Book Stop & Phantasmic Reads.

If you use bloglovin please follow me with that since GFC will not be available soon! Otherwise, I have made subscribing by email and RSS available also :) Just pick your favorite way of following!

This weeks question is: AN ACTIVITY! Spine Poetry. Create a line of poetry with your book spines (take a picture). Not feeling creative? Tell us about your favorite poem.

So, I am really not very good with poetry or creativity unfortunately, so in my head this makes perfect sense, but if not to you...just go with it for me :)

Also, my book collection is not nearly as big as some of you other awesome bloggers and most of my recent books have been ebooks so I have not been adding to my collection. So I am adding in a few little words to make my poetry make a little more sense.

The Night Circus

A beautiful darkness,
When it happens, just listen.
In the shadowland, a new moon is chosen.
Hush, hush... 
Sweet dreams.

Because I feel this makes no sense to anyone other than me... here was my thought process. It is titled by the book The Night Circus. In this poem the night circus, is your dreams. So line by line:

The Night Circus - dreaming

A beautiful darkness - nighttime, right before you finally (at least in my case) fall asleep
When it happens, just listen. - dont fight it, observe, accept your dreams, welcome them 
In the shadowland, a new moon is chosen. - something new in your dreams, a new beginning, exciting, refreshing
Hush, hush... - don't over think it, quiet your thoughts 
Sweet dreams. - sweet dreams! this is technically Swede Dreams but sweet went better.

So, don't judge me if you think this is terrible! I read, not write. All writers are readers, but unfortunately not all readers make good writers. I promise not to judge your poem if you are shy about it as well :)
