Penultimate University Friday

It's my penultimate Friday at University and I'm sad! In roughly a week's time, I won't be a Fresher anymore and sadness will ensue. Although, summer is coming so that's a good thing!

Book Beginnings is hosted by Rose City Reader, Friday 56 by Freda's Voice. This week I'm using The Sun Also Rises by Ernest Hemingway because I decided I needed to read some more Hemingway.

'Robert Cohn was once middleweight boxing champion of Princeton. Do not think that I am very much impressed by that as a boxing title, but it meant a lot to Cohn.'
I have discovered a like for intrusive authors, especially if they're using it in an ironic way.It just adds a whole amount of fun to sometimes quite serious plots. So, I hope this develops into something fun!

'"What? Get up? I never get up."He climbed into bed and pulled the sheet up to his chin."Try and argue me into getting up."'
Oh god, this sounds like my kind of book. Getting up is so difficult in the morning. I would never challenge anyone to arguing me out of bed though, because I can be quite argumentative when I believe in a cause as much as I believe in sleeping!
Alison Can Read Feature & Follow
Follow Friday is hosted by Alison Can Read and Parajunkee and this week's question looks amazing!

Q: Activity: Spine Poetry. Create a line of poetry with your book spines (take a picture). Not feeling creative? Tell us about your favorite poem.

Although I never feel very creative, I decided to give this a try. I am just going to pretend it is modern poetry with a very deep hidden meaning that will reveal itself at some point. I have taken the liberty to add some basic words such as 'in' and 'a', (I put the titles in bold) since they're hardly found in (my) book spines!

'In The Night Sky
A Band of Angels,
Bones Buried in the Dirt,
A Shame,
I, Claudius'

So, what's your poem? Managed to put something together that actually makes sense? Leave a link to your post in the comment or tell me there :)


  1. I read The Sun Also Rises a long time ago...hope you enjoy it!

    Here's my Friday post:

  2. I see what you mean. A very interesting selection of books, though! Old follower. My FF

  3. It has been so many years since I read The Sun Also more recent Hemingway read was A Moveable Feast.

    Thanks for sharing...and reminding me that I'd love to reread this one.

  5. Sounds wonderful... it's one I have not read.

    Happy weekend!

  6. Great poem! I'm loving this week's FF! This is the only time that I've made an effort to go and visit ALL of the participants' blogs because I'm so loving reading everyone's poems!!

    You can find my poem here.

  7. You actually did the book spine poetry! I tried it and it sounded so bad I decided not to post it! :)

  8. I've only read A Moveable Feast by Hemingway and I struggled to like him. In fact, by the end I didn't like him at all and feel no need to read anything by him!
    But obviously there is a lot of love for him out there, so I'll be curious to read your review to find out what I'm missing :-)

  9. Not a big Hemingway fan but the way you have presented it makes him seem much more enjoyable!

    Come on by Harlie's Books and check out our Friday 56 and Book Beginning!

  10. That was a great book spine poem :) I like the "modern" part, I think mine falls into that category now too! New GFC and bloglovin follower!
