As part of our participation in Christmas with Jane hosted by the Book Review Club DJABC is having a mini-challenge. Sarah and I have each picked three of our favorite books from this year and have written a Haiku about it. You’re challenge, should you choose to accept, is to match the Haiku with the title of the book.
The book titles:
- January: Mr. Darcy, Vampyre by Amanda Grange
- March: A Vindication of the Rights of Women by Mary Wollstonecraft
- May: Jane Slayre by Sherri Browning Erwin
- August: Frankenstein by Mary Shelley
- September: Mansfield Park and Mummies by Vera Nazarian
- November: The Mistress’s Black Veil by M. K. Baxley
Struggling against passion Despite years shut up
Committed for life Behind yards of linen bandages.
C) Sinful survival D) Mother-writer taught
Surrendered innocence Daughter, men&women aren’t born
Unified redemption monsters, but made.
E) Compounding sorrows F) Sharpen silver knives
Emerging humanity Crazy lives in the attic
Darkness consumed Playing with fire.
Give your answers in the comments in number-letter format (ex: 7G). We’ll be posting the answers on Monday, December 10th. Good luck!
