Let's Make Limericks! (1)

I felt like doing something different this week. I've always enjoyed the challenge of writing limericks, and I thought it might be fun to try writing them about the books I've been reading (or have read, or am going to read). So I thought, why not make a meme out of it?

Here are the rules:
  1. Every weekend (yes, this is flexible... choose Saturday or Sunday!), pick a book. It can be one that you're currently reading, one that you've finished, or one that's in your TBR pile.
  2. Write a limerick about the book (click on the link if you're unclear on the limerick format).
  3. Try not to include spoilers!
Who's up for the challenge? If you decide to do this, please link back to my site and leave a comment on this post. I can't wait to see what everybody comes up with!

Here's mine for this week. I'm still reading The Dust of 100 Dogs by A. S. King, and this is what I came up with:
In spite of her parents' strong pleas,
She wanted to take to the seas
To recover her loot
From that first mate galoot
Who had cursed her and given her fleas.

  1. I thought this was a great idea, and meant to take part but the weekend really got away from me.
