Rawk: Rhyme Time - Finished

Rawk-A-Tiers Rhyme Time hosted by Rawk-A-Tiers on Goodreads.

I am doing most of the challenges in Rawk-A-Tiers as RR (3-4 books a week) level but because this started in July and I knew I would read a lot of books that month I decided to go for the higher level of PR (5+ books a week).
To complete this at highest level I needed to read 7 books and they had to be read in order. The first 5 books was no problem but I am glad this lasted 3 months as I have only just achieved my level.

Many people are taught from an early age what a rhyme is. Rhymes surround us every day in poetry, children's books, nursery rhymes, and song lyrics. The rhyme happens when two words have a sound that is very similar. Most of the time rhyming words are arranged in a rhythmic pattern that allows the writer or speaker to fall into a consistent beat that captivates readers and listeners and portrays a message of some sort.

A “rhyme scheme” is the term used for describing the pattern of end rhymes in a poem. Each new sound at the end of a line is given a letter, starting with “A,” then “B,” and so on. If an end sound repeats the end sound of an earlier line, it gets the same letter as the earlier line.


Quatrain (3 examples) ~ requires 4 books

Cinquain (3 examples) ~ requires 5 books

Sestet (six examples) ~ requires 6 books

Rhyme Royal ~ requires 7 books

☯ Your challenge is to build a rhyming chain using books you've read this quarter. The chain does not need to create a story or sentence, only a rhyme of "sound alike words."

☯ To complete the rhyme, you may use the title, the author's name (first or last), character names (main or supporting), or the series title.

☯ You must include the selected rhyme scheme and book completed dates in your post.

☯ The completion dates on your books must appear in the same order as the rhyme scheme you select.
