  4. My personal favorite was Jinx, by Sage Blackwood; very different from David Sedaris, but I like him a lot too!

    The best (?) literary haiku I ever wrote was a celebration of a common trope in British girls' boarding school stories (although you have to say "school" like an American, with one syllable..

    Hanging from the cliff,
    I wonder when a school girl
    Will come rescue me.

  15. Okay, here goes it:

    Dear Mary Poppins
    Not so nice as Dame Julie
    We prefer the film

    EH? Does that work? Maybe not the most book-affirming haiku, but it was the best I could come up with the moment

    And the pages of this book
    Are like paper towns

    (I'm not sure if the metre is totally correct since english isn't my first language)
