Top Ten Tuesday: In a Word


Back in February, I twisted a Top Ten Tuesday topic to create a list of one-word reviews. Several of you suggested I submit the idea to Jana, which explains today's prompt: One-Word Reviews For The Last Ten Books I Read. I'm a very wordy reviewer, so this will be a good exercise in brevity! I also tend to use the same book-describing adjectives over and over, so I'm going to do what I did with my last list and outlaw the words I tend to use most in my reviews: engrossing, fascinating, compelling, heart-warming, enjoyable, tense, fun, depressing, entertaining, and taut (my husband always laughs at me when I use the phrase "taut psychological thriller"). I might need to break out my thesaurus. We'll see.

I'd love to read your one-word reviews, so don't forget to make your own TTT list today. You can find all the info on this fun meme over at That Artsy Reader Girl.

One-Word Reviews For The Last Ten Books I Read


10. The Children on the Hill by Jennifer McMahon:

Twisty


9. The Curse of the Pharaohs by Elizabeth Peters:

Delightful


8. Murder at Beechwood by Alyssa Maxwell:

Diverting


7. The Mothers by Genevieve Gannon:

Slllooowwww


6. The Dead Cat Bounce by Sarah Graves:

Appealing


5. Two Girls Down by Louise Luna:

Nauseating


4. The Dark Intercept by Julia Keller:

Underwhelming


3. The Woman in the Library by Sulari Gentill (available June 7, 2022):

Clever


2. Strong Like the Sea by Wendy S. Swore:

Empowering


1. These Fleeting Shadows by Kate Alice Marshall (available August 9, 2022):

Disappointing

How did I do? Not too bad, eh? Have you read any of these books? What did you think of them? Which words would you use to describe your last ten reads? I would truly love to know. Leave me a comment on this post and I will gladly return the favor on your blog.

Happy TTT!
