Top Ten Tuesday: One-Word Reviews for the Last 10 Books I Read But Didn’t Review on My Blog

 

Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in January 2018. It was born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together.  Top Ten Tuesday has been one of my favorite memes ever since I started blogging, so huge thanks to Jana for taking over the hosting duties!

This week’s TTT topic is One-Word Reviews for the Last Ten Books I Read.  I’ve already reviewed most of the last ten books I read on the blog, so I’ve decided to focus on the last ten books I read but didn’t already review on the blog. I also think this is a great topic since it challenges me to think of better words than amazing, wonderful, great, loved, etc.

      I agree. I should do posts like this more often. I have so many books that I read and don’t write full reviews for. This is a great way to quickly and pretty effectively share my thoughts.

      Honestly that one sat on my shelf for 4 years before I worked myself up to reading it. I’d pull it out, see that pained face, and shove it back on the shelf, haha.

    I didn’t even attempt this topic because I knew I wouldn’t be able to come up with one word worthy enough of each book, and I think you did amazing! Delectable is a perfect word for The Duke and I! And I definitely agree with jaw-dropping for Verity!

      Thanks! Yeah, as I was working on the post, I kept thinking I should do something this every once in a while since I read so many books that I don’t write reviews for. It’s a fun and pretty effective way to quickly share my overall thought on a book.

      Yep, that’s what I was going for there. I struggled with that book because it seemed like every character had drama so there were too many things competing for my attention.

    I’ve not read any of these, I’ve seen both seasons of Bridgerton on Netflix and “delectable” is definitely a good description, but I’m not really a romance reader (I like different things in books to TV and film) so I probably won’t read the books.

    That’s too bad about Survive the Night. I’ve been kinda meaning to try Riley Sager and probably will at some point- it’s so hard getting to all the books haha! The Caudia Gray one I’m kind of interested in as well…
