One-Word Reviews for the Last Ten Books I Read

Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish and is now hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl. It was born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together. Each week a new theme is suggested for bloggers to participate in. Create your own Top Ten list that fits that topic – putting your unique spin on it if you want. Everyone is welcome to join but please link back to The Artsy Reader Girl in your own Top Ten Tuesday post.

Jana is also challenging us to leave the review at one word and not explain anything about that word. Oh boy, this is going to be tricky

This week’s topic is One-Word Reviews for the Last Ten Books I Read

The Lost Continent – self-deprecating
The Body – fascinating
Greek Mythology – pretty
The Prison Doctor – preachy
A Court Of Thorns and Roses – unexpected

The Lost Apothecary – re/discovery
The Comfort Book – comforting
Beyond The Gender Binary – thought-provoking
Pilgrimage – long-winded
The Topping Book – informative

And that was even harder than I thought it was going to be – I really wanted to justify the words I chose, and explain the reasoning, what I meant for some of them.

    1. Thank you – looking back, it was as fun as it was tricky. Not sure I’d want to repeat the experience though LOL
