Top Ten Tuesday #10

Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish in June 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.
Books with an Adjective in the Title

This week’s prompt is a little weird, but I’ll go with it. I couldn’t think of anything off the top of my head, so I went to Goodreads and looked at my “5-Stars” and “4-Stars” shelves to help me come up with my top ten. Without any further ado, here are my top ten books with an adjective in the title:

What about you? Which books with adjectives in their titles made your list? Do we have any in common?

I’ve been learning in DBT (Dialectical Behavior Therapy) that life is full of dialectics, or two opposing truths. In this case, the two opposing truths are: 1) I don’t agree with JKR’s stance regarding trans people, and 2) I still love Harry Potter.

    I’m curious about The Night Circus since I read her Starless Sea and didn’t… love it, but it was certainly well written and thought provoking definitely!

    Huge Liane Moriarty fan.

    Thanks for your comment by the way… it’s good to be back this week. 🙂

      I know, right? I started doubting if words were adjectives on the books I wanted to include as well. I had to go back to my ELANG 223 class and try to remember what I learned. Hopefully, my teacher would be proud not disappointed, lol.

    I’ve read a few of these, obviously Harry Potter, though The Deathly Hallows is one of my least favourite of the series (THE ENDLESS CAMPING). I’ve read The Night Circus and Perfect Scoundrels too, I like the idea of The Night Circus but the writing kind of rubbed me the wrong way. Perfect Scoundrels was really fun but not my favourite of the Heist Society books. I really wish she would do another though, that wasn’t a proper ending!

      Yeah, the endless camping wasn’t a lot of people’s favorites. I didn’t mind it, though, for some reason. I loved the Deathly Hallows. I loved how everything tied together from the past seven books, not in a nice bow, but loose ends were tied.

      I agree that Ally Carter needs to write another Heist Society book. She said she would if she thinks up another awesome premise because she wasn’t going to write one just to write one. I understand her reasoning, but I’m sad if she doesn’t ever think up another awesome premise.

      It is a cool cover, isn’t it? It’s one of the new Scholastic paperback box sets. I want to get them just because I love them. There are new British covers that I want too. I have so many editions, lol.

      Thanks, Wendy! 🙂 I actually thought the topic was kind of hard only because I started second guessing if words were actually adjectives. I wondered if they were adverbs instead, lol.
