Top Ten Tuesday: Books with an adjective in the title!

Hey y’all! I know, I know… I’m pretty late to the game with this being my first book meme / top ten Tuesday post even after running the blog for almost three years now! I’ve seen Dini @ dinipandareads do these often and always enjoyed reading them, so I thought I’d finally give it a try!

This bookish question idea was originally created and hosted by The Broke and the Bookish, from way back in June 2010! Since January 2018, Top Ten Tuesday has been hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl. Thanks for taking it over! Check out her site for details on how to join and what the upcoming prompts are. ๐Ÿ˜Š

This week’s is books with adjectives in the title. This was interesting because as I read through my books, I kept doubting myself and wondering if something was actually functioning as an adjective or not. I’m pretty confident in these now, but hey, whatever if not, they’re all still great books! I chose books from my highest rated reads for this list.

My top 10 books with an adjective in the title!

Why I love each one…

the funniest, sweetest superhero to ever remain canon

the “After” in a happily ever after medical miracle

the witchy dark book I re-read every year

the book that saves me in my darkest days

the book that surprised and delighted me with a devilish cackle

the book that let me see things that are usually hidden

the book that made me wonder and marvel

the book that brought my favorite game to a new medium

the book that made me baffled and rageful, but in an informative way xD

the book that taught me so much about the lore of a world I adore

That’s all for my first top ten Tuesday, y’all! See ya next week? ^.^


Reader, traveler, photographer, and always looking to learn!

    1. Same. When there’s that much to be said about it, some of it definitely sticks! The medicine not being tested for women because of hormones and the seatbelts not including female test dummies really stuck out to me ๐Ÿ˜ She did a great job of never assigning blame and just working on improving the situation.


  1. Yay! Welcome to TTT! I love Dini too! I loved Furiously Happy and I’m so glad to see The Strange and Beautiful Sorrows of Ava Lavendar! I loved that book and it doesn’t get enough hype. ๐Ÿ™‚

    1. Thank you and hello! Agreed on Ava Lavender. It was such a special read to me, and I’ve always been surprised how infrequently it comes up. Seems like one that would be really popular!

  2. Welcome to TTT! It’s such a fun meme. I’m glad you’re joining in and hope we see you around here again ๐Ÿ™‚

    I love that you listed what you love about each of these books. I haven’t read any of them. I find North Korea fascinating, so NOTHING TO ENVY looks like one I need to read. Thanks for the heads-up. I hadn’t heard of it before.

    Happy TTT!

    1. Thanks Susan โ˜บ๏ธ Nothing to Envy was especially interesting to read because it read almost like fiction as it follows several people in their lives, with the information naturally a part of it. Of course, it’s real, which makes it a bit eerie at times. Definitely recommended for North Korea reading!


  3. Welcome to the Top Ten Meme. It is a good one to complete each week. I love your post. I have only read one of these, but I like that you said something about each book.

  4. Yay for joining TTTโ€”they’re always so much fun! ๐Ÿ˜ I also had doubts about whether I was picking the right titles for this week’s list but it was still fun to look through my library for titles. I really enjoyed The Curious Heart of Ailsa Rae (made me quite emotional!) and I have Furiously Happy on my TBR and can’t wait to read it!
