  1. I love your choices! These are all new books to me but I see several that look fantastic. This was a hard topic for me! I kind of had to remind myself what exactly an adjective was and I still felt like I had to double check!

  2. I definitely had to refresh my mind on what an adjective was – I’m still putting my list together (catching up on this week’s to-do’s slowly) and I’m not entirely convinced they’re all ‘right’ but… what can you do? LOL

  3. I think so many of us were doubting our ability to pick out adjectives this week! LOL English/grammar classes were a looong time ago, right? I’m surprised that I don’t recognize any of these that you shared. But there are some gorgeous covers that catch my eye!

  4. I could have sworn I already commented on your post; if I did, just delete this duplicate comment…

    You’re braver than I am when it comes to this week’s topic. These kinds of prompts give me anxiety since I have a degree in English and I’ve actually STUDIED this stuff BUT I’ve forgotten so much over the years and I don’t want to look dumb…I ended up going with a different topic altogether, just in case! Ugh. I need to be more like you and just go for it. Great list! I haven’t read any of these, but I ADORE the TRAVELING BOOKSHOP cover. So cute.

    Happy TTT (on a Wednesday)!


    • That’s so funny, Susan. I thought I was the only one who wasn’t 100% sure what an adjective would be in a title.

    A great looking list 😊 I always struggle when it comes to my daughters English work, I have to refresh the meaning of the terms each time 🤣

  6. Ha ha. You’re braver than I am! These kinds of prompts always have me overthinking things. Do I REALLY know what an adjective is?? I have a degree in English, but it’s been a long time since I’ve actually STUDIED things like parts of speech and I don’t want to get things wrong. I went with a whole different topic today, just to be safe 🙂

    Happy TTT!

    I love this list and it’s reminded that I still have The Last Daughter of York on my TBR.
