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.

Can you think of any books with adjectives in the title? Comment below!
Great selection! I had to refresh my memory on what adjectives were again too; school was a loooooong time ago haha.
LOL, I think a lot of us were in that situation!
Great job, and these covers are lovely!
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!
Thank you, Katherine!
This was a fun one! 😊
Yes, it sure was fun this week!
This is such a fun Top Ten Tuesday Wendy! These covers are gorgeous. Thanks for sharing.
Thank you, Jodie!
These look nice! I love the look of the thrillers but also Last Daughter and Book Shop.
Thank you, Greg. The Last Daughter was excellent.
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
I just went to your site, and they all looked good to me… (but what do I know!). LOL.
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!
Thank you, Tanya! And here I was thinking I was the only one unsure of today’s topic!
Almost all of these were new to me, but I’m loving the cover of Winter Fires! Nice list. <3
Thank you, Dedra!
No need to call you out, you did great! Nice list!
Thank you, Kami. My high school English teacher would be proud of me.
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.
I absolutely love the cover on Beneath a Starless Sky! And I think you well on identifying your adjectives. 🙂
Thank you, Jolene!
For word lovers (count me in), that topic is great. I love your choices.
Thank you, Linda!
Fantastic list. You made me giggle and I ,must say Wendy all the covers are so pretty.
Thank you, Kimberly.
Great list Wendy. I love all these covers. I have a couple of these on my TBR.
Thank you, Carla!
I have a Starless Sea on my list!
That sounds like a great book. I’m going to check it out.
There are lots of good adjectives on this list! Ava’s Travelling Book Shop looks especially fun. 😀
Thank you, Lark. Aria’s Traveling Book Shop was a lot of fun.
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 🤣
Thanks, Jenny! You made me laugh!
Your list is great! It has a lot of great sounding titles! 😀
Thank you, Stephanie!
Great list, Wendy! Aria’s Travelling Book Shop sounds like it would be good!
Thank you, Cindy. Aria’s Traveling Bookshop was very good!
Nope, all of these are perfect adjectives! Great list! I haven’t read any, but few does grab my attention.
Happy TTT and here’s our: Ten Books to better describe your Wardrobe
Thank you, Mareli! It’s just been so very long since I had to diagram a sentence!
Aria’s Travelling Book Shop sounds good.

It was such a good book, Lydia
Nice books! Her Last Affair is already on my Wish List and I almost included it today on my TTT. The White Girl looks like a different type of read that I would enjoy.
They are both good books!
Great list Wendy🙂 Aria’s Travelling Bookshop looks particularly appealing
Thank you, Mallika! Aria’s Travelling Bookshop was very good!
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 🙂
Thank you, Susan!
I haven’t read any of these, but some of them are on my TBR. Great list! 🙂 Thanks for stopping by my blog.
Thank you, Jenni! Thanks for stopping by.
I love this list and it’s reminded that I still have The Last Daughter of York on my TBR.
Thank you, Janette!
What a fun list! Thanks for sharing!
Thank you, Amanda!
Lady Armstrong’s Scandalous Awakening
That’s a good one! Thanks, Rosie
