Top Ten Tuesday: One Word Reviews

Time for a little literary meme-ing with Top Ten Tuesday (hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl). This week’s prompt is to write a one-word review for the last ten books you’ve read. I’ve decided to do two lists this week: One for the books I’ve read and another for books I’ve read to/with my daughter.

  5. Doctor Who and the Revenge of the Cybermen by Terrance Dicks — OK
  6. Daughter by Kate McLaughlin — Decent

    “Compelling” was the one word I also chose to describe Doug Gold’s “A Note Through the Wire.” Happy TTT!

    I *love* Shel Silverstein.

  3. I love how you put the kids books on here too! My kiddo is getting too big for those kinds of books sadly, but I did include a MG book I read with him.

  4. I loved reading both of these lists, but the one with your daughter made me smile. I read a bunch of those with mine when she was younger and the words you chose really do fit the books.

  5. I need to read Sea of Tranquility

  6. I love ‘Underrated.’ Great word choices!

  7. I like “underrated.” I use overrated a lot in my reviews, but not its opposite and I’ve definitely read books for which this is the perfect word. I’m going to keep it in mind!

    Happy TTT (on a Wednesday)!

    ‘Compelling’ is my one-word review for your list(s)!! I haven’t read any of the 10 books on your first list (though many on my TBR), and only read ‘Light in the Attic’ in the second one (need to fix this soon!)..
    My top ten is here
