Top Ten Tuesday: ONE Word Reviews!

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly feature hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl. Each week there is a new topic for bloggers to choose and list their top ten. This week is Top Ten One-Word Reviews for the Last Ten Books I Read (submitted by Susan @ Bloggin’ ’bout Books) – Yay, Susan!!!

This is such an awesome topic! Sometimes I wish I could do all my reviews this way. Will I be making up my own words? Probably. haha!! I love how I don’t have to think too hard for this one since it’s my last ten reads. They should still be fresh!


This was sooo fun and really easy to do!!! I can’t wait to see everyone else’s list! Link your post below and I’ll check it out! 🙂

Let’s chat below.

  1. Love this! We Free the Stars is awesome, The Bridge Kingdom really is fantastic, and OH THE ANGST in Gods of Jade and Shadow 🥹 Sad to see that Below Zero was lacking though! I’m waiting for the eBooks for these novellas cos I don’t know how I’d feel about them as audiobooks (I’m too picky with audios lol). Great one-word reviews, Leslie!

    • I know, I’m actually struggling a little bit with not so great reads lately! I’m hoping that will turn around but I’ve got a lot of arcs ahead of me and you never know how those will go.

  2. I’m thinking these kinds of reviews would be a good idea when I have tons of reviews stacking up and I just need to catch up without having to think too hard about it, you know? It’s hard for me, though, since I’m such a wordy reviewer!

    “Twisty” is one of my favorite adjectives since I always find those kinds of plots appealing. I also love “witty,” though, because those books are so fun. It’s a perfect word for the Veronica Speedwell series, too. They really are very witty. That’s why I love the series so much.

    Happy TTT!

    • Yes, honestly I might do this. I’ve got a stack of books that I might not review because I just don’t have the time. This is just a good post to do! Great idea!!
      I know, I really enjoyed her series so far. It was a lot of fun and I cannot wait to continue the series!!


      • I went to one of her tour events so I was expecting the illustrations. I quite like them actually, and seems like quite a natural flow on from Addie LaRue which also had quite a few illustrations. It’s the dense blocks of prose which are a bit more tricky for me, I was kind of expecting that as obviously with the main character being non-verbal, it’s not a dialogue driven piece, but I’m a very dialogue driven reader, so a bit of mismatch there. Still I knew going in that it probably wasn’t going to end up being a favourite Schwab, so that’s definitely putting less pressure on it for me!


    • I know, I picked it as soon as I could bc I wasn’t seeing the best reviews. I pre-ordered it and didn’t want it sitting on my shelf forever. I did a buddy read and she did like it, so you never know!!

    • It was such a good book!! I can’t believe it’s been sitting on my shelf for so long! lol Gallant is actually a MG, I think. It’s short but the actual content makes it seem much longer! lol.

  3. The Ali Hazelwood title got me wondering if that was published before or after her major push with Love Hypothesis. If it was before, maybe she’s improved since then? I haven’t read any of her books, just see them everywhere.

  4. I loved this topic, too! I was bummed when I didn’t get approved for Bravely, but after seeing all the mixed reviews, I’m not so bummed. 😉 I hate that for Stiefvater though, because she is one of my top 3 authors.
