Top Ten Tuesday: Quickie Edition | One Word Book Reviews

 
Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl.


This Week's Top Ten Tuesday Topic:
One Word Book Reviews

When I saw this week's topic, my first thought was no way can I do one word reviews.
But on second thought, it seemed like a fun challenge. 



    

Once We Were Starlight - Mia Sheridan
One word review: Heartrending

Shenanigans - Sarina Bowen
One word review: Swoony

Baden - Sawyer Bennett
One word review: Emotional

   

Tin Queen - Devney Perry
One word review: Bittersweet

Challenge - Amy Daws
One word review: Delightful

  

One word review: Exceptional

Slave to Sensation - Nalini Singh
One word review: Gripping

    

Crowbones - Anne Bishop
One word review: Immersive

My Bestie's Ex - Piper Rayne
One word review: Frustrating

One word review: Charming


Have you read any of these books?

  1. Frustrating books are no fun! I’m glad you liked most of them, though. :)

  2. Ooh, My Bestie's Ex doesn't sound like a winner 🙈 But the rest sound great and you've definitely got me curious about a few of them. Baden is already on my TBR and I'm looking forward to reading it (it'll also be my first book by Sawyer Bennett). Great one-word reviews!

    1. Thanks Dini! I love Piper Rayne but My Bestie's Ex was just okay. Baden was my first by Sawyer Bennett and I definitely want to read more!

  5. Oooh, you came up with some good ones! I use "gripping" a lot because it's just so descriptive. I also love "immersive," "bittersweet," and "heartrending." They all say so much in just one word. Well done!

    Happy TTT!

  7. I wasn't sure about the one word reviews at first either but it was a great challenge and I've been ridiculously overwhelmed by revision for assessments so it was a nice quick one!

  8. This was definitely a fun challenge! I haven't read any of these yet, but The Wall of Winnipeg and Me is on my TBR and Exceptional definitely makes me want to read it even more! I also want to read more Sarina Bowen and Swoony is always a good sign :)

    1. Lindsey - The Wall of Winnipeg and Me was my first by Zapata and I can't believe I waited so long! It was so, so good and I can't wait to read more from her.

  11. I've really liked reading everyone's word choices for this weeks topic. It's definitely not easy to sum up a whole book with one word but it's a cool challenge, I feel like we should all be trying to do this with our reviews as sometimes that single word can be a good push without risking spoilers reading a full review. I totally agree with your words for Wall of Winnipeg and Me and Slave to Sensation.

    1. Becky - I agree! I see some reviews that are sooo long and I sometimes think, there's no way I'm reading all that. I might as well read the book. LOL Sometimes less is more! :)

  12. It sounds like you enjoyed most of these! Here is our Top Ten Tuesday. Thank you!

  13. This would be a challenge, but wouldn't it be nice if we could get away with one word for review books? Lol. I've tried to do short and tweet (a play on sweet) doing a review the length of a tweet and that was fun. I should try it again. Yay that you loved The Wall of Winnipeg and Me!!! I'm so thrilled! Also, happy you enjoyed Slave to Sensation! The series only gets better!

    1. Karen - Right? Some reviews are so long and wordy it's like, why? Short and sweet is always preferable to me.
