Top Ten Tuesday : One Word Reviews, #WyrdAndWonder


TTTTop Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme where every Tuesday we look at a particular topic for discussion and use various (or more to the point ten) bookish examples to demonstrate that particular topic.  Top Ten Tuesday (created and hosted by  The Broke and Bookish) is now being hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl and future week’s topics can be found here.   This week’s topic:

One-Word Reviews for the Last Ten Books I Read

For the past few weeks my reading has been reduced due to all sorts of events and also I predominantly focused on my finalists for the SPFBO competition (which has been a thrilling race that I will be writing a roundup post for soon).  For the purposes of this week’s theme I’ve used the winner of the SPFBO together with nine other recent review books and in the spirit of Wyrd & Wonder I’ve mostly used fantasy books (although the Paris Apartment is more thriller).

The Hunger of the Gods by John Gwynne – Brilliant


Reign and Ruin by JD Evans (SPFBO Winner) – Romantasy


Insomnia by Sarah Pinborough – Compelling


The City of Dusk by Tara Sim – Mixed


Last Exit by Max Gladstone – Mind-bending


Sundial by Catriona Ward – Unputdownable


Gallant by VE Schwab – Unexpected


The Paris Apartment by Lucy Foley – Twisted


The Hemlock Cure by Joanne Burn – Interesting

The hemlock

The Justice of Kings by Richard Swan – Gripping


It’s a lot more difficult than I thought giving a one word review.  I may have cheated slightly by including some hyphenated words.
