Note: Top Ten Tuesday Is A Weekly Meme Hosted by The Artsy Reader
I’m hoping to start doing TTT on a regular basis again on my blog. I used to do it every week but around this time last year life was very hectic and I kind of just burnt out. I’m in a much better place now and I’m really enjoying blogging again, and I’d love to get back into this community.
This weeks TTT topic is adjectives in book titles. Now, am I fairly confident I know what an adjective it? Yes. Did I still check to make sure each one of these words is definitely an adjective? Absolutely.
The Wide Sargasso Sea by Jean Rhys – A prequel/response to Charlotte Bronte’s ‘mad woman in the attic’ Bertha Mason.
Anxious People by Fredrik Backman – A comforting, character driven book about a band robbery and the lives of the people who witness it.
The God Of Small Things by Arundhati Roy – One of the most exquisitely written books I have ever read set in 1960’s Kerala, India.
My Brilliant Friend by Elena Ferrante – One of my favourite books, everyone should read this book! If you like books about literature, writing and complex female friendships, this is a must read.
The Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde by Robert Louis Stevenson – This was on my mind because I bought it yesterday second hand. Book haul coming soon!
A Little Princess by Frances Hodgsen Burnett – Sara Crewe is wise beyond her years, but suffers a great tragedy that will test tht resolve.
The Secret Garden by Frances Hodgsen Burnett – After being made an orphan Mary Lennox moves from hot India to a Yorkshire Manor house to live with her Uncle. Alone and friendless, she finds comfort in the gardens that surround it.
The Beautiful And Damned by F. Scott Fitzgerald – This one is on my Spring TBR and I’m looking forward to it. I do love a ‘swinging ’20’s’ novel.
Bleak House by Charles Dickens – Another on my TBR. This is one of my most anticipated Dicken’s book (although the length does intimidate me).
The Woman In White by Wilkie Collins – One of my favourite Victorian novels with a gothic atmosphere and great twists. I definitely need to read more by Collins soon.
One thought on “Books With Adjectives In The Title | Top Ten Tuesday”
The length is as intimidating as the cover for that Dickens! Great list 🙂
