Hello friends, I am back with another Top Ten Tuesday! This weeks theme is books with adjectives in title. So I’m going to give you a list of 10, some I’ve read and some I haven’t with adjectives. This is a collection of books on my TBR, that I’m interested in, or that I’ve read already.
Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in January of 2018. It was born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together.
Gnarled Hollow by Charlotte Greene
A horror story about an unemployed Professor given the opportunity of a lifetime; to live and study in the former home of her favourite author. And as with all haunted house horror books, we all know that once she moves in and stays things don’t go her way. This just sounds right up my alley and I’m into it.
This Golden Flame by Emily Victoria
Family bonds, ancient magic automaton armies, ruling group of scribes, and a search for a brother. I mean, what could be better than that? Fantasy with ancient magic and automatons already has me hooked. It just sounds so interesting.
Poisoned Primrose by Dahlia Donovan
A cozy british mystery with an Autistic, asexual, almost forty main character? That takes place in a small town and she has a cat?! I mean, come on, what more could I want? I have really been getting into cozy mysteries lately and this is one that I think I will absolutely adore.
Cute Mutants by S.J. Whitby
So this is basically like X-Men with teens and a diverse cast. Do I need to say more? I’ve heard rave reviews about it, which is a bit intimidating, but I do love X-Men and the idea of superhuman powers. Plus it’s supposed to be real funny. So like, that sounds like my jam for sure.
Crooked Shadows by M.A. Grant
All I can say about this one is it’s one of my favourite books. Features a broody bodyguard, a reckless rich guys son, some sexual tension, and vampires. Also, trauma and history and complications. Basically, it’s everything I love in a book and I can’t say enough how much I love it. It’s book two in the series so don’t start here if you’re interested.
A Pale Light in the Black by K.B. Wagers
A space competition, a diverse crew, wanting to get away, a new team in turmoil, and a routine mission going wrong, all leads me to believe that this is a sci-fi book that I will enjoy. It just sounds interesting, fast paced, full of action and intrigue.
Drowned Country by Emily Tesh
The second book in The Greenhollow Duology that is just as dark and haunting as the first book. I adored this little novel. I would have devoured a full length novel in this world and with these characters. Give me those haunting chills please and thank you!
You’re a Mean One, Matthew Prince by Timothy Janovsky
I mean… it’s like the grinch, but gay. Like grouchy, rich, spoiled Matthew getting cut off and meeting a local who is unimpressed by everything he does. Also, he’s stuck in this festive winter wonderland and doesn’t like Christmas? I mean!! It’s the answer to all those Hallmark movies, isn’t it? Like Hallmark but make it gay!
Queerly Beloved by Susie Dumond
Amy is finally moving on from her ex when her one-off gig of being a bridesmaid turns into a business and her people pleasing ways start to get in the way of her relationships. Like, this sounds so sweet and complicated and just lovely. Watching people stand up for themselves and their lives is always great and this sounds like it will be a lovely wild ride.
Bloody Spade by Brittany M. Willows
A girl full of heart
A thief touched by darkness
A boy with a fiery temper
An unwitting servant of evil
Do I need to say more? This sounds like a hit. A paranormal story with magic and thieves is really all I need to know about a book to know that I’ll love it.
