Top Ten Tuesday: One-word reviews

This week’s topic for Top Ten Tuesday (hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl) is “One-Word Reviews for the Last Ten Books I Read”.

The ten books I’m listing below are not technically the last ten I read, but they are ten that I haven’t yet reviewed on my blog. Full reviews for most of these should appear over the next few weeks, but for now I have chosen one word to represent each book:

1. Infuriating
The Trial of Lotta Rae by Siobhan MacGowan

2. Sadness
The Night Ship by Jess Kidd

3. Adventure
Winchelsea by Alex Preston

4. Dickensian
The Second Sight of Zachary Cloudesley by Sean Lusk

5. Immersive
The Fugitive Colours by Nancy Bilyeau

6. Surprises
The Vanished Days by Susanna Kearsley

7. Freedom
Privilege by Guinevere Glasfurd

8. Secrets
In Place of Fear by Catriona McPherson

9. Complex
All the Seas of the World by Guy Gavriel Kay

10. Insightful
The Rebecca Notebook: and Other Memories by Daphne du Maurier


Are you interested in reading any of these? Which would you like to know more about?

    I love these one word reviews I really enjoyed Winchelsea and Adventure definitely sums it up. The Sean Lusk is on my TBR in the next few weeks so I’m hoping I enjoy it.

      The Vanished Days isn’t one of my favourites by Susanna Kearsley, but I did enjoy it! The Rebecca Notebook is great, although only a short section of it is actually about Rebecca – the rest is a collection of other essays.

        Oh, good! I’ve been reading her for years. I like her contemporary stand-alones better than either of her mystery series, though. I haven’t read the one you did yet, because it hasn’t arrived. I think my favorite of her is Quiet Neighbors.
