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.
Books with Single Word Titles!
(Topic by Kitty from Kitty Marie’s Reading Corner)
When I saw this topic I was sure that I hadn’t reviewed as many as 10 books with single word titles. However, it turns out, that I’ve actually read and reviewed quite a few of these, and that doesn’t include any books that have “The” or “A” before the single word. Unfortunately, only nine of them got a full five stars from me.
