Top Ten Books with adjectives in the title

TTT for March 22, 2022

๐Ÿ“š ย ๐Ÿ“šย ๐Ÿ“š

For this list, I started from my latest reads. I also only considered the presence of an adjective in the title -not in the subtitle- and only selected books I liked.

top ten adjective 1

My reviews:
๐Ÿ“š The Clairvoyant Countess
๐Ÿ“š The Final Days of Abbot Montrose
VERDICT:ย ย A clever plot symbolizing different layers of the Norwegian society of early 20thย century. A nice glimpse into the impressive work of Sven Elvestad, aka Stein Riverton.
๐Ÿ“š Red is my Heart
VERDICT:ย If you want to begin 2022 with love and beauty, heart and art, run right away under the glow of Red is My Heart.
๐Ÿ“š Une Rose seule (A Single Rose)
๐Ÿ“š L’Ombre chinoise [the Chinese shadow] – published as The Shadow Puppet

top ten adjective 2

My reviews:
๐Ÿ“š The Little Wooden Robot and the Log Princess
๐Ÿ“š The Satanic Verses
๐Ÿ“š Double Indemnity
VERDICT:ย You like feisty heroines and a lot of action and suspense? Buy the book and meet Mel today!
๐Ÿ“š The Thirteenth Tale
๐Ÿ“š The Hands on French Cookbook
VERDICT:ย The most yummy book I have read this year. Cook and learn French at the same time!

  1. Hi Emma! Can’t believe I still haven’t read The Thirteenth Tale. I am on holidays (kind of, busy with renovations at our house!) and will try to make a dent in some long overdue books.

    I am going to take a look at Red is my Heart. I’ve read and loved The President’s Hat by Antoine Laurain and I see you rate it 5 stars!

  2. I started the audio version of The Thirteenth Tale and was enjoying it but the loan period came to an end before I’d got half way through so had to be returned. It hasn’t been available since


  3. WordsandPeace, I love your unique way of analyzing book titles! Why do authors include adjectives in their title? Would I have been drawn to the following works without their adjectives?: “A Peace” (Knowles); “A World” by Huxley; “Education” by Flaubert? Bravo for your post!! Robyn
