Top 10 Tuesday: All About the Words


This week's theme could be interesting though I'm struggling with it - favorite or funny words found in books or words you wish were used in books. Hmmmm - I think I'm going to go with descriptive words I wish I used in writing reviews. Jana @ That Artsy Reader Girl is hosting another week of Top Ten Tuesday. I enjoy participating each week for a couple reasons. I'm a compulsive list maker and love a good list. And, I love a connection with other readers as I wander their book blogs.


So here are my rarely used descriptive words that I wish I used more often. Here goes.


Instead of COMPELLING, use ENTHRALLING or MESMERIZING.


Instead of PRETTY or ATTRACTIVE, use RESPLENDENT or WINSOME.


Instead of GREAT (much overused!), use REMARKABLE or ASTOUNDING, or TERRIFIC.


Instead of PALS or FRIENDS, talk about CAMARADERIE.


Instead of TRICKED or FOOLED, use BAMBOOZLED.


And then, find a way to work these fun words into a review:


GUMPTION


SKEDADDLE


FLUMMUXED


SHENANIGANS


RIGAMAROLE


What fun words did you come up with this week?


I'm actually on vacation in Puerto Vallarta this week so I may not get around to comment as much as usual. Sorry about that and I'll do better next week.






Welcome to Bookshelf Journeys.

It's my goal to provide real reviews of the books I read without totally rehashing every plot. I'll never spoil a story by giving away a plot twist! Hopefully you'll find one or two of interest and will discover a new book or author to add to YOUR TBR list.  Take a moment to explore, read a couple reviews, and let me know what you think.

                            TIPS

For your convenience, I use #hashtags in the reviews and when you click on one, you'll find more books with that theme. Hopefully you'll find it a helpful way to navigate the site and find books you'll enjoy. I've also recently added tags that will show up at the end of each review that serve the same purpose.

The review ratings are based on a 5 star  (1/2 stars sometimes) system with a 3 being an average read for me. I hope you find that helpful. Knowing, of course, that all opinions are just that - my opinion!  Let me know if you agree or disagree - I'd love to hear from you.
