TTT: Books with adjectives in their titles

Top Ten Tuesday: Books with adjectives in their titles.

Adjectives are words that are used to describe or modify nouns or pronouns. For example, red, quick, happy, and obnoxious are adjectives because they can describe things—a red hat, the quick rabbit, a happy duck, an obnoxious person. This is the simple definition. But adjectives take many forms. Some common adjectives are formed when we add a suffix to a noun or verb. For example, when we add the suffix -ful to the noun beauty, makes the adjective beautiful, and adding the suffix -able to the verb read makes the adjective readable. I guess I shouldn't have any trouble finding examples in my recent reading selections.
