Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme created by The Broke and the Bookish and now hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl. Top Ten Tuesday Turns 10! How’s that for alliteration? To celebrate their tenth birthday, one of the options for this week’s topic was to choose a topic we had done in the past and update it or add on. One of the past theme’s that I had the most fun writing was my Frequently Used Words in YA Fantasy Titles post. I’ve always wanted to revisit that topic again, and now I have the perfect opportunity!
