Follow Friday

Follow Friday is hosted by Alison and Parajunkee.


Q: What is the BIGGEST word you've seen used in a book lately - that made you stop and look it up? Might as well leave the definition & book too.

I guess because I ready mostly YA, I haven't had to look a word up since 2010. I don't remember the book or even the word. But for a while I kept a chart of words and definitions, so I know I have had to look up a word.


If you stop by, please leave a link so I can visit you.

  3. Hopping by. I agree! Big words aren't that prevalent in YA books. :)

  4. I read a lot of YA too and enjoy the more simplistic and straightforward writing. The word I had to look up was from David Mitchell's novel Cloud Atlas. Check it out here

  12. That's awesome that you used to keep a list of unfamiliar words. I should do that, but I doubt I will. I think I am too lazy.
