FF (89)

This week's question feature is
Nina @ J’adore Happy Endings

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.


My Answer: I don't usually come across many big words, not that I'd notice anyway. BUt I recently read 'Dash & Lily's Book of Dares' and Dash used a lot of 'intelligent words'. This extract is from page 2 - 


"but mostly I was spending time in the Strand, that bastion of titillating erudition, not so much a book- store as the collision of a hundred different bookstores, with lit- erary wreckage strewn over eighteen miles of shelves"

This wasn't majorly big words or anything, but made me go 'woah - concentrate' 


Happy Hopping & Blogging. :D 


P.S - Sorry there hasn't been as many posts this week, it's been a crazy, hectic week and I haven't even managed to read 1 book!!! I can normally do 3 in a week so this is really behind. Lunchbreaks have been used to run errands, I've been out a couple of evenings, went to an Agent's Party in London last night (which was awesome, got some great tips on submitting manuscripts etc) and filling out job application. So it's been crazy. I'm going to try and catch up a bit this weekend, but I'm going to a Gamers Convention in London this Sunday so I might not get much done again.
Thanks for your patience and continual support of my blog. :)
