  • This is a Blog Hop!!!  
  •  This week's Question:  What is the BIGGEST word you've seen used in a book lately - that made you stop and look it up?
  • My answer:    I'm thinking....yes, .   Currently I am Reading an ARC copy of the Rebel Princess by Anne M Strick....pg 104 of the ARC "...Mo-was at once obsequious and mean."
  • Obsequious   : marked by or exhibiting a fawning attentiveness.   I'll admit, I learn a lot from good authors!   :D

Hi there!

omg. You know what's such a coincidence. WE HAVE THE SAME WORD. -highfive- I got 'obsequious' from Cassandra Clare's Mortal Instruments series.

I'm a new follower via GFC and would love it if you followed back at http://bookaholicness.com!

Thanks, and have a nice day!

Seems like that word stumps a lot of people! It's the third time I've come across it today! The word I had to look up was from David Mitchell's novel Cloud Atlas. Check it out here

Thanks for stopping by my FF post earlier.
I think that reading is the best way of expanding our vocabulary! Obsequious is a great word :)
Have a fantastic Friday.

Kristina said...

That is not a word that rolls off the tongue :) Thanks for sharing and stopping by, old follower. Happy Friday!

Obsequious is a great word. I always think of Uriah Heep when I hear or read it.
