Feature and Follow Friday #3


Feature and Follow Friday is a weekly meme hosted by Parajunkee and Alison Can Read.  

Question of the week:  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 and the book too.

Hm... this is a tough one.  After doing so much SAT prep, words just don't seem big to me anymore LOL.  It would probably be in The Fault In Our Stars by John Green because Hazel and Augustus have the most intellectual conversations about the most abstract and philosophical things. :)

  2. Same! I don't really look up words because the books I read don't use super huge words beyond my own vocabulary. Hope you have a great weekend :)

    Here's my FF!

  3. Unfortunately, I was a bit of a lazy student when it came to that. Sometimes I wish I could do it all over again,

    I would really love to read The Fault in Our Stars. I read the first chapter and I adored the characters already.

  4. The only thing I remember from The Fault in Our Stars is all the weeping (mine). I usually don't have to look up words either but sometimes I get stumped.
    My FF word came from David Mitchell's Cloud Atlas. Check out my FF here to see which word I had to look up.

  19. Hopping through. I agree - Hazel and Augustus like using big words, especially Augustus, and having intellectual conversations.
