WONDROUS WORDS WEDNESDAY…
… is a weekly meme where we share new (to us) words that we have encountered in our reading.
It is hosted by Kathy, over at BermudaOnion’s Weblog. You can either stop by and leave a link to your own ‘mystery’ words of the week, or just browse the eclectic mix of words that others have discovered, there is always a great selection.
Don’t forget that Kathy and the rest of us, all love to read your comments as well!!
My words this week are taken from my recently finished book, a contemporary romantic suspense:
His Chosen Bride by Sherry Gloag
‘I don’t like strong tea, but how can you drink this peelly-wally brew?’
Peelly-wally,( peely-wally, peely wallie) …. (Scottish word) .. Sickly, Pasty, Wan, Pale, Peeeky, Unwell, Pale and Tired.
‘Then he’s wasting his time. I have no intention of returning home before your Valentine shindig, is that the right word?’
Shindig …. A festive party, often with dancing. Also called shindy.
‘And he wondered whether the canny old soul had had an ulterior motive when he sent his eldest son to Scotland for a recuperative holiday’
Canny … Careful and shrewd, especially where one’s own interests are concerned. Cautious in spending money; frugal.
As this was an author invitation to read and review, a download of His Chosen Bride was sent to me free of charge, by its author, Sherry Gloag.
This will in no way influence any comments I may express about the book, in any blog article I may post. Any thoughts or comments are my own personal opinion and I am in no way being monetarily compensated for this, or any other article.
