Wondrous Words Wednesday

An image for the weekly meme 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, so that we can visit and share your words of the week!

1. My first new word this week, I came across when I was commenting on a post published by the lovely Kristen, over at BookNAround. She was highlighting a book which she is eagerly awaiting publication of and this word was in the synopsis she had found.

CORUSCATING

Irreverent, coruscating, angry, at times shocking, but always revelatory, his memoir takes the reader into unfamiliar territory, much like the experience Alice had when she fell down the rabbit hole.

CORUSCATING …

 To give forth flashes of light; sparkle and glitter.

 To exhibit sparkling virtuosity.

2. My second word, comes from my current read ‘Dragondain’ by Richard Due, a YA fantasy story and the second installment in ‘The Moon Realm’ series.

NON SEQUITURS

Lily blushed. She’d forgotten that here, in the Moon Realm, her obscure history references would not only be unappreciated, but total non sequiturs to boot.

NON SEQUITURS

A conclusion or statement that does not logically follow from the previous argument or statement.

I haven’t contributed to this meme much over the last few weeks, so I am really looking forward to checking out everyone’s new words this week!

I can’t remember a time, even as a child, when I haven’t been passionate about books and reading.
I began blogging, when I realised just how many other people out there shared my passion for the written word and I have been continually amazed at the wealth of books that are available and the amount of great new friends I have made, from literally 'The Four Corners Of The World'.
