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!

My first word this week, appears in my current book ‘The House On Willow Street’ by Cathy Kelly.

CHIAROSCURO

She was the pale version of her sister, chiaroscuro in action, with strawberry blonde hair …

CHIAROSCURO …

1. The technique of using light and shade in pictorial representation.
2. The arrangement of light and dark elements in a pictorial work of art.
The second word, is also relates to ‘The House On Willow Street’, only this time is taken from a review of said book.
PEREGRINATIONS
The characters, with all their detailed idiosyncrasies, are authentically portrayed, and the peregrinations of the complex plot make for a fascinating journey and an excellent read.
PEREGRINATIONS
To travel from place to place, especially on foot and with the suggestion of a roundabout route.
Just the two new to me words this week. I am looking forward to discovering what new words everyone else is sharing !

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'.
