Feature & Follow Friday

Feature & Follow is a lovely meme hosted by Parajunkee and Alison Can Read. It's a weekly tradition where book bloggers can connect, gain followers, and learn a new tidbit about each other.

Q: 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 & book too.

Haha... I'm a tad ashamed to admit this, but it is what it is... kinda makes me feel...mildly illiterate.... but I actually had to look up the word moniker. Not a big word, but it was irking me that I didn't know exactly what it meant. I thought it was referring to a sign you see in front of a building... I wasn't too far off, so that was comforting :).

: mon·i·ker : 

noun Slang
A person's name, especially a nickname or alias

It came from one of my new reads, Ephemeral by Addison Moore...

The last thing Laken Stewart remembers is the oncoming car, then bursting through the windshield. 

Two months dissolve without her knowledge and she finds herself in unfamiliar surroundings with strangers who not only profess to know her but insist she’s someone else entirely. 

Laken discovers her long dead boyfriend, Wesley, has been thrown into this alternate world as well. He is quick to inform her she suffered a horrible fall and that her memory hasn’t fully returned. According to Wesley the other life she had—her name, her family, they were simply a side effect of her brain trauma. 

In her quest for answers she meets Cooper Flanders, the son of her psychiatrist who readily believes every word she says. 

Laken Stewart knows she died on that hot July afternoon, but now she’s alive—or is she?

Hopefully your word was BIGGER than mine... LOL

Follow me, I'll follow you ;)

Happy Reading Everyone :)

  1. There are plenty of small words that I don't know. Sometimes the bigger words are easier to figure out because you can work out the root word easier.
