Wondrous Words Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Bermudaonion's Weblog where we share new (to us) words that we’ve encountered in our reading. If you want to play along, grab the new button (or the old graphic), and join the fun! (Don’t forget to leave a link in your comment if you’re participating.)
From Graceling by Kristin Cashore:
1. Rakish "The skin had blackened around his eye, the gold eye, an made his gaze even more rakish and uneven than it had before."
Smart, jaunty, dashing.
2. Inanity "Katsa couldn't bear her own inanity."
Lack of sense, significance, or ideas; silliness.
3. Morass "...partly because as the snow melted the yard turned into a morass of mud."
A tract of low, soft, wet ground.
