Wondrous Words Wednesday

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.

  1. I thought "morass" is when someone is acting more stupid than usual.

  2. I have to admit I don't recognize any of these words, either. This is a great mini-vocab lesson! :)

  3. I love this meme!

    I only knew Inanity from your words :-)

  4. I have Graceling now, but I think I'm going to have to return it to the library before I get it read.
