This bookish meme was hosted/created by BermudaOnion’s Weblog.

So, far I have three words that I found interesting.

Spirals in Time: The Secret Life and Curious Afterlife of Seashells by Helen Scales

Crepuscular

  • resembling or relating to twilight

Anna Karenina by Leo Tolstoy

Pecuniary

  • Relating to or consisting of money

Intrigue

  • Make secret plans to do something illicit or detrimental to someone
    • Now, I know what intrigue meant. In the context of the book, I just really liked how it was used. This was used in the context of the affair between Prince Stepan and his governess. They were having an “intrigue”; it sounds so posh, so upper echelon of society so different when compared to the simple yet plain usage of the word affair.
