Feature and Follow #1!

FF 2012 Feature & Follow #115
Feature and Follow #1.

The hosts are Parajunkee and Alison Can Read. This week's features are Jadore Happy Endings and (un)Conventional Bookviews


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 and book too.

This is kind of hard to answer. Since I"m not the type of person to check out a long word in a book I'm reading, I would most likely skip it and use context clues to find out what it means. Really, this is not a big word, but it just got me curious.

in·cu·bus/ˈiNGkyəbəs/

Noun:
  1. A male demon believed to have sexual intercourse with sleeping women.
  2. A cause of distress or anxiety.



I was reading Beg for Mercy by Shannon Dermott and since the word came up a lot in the book, I searched it up. LOL.
This is my first time doing this, but I find this pretty fun! ;) It's quick, fast, easy, and interesting!
If you follow me, just comment and I'll follow back! ;D

  1. Hi! Following you back. Incubus is a very handy word to know when reading paranormal romance, as is succubus (shows up all the time in stuff like the Anita Blake series by Laurell K. Hamilton).
    To answer your post on my blog, I have not read Beautiful Creatures, but am aware of the series. Being a librarian is a lot more work than people realize. But it is rewarding. :)

  3. I hear that word so much but for some reason, never imagined that it could mean that lol (probs because I don't read too much paranormal romance). Very cool though!

    Thanks for stopping by! New follower :)

  6. Ok I have to say, I find it HILARIOUS the difference in the two meanings of incubus. You would think that if meaning #1 was happening, you might wake up with LESS stress and anxiety....maybe.
    The word I had to look up was from David Mitchell's novel Cloud Atlas. Check it out here

  12. Maybe it's because I read way too much horror at way too young an age, but incubus and succubus are entrenched in my vocabulary. :)

  15. I'm not one to look up words while reading either. I am usually to into the story to want to step away to look up an unfamiliar word.

  24. Write more, thats all I have to say. Literally, it seems as
    though you relied on the video to make your point.

    You clearly know what youre talking about, why waste your intelligence on just posting videos to your blog when you could be giving us something enlightening to read?

  25. Hey I know this is off topic but I was wondering if you knew of any widgets I could add to
    my blog that automatically tweet my newest twitter updates.

    I've been looking for a plug-in like this for quite some time and was hoping maybe you would have some experience with something like this. Please let me know if you run into anything. I truly enjoy reading your blog and I look forward to your new updates.
