The word that has caught my eye this week is......


So this is a word I do know but I don’t think I have ever used it in a sentence, I just like the way it sounds. It was featured in The Fine Art of Invisible Detection which is a fab novel by Robert Goddard, review soon.

  1. I have seen this in a book before but it's not used that often. Belligerent is a good word too😁

  2. Same here, I know it, but I don't think I've ever used it. We should try to use it in the future. 😁

  8. I've missed your post completely this week my friend! So sorry! I literally only opened the blog this morning for the first time this week. Hectic life at the moment. I need a holiday and so don't feel like being pugnacious at all...!! Great word!

    I'll have a new WWW up on Wednesday. Promise!
