Feature & Follow Friday September 28

Feature & Follow Friday is hosted by Parajunkee of Parajunkee's View and Alison of Alison Can Read.

Q: What is the BIGGEST word you’ve seen used in a book lately – that made you stop and look it up?

Mine wasn't so much a word as it was a name from They Wear What Under Their Kilts? by Katie Maxwell that my simple little brain just could not figure out how to pronounce, which was Ruaraidh, according to the the book it's the Gaelic way of pronouncing Rory. And don't ask me to pronounce it now I would probably just butcher it.


  1. I get so annoyed when I can't pronounce a name! I'm pretty sure I pronounced some Harry Potter names completely different than the movies...oh well! haha, that's just how my brain works! Hope you have a great weekend :)

    Here's my FF!

    ps. I love your design! The owls are adorable :)

  2. New follower! Hopping by. Yeah that's a pretty hard name to pronounce!

  3. I think that is one of the many reasons I enjoy listening to audio books, impossible pronunciations. Also, very stylized writing can sometimes be awkward to read.
    The word I had to look up was from David Mitchell's novel Cloud Atlas. Check it out here

  4. I would have never pronounced it Rory. New follower. my friday

  5. Holy cow, I have no idea how to pronounce that. I just spent a few minutes trying to figure it out, but I'm stumped.

    Here's my Friday Hop

  6. Oh I have had problems with names before. I even try and sound it out and its worse that way LOL.

  7. Those Gaelic words can be sooooooo hard to pronounce! My grandparents lived in Wales for several years, so whenever I run across those words or names I just call them up to ask them :) I am loving your blog, and I'm your newest follower hopping through from Parajunkie's FF :)
