Memos: TMST- Obscure Words & BBH – Classic Novel

Tell Me Something Tuesday hosted by Rainy Day Ramblings.

This week question: How do you feel about author’s throwing big, obscure words into their books?

Honestly I don’t like big obscure words. If I have a physical copy of the book and I run across a word I don’t know I have to look it up and I h8 taking the time to do that just to understand what the author is trying to convey. Now, with the eCopys you can easily look up words, but still it’s a pain to have to do that. When I pick up a book I want to be immersed and not get bogged down with words I don’t know or understand.

I’m not big on classic novels, but one I’ve always wanted to read and haven’t is Interview with the Vampire.

I’ve always wanted to read Interview with a Vampire too. Someday.

It is hard to look up books when you’re listening and driving. Even more so, if I don’t know the spelling, which can be hard with audiobooks. I don’t mind so much when I can figure the word out in context and it makes sense.

Dani @ Perspective of a Writer

Big vocab words are okay with me as long as its clear in the text what it means. And totally Interview with a Vampire!!

Malka @ Paper Procrastinators

I don’t mind learning new words through reading, even if they are big and obscure. And I enjoy flowery writing, which many times contains words I don’t understand. I will admit that I don’t look every word up though, even if I’m reading a book on my Kindle. I either try to figure it out from context or just gloss over it!

Interview with a Vampire is in my tbr


Thanks for participating in TMST. I am so glad I am not the only one who is annoyed by big vocab words. Definitely read Interview with a Vampire. It’s one of my favorites. I adore Louis.

I don’t mind,but I’m weird like that. I love learning new words,it helps keep your mind working. I’ve read Anne Rices Interview with a vampire a couple of times. It’s a awesome read and the main vampire character Lestat is fascinating!!! Shared on my socials!💖💋

I agree on both. I don’t like having to look up words, even if it is easily done in an ebook. It takes you out of the story and it takes a few minutes to get back into it.

I also have been wanting to read Interview with a Vampire. One of these days I’m going to get to it. It’s a whole series, right? I need to investigate.
