I love learning new words. I’ve always felt that my vocabulary needs a lot of work! It annoys me no end when I don’t understand a word or why it’s being used where it is. I should know better!
I did what this meme said, I followed these directions provided over at Should Be Reading:
- Grabbed my current read
- Opened to a random page
- Shared two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page
- I was CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!)
- Shared the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!
Ultimately, my random choice of words ended up teasing not only you but my overactive, ticklish brain as well. Check this out:
“He’s fine and will be home soon, I’m sure.”
Apparently my middle sister was the only one in the family besides Marcos who didn’t know that Manuel was engaged in something clandestine.

Clandestine. Hmmm… what does that mean? Here I go again!
YourDictionary.com defines it this way: clan·des·tine (klan des′tin), adjective
kept secret or hidden, esp. for some illicit purpose; surreptitious; furtive
My translation of that is, “secretly sneaky while doing something potentially illegal.” There, that’s better. That’s the word for the week, clandestine. Useful too! Thanks, Dellani!
Yeah, I’ll talk about the book soon, as soon as I finish reading it. So far, so good! How did I find this book? A little Facebook group that can be found here. If you’re not on Facebook, you can follow the book reviews here at Robin Falls.
This is the first time I’ve done this so I feel the need to say that, “I only followed the directions.” I hope you feel teased and a little tickled!
