Top 10 Tuesday: Favorite Words

signature (3)

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly feature hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl. Each week there is a new topic for bloggers to choose and list their top ten. This week’s theme is Top 10 favorite words. 

I know, it’s not the prompt and this was an older TTT prompt. I decided to kind of change it up.

1. Catawampus- “Askew, awry, positioned diagonally.” I’m not even sure why I do but I love this word. It’s just so fun to say! 🙂

2. Wanderlust- ” a strong desire to travel.” I love to travel and wish that I could do it so much more! Such a pretty word too.

3. Serendipitous- “Occurring or discovered by chance in a happy or beneficial way.”

4. Incandescent- “Passionate or brilliant or emitting light as a result of being heated.” I love the passionate or brilliant definition.

5. Iridescent- “Showing luminous colors that seem to change when seen from different angles.” The word and meaning are beautiful! I love anything that is iridescent. It almost feels magical!

6. Aurora- “A natural electrical phenomenon characterized by the appearance of streamers of reddish or greenish light in the sky, usually the northern or southern magnetic pole.” A beautiful word and something I would love to see!

7. Penultimate- ” Last but one in a series of things; second to the last.” This is actually one of my husbands favorite words. I also like it because he finds ways to use it a lot.

8. Mermaid- “A fictitious or mythical half-human sea creature with the head and trunk of a woman and the tail of a fish, conventionally depicted as beautiful and with long flowing golden hair.” This was the definition from the online dictionary. I love ALL things mermaid. The colors, the myth, the word and everything!

9.  Love- “An intense feeling of deep affection.” What’s not to love? Love is important in all that you do!

10. Bibliophile- “A person who collects or has a great love of books.” Yup, I would be crazy if this wasn’t one of my favorite words!! 🙂


Any of your favorite words on this list? Let’s talk!!

  1. I like how you changed up the theme! Catawapus is amazing, I definitely need to incorporate that into my vocabulary somehow, haha. I also have always really liked the word penultimate for some reason! Nice word choices. I think it’s fair to say that all of us here are bibliophiles.:)

    • Thank you! Haha! The first time I heard, Catawampus, I incorporated it all the time. I’m sure some people thought I was crazy. It’s fun to use big words in everyday conversation! So true, we all are! 🙂


  2. Serendipitous is also one of my favorite words! Penultimate is a great one and while I don’t find ways to use it as often as I like, I do get excited when I am able to use it. 🙂
