I often come upon words that I either haven't heard of before I can't remember the meaning. These posts are for those words and in hopes of helping others remember the meanings and introduce them to words they may not know.
Our next word is...
Where I Found ItThis is a word I heard of before and thought I had a vague sense of the meaning. I came across it again recently while reading The Secret River by Kate Grenville.
- excessively particular, critical, or demanding; hard to please:
- requiring or characterised by excessive care or delicacy; painstaking.
From the book: Buckles of flesh creased down from his nose, and his upper lip gave him a fastidious look.
My Sentence: Keira took fastidious care while placing her Mum's pictures around her new room.
I learnt something new with this word. I like the meaning and definitely think it is a word I am likely to use more. Another thing I like about it is that it has a simple sounding to it even though it is a longer word.
