Wondrous Word Wednesday

Wondrous Words Wednesday is a weekly meme from Bermuda Onion where we share new (to us) words that we’ve encountered in our reading.  If you want to play along, grab the button, and write a post.

I came across this word in The Lies that Bind by Kate Carlisle

Chary: 

archaic : deartreasured
: discreetly cautious: asa : hesitant and vigilant about dangers and risksb : slow to grant, accept, or expend <a person very charyof compliments>
“‘I agree it’s all become a bit chary,’ Derek confessed as he struggled to keep the bookcase suspended.”

Have you come across any new words lately?
