Seven Deadly Sins Tag

Sunday, September 21, 2014


I was tagged by the lovely Gloria from Gloria The Violinist to do the Seven Deadly Sins tag, so here we go!
 Greed - What is your most expensive book? What is your most inexpensive book?
The most expensive books I own would be the hardback adult fiction books I bought, such as The Invention of Wings by Sue Monk Kidd and Skin Games by Jim Butcher.
The most inexpensive book would be the books that were given to me by friends and family, for all sorts of reasons. And, honestly, those are too many to really list here. Thanks friends and family, for my awesome collection of free-for-me books. ;)
Wrath - What author do you have a love/hate relationship with?
That would probably have to be James Dashner. I love how exciting and interesting his books are, but I get so tired of being left "out of the loop" during his books. For example, in The Maze Runner series, we see things from Thomas's point of view, meaning we learn things as he does - which oftentimes leaves us in the dark. I'm on the third book and I still don't know half the things I feel I should!

Gluttony - What book have you devoured over and over with no shame?
I honestly don't really have a habit of reading the same book over and over, but one that I've read a few times, as well as referenced numerous times, is my favorite classic, Little Women by Louisa May Alcott. If you haven't read this classic, make sure you put it on your TBR pile!
Sloth - What book have you neglected reading due to laziness?
I don't think I've really ever neglected books out of laziness, I just don't have time to read everything I want to. And, again, this list is really too numerous to name. One book that really comes to mind, though, is Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn. I need to read the book before I see the movie, but I just don't know when I'll get the time!
Pride - What book do you talk about most to sound like an intellectual reader?
That would probably be classics, particularly those few that I've really read, understood and digested. Those include Little Women, Wuthering Heights, The Crucible,  Jane Eyre and Pride and Prejudice. And no, I wasn't a big fan of those last two.
Lust - What attributes do you find most attractive in a male or female character?
Intellect, confidence, faithfulness, caring - and if they love books, that's definitely a plus!
Envy - What book would you most like to receive as a gift?
Breaking the Rules by Katie McGarry - which releases on my birthday! Take notes, family and friends!
And that's it! What do you think of my answers? Let me know in the comments and I tag any and all who would like to participate. =D

    1. It definitely is! I loved reading it as a child, and I still has a place of honor on my bookshelf - and probably always will. Wuthering Heights is another classic I've kept a hold of. It's definitely an epic love story, one you wouldn't expect from that time period. Definitely read it when you get a chance!

      I knooow! I'm so stoked. Now if December would just hurry up! =P

    1. I knooow! It's been tempting me, sitting on my bookshelf, chanting, "Read me. Read me." But I have so many books to review before then! Gah! Why can't there be more hours in a day?

  3. Great answers! Gone Girl was eh for me, but I look forward to your opinion.

    And huh... You prefered Wuthering Heights over Jane Eyre? I have to say, I normally hear it the other way around, lol!

    1. Concerning Gone Girl, I hope I like it as much as everyone else does! They've been praising it for ages now.

      And I'm definitely in the minority when it comes to preferring Wuthering Heights to Jane Eyre. Heathcliff may have been a little crazy, but it love was so strong. As for Rochester, all he did was be an ass, so... yeah. XD I just think of Wuthering Heights as the ultimately love story, even if the love story is a little crazy in and of itself. I just - gah! I love it. Almost as much as Little Women, but LW will always have a special place in my heart since it was the first classic I ever read. <3
