Seven Deadly Sins Tag
I saw this tag on Words & Stitches and liked the topics, so here we go!
Greed | What is your most expensive book and what is your least expensive book?
Most Expensive: I mostly buy ebooks or used paperbacks so the majority of my books are very cheap. However, I do have a hardcover, leather bound Complete Tales and Poems of Edgar Allen Poe that I bought several years back.
Least Expensive: I have a ton of free ebooks, so I can’t really pick just one for my least expensive book.
Wrath | Which author’s books do you have a love/hate relationship with?
I hate to say it, but it’s probably Sherrilyn Kenyon’s books because I used to love them but as each series got longer and longer, I struggled to stay engaged. I’ve never come across books that start so strongly for me and then just fall apart later in the series.
I’m not saying her newer books are bad, just that they don’t work for me. I lose interest in the overall series story and I get bogged down in the huge cast of characters and the constantly changing alliances.
Gluttony | What book have you deliciously devoured over and over again with no remorse whatsoever?
My favorites book of all time is Slave to Sensation by Nalini Singh and I’ve read it 11 times since it came out in 2006. It’s a regular reread for me and it’s always comforting and familiar. It’s also one of my slump buster reads because I love it so much.
Sloth | What book have you neglected reading due to laziness?
Eeek! It would be The Thing About Love by Julie James which I bought when it came out April of 2017. I wanted to reread the previous books first so I waited to read it and now I’ve just fallen hopelessly behind. I have started rereading the previous books but I’ve only gotten through two. I love James’ books, don’t get me wrong, there are just so many new books that come out that I wanted to read. Oops.
Pride | Which book do you most talk about in order to sound like a very intellectual reader?
Honestly, nothing. I don’t care about being an intellectual reader and I feel like no one else should either. Read what you want to read because you’re interested in it, not because it makes you seem smarter. Life is too short to be something you’re not.
Lust | What attributes do you find most attractive in male and female characters?
Male Characters: I’m a huge fan of nerdy male characters or the often named “beta male”. Take charge is great but I love when a guy can be sensitive and gentle too. And smart is always a big plus for me because I love smart guys.
Female Characters: I enjoy strong female characters. I don’t just mean physically strong but strong of spirit and mind, I like them to know their own minds and what they want. Whether they’re badass or maternal, I just don’t want them to be spineless.
Envy | What book would you most like to receive as a gift?
Any book from my ginormous TBR list!
