Seven Deadly Sins Book Tag!

So I’ve figured something out about me and book tags…

I don’t really get the actual process of them haha. You’re supposed to actually be TAGGED by someone before you do it. I don’t do that. I just see these on other people’s blogs and think they’re super cool and decided, huh, that’ll make a good post this week, and I do them.

I’m useless as a blogger sometimes, I swear.

But anyway, I saw this tag on my good friend Kayla’s blog, The Thousand Lives (check her out because her blog is superb!) and I decided it would be kind of fun so here we go!

GREED

What is your most inexpensive book? 

That’s hard. Because I try to shop at used bookstores as much as I can. I also buy books ALL the time so I sort of lose track of when and where I bought them and how much I paid for them. That being said, I DO remember buying a hardback copy of Bloodlines in BEAUTIFUL condition at a used bookstore in Pasadena for 3 bucks. That was a total win!

WRATH

What author do you have a love/hate relationship with? 

Hmmm. Its hard to say. I usually like an author or I don’t like them. I don’t really have that in between. BUT. I will say this. I read Josephine Angelini’s Starcrossed trilogy and honestly wasn’t that impressed by it. It wasn’t that it was bad, because it wasn’t. She’s a terrific writer. I just didn’t care for the story that much. However, I just read the ARC of her new book, Trial by Fire, recently and that blew my mind and I totally love her for that book alone. I also would say Rick Riordan. I LOVE LOVE LOVE Percy Jackson and the Olympians and Heroes of Olympus but I’ve just never been able to get into Kane Chronicles. I just don’t like it at all. Ugh.

GLUTTONY

What book have you devoured over and over with no shame?

Easy cheesy, fresh and squeezy. I have read the Harry Potter series so much, I can’t even begin to count how many times. I probably have read each one about 50 times each and I’m not exaggerating. I love that series and I can quote them easily and I rock the HP trivia, for real. I also would say Trickster’s Choice by Tamora Pierce. Have you seen my copy of that book…I’ve torn it up…

SLOTH

What book have you neglected due to laziness?

A lot of books :/ But I think mostly…Game of Thrones. My dad bought me the entire series for Christmas in 2012 and I still haven’t read it. I read the first one, and about 100 pages into the second and I just can’t keep going. I know its going to take a bigger effort and all that but I can’t get myself to put in that effort. Sigh. Hopefully soon.

I’ll also say The Silkworm by Robert Galbraith (aka JK Rowling). I started reading it before my Nook crashed and wiped out what page I was on. I have the book still, obviously, but I don’t remember where I was and its pure laziness that is keeping me from finding my spot again.

PRIDE

What book do you talk about in order to sound like an intellectual reader? 

I don’t know that I really do, to be honest. I feel like I’m so upfront about my loyalty to YA literature and how I think there’s so much good YA out there. I spend a lot of my time supporting and defending YA lit and I’ve never really tried to make myself seem smarter than I am. I do love books like To Kill a Mockingbird, Gone with the Wind, Brave New World, but I never talk about them to make myself seem smarter.

LUST

What attributes do you find attractive in male or female characters?

Wow. This could go on for awhile. In guy characters, I tend to like the dark, tortured, sarcastic ones. Think Jace Lightwood of The Mortal Instruments, Jared Lynburn of the Lynburn Legacy, Adrian Ivashkov of the Vampire Academy and Bloodlines series. I like the fighters, usually, and the ones that are quick and clever. I like the guys that usually withhold their emotions but are so deep and beautiful when they share them. Of course, a guy like this in real life would probably make me roll my eyes but in books, I’m a sucker for the “bad” boy. Sirius Black. Han Solo. The guys that are bad boys but deep down, so good. For girl characters, its broader. I like fighters, I like girls who are smart and clever and who can handle on their own. I like girls who are loyal to their families and their friends. My main girl crush is Rose Hathaway and I just love everything about her.

ENVY

What book would you most like to receive as a gift? 

Difficult question. I don’t much like people buying me books haha because I like to pick out my own books. HOWEVER, I’ve been really wanting to read Deborah Harkness’ A Discovery of Witches and I just can’t bring myself to buy it every time I go to the store. Maybe someone will buy it for me haha!
