No one actually tagged me for The Bookish Seven Deadly Sins Tag, but I saw it on Alison Can Read and it looked fun (and I am a rebel), so I’m doing it anyway!
1. Greed: What is your most inexpensive book? What is your most expensive book?
My most inexpensive book is any book I received as an ARC. That means a lot of eBooks, but I’ve also received a handful of physical copies. My favorite of the physical copies I’ve received is definitely A Geek’s Guide to Dating by Eric Smith, so we’ll go with that!
As for my most expensive book… I’m not sure! I don’t really have any “expensive” books. I do have a signed and “Hanklerfish’d” copy of The Fault in Our Stars, though, and a copy of Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone that I had signed by Kazu Kibuishi at the A Celebration of Harry Potter event I attended at Universal Studios Florida in January, so I’m going to say those!
2. Wrath: What author do you have a love/hate relationship with?
John Green. I know, I know. He’s a YA genius, and I love that he gives young adults a unique and intelligent voice, but on the other side of the coin, I have issues with his overly pretentious teenagers at times.
3. Gluttony: What book have you devoured over and over with no shame?
The entire Harry Potter series. They’re my comfort books. I go to them when I’m feeling down, and they just make everything better.
4. Sloth: What book have you neglected reading due to laziness?
The 5th Wave. It’s fantastic, and I know I need to finish it (especially before the sequel hits the shelves!), but I’ll need to start all over again in order to refresh my memory, and that’s a big undertaking! I’m also with Alison on wanting to read classics for the edification, but not really feeling up to it. Plus Game of Thrones. I tried, and it seems to be a pretty taxing read.
5. Pride: What book do you talk about most in order to sound like an intellectual reader?
I don’t really think there’s any one particular book that I talk up to sound more intellectual, but I do have a tendency to pick apart just about any book and try to make myself sound intellectual while doing so, so there’s that, I guess.
6. Lust: What attributes do you find attractive in male or female characters?
This question is harder than I thought! I definitely like the nerdy guys. I do like the bad boys, too, but I really like male characters that can show their strength without being all stereotypical aggressive alpha male.
7. Envy: What book would you most like to receive as a gift?
I kind of like buying books for myself, but I’d never say no to a bookish gift–like a really awesome bookmark or coffee mug (Shush. Coffee is book-related).
I don’t really have enough friends in the book blogging community yet (or rather, ones I’d consider close enough to bully them into doing this tag without feeling bad), so I’ll leave this one up to you, dear reader! Should you choose to do the tag, please link to your post in a comment! I’d love to read it!
