SEVEN DEADLY SINS TAG

Capture.PNGI saw this on a board, but wasn’t sure who the original creator was! If you know (or if it’s you!) let me know so I can give proper credit!

1. Greed. What’s your most inexpensive book? Your most expensive?

10893214I have a lot of inexpensive book (I shop used and library sales) but I know I did get a copy of THE CAVENDISH HOME FOR BOYS AND GIRLS by Claire Legrand for a nickel at a thrift store in Tennessee. It was in perfect condition so that was definitely a lucky find!

 

 

 

 

8878844Most expensive definitely goes to JOHNNY HALLOWEEN: TALES OF THE DARK SEASON by Norman Partridge. I fell in love with DARK HARVEST and was super disappointed to discover that both DARK HARVEST and JOHNNY HALLOWEEN were out of print. I found DARK HARVEST for fairly cheap but JOHNNY HALLOWEEN was limited to 1500 signed copies… and I found one on Amazon for $30. Steep price for such a small book but I would definitely have paid more for it to complete my collection.

 

 

2. Wrath. What author do you have a love/hate relationship with.

I have a lot of those, to be honest! But in lieu of keeping my petty down, I’m not going to say anything other than there is one particular author whose raven boys I like… but not her.

3. Gluttony. What book have you devoured over and over again with no shame?

Let’s be real, no one is surprised at this answer. I would read Becky Albertalli’s grocery list. While I haven’t read SIMON but twice this year, I have completely wrecked myself over THE UPSIDE OF UNREQUITED. Becky just knows how to write a feel good story.

4. Sloth. What book have you neglected due to laziness?

I don’t know why I can’t finish this book other than the fact that I am HELLA intimidated by the sheer size of it and there’s only so many reading positions with a book that size. My goal was to finish this before I saw the movie but with 600 pages left… I don’t think that’s going to be happening. I will finish it.

One day.

Some day.

Maybe.

5. Pride. What book do you talk about a lot in order to sound like an intellectual reader.

I haven’t bragged about any books in a long, long time but when I was a kid, I definitely liked to point out that I had read some of John Steinbeck’s most famous works. Even then, I don’t think it was to make myself seem smarter… I just genuinely enjoyed his works and I think adults made a bigger deal out of it than I did.

6. Lust. What attributes do you find attractive in female characters? (The original question said male but… I’m not attracted to men sooooo… change how you want.)

I am definitely attracted to unlikable female characters. And by unlikable, I mean more along the lines of characters who don’t act how we expect them to. I like characters who show that they are hurt, act on that hurt, but also know how and when to apologize. Also, I really love Leah Burke.

7. Envy. What book would you most like to receive as a gift right now?

SO. MANY??? But mainly TIMEKEEPER and THE DREADFUL TALE OF PROSPER REDDING (I have an ARC but that hardcover is hearteyes)

And that’s it for this tag!

  1. I really like this tag! I’ve only read Simon Vs once (this summer) but I’m already itching for a re-read. I can’t wait for Leah’s book!!!
