Seven Deadly Sins Tag

GREED --What is your most expensive book? What is your least expensive book?

~Inexpensive: Need by Carrie Jones-$4.99. I feel awful because I got it at Walmart, and I now know that when books end up there, the author's don't really see the royalty money. This book is one of my favourite books ever *drools.

~Expensive: Strictly for YA books, I usually get the hardcovers because I want to read them the day they come out. Most YA hardcover books are around $19-$30 anyway. When I was about 14 I was really into The Wind on Fire Trilogy. The last of the series, Firesong came out, and my grand mother spent nearly $50 on it when it first came out "in exchange for chores". Funny, because I'm looking at it now and all it says for price is £10.99 for a hardcover.  

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

~Amanda Hocking. The Watersong series is so...hit and miss with me. Her other books just don't interest me at all. But I like mermaids, so...you know.

GLUTTONY--What book have you deliciously devoured over and over with no shame whatsoever?

~Need by Carrie Jones and The Golden Compass Philip Pullman. Pullman's work has honestly changed who I am as a reader, writer, and how I view the world.

SLOTH--What book have you neglected reading due to laziness?

~The Replacement by Brenna Yovanoff. (Plus everything else that is sitting on my shelf because I am a terrible person.)

PRIDE--What book do you most talk about in order to sound like a very intellectual reader?

~ The Golden Compass by Philip Pullman. BECAUSE DID YOU GET THE RELIGIOUS IMAGERY AND UNDERTONES?! DID YOU!?

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

~Male: When they are more than white knights who save the day.
~Female: When they are more than their gender (pro tip: being a girl IS NOT a character trait).

ENVY--What books would you most like to receive as a gift?

~The Hunger Games Trilogy by Suzanne Collins. I only read the series once and I'd like to read the last two again. It's another one of those books where I want to scream about the literary importance of them.

Now copy and paste and answer, or make up your own questions! :D

  1. I haven't read the golden compass yet, but I have heard great things about it! And we have the same thing for envy!
