Super huge thanks to Sophie @ Blame Chocolate for tagging me in this fun take on the Seven Deadly Sins! Sophie is seriously cool and kind, so check out her fun blog!
I was tagged in this about a month ago, so it’s been a long time coming, but I’ve finally got round to doing it! I have a whole other bunch of tags to complete soon too, so look out for those.
What is your most inexpensive book? What is your most expensive book?
The most inexpensive would be the Kindle Classic freebies I have, like The Yellow Wallpaper, The Woman in White, Uncle Silas etc!
The most expensive would have to be my House of Leaves book. It was only £20 but I don’t buy special editions or anything, so at the moment, that’s the most I’ve willinging spent on a book.
What author do you have a love/hate relationship with?
This is a toughy for me, because I like reading debuts so much, most of the time I’m reading new authors. I do have a few auto-but authors, and I love them, there’s not hate!
The first person that comes to mind is B. A. Paris. I guess it’s not really fair as she’s only written two books, one I loved, the other I hated, but that’s a love/hate relationship if there ever was one!
What book have you devoured over and over with no shame?
Another toughy for me… I don’t think I’ve ever reread a book, other than The Witches by Roald Dahl! A book I could devour over and over again would be To Kill a Mockingbird or American Psycho.
What book have you neglected reading due to laziness?
Either The Executioner’s Song by Norman Mailer or The Stand by Stephen King because they’re both such hefty books at over 1000+ pages each.
What book do you talk about in order to sound like an intelligent reader?
I actually don’t do this. I read trashy thrillers half the time and I don’t like the classics, so what’s there to brag about? “Oh I’ve read the first 50 pages of Pride & Prejudice… and I thought it was shit”
What attributes do you find attractive in male or female characters?
In a female, I like it when they’re not a melodramatic bitch, super clingy and whingy. I like female characters to be independent, even if they’re in a relationship or married, strong, sassy and intelligent.
In a male, I like it when they’re supportive of other characters, friendly, not necessarily handsome (I’m sick of the crooked smile, underrated looks kind of character), funny and smart.
What book would you like to receive as a gift?
Any on my TBR to be honest! But a collection I would love to receive would be the Little Black Classics from Penguin!
Again, a super big thanks to Sophie for tagging me in this one!
I’ve seen this on several people’s blogs now so I know it’s a popular tag. Sorry if I’ve tagged you and you’ve done this before!
