The Seven Deadly Sins book tag

 

BLOG TAG - SEVEN DEADLY SINS

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.

GREED

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!

871186

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.

 

WRATH

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!

 

GLUTTONY

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.

 

SLOTH

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.

 

PRIDE

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”

 

LUST

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.

 

ENVY

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!

  2. Hehehehe… I can relate with The Stand… I got a copy handed to me by a colleague and I was like- yeah, I will read it but every time I see it, I’m like- er, maybe I wait until I have more free time to really dig into it… naturally, that free time I’m waiting for is an elusive beast XD

  3. I loved reading this! Because our taste in books is so different I always find super cool answers from you 😀
    “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”” <– this, right here, made me burst out laughing because it's kind of relatable too XD
    Penguin's Little Black Classics are honestly so aesthetically pleasing, I wouldn't mind getting them all either.
    Great post, Zuky, as always! And thanks so much for the shoutout, you rock ❤

  4. Hello! I agree with you that I would love to have all my TBR books haha. But .. I love the trilogy The Infernal Devices by Cassandra Clare and it would be nice to give me because here in Argentina it is very expensive 😦
