Hi everyone, and welcome to my answers on the Seven Deadly Sins tag! I have no idea who started this tag, but I got tagged by Ner from Cup of Coffee and Book (thanks!).
Greed – What is your most inexpensive book?
I have a pretty big collection of free books on my Kindle, and lately I’ve been visiting the charity shop more often. They sell books for little over a buck, it’s awesome!
Wrath – What author do you have a love/hate relationship with?
Laurell K. Hamilton. And even stronger with Anne Rice. I LOVE The Vampire Lestat, but didn’t really enjoy The Wolf Gift. Her books are very hit or miss, and I’m quite cautious before I pick one up, even though she’s the creator of one of my favourite characters of all time (Lestat).
Gluttony – What book have you devoured over and over with no shame?
Harry Potter! I’ve read the first three books over fifteen times. When I was young, I would just read the first three, and when I was finished, start over again. No shame!
Sloth – What book have you neglected reading due to laziness?
Ahhh, so many! One I feel particularly bad about is The Wise Man’s Fear. I’ve talked about how intimidating I find that book before, and truthfully, I’m just too lazy to read it. And that while I adored the first book by Rothfuss.
Pride – What book do you most talk about in order to sound like an intellectual reader?
Ha, I don’t really try to come across as an intellectual reader. But because as part of my curriculum we have lit history classes, I do feel kind of awesome that I’ve read so many classics. I’m quite well-versed in Dickens, Kafka, Zola, Flaubert, Baudelaire, Turgenev, Dostoyevsky and Cervantes, so on many topics I appear to be very well-read.
Lust – What attributes do you find attractive in male or female characters?
Hard question. I think I find the same things attractive in both; loyalty, humor, honesty, self-confidence. Although I love tortured characters, I’m kind of sick of the wishy-washy female. I don’t really care about appearances, so I don’t have any preferences how my characters look.
Envy – What book would you most like to receive as a gift?
This set of Harry Potter books. They are AMAZING. And I can’t justify buying yet another set of Harry Potter books, I already have two ):
If you haven’t done this tag yet, and do want to, I’m tagging you!
