Today I decided to do a book related tag called the 7 Deadly Sins of Reading. This tag was created by booktuber Malyza Caballero about a year ago. I know it's an older tag but it looked fun and I figured why not! If you would like to participate in this tag, please do so and send the link to me. I would love to see your responses!
What is your most inexpensive book? What is your least expensive book?
My most expensive book is a version of Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet by Michael Rosen, beautifully illustrated in striking colors, it cost around $30.00. I love it!
My least expensive book would be the various free ones I download on my Kindle and Nook, far too many to list.
What author do you have a love/hate relationship with?
I have to say without a doubt Christopher Pike. He is a master at beginning a story but terrible at ending one. His stories often draw me in quickly, build up my expectations, and then leave me bitter and confused. Yet, I can't quit reading his novels. My favorite series from him is the Thirst series. (I've read them all)
What book have you deliciously devoured over and over with no shame whatsoever?
I hope this answer doesn't cause a horde of angry readers to show up on my doorstep wielding pitchforks and fire...
But once I read a book, no matter how much I enjoy it, I normally won't ever read it again. I've only re-read one book and it was called It Happened to Nancy: By an Anonymous Teenager, A True Story from Her Diary
What book have you neglected reading due to laziness?
I may be the only person in the world with this answer but I haven't read any of the Twilight books by Stephenie Meyer. I've seen every movie but I'm far too lazy to read all those giant sized books, the worst part... I own them all and still won't read them.
What book do you most talk about in order to sound like a very intellectual reader?
Hmm, I've thought about this question for a long time and I'm still having a hard time coming up with an answer. For the sake of this question, I have to say either Romeo and Juliet by William Shakespeare or The Tell-Tale Heart by Edgar Allan Poe.
What attributes do you find most attractive in male or female characters?
Male Characters: I admire intelligent, confident, physically strong, and all around bad boy male characters with a touch of gentleness and sweetness. The more damaged they are the better.
Female Characters: I admire independent, strong-willed, and feisty female characters. They can get the job done on their own and are full of bravery. They aren't afraid to take risks even if they doubt themselves.
What books would you most like to receive as a gift?
I would most like to receive the boxed set of the Mortal Instruments series by Cassandra Clare. I want those books so bad it hurts. I am holding out until book 6 is released before I read them and can obtain the entire set together.
