Hallo, leute! Today, I thought that I’d do a quick book tag for today’s post! Book tags are always a lot of fun and this is one that I found especially interesting so I thought that I’d do it today for y’all! And it’s the “Seven Deadly Sins Book Tag” which was created by BookishlyMalyza on YouTube!
GREED—What is your most inexpensive book? What is your most expensive book?
My most inexpensive book is probably The Canterville Ghost by Oscar Wilde which I found at a used bookstore! As I recall, it was only $1 which was practically a steal! As for my most expensive book, that’d probably have been A Court of Mist and Fury by Sarah J. Maas. I generally don’t buy new books but it was the only available copy of the book and it cost approx. $25.
WRATH—What author do you have a love/hate relationship with?
Sarah J. Maas. I’m pretty on-the-fence in terms of what I think about her books. I’m not a big fan of her Throne of Glass series but I’m quite liking her A Court of Thorns and Roses series as of right now though the more I think about them the more I begin to think that I might not like them as much as I once thought.
I also kind of have a love/hate relationship with John Green. I really like John Green as a person and I love watching his YouTube videos, but I haven’t been a big fan of very many of his books.
GLUTTONY—What book have you deliciously devoured over and over with no shame whatsoever?
The Picture of Dorian Gray by Oscar Wilde is definitely the book that fits the bill for this question. You can ask any of my friends: I generally have a copy of this book on me somewhere. I love this book so much and it’s one that I read oh… maybe three to five times yearly?
SLOTH—What book have you neglected reading due to laziness?
For this question, I know that Momo by Michael Ende is probably the book that most deserves this spot. I’ve been wanting to reread Momo for years now and I’ve just been putting it off. It’s not that it’s a particularly long book but I’ve just been too lazy to go downstairs to my family bookshelf and pick it off the shelves when I’ve got so many books on my personal shelves waiting to be read!
PRIDE—What book do you most talk about in order to sound like a very intellectual reader?
Oh, man… Les Misérables, of course. Or anything by Shakespeare (Though I only really read Shakespeare for comedic appeal. Weird, I know.)! In general, though, I like to bring up all of the classics that I’ve read if I’m in the mood for making myself out to be an intellectual reader. I suppose that bringing up that I’ve read The Social Contract by Jean Jacques Rousseau also is a good pick for this sort of situation.
LUST—What attributes do you find most attractive in male or female characters?
Kindness. I know, I know. That probably sounds kinda lame but I am ever falling in love with the kind, good, sweet characters. It’s something that one of my friends thinks is utterly ridiculous but I can’t help it! Characters like Raoul de Chagny from The Phantom of the Opera and Ted Wilson from Fire by Night are near and dear to my heart due to their sweetness. However, I also do like some snarkiness in characters and back-and-forth banter is always a lot of fun. Characters that fall under this category would be Will Herondale from The Infernal Devices, Sebastian Wyatt from the Stranje House series, James Easton from The Agency series, and Gifford (G) from My Lady Jane.
ENVY—What books would you most like to receive as a gift?
At this moment? I really would like to receive Winter by Marissa Meyer as a gift as I can’t find that book anywhere! Also, receiving the rest of the books in the Jackaby series would be really nice!
And that’s it for me! Tschüss!
