I’ve been tagged by the awesome Dani at http://onlybooksandhorses.wordpress.com If you haven’t checked out her blog yet, you should. It’s one of my favorites! So, here are my seven bookish deadly sins:
Greed: What is your most inexpensive book? What is your most expensive book? ~ I have a limited budget so I’m a big believer in libraries. And I’m not biased because I was a children’s librarian! Okay, maybe a little. Like Dani I also take advantage of Amazon’s Kindle freebies. I’m also addicted to NetGalley, Blogging For Books, and Goodreads contest giveaways. The first book I ever won was Shattered, by Kevin Hearne. He happens to be one of my favorite authors. I think you could hear my screams across town. The most expensive book would definitely be Harry Potter Page To Screen: The Complete Filmaking Journey, by Bob McCabe for $47. It was for Christmas though! And it’s Harry!
Wrath: Which author do you have a love/hate relationship with? ~ Stephenie Meyers. I loved Twilight and New Moon, but after that things went quickly downhill for me. By the time I finished the last book I wanted to chuck it across the room. I also felt that both Edward and Jacob should tell Bella to take a hike, and go get a beer together. I know this wasn’t the question, but I have a hate/hate relationship with Fifty Shades of Grey. I had to sneak this in because I truly loathe and despise this book. So much so that if there was one book I would ever consider burning (not that I would), this would be it!!! I apologize to any fans. This is just my humble opinion.
Gluttony: What book have you devoured over and over with no shame? ~ The entire Harry Potter series. I’ve read them so often I can quote entire passages verbatim! Is this a good thing?
Sloth: What book have you neglected to read due to laziness? ~ Dr. Zhivago. I loved the movie and the book has held a permanent position on my TBR list since high school. Now I feel so guilty.
Pride: What book do you talk about most in order to sound like an intellectual? ~ Anything by Jane Austen and Shakespeare. Luckily I really do love them. Honest!
Lust: What attributes do you find attractive in male or female characters? ~ Strength. But not to the point of being obnoxious.
Envy: What book would you most like to receive as a gift? ~ An autographed copy of Blood of Olympus by Rick Riordan. Please, please, please, anyone???? Okay. I’m getting control over myself now.
Thanks again Dani! This was so much fun! I would now like to pass this on to my blogging buddy Emma at http://emmakwall.com Have fun lovely Emma!
