I thought it would be a great idea to start doing some book tags!
I see a lot of these going around BookTube and have always wanted to do these and I don’t think us bloggers who don’t YouTubing that should be a restriction – I think we should all do them if we want 🙂
I got this tag off of 4evercrazyforya – thanks girl!
1. Greed: What is your most inexpensive book? What is your most expensive book?
My most expensive book has to be my signed limited-edition hardcover copy of Vampire Academy which cost about €25. In fact, Vampire Academy is probably the book in which I invested the most money, since I have about 5 copies. (People who will continue reading my future blog posts will soon learn the entire series is my favorite series of all time).
The cheapest book I got was (the Atom edition of) Hunted by P.C. and Kristin Cast, which I snagged for €2 in a used book basket at a department store.
2. Wrath: What author do you have a love/hate relationship with?
I’m pretty sure this price has got to go to George R. R. Martin, the magnificent author of the bestselling series A Song of Ice and Fire (more commonly known as Game of Thrones).
His writing is just breathtakingly phenomenal and intense and I absolutely devoured Game of Thrones. However, as most people know he has the lovely habit of killing off (almost) every last one of my favorite characters and I haven’t yet forgiven him for many of them.
3. Gluttony: Which book have you devoured over and over again with no shame?
This will have to go to Vampire Academy by Richelle Mead again. I’ve read it about 7 times by now and I still haven’t gotten enough of it!
4. Sloth: Which book have you neglected reading due to laziness?
I have to say that I don’t reaaally neglect books. If I love them, I read them and if I don’t then I stop. However, I have been ‘reading’ A Clash of Kings by George R. R. Martin for a while now and I’ve only gotten through the first ten chapters or so. I feel like the entire Song of Ice and Fire series is either a book that you rush through because you can’t get enough of it or you just really don’t feel like it. It’s so richly written and has such an enormous plot that I feel like it requires my full attention and because of college beginning I didn’t really continue it.
5. Pride: What book do you talk about most in order to sound like an intellectual reader?
Probably 1984 by George Orwell.
My boyfriend encouraged me to read this book and I actually enjoyed it a lot! However, since I’m not really into classics much this seems to be the only book I can gush about to most people without getting strange looks.
6. Lust: What attributes do you find attractive in a male character?
Kindness, a nice muscly chest, a smile that will sweep me off my feet, tousled hair, a bit of a bad boy attitude but who still has a warm, selfless heart. (Christian Ozera and Adrian Ivashkov anyone?)
7. Envy: What book would you most like to receive as a gift?
There isn’t a specific book that has already come out that I need someone else to get for me (that’s what Amazon is for!) but if I could wish for any book it would have to be Lord of Shadows by Cassandra Clare, the sequel to the newly released Lady Midnight of the Dark Artifices series.
I tag: anyone who wants to do this may do so! 🙂 If you don’t feel like doing the tag yourself but have some thoughts, please share them in the comments!
