7 Deadly Sins of Reading



The awesome Meg @Adrift on Vulcan tagged me. Let the party begin..


What is your most expensive book? What is your least expensive? 

Well, you know me, I'm all about the posh stuff. No, not really. The most expensive book I have is probably The 5th Wave by Rick Yancey. It's not that much more expensive than the rest of my hardcovers. Around 18$.
The least expensive was a secondhand book titled The Mexican. It's based on a movie by Brad Pitt and Julia Roberts. It was roughly around 1.50$. 

Which author do you have a love-hate relationship with?

Cassandra Clare. Loved the first TMI books, but when I read the second one, it all started crashing down, and I started pointing out plot holes in the entire series. 


What book have you deliciously devoured over and over with no shame whatsoever? 

I don't reread books, but if I did, it would be Daughter of Smoke and Bone by Laini Taylor. 
Also, I once reread The Notebook by Nicholas Sparks, but let's not talk about that. 


What book have you neglected to read due to laziness?

Requiem by Lauren Oliver. It's not so much laziness, as the fact that I know I'm not going to like it. Plus, the whole Julian/Alex triangle doesn't interest me anymore. 

There are others, because you know.. Sloth is my middle name. 


What book do you most talk about in order to sound like a very intellectual reader? 

50 Shades of Grey, and A Shore Thing by Snooki Polizzi. People totally believe I'm intellectual afterwards. I can read it in their tears eyes. 

Seriously though, I don't think I've read any of the "acclaimed" books, or whatever they call them. I read books that I know will enjoy, and if I'll boast about anything, it will be about how awesome they were. If you should insist, though, I once attempted to read a dictionary. BEAT THAT!


What attributes do you find most attractive in male or female characters?

*flexes hands* This is gonna be a looooong list, son. Why not do it in a fun way?

Intelligent. This is very important for me. Like me some smart guys.
Romantic? Respectful? Reem-obsessed? ..Wait, what? I may have googled adjectives starting with R.
Easy going. Laid back. I love characters that genuinely don't give a shit
Amusing. I value humor, you guys. I really do.
D heheheeeeee. What, you didn't know I had a 10 year old's mentality? Shocker.
Eccentric. There has got to be at least one weird thing about him
Loyal. Not necessarily to the MC, but to family, friends and that sort of thing.


What books would you most like to receive as a gift?

Do you know those royal scrolls that extend for miles and miles? That's my wish list. But if I had to pick.. 

Lips Touch: Three Times by Laini Taylor,
Lies of Locke Lamora by Scott Lynch.

So, I know I should tag someone by the end of this post, but honestly? I want EVERYONE to join in on the fun. If you read this, you're tagged!
