                              The 7 Deadly Sins Book Tag

Hello everyone! I am back with another book tag…*drum roll*

I have katytastic's video in the media; something went wrong with the original tag video and the video wouldn't appear in the media.

So this is The 7 Deadly Sins Book Tag, where there will be seven questions to answer, one for each deadly sin. So let’s get started.

 

Greed: What is your most expensive book and what is your least expensive book?

The least expensive book I ever bought was Dragonsong by Anne McCaffrey.

The story follows a girl named Menolly, who lives in the world of Pern where dragons and their riders protect the land from Thread, a substance that falls from the sky due to a certain planet's closeness and destroys every living thing it touches. Menolly wants to ride a dragon at least once, but even more than that, she wants to be a Harper- a musician, and to sing and play to her hearts content. But her father represses her dreams, forbidding her to do so. Frustrated, Menolly runs away and hides in some caves near the coast, where she finds a clutch of fire lizards-small cousins of the dragons- and teaches them to sing.

There was a huge sale on the bookstore I bought Dragonsong from, and all 3 books in the trilogy were on sale. I bought only the first; if I knew I’d love the book and the rest of the books were hard to find, I would’ve bought all three. The cost, my friends, was about Rs. 49 (which is $ 0.80).

The most expensive book I have bought is Chicken Soup for the Soul: My Dog’s Life. Yes, I know. Don’t look at me like that. I bought it for around Rs. 600 to Rs. 700 (around $ 9.80 to $ 11.43).

Wrath: Which author do you have a love/hate relationship with?

Most definitely Derek Landy, author of the dead famous bestseller Skulduggery Pleasant.

This man seems hell bent on putting my heart into a blender and pressing the “ON” switch. Well congratulations Mr. Landy, you seem to be doing very well. I swear, in almost EVERY book in the series, something happens to the characters that I will not like. Derek Landy has succeeded in frustrating and traumatizing me, making me want to wail and throw the book at the wall. Seriously.

Have you never heard of making readers happy?

But to be honest, I wouldn’t love the series as much as I do if Derek Landy hadn’t done what he did to his characters.

Gluttony: What book have you deliciously devoured over and over again with no remorse whatsoever?

Pretty much every book in my bookshelf.

I do remember however, that I was going through this period where I disliked, or was dissatisfied with every book I read, and then I read Clockwork Angel by Cassandra Clare. The relief that washed over my poor good-book-hungry body when I read the awesome work of art was probably too much, which might explain why I started the book all over again a mere five minutes after I finished the last page.

Sloth: What book have you neglected reading due to laziness?

Now hold on a sec, hear me out. I love classics alright? I have nothing against them, and I do love picking up the occasional old timer when I need a break from the action packed, fast paced books that I usually read. But Treasure Island I just could not finish.

This book has been lying in my shelf (it’s not there now) for the past couple of months, and I'm still not done with it. I think I'm about 100 pages or so into the book but then I just dropped it (figuratively of course) because I was bored and extremely extremely lazy.

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

I actually don’t know. I don’t think there is a specific book that I talk about in order to sound intellectual, but I DO know that I sometimes talk a lot about the dystopian genre in books because, you know, it’s on the rise, it’s popular and a lot of people don’t actually know what dystopian exactly involves…

Lust: What attributes do you find most attractive in male and female characters?

I tend to like most characters in books. But- and this goes for both male and female characters- I love good strong (doesn’t have to be physically strong) characters that are sarcastic, witty, resourceful and that can kick some serious posterior. I wouldn’t mind some mysteriousness about them either; that always gets me to like them.

On the other hand, I loathe characters that do nothing, that are sappy and completely jobless throughout the whole book. 

Envy: What book would you most like to receive as a gift?

I’d love it if someone gifted me the whole Percy Jackson series, right from Percy Jackson and the Lightning Thief to the recent Heroes of Olympus: The Blood of Olympus.

I've read all the books, but I don’t own a single copy of the books, and I would really like to own all of them, so…yeah.

So that was it for this tag. I hoped you enjoyed it and I will have another tag up soon, so stay tuned for that. Goodbye!
