Seven Deadly Sins Tag

Happy Friday everyone! I found this little bookish tag/meme on littleonionwrites‘ blog earlier this week and thought it looked like fun, so here we are!


Greed – What is your most expensive book?
I’m honestly not sure!  It’s probably one of the ones in my coffee table book collection though, all those glossy pages can get a little pricey (especially the art books from sci-fi films, which are my favorite).  It’s very possible that the answer to this question will be Big Damn Sin City [x] in the near future though, because I need it.

Wrath – What author do you have a love/hate relationship with? 
George R.R. Martin.  Do I even need to explain?

Gluttony What book have you devoured over and over again with no shame?
All of Tamora Pierce’s Tortall books, especially the Protector of the Small series, they are my absolute favorite.  Where are my fellow Tammy fans?  I know you’re out there!

Sloth – What book have you neglected reading due to laziness? 
I don’t think there are any that I’ve yet to read because of laziness, but I have been putting off reading Tolkien’s posthumous publications because I just know I’ll get caught up in them and I wouldn’t get anything else read for ages – I’ve read The Lord of the Rings three or four times and every single time I get completely drawn in to Middle Earth and I can’t bring myself to read anything else for a while after.

Pride – What book do you talk about to sound like an intellectual reader? 
I’m not sure it counts as intellectual per se, but I could probably have discussions for days about the cultural significance of science fiction throughout the genre’s history (how it reflects the culture it was born out of, the contemporary social issues it attempts to address, what it all means). Intellectual? Maybe. Super geeky? Definitely.

Lust – Which attributes do you find attractive in male or female characters? 
I always end up liking the troubled bad-boys the most.  Every. Single. Time.  In books where that isn’t an option I’m usually a fan of the quiet ones, the boys that end up more defined by their actions than the actual dialogue they have.

Envy – What book would you most like to receive as a gift? 
Definitely Stephen King’s The Colorado Kid [x], I’ve been trying to hunt down a copy for a while now and haven’t had any luck in any of the used bookstores that I frequent.

I’d love to hear what you have to say about the seven deadly sins so I’m tagging ALL OF YOU, lovely readers!  Leave me a link in the comments if you decide to post your answers so I can stop by your blog and check them out!
