The Seven Deadly Sins of Reading Tag




The lovely Anna at Books, Quotes & Dimples tagged to do this tag which was created by BookishlyMalyza. There are seven questions related to the deadly sins and I had so much fun doing it so thank you so much Anna for tagging me ;)

If you want to know my answers, keep reading!




  • Greed – What is your most inexpensive book? What is your most expensive?

My most inexpensive book is actually a novella, Daimon by J. L. Armentrout. It cost me one cent. I’m not even kidding. And my most expensive book has to be the most beautiful books of my collection: The Fairy Tales of the Brothers Grimm. It is huge and has a velvety touch. Also, the illustrations are to die for. I paid 25 Euros.

           

  • Wrath – What author do you have a love/hate relationship with?

To be honest it has to be George R. R. Martin. Why? You may ask… well, I freaking adore his books, I think he is brilliant but he is ruthless when it comes to killing characters and that breaks my heart every time. I love reading his books because I know is not gonna be a happy ending and that everybody is in peril but at the same time I hate reading the death of the characters I love… So, if you are planning on reading any of his books please, don’t get emotionally attached to any of the characters, which is an impossible mission.

  • Gluttony – What book have you devoured over and over with no shame?

My answer will be the same as Anna’s: HARRY FREAKING POTTER! I’ve re-read all the books like 5 or 6 times (doing a marathon that is) but I’ve re-read some of them separately more times. The first book has been read more than 10 times…. AND I FEEL NO SHAME ABOUT IT. When it comes to Harry Potter I’m at home. 



  •  Sloth – What book have you neglected reading due to laziness?

It has to be The Mistborn trilogy by Brandon Sanderson. I want to read this trilogy but it's kind of intimidating…


  • Pride – What book do you talk about most in order to sound like an intellectual reader?

Any classics? I don’t know… I don’t feel like if you’ve read a classic is because you are an intellectual reader… It is sad people see it like that, in my opinion. You read whatever you want to read and not all classics are, you know, gold… I think I’m starting to ramble here so, yeah, basically what I want to say is that a book does not make an intellectual reader, the reader makes himself/herself an intellectual individual not matter what he/she reads. If that makes any sense.

  • Lust – What attributes do you find attractive in male or female characters?

When it comes to male characters I’m just gonna say: WILL HERONDALE. You can draw your own conclusions from that. LOL. 
And about female characters, I just ask of them to be strong and independent and intelligent. I’m really tired of the entire damsel in distress who needs a knight in shining armour thing. 

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

Not a book, but a box set containing the new gorgeous UK hardback editions of Harry Potter.


Anna, thank you again for tagging me. It was so much fun! And I’m also gonna tag some people:

Vintage Classics: Brontë Series

Maybe you don’t know this about me but I collect different edition of Jane Eyre and when I learnt that Vintage was releasing the new Brontë series I just couldn’t say no. 

The 80th Anniversary Edition of Rebecca by Daphne Du Maurier

I received this beautiful edition in the mail yesterday and I just couldn't not share it here. I read Rebecca last year and despite not writing a full review of it here on the blog, it became one of my all time favourites. Still today there are moments when I find myself thinking about the story and the characters. Du Maurier brings to life and incredible story and memorable characters and it's one of those books I'll recommend to anyone.

Reading Diary | February Books | 2018

Feb, 1st - 15:15. Finished the second book in the first volume of the Riyria Revelations and I was pleasantly surprised. I still think the world building is the weakest thing about the story because it's not greatly developed but the story is well-written and entertaining. I'm planning on continuing reading the series because now I'm intrigued enough to want to know how everything will unfold. Feb, 7th - 10:33.  I'm finally prepared to go and see the movie Call Me By Your Name because I just finished reading the novel. I enjoyed it quite a bit. It is a celebration of love and an exploration of sex and identity. It's quite explicit though so if you feel uncomfortable with that keep it in mind if you're planning on reading it. My full review of the book is HERE (I also talk a little bit about the movie).
