Seven Deadly Sins Tag

The lovely Emily @ Books and Cleverness has tagged me in the 7 Deadly Sins Tag! We all know I’m partial to a tag or two (and a gif or five), so brace yourself…

Greed Tag Gif

 1. Greed – What is your most inexpensive book?

Inexpensive… Hmm… Physical book – I picked up 12 Years A Slave for £1 when I was doing my grocery shop, and no I haven’t read it yet… I pick up quite a few eBooks through Amazon for free or on offer. The cheapest I’ve paid for an eBook is 49p for The Love of My Life. I should really do an overview post of the deals I’ve found.

Wrath Gif

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

I don’t really have a love/hate relationship with authors as much as I do books and characters. The book that stands out to me as a love-to-hate-read at the minute is Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn. You can also check out the Top Ten Characters I Love to Hate here.

Gluttony Gif

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

I’m going to go with Harry Potter too, Emily. I have reread other books, but none as often as Harry Potter. It’s definitely the series I attempt to push on to most people, and I’m just a wee bit, slightly obsessed with it.

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

Umm… my entire To Be Read pile?? Nah, that’s not true, it’s just an Everest. I own all 7 released books in the Game of Thrones series and haven’t started them yet due to laziness. They’re huge. I might wait until Christmas time when I have two weeks off from work…

Proud gif

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

I don’t, really. I know a lot about my favourite books and can gush about those to anyone who’s listening, but I don’t really talk about books to sound intellectual, it’s difficult to sound intellectual when you’re in the middle of a geek-fit. I suppose I could chat about the classics (the ones I’ve read anyways), or heavier non-fiction texts. I read them occasionally.

lust gif

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

Hmm… There are “good” attributes I find attractive, and then there are the ones everyone seems to hate (Travis/Trent Maddox etc.). I like it when a character is smart and witty, when they banter and have sarcastic comebacks. I like it when they have layers (visualising the Shrek onion scene here), when tough guy characters can talk about their feelings and make you swoon. I like someone with a strong personality who can take charge every now and then. Should I just turn this into a personals ad??

Jealous Gif
“I don’t do jealous. Not anymore… Not with you.”

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

Any. I’m very not fussy 🙂 I do have a particular few books on my wishlist that it would be nice to receive as a gift, or ones by favourite authors, it’s always nice when someone remembers who your favourite authors are.

    Gif are so fun – love them! Thanks for the tag – I’ll have to think on this over the weekend and do a post. 🙂


  2. Ooh fun! Thanks for the tag–since my blog is on hiatus, maybe I’ll do it over on my bookish tumblr soon.
    I’m totally with you on the Harry Potter as the “gluttony” one! Those books can just be devoured over & over. I swear I like them even better each time I read.


  3. Woohoo! I was already thinking of how I would answer the questions and then I saw the nomination – how fun! 😀
    The gifs are great – I especially love Beast and the cat one. I use my kids as gofers so I don’t have to go up and down stairs ALL the time. 😛
    I’ve been considering a book deals post myself. I’d love to read yours.


  4. Thanks so much for tagging me, had a lot of fun doing this! We had a few similar answers, Game of Thrones is one I have put off because the books are soooo long! And HP is definitely the books that I have reread the most, just over and over again.

    HAHA I loved your lust answer, you already know where I stand on the Travis front. I did just pick up her other book – is it Beautiful Oblivion – for £1 as it was a brand new paperback and if I end up despising it as well then I can give it away.
