    Honestly when people comment, even just to say hey that book looks good.

    Relax, Read and Write.

TAG

Seven Deadly Sins Tag

This tag was originally done by BookishlyMalyza!  I was tagged by Bibi @ Bibi’s Book Blog.  Thank you, Bibi for tagging me. You should go check her out!

Greed: What is the most expensive book that you own? What is the least expensive book that you own?

Most expensive book has to be my special edition copy of  The Tales of Beedle the Bard. I tried looking up the price of this book and Amazon would not let me I purchased it back in 2008. The least expensive book I own has to be my copy of The Curious Case of the Werewolf That Wasn’t: (to say nothing of the Mummy That Was, and the Cat in the Jar) (The Parasol Protectorate). I only paid .99¢

Gluttony: What book or books have you shamelessly devoured many times?

It’s been a while since I have just picked up a book to re-read. My TBR pile makes me feel guilty about considering doing that 😉 Jane Eyre by Charlotte Brontë.

Sloth: What book or book series have you neglected out of sheer laziness?

The Wheel of Time.  There are just so many books…and they are so long… But I am breaking down and purchasing the first book.  Have read the first 5 and I have 2-5 as e-books and I find it so hard to pick up and stick with an ebook.

Pride: What book or books do you bring up when you want to sound like an intellectual reader?

I really don’t do this.  I was criticized when I was a teenager for some of the books that I liked to read. “It wasn’t normal” It is only in the past few years that I have found people to really talk to about books.

Lust: What attributes do you find most attractive in your characters?

I love characters that are strong and witty.

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

Grave Mercy by Robin LaFevers
Age of Myth by Michael J. Sullivan
The Asylum for Wayward Victorian Girls by Emilie Autumn
Iron Cast by Destiny Soria

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

The one that comes it to mind is Sarah J Maas.  I really like reading her books but there are some things that just drive me crazy.

If you want to do this please feel tagged.  And to those, I tag please do not feel obligated to do this if you do not want to.
