The Seven Deadly Sins Tag

Good afternoon readers and happy Friday to you all. If you’ve been following me for the last month you will have seen that Friday is book-tag day and as it’s Friday, here we are. Today I am bringing you the seven deadly sins Book Tag which was created by the book-tuber (is that the word) BookishlyMalyza.

So, here it is. As always if you want to join in, post your own, have any comments or additions let me know in the comments below, and if you want to write your own tweet me and let me know @littlebookblog1

1) The Sin Greed —What is your most inexpensive book? What is your most expensive book?

I tend not to spend too much on books because I read so many self-published novels but I did have a bit of a haul when I bagged all the additional novels from J.K. Rowling but seeing as I never have any money it felt like an indulgence. Inexpensive book, I think my philosophy book on Descartes Meditations, it cost me just less than a pound.

The Sin Wrath—What author do you have a love/hate relationship with?

Hmmm, I think Hilary Mansell. I raved about and adored ‘An Experiment in Love,’ but ‘Wolfhall,’ not so much. I need to go back and attempt it again but for now, it’s a total love, hate, relationship.

The Sin Gluttony—What book have you deliciously devoured over and over with no shame whatsoever?

The Chocolate Run, by Dorothy Koomson. It is, just, brilliant and I adore it as a book

The Sin Sloth—What book have you neglected reading due to laziness?

There are so many that could be used for this sin, but I think The Messenger by Marcus Zusak. I’ve been meaning to read more from this sublime author but have so far put it off. However I need to read more and just get round to it. C’mon Lizzy.

The Sin Pride—What book do you most talk about in order to sound like a very intellectual reader?

I think 1984 by Orwell. Before I read it I was always questioned as to whether I had read it and on saying no I always got the same slightly shocked face, so I think now that I’ve read it definitely 1984.

The Sin Lust—What attributes do you find most attractive in male or female characters?

I like characters that are confident in themselves but also have a sense of humour without being cocky or ignorant. That may be a little too much to ask but in a male character that’s what I’m looking for – oh and blue eyes are a bonus.

The Sin Envy—What books would you most like to receive as a gift?

I think a first edition of the Great Gatsby would be such a touching gift and would honestly make me so happy I think it would make me a little tearful. This would be a perfect present for me.

So a little sinful tag from mylittlebookblog. As always pop your comments below and let me know your own sinful answers!

    Hm… I think I’ll leave you the Descartes! As for Wolf Hall – I loved it and Bring Out the Bodies. The tip I got before attempting it, and one I’ll pass on for what it’s worth – give it AT LEAST 3 chapters to get used to the present sense/compressed pov. By then you should have become acclimatised… Although I do know it to be a Marmite book – many reading friends and students loathe it as much as I love it.
