The 7 Deadly Sins of Reading

So I was recently stalking checking out a fellow bloggers website Ramblings of a Book Junkie. She did The 7 Deadly Sins of Reading and I loved it so much I decided to try it myself. So here it goes:

GREED What is your most expensive book? What is your least expensive book?
A: My most expensive book is Harry Potter and The Deathly Hollows by JK Rowling. I bought it at Barnes and Noble. What can I say? I was one of the eager readers dying to get my hands on it.
My least expensive books are free and on my Kindle App. I happen to constantly browse Kindle’s Free Books Top 100.

WRATH—What author do you have a love/hate relationship with?
A: Sadly and it pains me to admit: Elle Casey. I love her books. I cannot stress that enough. I tend to be an obsessive reader and happen to see that occur most when I read her work. Which believe me, says something. I didn’t know it was possible to be more obsessive than I already am. Sadly, I am also a passionate reader and I regret to say that she was on the other end of one of my most passionate and angry reviews. Not my proudest moment as a reviewer. However, I can’t take back my angry words….

GLUTTONY—What book have you deliciously devoured over and over with no shame whatsoever?
A: The Harry Potter series. They tend to be my go to books. When I have nothing to read and am riddled by boredom I find myself reading the series.

SLOTH—What book have you neglected reading due to laziness?
A: Dracula by Bram Stoker. I always have the intention of reading it but as a master procrastinator it is always put on the back burner.

PRIDE—What book do you most talk about in order to sound like a very intellectual reader?
A: Native Son by Richard Wright. I read this book in high school- on my own. It felt like the longest book in the world at the time. I was proud of myself for finishing it and is also the book that started the habit of me finishing books I start.

LUST—What attributes do you find most attractive in male or female characters?
A: In a female it is strength. I love reading books that feature kick-your-ass type heroines that are physically strong. But the make it or brake it for me is if the female has inner strength.
When it comes to guys, I tend to fall (book wise) for a guy who loves or wants and has trouble expressing himself. I love when they have trouble expressing themselves but always manage to show their feelings. Actions speak louder than words, right?

ENVY—What books would you most like to receive as a gift?
A: The Kelley Armstrong Darkest Powers series. I really loved it and haven’t gotten the time to purchase them yet. (This is one of the many examples of my procrastinations.)

  1. Great post! Love the word ‘stalker’ crossed out. Made me laugh so loud my hubby called out from the kitchen to see what I was laughing at! My most expensive book was a first edition about the life of Margaret Olley, I say ‘was’ because I loaned it to my mother and she doesn’t know where it is now!

    • I’m so very happy you enjoyed my post Dianne! You have made my day! And as it turns out, I hate loaning out books. They are either never returned or they are given back full of grease and other food stains. I hate having something I take so much effort to take care of be ruined…
