I was tagged by Rita from View From My Home to do this Seven Deadly Sins confessional. Of course there is nothing sinful about books or reading, no judgement here, so if you’d like to do this too, consider yourself tagged!
What is your most expensive book?
I don’t spend a lot of money on individual books. I’m an unashamed master bargain hunter. I scour amazon daily deals every morning, watch for sales in my local book shop and regularly haunt charity shops for bargains. So this is a hard one for me, I can’t think of any expensive book that I’ve purchased. Pass!
What author do you have a love/hate relationship with?
Hmmmhh, I’m not doing very good with this. I can’t think of any. There is no one that I love and also hate. So instead I’ll tell you about an author I love , the amazing Tana French and what I hate is how long she takes between books. Years! *heavy sigh*
What book have you devoured over and over again with no shame?
So many! I’m an avid re-reader (more so pre-blog but I’m trying to make more time for this). I have read the entire Harry Potter series umpteen times and have every intention of reading it umpteen more. What is this shame you talk of?
Which book have you neglected reading due to laziness?
The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo. I know I’d probably love it but every time I try to read it, I get bogged down in the first few pages, there is so much to remember and I just give up. Some day!
What book do you most talk about in order to sound like an intellectual reader?
50 Shades of Gray! *snorts* Nope, I never talk about books to sound intellectual. I just read what I want, when I want and couldn’t care less about being considered intellectual. Plus I’d rather sound passionate about my book choices then impress someone with a so-called high brow book.
What attributes do you find attractive in a male or female character?
When it comes to female characters, I like them brave, snarky and loyal. And when it comes to male characters, I’m a sucker for a bad boy as long as it doesn’t run too deep. Surface level bad with the heart of a puppy! And I love when characters like to read, that’s an instant connection for me.
What book would you most like to receive as a gift?
I’m not fussy! Anything off my wish list. But I do think half the fun of books is the choosing of them so that’s why gift tokens are my preferred pressie. At least it makes me easy to buy for as friends and family know the quickest way to my heart is with a book token.
