The Seven Deadly Sins Tag

Zezee @ Zezee with Books recommended this tag to me and I not only decided to do it but also transfer over the pictures she used. They’re awesome!

Original Creator: Bookish Malyza (original video seems to have been made private)

Cat Illustration artist: MarijaTiurina (in collaboration with NeonMob)

GREED: WHAT IS THE MOST EXPENSIVE BOOK THAT YOU OWN? WHAT IS THE LEAST EXPENSIVE BOOK THAT YOU OWN?

Most expensive: Probably, The Quite Nice and Fairly Accurate Good Omens Scriptbook. Don’t regret the money I spent in the slightest!

Least expensive: Do books I got for free count? If so, it’ll be Elantris. I got it from my local village shop who runs a ‘library’ where anyone can pick up and keep a book for free.


GLUTTONY: WHAT BOOK OR BOOKS HAVE YOU SHAMELESSLY DEVOURED MANY TIMES?

Pre-June 2020, I’d say the Harry Potter series. In second place is Jane Eyre. I cannot count the number of times I have binged that audiobook and I’ve studied it at school and uni once or twice.

SLOTH: WHAT BOOK OR BOOK SERIES HAVE YOU NEGLECTED OUT OF SHEER LAZINESS?

Probably Les Miserables. I’ve got the audiobook and I could start it any time but it’s sixty hours long and I really did not love the last Victor Hugo book I read (it was The Hunchback of Notre Dame). I think I’ll stick with the musical.

PRIDE: WHAT BOOK OR BOOKS DO YOU BRING UP WHEN YOU WANT TO SOUND LIKE AN INTELLECTUAL READER?

Mentioning Anna Karenina to someone in the book club made them think I was into big literary heavyweights. While I’m into heavyweights, I’m not necessarily a literary person. So, I guess this made me look more of an intellectual reader than I actually was.

LUST: WHAT ATTRIBUTES DO YOU FIND MOST ATTRACTIVE IN YOUR CHARACTERS?

Determination, strong principles and enough intelligence to not only win but to win creatively. Kind of like a mix between Liz from You Should See Me In A Crown, Lily from Last Night at the Telegraph Club and Linus Baker from The House in the Cerulean Sea. And, I swear the alliteration on the names was purely coincedental.


ENVY: WHAT BOOKS WOULD YOU MOST LIKE TO RECEIVE AS A GIFT?

The collector’s editions of the Six of Crows duology would be very high on my list. Just look at those covers!

WRATH: WHAT AUTHOR DO YOU HAVE A LOVE/HATE RELATIONSHIP WITH?

Probably Charles Dickens. Yes, I know he wrote lots of classics, had a big impact on literature and I think A Christmas Carol is okay but I just can’t get into his writing whenever I try one of his books. I can’t get over how badly he treated the women in his life either.

I tag anyone who needs to confess their sins!

I hope to see you again very soon.
