7 Deadly Literary Sins Blog Hop!

Thanks to Krystal for tagging me on this post! If you're reading this I tag you to write your answers on your blog!

Greed - What is your most inexpensive book?
 A romance book I got for free from a Kindle newsletter that I will probably never read called The Forever Year.

Wrath - Who's the author with whom you have a love/hate relationship with?
Sarah Dessen. I love a few of her books so much, but some just fall a bit too flat for me.

Gluttony - What book have you devoured over and over again with no shame?
 Flipped, Pride & Prejudice, Twilight. Please don't judge me.

Sloth - What book have you neglected reading due to laziness?
I have so many books that I've quit just because they just didn't do it for me: Panic, A Great and Terrible Beauty, The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer, Very Bad Things, Angelfall, Shadow of Night, and The Selection.

Pride - What books do you talk about most in order to sound like an intellectual reader?
Any Literary Classic. I'll name drop the author and a few fascinating facts I remember about them from my college days.

Lust - What attributes do you find attractive in a male or female character?
A female must be able to form her own opinion. She needs to be selfless, hopeful, and able to stand on her own. I like female characters who come into their own during the book. It's okay for them to be frail, afraid, or lost, but as long as they come out owning who they are, then that's when I stand and applaud them.

The male? Humble, passionate, and internally complex. Intelligent with a dash of humor. I have like a zero tolerance for arrogance unless it changes by the end. Some of my favorites are Mr. Darcy, Mr. Knightley, Ian O'Shea from The Host, and Bryce from Flipped.

Envy - What book would you like to receive most as a gift?
Since moving, I had to donate and give away a lot of my old books. I kind of miss having hard copies of the HP series, Pride & Prejudice, Emma, my old French Textbook, and a million others. However, I try to console myself by believing the gift is in the experience of reading the book and not owning it physically.


  1. Omg, Pride & Prejudice has to be one of my most favorite stories ever! Mr. Darcy is one of my book crushes. I still have my French textbook. I remember giving away boxes and boxes of books when I moved after college. I kept the ones that meant the most to me, but I'll still have the memory of the others forever. :)

    1. I know. Gosh I love Mr. Darcy. I've reread P&P so many times I've lost count. It will always be a favorite.

  2. Yes! to what you like in your female characters.
