I found this tag at ontheothersideofreality her blog and had never seen it before. I really liked all the questions and wanted to answer them for myself.
Question of the day:
What book would you like to own most?
Greed: What are your most expensive and inexpensive books?
My most expensive book is my copy of The World Of Ice And Fire by George R R Martin. I don’t know if that one really counts, because I got it as a Christmas present from my parents, but it was €55. The cheapest book I own is The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern. I got that for €1 at a yard sale.
Sloth: What book have you neglected reading due to laziness?
Dragonfly in Amber by Diana Gabaldon. I’m about…60 pages (I think) in and I just kind of stopped reading. I love the way these books are written and I also love the story, but they take me so long to read and are really slow. I’m definitely continuing this, probably this summer.
Wrath: Who is an author you have a love/hate relationship with?
I’m gonna go with Veronica Roth for this one. I LOVED Divergent, thought Insurgent was quite alright and highly disliked Allegiant. When Carve The Mark came out this year I had hopes for her to redeem herself, but I didn’t really like it. I felt like the story had so much potential, but the story really dragged on.
Gluttony: What book have you devoured over and over with no shame?
I’m gonna go for a series for this one: The A Court Of Thorns And Roses trilogy. I read the first book 3 times and the second one 4 times. The final book came out less than two weeks ago and I’m already reading that for the second time as well. I just really love this trilogy. Sometimes I even sit down on my bed and reread all my favorite little scenes.
Lust: What traits do you find attractive in fictional characters?
I really like it when a character is driven by something. They have a goal and will do anything to achieve that. For whatever reason I also fall for the bad guys in stories too. The Darkling in the Grisha trilogy, for example, hot damn. I also really love Loki, he’s so evil and sexy and omg.
Pride: What book do you talk about in order to sound like an intelligent reader?
I don’t really have one for this, but if I have to pick, I think I’d go for the Song Of Ice And Fire books by George R R Martin. These books are known to be really long and complicated and I read the first three of them. Only I do really love these books and I read them because I wanted to, not to be interesting.
Envy: What book would you like to receive as a gift?
I would love to have the Barnes and Noble leather-bound classic of Grimm’s complete fairy tales. It’s a beautiful book and when I was little I always loved Grimm’s fairy tales.
