Today on my blog I’m going to be doing the Seven Deadly Sins Book Tag post. I recently read Lashaans’ post over on Bookidote and thought it was awesome, so decided to share my own sinful book secrets.
Have a look at Lashaans’ sins!! 👇🏻 Aren’t we just utterly wicked readers?! 😈
Ok then, off I go…
What is the most expensive book you own?
Isn’t it absolutely gorgeous? It deserves all the faffing about for the pictures because it’s just so damn photogenic and expensive. I’m also ashamed to say I haven’t properly read it! The pages are very thin and I’m scared about wear and tear. I know. Don’t go there.
And the LEAST expensive?
You’re probably wondering why on earth I’ve pictured Mindhunter with my kitchen bin. Well, I found this book IN THE BIN at work!! Shocking behaviour! Who would do this?! Anyway, me being the Womble I am retrieved it and felt chuffed at my free find, and relieved that I saved this very interesting book from a life of landfill.
What book have you shamelessly devoured many times?
Good god, look at the state of that!! It stinks, it has mould and mildew, it’s 32 years old and I love and adore it.
What attributes do you find most attractive in your characters?
I had to think about this one for a while. But these are the kind of characters I have a tendency to gravitate towards in books:
FEARLESS WOMEN WITH PSYCHOPATHIC TENDENCIES. I just love a girl with a dangerous wickedness. A dry humoured, sarcastic crazy bitch. Am I weird?
Dear Sweetpea, you’ll always be my bestie book buddy. Even though you terrified me.
And while we’re on the subject of women who have lost the plot shall we say, have you seen Killing Eve?
I’m binge watching series 2 this week and I am so rooting for Villanelle. It was on BBC One a little while back and I’m so glad my sister recommended it to me. Its based on the books by Luke Jennings. All great TV comes originally from books it seems.
What books would you most like to receive as a gift?
I’m so sad that my household still doesn’t own a Tolkien boxset. What is wrong with us? Both myself and my man are LOTR fans. Yet we don’t own the books. I just don’t get it.
What book(s) do you bring up when you want to sound like an intellectual reader?
I struggled to answer this one because I don’t try and be something I’m not. However, what I am is a bit on the odd side and I like to surprise people.
I’ve been known to bring into conversation that I’ve read The Satanic Bible and it certainly raises some eyebrows. Satanism is very misunderstood. It really isn’t about draining chicken blood into a dish and dowsing yourself with it. It is in fact quite a liberating lifestyle/religion, for those who choose to follow it.
What book or series have you neglected out of sheer laziness?
I just cannot be arsed to read this at all. I watched 3 seasons of it and then the final season. That’ll do thanks.
What author do you have a love/hate relationship with?
Aww man… Mr King. I just can’t explain this one really. I’ve read 3 or 4 books by this incredible author. He IS incredible, there’s no getting away from it. But I get this daunting feeling when I read his stuff. I WANT to love it all. Read it all. But I get worried I’ll become one of those annoying ‘King is THE KING of horror’ readers, who just keep harping on about him. (Like I do about James Herbert. I know, I know 🙄 He is (was) the Master of Macabre, NOT King.) So I CAN explain it after all! I’m rather afraid I’m going to end up liking King more than Herbert. And do you know what? That just won’t do.
Well, there we have it. In conclusion, I’m such a sinner. What a thoroughly wonderful and enjoyable post that was to compile.
Huge thanks to Lashaan over at Bookidote.com for inspiring me 👍🏻😃
