Seven Deadly Sins Questionnaire

I was tagged to do the Seven Deadly Sins Questionnaire (created by BookishlyMalyza) by Aylee from Recovering Potter Addict about two weeks ago and finally managed to find the time to whip up some answers! 

1. Greed - What is your most inexpensive book? What is your most expensive book?
I’ve never really been tempted by collector’s editions of books. So, most of the books I own are pretty similar in terms of their price range. My inexpensive books though are ones that I’ve bought from used bookstores.

2. Wrath - What author do you have a love/hate relationship with?
I’d have to go with Jennifer L. Armentrout. Although her books are entertaining and I love that she writes so fast, I usually have issues with them, whether it’s insta-love in Cursed or romantic leads (like Daemon) that are jerks.

3. Gluttony - What book have you devoured over and over with no shame?
It’s been a long time since I’ve reread an entire book, but my younger self would probably say, “A Wrinkle in Time, Anne of Green Gables, or The Song of the Lioness quartet.” 
Some of my favourite books growing up! The covers could be improved though ...
4. Sloth - What book have you neglected reading due to laziness?
So many! Besides not reading classics because of my need to stay on top of all the new books being released each year, I’d like to give both Melina Marchetta’s and John Green’s books a try at some point. 

5. Pride - What book do you talk about most in order to sound like an intellectual reader?
I don’t generally read nonfiction or classics, but I’m sure I’d sound a lot smarter if I read more of those …

6. Lust - What attributes do you find attractive in male or female characters?
In terms of my male characters, I prefer them either to be quick-witted like Gen from The Queen's Thief series or George from the Song of the Lioness quartet, or strong and capable characters who are utterly supportive of their heroines’ decisions. In the latter category, Dimitri from the Vampire Academy series and Gilbert from the Anne of Gables series come to mind.

With female characters, I want a combination of loyalty (both to themselves and others), determination, and brains. Hermione from Harry Potter, for example, is one of my female heroines. 

7. Envy - What book would you most like to receive as a gift?
Hmm, I refuse to stick to one answer for this because depending on my mood and what’s being released, it’s bound to change. But, I would like to get a physical copy – I have a Kindle version – of The Cavendish Home for Boys and Girls soon because looking at the illustrations on an ebook just isn’t the same. 


  1. I adored George from the Lioness Quartet series! I was also a huge fan of "A Wrinkle in Time". :)

  2. This is such a fun questionnaire, love it! I'm with you on John Green Z, I'm hoping to get to his books one day too! And more of Marchetta's, I've only read Saving Francesca (loved it though!) :)

  3. Yayy, love this! As much as I had fun writing up my own tag, I think I'm actually having more fun reading other people's, like yours.

    Jennifer L Armentrout - never read anything by her, but I have to imagine I would fall more on the hate side of the fence with her. Then again, I can appreciate an addictive read from time to time ^^

    Oh, you've read the Alanna quartet? That's cool, I really need to find time to read that classic myself.

    Yup, SO with you on the qualities in guys and girls!!

    And if you still want to read Jellicoe Road with me, I'm in! Let me know.

  4. hehe I was tagged by Aylee to do this one too, it was fun and I'm loving seeing everyone answers for it! :)

    I definitely read and reread the Anne of Green Gables books more than once but the first book is my favorite of the bunch ♥ Melina Marchette and John Green are both authors I have been very lazy in checking out too! I really want to change that soon though. Hermione is definitely a female character with traits I tend to love/admire!!
