The Seven Deadly Sins
We were tagged by the amazing Moonrise Book Blog! Thanks Moonrise!
We are going to tag:
1. What is your most expensive book?
C – The White Stripes – Under the Great White Northern Lights – Well worth the cost of bringing it into the country!
K – Probably the library book I lost that ended up costing me a freakin fortune. I can’t even remember what it was called.
2. What author do you have a love/hate relationship with?
C – Ugh, Charlaine Harris and her series The Southern Vampire Mysteries. Loved it at the start and hated it by the end! WHY!!!
K – Oh, mine is CH too. I have never felt so crushed by a book series. I kept deluding myself about the direction it was taking.
3. What book have you devoured over and over again with no shame?
C – Not just one book! A whole series! The Jane True series by Nicole Peeler. I’ve re-read those books a couple of times and will totally re-read again! (Obsessed)
K – Loved Jane True as well. Also, Lucy Sullivan is Getting Married by Marian Keyes. I love that book so hard.
4. Which book have you neglected reading due to laziness?
C – Hmmm… If I’m not reading a book it’s not because of laziness, it’s because I have issues with Amazon’s 1-click and keep buying more that I ‘MUST’ read so others just keep getting shuffled down! It’s an actual life problem.
K – Haha! My TBR folder of purchased books on my Kindle has over fifty books in it. I have an itchy 1-click finger. But I’d say the main one would be The Bronze Horseman by Paullina Simons.
5. What book do you most talk about in order to sound like an intellectual reader?
C – Haha! If any of you could eavesdrop into our convos here at OUaBB you would be very entertained. We don’t try to sound like anything that we aren’t and I really believe that all books have their place in the world. I love a bit of chick-lit fluff just as much as I love my heavier reads. It all depends on my mood and I will happily discuss any book with anyone and not care how intellectual I sound or don’t sound!
K – Yea I agree. I can’t say anything really stands out but I did have a boyfriend once who wouldn’t shut up about how amazing The Da Vinci Code was, so I read it in order to impress him. I was bored the whole time. That really should have been a sign of things to come…
6. What attributes do you find attractive in a male or female character?
C – Good question! Female = Feisty, hilarious, inappropriate, tough, loyal and of course general awesomeness is a bonus! Male = Swoon-worthy. That is all.
K – Female – Sassy, funny, bad-ass…I really like strong female characters. Male – Strong, smokin’ hot, someone who encourages the female lead instead of expecting her to act meek and mild. I don’t mind protectiveness but I like it more when they work as a team. Example – Barrons & Mac from the Fever Series.
7. What book would you most like to receive as a gift?
C – I wish my Opa (Grandfather) would write his life story and gift it to me. That book to me, would be priceless.
K – Oh no. My answer’s going to sound shallow now. But…uh…I’d really love to have the full set of Harry Potter books in hardcover. That would be stupendous.
Thanks so much again to Moonrise Book Blog!! We loved this!
