Hello! A tag today! I was tagged by Zezee! (Thanks friend :”D)
Greed: What are the most expensive and least expensive books you own?
I don’t really have one for ‘least expensive’. Probably one of the many I purchased during this library sale or this library sale, where the books were ‘fill a bag for five bucks’. And those are just the two I’ve gone to while I’ve had this blog. There are so many more. I’m a connoisseur of basement book sales, hawhaw.
The most expensive… would have to be my organic chemistry textbook. 😛 It cost $300 and I had to buy it through the school because it came with that damn homework access code that I needed. Buying a used copy and a homework code separately would have cost more than just buying the new package. Dammit. And people wonder why millennials are broke.
Gluttony: What book have you shamelessly devoured many times?
Before I started my book blog, I was one of those people who just read a handful of books over and over (which is why I’m grateful for the online book community – it’s allowed me to spread my horizons big time, man). I’m just gonna list a few of the books I’ve read… goodness I can’t even count how many times:
Sloth: What book series have you neglected out of sheer laziness?
I wouldn’t even say it’s a series, but a single book: The Forgotten Realms campaign setting by Ed Sheerwood. And it’s not any fault of the book. I’ve been ‘currently reading’ it for months now. Haven’t actually touched in lately. I’ve decided recently that I want to try my hand at DMing though, so this book will hopefully get more use soon. I hope.
Pride: What book or books do you bring up when you want to sound like an intellectual reader?
Oh gosh, you’re giving me flashbacks of my 17-year-old self. I was such a snob. I really try to make a point not to do this anymore, haha. I did a lot of it when I was younger and looking back now (especially with the ‘this day in history’ posts on facebook so I can actually see the shit I posted) I really really hope I don’t still give off that impression. Yeesh, man.
Case in point: When I was 18, I wrote a paper for my college freshmen English class titled something like ‘People who buy books but don’t actually read them aren’t real readers’ and went into it – full ‘prententious 18-year-old that read a classic once’ mode. Gag. Forgive me.
Lust: What attributes do you find most attractive in your characters?
Can we just take a second to point out the the cat for this picture is reading a ‘Playcat’ magazine and drooling?
For characters, I find myself gravitating towards the cold, calculating characters. The Darkling from Shadow and Bone, Sesshomaru from Inuyasha, The Dragon from Uprooted… which is honestly the opposite of what I like in a real flesh-and-blood person. In real life, I like the warm fuzzy people. Weird. xD
Envy: What books would you most like to receive as a gift?
Any of the collector’s editions of books that I’m too cheap to buy myself, hawhaw. I know there’s some really nice versions of Harry Potter, of A Song of Ice and Fire.… any of those, really. They’re all so lovely. *foam*
Wrath: What author do you have a love/hate relationship with?
Oh, definitely Sarah J Maas. I like her books but I hate them. But I love them. But they’re awful. But they’re sooo gooood. But uck. But waah ❤
Pawsomeness: What’s the best book you’ve read so far this year?
Most definitely Brent Weeks’ Lightbringer series. I’m two-and-a-half books deep at this point and I love it.
And that’s it! Happy reading. :”D
