The tag posts in October always get a little more spooky or Halloweeny. This year, I’ve gone for something more sinful.
I spotted this tag on Paige’s Book Tube channel (it’s one of my favourites, so be sure you check her stuff out.) These seven questions will really get to the bottom of my reading habits.
GREED—What is your most inexpensive book? What is your most expensive book?
I’ve got so many 99p or 99c deals on my Kindle I wouldn’t know where to start listing them.
I believe one of my most expensive is likely one I bought while in Germany. English language books are sold at a huge mark up as they aren’t as popular here. My most recent purchase, Apples Never Fall by Liane Moriarty, set me back €18.99
WRATH—What author do you have a love/hate relationship with?
Unfortunately, Sophie Kinsella. I loved some of the first books I’ve read of hers. Since reading Confessions of a Shopaholic, however, it’s sadly been mainly downhill for me. I think it’s time to break up.
GLUTTONY—What book have you deliciously devoured over and over with no shame whatsoever?
The majority of the books in the Babysitter’s Club. I honestly don’t think I could count how many times I’ve read those.
SLOTH—What book have you neglected reading due to laziness?
I bought a Kindle copy of Hamnet at the end of 2020 and only started it recently. I need to go back and shake myself before now for not starting it sooner.
PRIDE—What book do you most talk about in order to sound like a very intellectual reader?
I don’t even know if I have a book with which I do this. It would probably be one by Matt Haig.
LUST— What book on your shelf has the prettiest cover?
Again, a shout out to Hamnet. But if we look at my physical shelf it’s hard to look past Malibu Rising by Taylor Jenkins Reid.
ENVY—What books would you most like to receive as a gift?
I have a full wish list of these. If someone wants to gift me the book about Schitt’s Creek, absolutely be my guest.
