The Seven Deadly Sins of Reading Tag

Thank you to The Happy Typewriter for tagging me! So let’s get started!



Defined as: An intense and selfish desire for something.

What is your most expensive book?

Had to take a long and hard look at my bookshelf before I could answer this one. I think my most expensive book is a leather bound Norwegian edition of The Lord of The Rings by J.R.R. Tolkien.



Defined as: Extreme anger.

 What author do you have a love/hate relationship with?

For this one I would have to go for Haruki Murakami. He writes beautifully, but there are some of his books that I really don’t like and there are others that I love to bits.



Defined as: Intense over-indulgence.

What book have you devoured over and over with no shame?

I’m not much of a re-reader I’m afraid, but I’m about to read The Dark Tower series again soon and I doubt that it will be the last time.



Defined as: a reluctance to work or make an effort.

What book have you neglected to read due to laziness?

The Game of Thrones by George R.R. Martin. and Harry Potter books 3-7 by J.K. Rowling (I know!! I’m so ashamed!!)  I’m going to.. Soon.. I promise!




Defined as: satisfaction derived from one’s own achievements or from qualities or possessions that are widely admired.

What book do you talk about most in order to sound like an intellectual reader?

I came up blank here! Sorry! Can’t remember ever talking about a book to sound like more of an intellectual reader.



Defined as: a strong sexual desire.

What attributes do you find attractive in male characters?

Humor, intelligence, quirkiness and charm!




Defined as: a feeling of discontented or resentful longing aroused by someone else’s possessions, qualities, or luck.

What book would you most like to receive as a gift?

I’d have to say the Harry Potter box set in hardback!
