Seven Deadly Sins | Book Tag
No matter what form of media they are depicted in, the Seven Deadly Sins will always be a fantastic concept. It even makes a great book tag, which is why I wanted to do this at some point for 'Tag Time', and that time is now upon us.
Like Zezee, whom I found this post from, I wanted to use specific graphics for this tag. That is only because when I think of the words Seven Deadly Sins, I think of the manga/anime (or Fullmetal Alchemist), which is also known as Nanatsu no Taizai.
I found this on Zezee with Books, but credit goes to the original creator. I also want to note that all images are credited to Nakaba Suzuki, the author of The Seven Deadly Sins.
Here we go!
GREED: WHAT IS THE MOST EXPENSIVE BOOK THAT YOU OWN? WHAT IS THE LEAST EXPENSIVE?
You may already know that I don't really buy books, not that I don't want to support authors, but with the amount that I end up reading, it makes more sense to use my library instead. If I were to though, I probably would be the kind of person who splurges because I prefer hardcovers for aesthetic reasons.
As for some books that I have bought, granted a long time ago, that were cheap, the only one that comes to mind is a Murakami book, which I got from a thrift store.
GLUTTONY: WHAT BOOK OR BOOKS HAVE YOU SHAMELESSLY DEVOURED MANY TIMES?
This question is a bit ill-timed seeing as I just did the 'reread tag', and I am going to have the exact same answer... If I reread something, it is going to be a webcomic like The Boy & The Wolf, which I keep rereading because it is ongoing and I want more of it.
SLOTH: WHAT BOOK OR BOOK SERIES HAVE YOU NEGLECTED OUT OF SHEER LAZINESS?
I wouldn't say out of sheer laziness, but there are some series I have been avoiding because it takes a lot of effort to read them. I am thinking specifically of the Gentleman Bastard, The Green Bone Saga, and The Poppy War series. While the first books were very well written, it was a struggle and a half to get through them for me, so I have been putting off continuing the series.
PRIDE: WHAT BOOK OR BOOKS DO YOU BRING UP WHEN YOU WANT TO SOUND LIKE AN INTELLECTUAL READER?
I tend to not gravitate toward books people would typically stereotype as intellectual. Basically, any classic or any book an English lit major would read I would not touch with a pole. If anything, I would just go with a nonfiction book if the subject comes up in a conversation.
LUST: WHAT ATTRIBUTES DO YOU FIND MOST ATTRACTIVE IN YOUR CHARACTERS?
If you know me, you know that I love characters that are OP. I don't care how unrealistic and idealistic it is, give me someone who can kick ass and can't be beaten, and I am a happy person. I also like quiet and mysterious characters and ones who are witty.
You could have the most interesting and expressive main character, but if there is a side character who you don't know much about, I am going to end up paying more attention to them. And I like witty characters if there is going to be a romance because bickering is the best.
ENVY: WHAT BOOKS WOULD YOU MOST LIKE TO RECEIVE AS A GIFT?
Again, I don't buy books and also don't ask for them as gifts since the font size of physical books strains my eyes a bit. If I were to pick a book though, I think I would go for something like The Priory of the Orange Tree. Not only would it just look nice, I would also be able to justify having it because it is a rather large standalone.
WRATH: WHAT AUTHOR DO YOU HAVE A LOVE/HATE RELATIONSHIP WITH?
I honestly don't know if there are authors out there whom I have this kind of relationship with. The only one that comes to mind would be Katherine Arden. I read The Bear and the Nightingale which I did not like, but I am also reading her MG series, Small Spaces, which I am having better luck with.
