1. Greed - What is your most inexpensive book ? What is your most expensive book ?
I have plenty inexpensive books - lots of freebies, too many even. My most expensive e-book... Probably Jennifer Armentrout's series Lux, which I bought entirely full price. My most expensive paper edition ? A wonderful book on trees :)
2. Wrath - What author do you have a love/hate relationship with ?
There is no such author yet. But again, I would think about Jennifer Armentrout. I really adore her YA books, a lot lot less her NA books that she writes as J. Lynn. Her Gamble brothers series really disappointed me, I expected more of her. The only novella of that series I loved was Tempting the bodyguard, with the character of Alana that everybody absolutely hated but was my personal favorite !
3. Gluttony - What book have you devoured over and over with no shame ?
Easy : Jane Eyre by Charlotte Brontë ! When I have a library, I want a poster of the Brontë sisters and anyway, I want to be buried with that book. I must have read it at least 8 times over the years... I have loved the Brontë's universe since I was a teenager, love the passion, the wild land, the weird characters, their torment as a family. But my favorite has always been Jane Eyre - I can totally relate to her principles, her strong will, her wild nature under the ice, her passion, I love the imagination, her strange paintings, her walks in the moors. This book is pure passion and fire, it makes me vibrate !
4. Sloth - What book have you neglected reading due to laziness ?
Let's be honest : since I started reviewing books, the more books I read, the better it is ! So when I have the choice between a novella and a novel... I would choose the shorter one (*hangs head in shame*). Or I'm lazy about some of the oldest books I have bought, there are so many releases each year/month/week, the more recent just pop at the top of my list and I forget about the others or why I bought them.
5. Pride - What book do you talk about most in order to sound like an intellectual reader ?
Well, I honestly don't care what people think of me as long as my conscience's clear. But I've read a lot of sociology, political, economical books, I've read a lot of classical literature, "serious" contemporary literature and if I really had in mind to look like an intellectual, I would chose the great French sociologist Pierre Bourdieu, I guess.
6. Lust - What attributes do you find attractive in male or female characters ?
I like my heroins strong but not hard, definitely no whiny-too-stupid-to-live girls. I like them independant, not waiting on a man to make decisions or buy them clothes or take them to foreign country while sipping champagne in a private jet. No m'am, I want them to give as much as they get in every category.
As to the heroes, I like them strong but not overbearing, with a sense of humor and a heart of gold, no brooding allowed. I love the guys depicted by Marie Harte, Tawna Fenske, for example. If they have a big mouth, it's all the better - snark, banter, sarcasm, but most of all I love dirty talkers ! If I had the choice between Angel and Spike ? Stefan and Damon ? Spike and Damon would be total winners !
7. Envy - What book would you most like to receive as a gift ?
Emmm... None especially. But a gift card that would allow me to order whichever book I choose, that would be nice !
Now, since I'm going on hiatus, I won't tag anyone but if you want to participate, feel free !
Thanks again for the fun, Lola :)
