Seven Deadly Sins of Reading

The idea for this post comes from Harley Bear Book Blog. I happened to see it a few days ago and I decided to do my own version of this. Same setup, just different answers. The idea of The Seven Deadly Sins seemed like an awesome idea so I jumped on this.Hope you guys enjoy it. Be sure to let me know if you did one as well or if you just wanted to comment on my answers.

GREED – What is your most inexpensive book? What is your most expensive book?         ~My most inexpensive book that I bought is probably one of my many Kindle freebies. My most expensive book would probably be the last Harry Potter book I bought. I got it at midnight and it was PRICEY!

WRATH – What author do you have a love/hate relationship with? 
~Currently,it’s Jodi Picoult. I absolutely adore her but the last few books have not been the best. So now I’m disappointed and frustrated with her.

GLUTTONY – What book have you deliciously devoured over and over with no shame whatsoever
~The Harry Potter series and The Lord of the Rings trilogy.

SLOTH – What book have you neglected reading due to laziness?
~ The Breathless Trilogy by Maya Banks.

PRIDE – What book do you most talk about in order to sound like a very intellectual reader?
~Either Anna Karenina or  the book version of Les Miserables.

LUST – What attributes do you find most attractive in male or female characters?
~For female characters,they have to be kind, strong and overall very likeable. I really don’t like the female characters who base their whole existence on whether or not they have a boyfriend. For male characters,they have to be attractive, and not just physically attractive. They have to be decent human beings. I will not tolerate male characters who demean female characters in any way.  

ENVY – What books would you most like to receive as a gift?
~Pretty much any book.

Friday Musings #5

Okay so I was booked on Tuesday so I couldn’t do my Top Ten Things That Make Me Shun A Book like so many others in the blogging community. I needed a topic for today SO I decided to do my Top Ten Things That Make Me Shun A Book today. Hope you enjoy!

This is my number one thing. I am an atheist so it would make no sense for me to read a book about a God that I don’t believe in. I am also not religious at all so anything that so much as HINTS at being religious in any capacity does not get a home on my bookshelf.
This one’s easy. I find politics to be boring and I will not read a book that so much as HINTS at it.
First of all I am not into that cheesy & corny crap. There is no such thing as insta love. There is such a thing as insta-lust and I wish people would call it that rather than calling it love. You cannot love someone you don’t know and may have never met.
~Bad Author Behavior~
If I hear a story about an author behaving badly to either another author or a blogger like myself,I will NOT pick up their book.To me it would be like rewarding them for behaving badly. No just no.
~Using Sex As The Only Plot Point~
If I have to hear someone say “Well Sex Sells” one more time, I may put my fist through a wall. Yes sex does amp up the book sales but for me if there is nothing else to the story I am going to throw it as far away from my body as possible.Even erotica has to have SOME sort of plot in order for me to read it. If it doesn’t,then I don’t read it. Simple as that.

If someone could just explain to me WHAT it is,I’d be greatful. As it is,I don’t get it and don’t understand the appeal.
~Aliens/Zombies/Werewolves & Vampires~
I threw all four of these together because I just don’t get the appeal of any of them. I like a good SciFi book as much as the next person but Aliens? No thank you. I think I’ve seen enough Vampire crap to last me a lifetime. Zombies,um no thank you. There was only one series that I loved a werewolf character and if you are as much of a geek as I am,then you’ll know what I’m talking about.
Sometimes these stories are done beautifully and they tell the tale of a battered woman escaping from a violent man. But I rarely read them and that’s because usually we are forced to read about the abuse in graphic detail. I will not be okay with that. It’s like abuse is being glorified which makes me sick.
This is something I don’t accept in my real life.Why should my reading choices be any different.It’s rude,disrespectful and like abuse,it glorifies the act.
~Historical Books~
I hated history in high school,hated it in college so why would I want to read anything with a historical theme? Answer is,I wouldn’t. Historical books of any kind bore the heck outta me and you won’t catch me reading them.Ever.
