The Seven Deadly Sins Tag

So as per on a Friday I do a tag. This week it is the seven deadly sins tag. I was tagged by Zhana from Confessions of an addict and she has a great blog so go check her out. So let's get started with the questions...


 1. Greed - What is your most inexpensive book? What is your most expensive book?

Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone: The Illustrated Edition (Harry Potter #1)How I Live NowI have a couple of inexpensive books as I have received books for 10p from a library book sale. One of them was a copy of How I Live Now by Meg Rosoff. The most expensive is probably my illustrated edition of Harry Potter which is meant to cost £30 although I know my Mum only paid £15 for it for my birthday.  






2. Wrath - What author do you have a love/hate relationship with?

The Assassin's Blade (Throne of Glass, #0.1-0.5)
Sarah J. Maas- I wouldn't say it is a love/hate relationship but it is a love/over-hyped relationship. I really liked the Assassin's Blade but I thought that Throne of Glass was just meh. I guess I will have to carry on with this series to see...










3. Gluttony - What book have you devoured over and over again with no shame?

The Book ThiefI am not a big rereader so I don't know if I have any answer to this. However I do really want to reread the Book Thief over and over so yeah...










4. Sloth - What book have you neglected reading due to laziness?

A Game of Thrones (A Song of Ice and Fire, #1)A Game of Thrones by George R.R. Martin- I wonder why... 












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

The Catcher in the RyeI don't really brag about the books that I read because I don't think I tend to read books that I make me sound like an intellectual reader. Should I do it right now because I am currently reading a Catcher In The Rye by J. D. Salinger. 









6. Lust - What attributes do you find attractive in male characters?

A good sense of humour... That is literally all I have got...

7. Envy - What book would you most like to receive as a gift?

I don't really get books as gifts but as longer as it is a book that I don't already have then it will be fine.

As per a good tag, I don't tend to tag people but if you want to do it feel free.

See you soon,

My Reading Tastes Are Changing

For the last couple of years, I feel like this has become a reoccurring blog post but I want to talk about it now because I think something is actually happening in my reading life. My reading tastes are changing. I've felt it for a while. I haven't really been drawn to YA titles that much anymore especially contemporary. Being busy in my time, I have been really selective in the books that I pick up so for me: the shorter, the better. And when picking up shorter books, the less likely they are to be YA. The more I am exposed to more books, the more I get to read books that I connect to Some of the books that I have picked up have really surprised me because of how much I ended up enjoying them. I think as I grow older, I am looking for different stories, different experiences and different perspectives. These don't just fit the YA mould. I also have been really into different genres like horror and the occasional thriller which have not read from before and I'm interes

Book Review: The Great Godden by Meg Rossoff

   * I am reviewing this book which I was gifted for free from the publisher in exchange for an honest review. All thoughts are my own. * Title: The Great Godden  Author: Meg Rossoff Publisher: Bloomsbury  Source: NetGalley ( Bookshop UK |  Hive |  Goodreads  |  Storygraph ) Book Summary: Everyone talks about falling in love like it’s the most miraculous, life-changing thing in the world. Something happens, they say, and you know … That’s what happened when I met Kit Godden. I looked into his eyes and I knew. Only everyone else knew too. Everyone else felt exactly the same way. This is the story of one family, one dreamy summer – the summer when everything changes. In a holiday house by the sea, our watchful narrator sees everything, including many things they shouldn’t, as their brother and sisters, parents and older cousins fill hot days with wine and games and planning a wedding. Enter two brothers – irresistible, charming, languidly sexy Kit and surly, silent Hugo. Suddenly there’s

The Bus Stop: A Short Story

It was a silent night at the bus stop. Everything was quiet, eerily quiet for a Friday night. Too quiet. With that the night was broken. A boy was walking towards the bus stop, with his friend who was talking loudly. Beer bottle in hand, it was clear that the pre-drinking that been in fall force. The boy’s friend was yelling that the boy had broken up with his girlfriend earlier that night. “Forget Alice man. Drown your sorrows in drink. Tonight, you will be a man. A free man.” He said, slurring his words as he spoke, walking towards the road rather than on the pavement. Being scared for his safety, the boy was unsuccessfully trying to get his friend out of the pavement. Attempting successfully, the boy said to his friend, “I think we need to get you home.” The boy himself was not drunk, he had so wanted to be, but he thought that he was going out for a film night with his girlfriend, but this didn’t happen, instead the breakup did. One text later and his girlfriend was gone.
