Woohoo, week three on The Summer Blogger Promo Tour hosted by The Book Bratz! This weeks post will be all about Ink on the Shelf (:
Ink on the Shelf is yet another beautiful blog ran by Jennifer Louise. Jen an awesome 23 year old Australian living in Canada, two places that I would love to visit one day! She is a qualified teacher and journalist, but she’s hoping to become a published author within two years so keep that in mind when you’re browsing the bestseller shelf at Barnes and Noble in a couple of years. I’m sure you’ll find her book sitting there! Jen’s blog has top ten Tuesdays, reviews, and awesome giveaways so be sure to check it out and subscribe by email!
For her post we decided to do The 7 Deadly Sins Tag that I found on YouTube. It was so much fun reading what Jen answered and hope you guys enjoy the tag as well!
GREED—What is your most inexpensive book? What is your most expensive book?
I often don’t keep track….once I spent 200 dollars on books in one trip to the bookstore. From memory though, the most expensive novel I’ve bought was around 30 dollars. The cheapest, probably 2 dollars if we aren’t counting e-books or netgalley.
WRATH—What author do you have a love/hate relationship with?
I used to love the Twilight series…..uh, when it first came out and I was sixteen. I have a lot of respect for Stephanie Meyer, and the enterprise she has created. I can no longer stand to read her books though. The voice, the characters, the plot and the pacing. Everything irritates me. Good on her for getting teenage girls to read though.
GLUTTONY—What book have you deliciously devoured over and over with no shame whatsoever?
That would have to be the Stephanie Plum series by Janet Evanovich. Those are my happy books, which I can breeze through and take my mind off things. Funnily enough, it fits in with the theme well. She talks a lot about food (the bad, good kinds) and it always makes me hungry.
SLOTH—What book have you neglected reading due to laziness?
Not due to laziness. I’ve neglected a lot of books due to hating the main characters, or finding it difficult to get through. The most recent is Hexed by Michelle Krys. Not my cup of tea.
PRIDE—What book do you most talk about in order to sound like a very intellectual reader?
Hmmmm….I’ve read Tolstoy, so that would be Anna Karenina. To be fair though, it’s not very difficult to read or truly high brow fiction. That, or Shakespeare. I’ve studied and read a lot of Shakespeare.
LUST—What attributes do you find most attractive in male or female characters?
An ability to be strong, push through the obstacles they are facing and learn new things about themselves. I also like when a character is unique and set apart from other characters in their genre. Not being whiny and annoying also helps.
ENVY—What books would you most like to receive as a gift?
My birthday is actually coming up….I would love to get a box set of Melissa De La Cruz’s Witches of East End with the original covers. I try to avoid cover art that ties in to movies or television shows.
