The Seven Deadly Sins Tag

--What is your most expensive and inexpensive books?--
Expensive~ This was hard because I don't want to count books that were gifted to me and I don't like buy books over 25 dollars. But I would have to say The Lourve All the Paintings by Erich Lessing & Wincent Pomarede. It was on sale the time I got it, so I only paid 50 dollars for it. 

Inexpensive~ Probably The Giver by Lois Lowry. I got it for 50 cents at a library sale. 

 --What author do you have a love/hate relationship with?--
Brandon Sanderson. 
He is one of my all time favorite authors, but he has this way of making you fall in love with characters and then killing them, which rips out my heart! Okay, maybe a little bit of exaggerating but it still really hurts when the characters die.   

--What book have you devoured over and over with no shame?--
Poison Study by Maria V. Snyder
I love, love, love this book!!! I am absolutely obsessed with this series and this book.

--Which book have you neglected reading due to laziness?--
The Name of the Wind by Patrick Rothfuss. 
This book is just so long!!! Also, I know the third book isn't going to be released any time soon. I don't want to read this book and the second book just to wait three freaking years for the next one.

--Which book do you most talk about in order to sound like an intellectual reader?--
The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald. 
With all the buzz the book was getting with the movie and everything I almost felt that it was a necessity to know something about this book.  

--What attributes do you find attractive in male/female characters?--
Male- Caring, smart, sarcastic, and who will stand up for himself and the ones he loves. 

--What book would you most like to receive as a gift?--
Um...all of them. If I have to specific I would say either the box set of the Song of Ice and Fire series or Rogue edited by George R. R. Martin

--I tag--
If you want to do this than you are tagged.

Happy reading

September TBR

School starts again this month, so I tried to keep this TBR short. However, there's just so many books to read!! So this pile might be a little ambitious considering.

Owned Books

Most of these books I've had sitting on my shelves unread for far to long and I want to finally read them. Falling Kingdoms and the Holly Black book are new buys for me and I'm excited to read them!

Book(s) Not Yet Owned or Released

I can not wait for the release of Heir of Fire!!! I need it now!

With the cliffhanger at the end of The Knife of Never Letting Go, I need to continue the series. I need to now what happens!

What books are you reading this month?

August Wrap-Up

August was a great reading month for me! At the beginning of the month I set out to read tons of books since it would be my last school free month. However, I got into a reading slump at the beginning of the month so I didn't end up reading as many books as I wanted to but I still read a lot. I also loved of liked almost all the books I read, so that's a plus.

Announcement : School

Hello all, I'm writing this post to say that things might get a little slow around the blog. School is starting up again tomorrow and I'll have less time for the blog then usually. So I'm not going to be able to post as much. I do have a stock pile of posts ready, so this might not effect the blog right away, but it's going to happen. Also, I"m going to have less time to comment and visit other blogs and posts, so I apologize for that in advance. I just wanted to let everyone know and to wish everyone happy September reading! And a good luck to anyone else starting school.

Happy reading
