The Bookish Heavenly Virtues Tag…

I saw this tag on Destiny’s page Howling Libraries and decided to give it a shot. She grabbed it from Sofii. I’m unsure of who originally came up with this one, if you know, please msg me.

CHASTITY: Which author/book/series do you wish you had never read?

Throne of Glass by Sarah J. Maas. Ok, this might be cheating as I didn’t finish the book, but the 3 chapters I did read were more than enough and it is one of those books that fills me with a burning rage. It’s popularity is beyond belief. IMHO it is tedious, plain, mediocre shit. #SorryNotSorry

TEMPERANCE: Which book/series did you find so good, that you didn’t want to read it all at once, and you read it in doses just to make the pleasure last longer?

I have two and both are still unfinished as I can’t say goodbye. The Nevernight trilogy by Jay Kristoff and the Book of the ancestor series by Mark Lawrence.

CHARITY: Which book/series/author do you tirelessly push to others, telling them about it or even given away spare copies bought for that reason?

All The Rage by Courtney Summers. She has inspired some of the biggest epiphanies I’ve had in my life and I still credit her with making me a better human.

DILIGENCE: Which series/author do you follow no matter what happens and how long you have to wait?

Brandon Sanderson. He is my original favourite fantasy author and I will wait however long between books and I will commit to that ten book series.

PATIENCE: Is there an author/book/series you’ve read that improved with time the most, starting out unpromising, but ultimately proving rewarding?

I don’t really like this question. Unpromising is just a dick word. One of my favourite authors, who started out strong and then has continued developing a wicked style and story telling ability is Mark Lawrence.

KINDNESS: Which fictitious character would you consider your role model in the hassle of everyday life?

I don’t really have an answer for this. I have a few characters that I wish I was more like. Mia’s determination and commitment for one would be great.

HUMILITY: Which book/series/author do you find most underrated?

Lauren James is an absolute gem. She writes amazing ya sci-fi, with incredibly realistic, endearing characters. She is a must read.

  1. Oh, I don’t think I’ve seen the tag before! Just the seven deadly sins version of it. I’ve only read Sadie from Courtney Summers and I definitely mean to check out some of her older catalogue. She seems to have *such* a way of talking about abuse and violence against women. And I think most of my friends who love Sarah J. Maas is in the “I know this is trashfire but I can’t stop reading” category. 😛


    1. I still haven’t read Sadie, I know it will probably make me cry. Her writing style really brings her characters to life and makes it so realistic. I really enjoyed This Is Not A Test, although it feels almost wrong to say I enjoyed her books as I find them so confronting. It covers domestic violence and is another book that really made me think.

      Haha, I read the first two books in Maas’s other series and it was very much trash that I couldn’t stop reading lol.
