Hi, guys! I am here with another book tag because I found it on internet and I had to do it. Just read the name! Here you can find the original tag.
I say we can start and I hope this isn't going to be as long as I think.
-Greed- What is your most inexpensive book? What is your most expensive book?
About my most inexpensive book I'd rather say it's Incarceron by Catherine Fisher.
Bought it at only €4 (about $4.94) on THE BEACH. Yes, you didn't read anything wrong. Was it worth it? I enjoyed it, but didn't love it, so we can say it was worth that price. The book talks about Finn, a prisoner where the prison is a living -and dangerous- creature that doesn't want its prisoners to escape. Obviously he has to meet The Girl, that in this case happens to be a princess named Claudia. With his old friend and her new one (not Claudia, another girl), he tries to escape. I loved the concept and the fact that the prison is a living creature -just wow. But, once again, a great premise was ruined by how the author developed the novel. I came really disappointed by that because with all the things you could continue this novel with, the author chose the worst ones.
My most expensive one is Harry Potter and the Cursed Child. It's a hardcover, bought the day after its release and in English: € 22,89 because it's £ 20. Was it worth it? Kind of. I have no doubts I loved it, buuut I should have never bought a book with that price.
-Wrath- Which author do you have a love/hate relationship with?
Uhm, for this one I would say Maggie Stiefvater. Nor that I hate her, of course, but at first I didn't like her book a lot. I am talking about Shiver. Long story, but not so long one: I wanted to read The Raven Boys because the plot intrigued me the most, but my bookstore didn't have that, therefore I ended up buying Shiver. Oh boy, how I was disappointed by that book. Don't get me wrong, I liked it, just my expectations ruined it.
And that's when the love part begins. I gave Stiefvater a second chance and I am so happy I did. I loved The Raven Boys so much.

-Gluttony- What book have you deliciously devoured over and over with no shame whatsoever?
The Dream Thieves by Maggie Stiefvater. Seriously, every time someone mentions that book or the book series I just can't help but be the fangirl of the situation.
I think I have read this book after school ended, in summer, so I was way ready to read it all. The characters are my babies, each one of them. Really, I can't be exicted when I am talking about this series, my hands are shaking and I'm about to re-read them now.
-Sloth- Which book have you neglected reading due to laziness?
A lot. Especially loooong, infinity books. Sometimes I just feel like 'okay a book has to be long, but I am not going to read that amount of pages'.
Just some examples:
-Pride- Which book do you most talk about in order to sound like a very intellectual reader?
Okay, this one deals with a pretty true topic: reading classics and telling everyone about it because you're a smart kid now.
These ones are the classics I am always referring to when I am talking to my non-reader friend and want to brag myself. Yeah, sorry you had to know that.
Oh oh, we are getting specific here. I love when male characters are adorable geeks, but I don't mind bad boys either. So, as long as they are fictional, #gimme.
-Envy- Which books would you most like to receive as a gift?
Too bad my mum can't speak English because this could have been useful to her. I would love to receive:
The list could be endless, so I can say we can stop at these ones.
Let me know what are your answers below! Another thing: if I made a mistake, don't hesistate to signal it! Thank you.
