seven deadly sins book tag

I’m back with another tag. I wasn’t really tagged in it, per se, but it looked fun. I found it on Frankie’s blog. If you haven’t checked her blog out, you seriously need too. Her reviews are fun and witty. Props, as always, to the original creator!

I’m also doing this tag because I’m currently in the midst of reading Harry Potter. I want to do a series overview of it so that’s why there is the lack of book reviews. I’m also reading a Sarah Dessen book and I got an ARC for Keep You Safe which I will be starting that as well. Don’t worry, once I knock out HP, I will be back with lots of reviews! In the meantime, enjoy this fun little book tag.


Greed: What are you most expensive and inexpensive book?

My most expensive book is Illuminae. It was actually a gift from my sister for my birthday!

My least (new) expensive book is Blue by Danielle Steel. It was a measly $8USD. I would have put my thrift store books but I can’t remember which one was the cheapest.

Sloth: What book have you neglected reading due to laziness? 

Easy. It is A Court of Thorns and Roses by Sarah J Maas. The hype surrounding it is real and I don’t want to be disappointed.

Wrath: Who is an author you have a love/hate relationship with? 

Nicholas Sparks. There are a lot of his books that I adore but I really hate some of the endings that he does. They seem really pointless and hurt my heart. Luckily, my favorite, Safe Haven had a good ending.

Gluttony: What book have you devoured over and over with no shame?

Harry Potter, no questions asked. I have been re-reading it over and over again. I compare everything I have read to Harry Potter.

Lust: What traits do you find attractive in fictional characters?

Personally, I like a sense of weakness. I like it when the character knows that they are weak in some areas and they work on fixing those problems. I always think of Neville when I think of weak characters. He knows that he is weak but he also knows his strengths as well. He works on those weaknesses and gets better and becomes a kickass wizard.

Pride: What book do you talk about in order to sound intelligent? 

Hmmm, to be completely honest. I really don’t do that. I talk about all the books I’ve read, not to sound intelligent, but because I enjoy talking about books.


Envy: What book would you like to receive most as a gift?

I would love love love the duology of Six of Crows or the Ravenclaw Harry Potter book set. Each are super crazy beautiful and I wouldn’t turn them down.

fantastic beasts and where to find them movie review

I know that I am an all book blog so this review will be a little out of the norm. However, I feel that it is fitting to have a movie review that is based on a book. If this is popular or you guys like it, I can easily do more of them. I have seen The Giver and The Perks of Being a Wallflower (which I can rave about all day long!)

This weekend, I was FINALLY able to watch Fantastic Beasts. I have the textbook and have read it. I thoroughly enjoyed it and if I can find it again in my massive stash of books, I will read it and review it.

This movie was so incredible! I was sucked right back into the magical world that is Harry Potter. Yes, this wasn’t about Harry Potter but I instantly got those vibes. The movie had a very similar soundtrack to Harry Potter, so that helped the vibes immensely.

The movie follows the adventure of Newt Scamander in the 1920’s, who wrote the textbook Fantastic Beasts. His destination is Arizona but makes a stop in New York. There is a lot of drama going on with a beast that is threatening to expose the wizarding world. Newt happens to be at the wrong place at the wrong time. He enlists the help of an ex Aurora, her sister and a Muggle (No Maj as they are called in America) to help clear his name.

This movie did take a lot of liberties. The book is basically a list of all magical creatures, a short paragraph or so of information about them and the Ministry of Magic’s rating of how dangerous or not dangerous they are. So, in all reality, the movie had a lot they could do.

I did like that many different creatures did show up and Newt explained what they were and how not dangerous they are. Newt’s entire life was based on proving to wizards that not all the creatures in the world were dangerous. He is the precursor of Hagrid and I loved it.

Newt as a character was just so awkward and charming. He really did remind me of Hagrid and how much he loved all his creatures. I wholeheartedly support his cause and I now want a pet dragon, among other things.

The sequel is supposed to have Jude Law as young Dumbledore. I am interested to see how this will go. This movie did bring him up and Newt’s time at Hogwarts so I’m interested to hear the story of those two. I think that as long as Jk Rowling remains mega involved, I will love it no matter what.
