This was originally created by Missy from BingeReader and just sounded so fun when I saw it that I wanted to do it myself. Plus it’s somewhat spooky? Maybe? A good way to close out the month.
Let’s head Down, down town for a visit…
1.) Limbo – What book series have you read the first book but have not made the commitment to read the rest?
Hrrmmm… This is a bad habit of mine. I start a lot of things, stop and then wait 5 years before finishing them. Most lately though? Probably Dragon Bound, it was fun and quick but I don’t know if I’ll return to it or another one of my urban/paranormal fantasies when I want my fix.
3.) Gluttony – What series can you read over and over and not get your fill?
Well I mean… Harry Potter… but besides that I don’t really reread? I have reread the Mercy Thompson books twice and am getting ready for a third so I can FINALLY catch up on the damn series. I keep getting behind!
4.) Greed – What book do you need multiple copies of even though you own enough of them?
I have several copies of Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell, but honestly I’m going to have to again say Harry Potter. I have three… no, four different versions of the first book and I still want to collect the nice hardbacks the UK got last year. I have a problem.
OH! I was answering six and realized, I have three different versions of The Gunslinger! That one, and honestly the other books in the series. I have mismatch ones and get more as I finish them. But the Gunslinger specifically since there are actual differences within the book from the original and current print.
5.) Wrath – What book did you hate and would never recommend?
6.) Heresy – What book or series got really low ratings, or that most people despised but you loved?
The Gunslinger by Stephen King. I get it, it’s a freaking weird book – even for a King book! He wrote it when he was 19 and it sets an entirely different tone from the rest of the books but I’ve read it more than a few times and I love it more each time.
7.) Violence – What dystopian book or series had the most violent society?
I’m not really a dystopian fan. Not really, I don’t actively seek it out but I guess the best answer I can think of is Battle Royale. Exploding heads, murdering school children… what’s better in dystopia than that?
8.) Fraud – What book cover or synopsis not truthfully depict the story?
I very rarely think covers match stories, but that’s just me. The Clan Novels from Vampire the Masquerade very RARELY give any hint to what’s inside – just a character portrait. The second Libiromancer has Lena on the cover of the entirely different race than what she should have been.
Also, I think the synopsis for The Rest of Us Just Live Here was pretty off, but in a good way. It’s a solid book, much better than the synopsis makes it seem.
9.) Treachery – In what book series did the protagonist start off strong but grow weaker as time went on?
Oh geez, look, I don’t know why I kept reading these or bought them on release but it was like those guilty pleasure soap operas or talk shows, but America Singer from the Selection Series.
I really don’t want to talk about it.
Alright, that’s it, my Nine Circles of Hell are complete! HAHA! No, but really, it wasn’t bad. I hope everyone had a great Halloween and enjoyed!
