Original Top Ten Tuesday Prompt: Ten books to read if you’re in the mood for _____
Revised Prompt Because I’m an Obnoxious Little Rebel: Books to read if you’re feeling one or all of the seven deadly sins (you are don’t lie). Basically, for each sin I shall select a book parallel. Basically, this post has nothing to do with the original Top Ten Tuesday prompt. Basically, I have no idea what I’m doing.
1. Shatter Me by Tahereh Mafi
Warner is a CRAZY little pumpkin in this book. I mean, he seems like the creepiest, most atrocious, most disgusting little villain. The whole lust thing? Not a good look for him.
BUT—are things really as they seem? Is this deadly sin even present, or is it all in Juliette’s perception? I suppose you’ll just have to read it to find out.
(Would I kill it as a car salesman or what)
2. Carry On by Rainbow Rowell
This book takes breaks from plotting against evil monsters and murderers in order to eat and talk about eating and to describe the eating.
Not going to lie, this pleases me. Immensely.
3. Six of Crows by Leigh Bardugo
Thieves & heists & money OH MY!
Though there are a few other motivations sprinkled across these pages, characters generally launch an epic heist for the money. Just saying.
4. The Selection by Kiera Cass
While the official definition of sloth is: Laziness, unwillingness to work, the protagonist in this book features another form.
SLOTH IN DECISION-MAKING.
Let’s take a step into our MC’s mind: Should I choose to marry this prince who is lovely and rich and powerful and kind or should I marry this poor boy who’s a pathetic jerk? You know what, I’ll just take three books to MAKE UP MY MIND.
5. The Wrath and the Dawn by Renée Ahdieh
Basically, Sharzhad marries the king so that she can kill him in his sleep as revenge. No biggie.
I mean…it’s called The Wrath and the Dawn.
6. Tiny Pretty Things by Sona Charaipotra & Dhonielle Clayton
Where there is professional ballerina-ing, there is envy.
A rough summary of this book: Your pirouettes are better than mine? I am envious let me back stab you. You have a better arch than mine? I am envious let me back stab you. You get the lead part and I didn’t? I am envious let me back stab you. And so on.
7. Throne of Glass by Sarah J. Maas
Celaena’s pride can triumph through anything.
Slaving away in Endovier? Memories of the many innocents killed? Not taking a shower for a year or two?
NOTHING STOPS HER PRIDE.
Which of the seven deadly sins have you committed today? Let’s have a blogging confessional in which you tell me ALL YOUR SECRETS.
