Award ceremony – September 2019. Receiving and giving.

*NOMINATION NO. 2*
*THE SEVEN HEAVENLY VIRTUES BOOK TAG*

(See page 1 for thanks and intro.)

FROM: Lashaan, who shares his reviews about comics, books, movies, and more.

RULES:

  1. Mention the person who nominated you.
  2. Answer the asked questions based on 7 Heavenly Virtues and books.
  3. Nominate other bloggers.

QUESTIONS and my ANSWERS:

  1. CHASTITY
    Which author/book/series you wish you had never read?
    Thank you for going easy on me and starting with one about which I do not need to think hard.
    “The Poppy War” and “The Dragon Republic”
    Both had potential since they had bits and pieces of a new mythology, but the main character was terrible, the pacing of the plot was sluggish, and the gods were left mostly unexplored.

  2. 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 do not think that it is actually possible for me. I either want to read more, so I do, or I struggle and read in small doses.

  3. CHARITY
    Which book/series/author do you tirelessly push to others, telling them about it or even giving away spare copies bought for that reason?
    When morals meet politics, evil can take root. A great cautionary tale reminding us about the value of our elders, children, and God.
  4. DILIGENCE
    Which series/author you follow no matter what happens and how long you have to wait?
    I have to admit that I am not loyal to any single author. The books I choose to read are selected based on the plot and not the author. Since I am not a fan of series, there really aren’t too many occasions on which you might find me waiting for the next book. I did, however, read the latest of the “Harry Potter” -related books (“Harry Potter and the Cursed Child”), because… it’s Harry Potter. (Published almost 20 years after the first book)

  5. PATIENCE
    Is there an author/book/series you’ve read that improved with time the most, starting out unpromising, but ultimately proving rewarding?
    Fortunately, or not, I know what I do not like. If the book begins with me not enjoying it, the chances of this sentiment changing are rather slim. I’ve been proven right a few times. Never proven wrong (or I just don’t remember).

  6. KINDNESS
    Which fictitious character would you consider your role-model in the hassle of everyday life?
    Role-models have never been my thing. I prefer to by MYSELF.
  7. HUMILITY
    Which book/series/author do you find most under-rated?
    Outlander
    Yes, it is the ultimate love story, but it is also so much more. It has witches and human sacrifice and gore. Everything is so well balanced.

Add yours

  1. Dumbness?

    I talk to myself out loud.

    I’m with you on the damn bugs.

    You’ve mentioned teleportation…twice. Would you believe me if I told you that humans used to have the ability to trans & bi-locate?

    1. Dumbness. It’s a thing. The informal meaning.

      This post was VERY lengthy. I am in awe, knowing that you actually read through it. It just goes to show that I could really use a teleportation device. Bi-locate? That’s interesting.

      1. I looked up dumbness. I couldn’t find it. But, our language evolves.

        When we were full soul humans, we could translocate all over the planet…and, yes, bi-locate. We used to be far more powerful. We didn’t need teleportation devices until much later when we started to lose our abilities. The devices are still dotted around the planet but, sealed up. One was destroyed in an earthquake just to the west of Greece (underwater, now).

  2. Guilty as charged 😉

    You and I agree on many things (dumbness of people, winning the lotery), but weather wise we don’t go hand in hand!

    Also you post pictures of a moose and tiger, i’ll just rudely assume they are for me 😉
    My latest obsession are also sharks!

    I will do the award, as soon as I have a laptop!

    1. It’s true. I cannot understand why you like the weather that you do, but… I respect your choice 😀

      The beginning of the post was inspired by you, so you are more than welcome to take the moose and tiger. Sharks are cool indeed.

      Awesome!
