I spotted this tag on Destiny’s blog, Howling Libraries!
Here’s the link to Destiny’s post: The Bookish Heavenly Virtues Tag
Here we go!
CHASTITY: Which author/book/series do you wish you had never read?
The Divergent trilogy by Veronica Roth. I liked Divergent and loved Insurgent, but Allegiant ruined everything for me.
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?
The Hunger Games trilogy by Suzanne Collins.
CHARITY: Which book/series/author do you tirelessly push to others, telling them about it or even given away spare copies bought for that reason?
The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald. I re-read it every year.
DILIGENCE: Which series/author do you follow no matter what happens and how long you have to wait?
Barbara Ehrenreich. I’ve learned so much from her books!
PATIENCE: Is there an author/book/series you’ve read that improved with time the most, starting out unpromising, but ultimately proving rewarding?
I honestly can’t think of one!
KINDNESS: Which fictitious character would you consider your role model in the hassle of everyday life?
I can’t think of one!
HUMILITY: Which book/series/author do you find most underrated?
Fallible Justice by Laura Laakso. I received an ARC from the publisher in the U.K. in 2018. I’m not usually a paranormal fan, but this book was refreshing. I could barely put it down!
Tag – You’re It!

Until the next headline, Laura Beth 🙂
Patience: I want to say Sue Grafton’s Kinsey Millhone books for me. I didn’t think they started out bad, but they definitely got better as the series went on. The last few books she also had parts of it written from other characters’ points of view, which added new dimensions to the storytelling.
Reverse patience: the Left Behind series. It started out great… a suspense thriller with the premise of a modern-day setting of Bible prophecies about the end of the world. But about halfway through the series, it got really popular, and the later books in the series felt like they were just being churned out quickly so they could make a lot of money. They were full of cliches and unnecessary contrived cliffhangers, and it jumped around too much between too many different characters. (I worry about that last thing with DLTDGB, although Greg is always the point of view character, at least.)
I’m sure I could answer some of the others, but you didn’t tag me and I’m tired.
Thanks for commenting!
Ooo I like the questions in this tag, it’s a good way to find new stuff to add to your TBR. I’ve still not read the Divergent trilogy, nor have I watched the 2014 film. I have some catching up to do!
Hope you’re having a restful weekend, Laura xx
It is! I like the way tag questions make me think. I’m having a good weekend – I have tomorrow off from work, and a half-day on Friday, so a shorter work week.
