Everyone's got something to brag about:

Kaia's getting it on with bachelor #1, though scruffball Reed's gotten to be quite an interesting distraction.

Kane and Harper got exactly what they planned:

Namely, Beth and Adam. (Though to keep gettin' it, their secrets -- and pasts -- best stay forgotten.)

Miranda got her heart broken, but now she's all decked with a new

I give the book “Pride” a definite A+. This story is about all the things a group of teenagers face throughout their school year. A lot has changed in a short time with these kids. Kane and Harper accomplished their devious plan of breaking off the happy couple. With Beth and Adam no longer together, Kane and Harper immediately jump on the opportunity. Now with Kane dating Beth and Adam dating Harper it makes everything more complicated and causes more drama. Adam and Kane are no longer friends ...more

I'm loving Reed. He's sexy and mysterious and fantastic. I can't wait for more of him. I'm ready to shoot Harper, though, that girl just... ugh, I don't know. But I can't stand her, maybe because she's living in denial over how just how much of a two-faced disaster she is. Which brings us to Kaia - who is Kaia, and knows it, and is unafraid to admit that. You can't help but love that conniving little bitch. Same with Kane, because he's so conceited and obnoxious and a player, and it d

I think this was just as good as the first two. I finished it pretty quickly because it is such a good read! There are characters that I absolutely love to death and am rooting for all the way - then there are characters I can't stand to read about. The ones I love are Kaia (who I hated in the first few), and Reed! They're my favorite to read about, and I really hope they get together. The character I hate is Beth. She is so boring, and whenever the paragraph is about her I can feel myself rolli ...more

The book “Pride” is the third book to the sequel Seven Deadly Sins. In this book a lot has changed! Just like we read in the second book, Kane and Harper's plan to break up Beth and Adam has worked. Adam and Harper finally become boyfriend and girlfriend, along with Kane and Beth. No one saw either of these couples together, but the couples themselves definitely did! The way Adam and Beth were broken up was not very fair to Beth, because she was framed. The students all went on a skiing trip, an ...more

I read the book "Pride", which is the third book of the "7 Deadly Sins" series, by Robin Wasserman. Overall the book was extremely good; I like this book the most so far. Throughout the whole book I wondered what would happen next. "Pride" is about Harper and Kane being happy with their significant other, Adam and Beth. Also, Kaia gets what she wants, Mr. Powell. Mr. Powell set some ground rules for him and Kaia if they were going to have a thing. Everything is going good until Kaia’s New Years ...more

I have no idea why pride is a 3rd tome of the series, since pride itself is a root of all of the other sins (or the foremost sin; besides there was no implication on the cover of the book that the stories were related to each other [so I had to catch up with the whole story])...

Anyway the book is ok I guess. The narrative is quite dynamic (which is a plus) and the book is very easy to read (to be finished in couple of hours tops) and finally it accurately portrays some human behavior based on a

Oooh so i see where is this going now. It's not as dull and not so simple as I thought it would be. The story was planed elaborately and cleverly. There's more than one dimension into that. Now I understand why the author made Adam slept with Kaia (according to #1 Lust). I have reviewed in #2 Envy that Kaia wasn't someone I'd like to associate with (I still wouldn't want to though) but it seems that she had sympathy towards her conspirator (Harper) more than I thought. I could feel a smirk on Ka ...more

I read this book series back in 11th grade. I only vaguely remember them, but I know that I really liked them a lot. Sloth & Gluttony were my least favorite books in the series, according to my diary entries about this book series in October 2009. I read Sloth (#5) & Gluttony (#6) before reading Wrath (#4) apparently, so I was a little bit confused by them and that may have been why I liked them a little less. I really liked Lust (#1), Envy (#2), and Pride (#3) a lot though.

The tension is slowly but steadily increasing, and we're very very close for it to just explode in everyone's faces.

Kaia has quickly become one of my favourites, and I'm hating Beth even more and I honestly didn't know that was possible.

I love the fact that everyone has redeeming qualities that save them from being complete and utter villains, and everyone can probably identify themselves with them at some point or another.

Love Reed's introduction in the story, by the way.

This book was good, though not as good as the first two in this series; Lust & Envy. I am on to the next book now, Wrath, & I have high hopes it will be as good as the first two.
What I really like about this series is that... it's based on modern life, real life, and not just your average fantasy romance novel.

I feel so completely bad for Harper, though she may be so cruel to people... it's not completely her fault that she is mean. It's this world and how corrupted people have became. She loved Adam, but Adam would have never known he loved her just as much when he was in love with Beth. I totally feel for her and understand why she decided to do the things she did an

I LOVE THIS SERIES!! I ordered all seven books from my local library and am so hoping I won't be disappointed in the next four books. I doubt I will but at the end of this book they mention that someone dies in the next?! Ugh I realllly hope it doesn't wreck the series for me but I trust Robin to make the rest just as good as the last ones. I highly recommend everyone to read this series it gets you hooked right away and wanting to read the next one asap. I really don't want to say anymore about ...more

A lot of this book has little to do with pride. Although I really liked Beth and Adam in the first book, now I think that I'm sticking with Harper and Adam. When Harper is with Adam, she just seems naturally happier and her instinct that tells her to screw around with other peoples' lives just tends to halt. To sum it up, Harper is a lot nicer when she has someone. I really think that this book really shows the true colors of each of these characters because now that things have changed, you'll ...more

As the third book of this series (The Seven Deadly Sins), Pride may be one of the best books in the series, in my opinion. The story leaves the original setting of the town and the crew goes on a ski trip. On this trip. friends become enemies and enemies become friends, at least for a while.

I thought this was the best book because it really shows the change in the characters. Instead of the simple plot that appears in the other books of this series, this really changes the way I thought of each

Everyone is faking big time in this book. Harper feigns sweetness to keep Adam, Kane pretends to understand Beth, and Kaia plays both the French teacher and Reed. This book was a great follow-up to Envy.

I really hate Kane. I'm so glad Beth finally saw through him! Although I don't like Adam and Beth together at all, he really needs to get over her and realize how terrible they are together. Anyway, I'm interested to read the next book and find out more about the "New Beth". ...more
