inside out book tag

If you haven't heard of Disney/Pixar's Inside Out, I honestly don't know where you've been the last couple of months. And if you've heard of it but haven't seen it, GO SEE IT. 

Kristina Horner , one of my favourite YouTubers, started this tag today that centres all around the five main emotions in the movie. Let's get started! 

Which book brings you the most joy? 
This one has to be Isla and the Happily Ever After. I'm trying to think back to last summer when I read this book, and I can honestly say I pretty much had a perma-smile on my face the whole time I read it. It's just such a fun and heartwarming story - I loved every single word. Isla also has a very special place in my heart since it was one of the first books I featured on this blog!

Which book grossed you out the most? 
The only book that I can think of that really made my stomach turn is The Merciless,  simply because  of how gory it got at times. The violence is quite graphic at times,  and it was one of my first  novels in the horror genre so that was definitely new to me! A couple parts were pretty gross to the unseasoned reader.  

Which book scared you more than anything? 
I don't tend to get super freaked out by books too often, but one that really stuck for me in terms of fear was Life As We Knew It. Some of the scariest things I've encountered in books are natural disaster stories, simply because they seem so realistic and are so incredibly believable. This one pretty much goes into what would happen if the moon somehow got knocked off its orbit (spoiler alert: everything would suck). Don't read this if you tend to worry about the end of the world, because I guarantee you will lose sleep. 

Which book made you cry the hardest?
Hands down, my pick for this one absolutely has to be Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. I don't think there was a single point in time when I was reading this book where I wasn't sad, and my copy has literal tear stains all over it.  I was pretty much on a steady flow of tears the whole time I read it to the point that it's kind of a miracle I didn't get dehydrated. 

Which book pissed you off?
I actually had a pretty hard time narrowing this one down, but ultimately my decision was Seventeenth Summer. I kind of feel like a cheater because this was a required book for school, but it just pissed me off so much. Angie is quite possibly the stupidest and most annoying protagonist I've come across in my reading career, and I read the Twilight series. So, yeah. Granted, this book was written in the 1940s and things were obviously very different at that time, but damn. I just couldn't take it. Maybe I'm just mad at the '40s. 

Big thank you to Kristina for creating this awesome tag! If any of you do it as well, let me know. :)
