I'm sure by now you've seen the trailer for the upcoming Disney Pixar movie, Inside Out which comes out this week. I'm super excited to see it because it looks like so much fun and I saw this tag going round YouTube and thought I'd join in. Each of the questions are based on the characters that are emotions inside a little girl's head, sounds a little strange but just go with me...
01. Joy: Which book brings you the most joy?
Can I say the entire Harry Potter series? It's so obvious but it's truly the most honest answer. Particularly The Philosopher's Stone, which is a book which instantly takes me back to my childhood and makes me feel comforted and happy. I also find something new in each re-reading so that always brings me joy.
02. Disgust: Which book grossed you out the most?
Definitely American Psycho by Bret Easton Ellis. It was actually physically difficult for me to read this book in some parts as I was so close to throwing up. It's brilliant and excellently written but it's completely disgusting and horrifying and I will never read it again - not for the faint hearted!
03. Fear: Which book scared you more than anything?
This is difficult because I haven't actually read a lot of horror/scary books, I know that the Goosebumps series used to terrify me when I was younger but hopefully I've grown out of that now! I read The Woman in Black at the beginning of the year and that freaked me out a lot, but the move was definitely scarier.
04. Sadness: Which book made you cry the hardest?
I'm not much of a crier when it comes to books, they do make me emotional but I rarely tear up (when it comes to movies it's a whole different story, but I won't get into that). Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows obviously had me in floods throughout and The Fault in our Stars is also an obvious one that had me sobbing but I can't think of any others!
05. Anger: Which book pissed you off?
Gone Girl. I don't even want to talk about it. It's just terrible and hateful and it makes me so unspeakably angry. grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr.
This tag was so fun as it's interesting to remember books that provoked such intense, visceral emotions. If you're reading this then I tag you to do this and remember to link your version in the comments below!
