Can I even take part in this tag if I haven’t seen the movie yet?
Terrible I know but never fear because as I write my answers for this tag I have Inside-Out playing in the background. I was tagged by Sammie at Bookshelves & Biros, thanks so much for the tag Sammie. I was very excited to get around to this one and finally see the movie as well.
A Book that Brings you Joy
Cinder by Marissa Meyer
Actually for this one it should really be the whole series. The Lunar Chronicles is by far my all-time favourite series, and going back to re-read any of the books always brings me joy. Every time I pick up Cinder and open it to the first page it’s like I’m reading it for the first time all over again, I just get sucked into the story and the world all over again.
A Book that Brings you Sadness
The Book Thief by Markus Zusak
Of all the genres I read historical fiction is the one I get around to the least, which is strange because the books I’ve read that fall under that genre always end up being favourites of mine. The Book Thief is the best of the best; the story that’s told, the way it’s written, the characters and the situation they find themselves in is all so emotional. No matter how many times I read this book I always end up in the tears long before I reach the final page.
A Book that Brings you Fear
Red Rising by Pierce Brown
This book started off slow but when the plot picked up it went off the charts. There was so much happening that there were times I genuinely feared for Darrow’s life; I had no clue what was coming from one page to the next and more than a few times I thought he was finally done for. It was the same story when I read Golden Son, and even though I’ve yet to read the last I know it will be the same with Morning Star as well.
A Book that Brings you Anger
Allegiant by Veronica Roth
No spoilers for Allegiant.
I just want to say that I really enjoyed the first two books, and even most of the last one as well. However when it comes to the ending, and if you’ve read Allegiant you probably know exactly what I’m talking about, just seemed to come completely out of nowhere. I hated what happened to that character, it felt like a cheap way to end everything especially given what they all survived through the series as well.
A Book that Brings you Disgust
The Death Cure by James Dashner
No spoilers for The Death Cure.
This is another situation like with the Divergent trilogy; while I did really enjoy the first two books in the series, I thought it was a unique concept with some interesting characters, the death in the last book in the last few chapters really annoyed me. It seemed to come completely out of the blue, I actually had to go back and re-read a couple of pages before to make sure I’d read it right, and that character deserved so much better.
