The Inside Out Tag | Book Tag

Header - Fiona

I remember doing this tag years ago on my old blog, and recall it being a ton of fun to do!  I saw this tag by Kayla @ Kayla’s Book Nook and (being a huge fan of Inside Out!) couldn’t pass up the opportunity to do it myself.  Alright, let’s get to it!

A Book That Brings You Joy

Image result for joy inside outSince You’ve Been Gone by Morgan Matson.  I just finished this book an hour ago, and I adored it!  It’s such a great, feel-good book that’s perfect for putting anyone in a joyous mood.  There was a lot of hype surrounding this book, so I was slightly skeptical about it at first, but I can assure you it’s definitely worth your time. Matson’s writing is terrific, and felt really down-to earth.  Loved the relatable characters, cute romance, thrilling plot, and everything else! I certainly plan on reading more of Matson’s novels in the future.

A Book That Brings You Sadness

A Book That Makes You Angry

A Book That Disgusts You

A Book That Bring You Fear

The Wrath and the Dawn by Renee Ahdieh.  I’ve never actually read a thriller or horror novel, but this book made me so scared for all the characters!  Ahdieh’s writing is so intense and truly drags you into the daunting world she created.  Of course, any logical person wouldn’t fear for any of these characters, but I feel for all of them on a personal level, real or not.  This was actually one of my favorite novels I read last year, and I’m really excited to read the sequel!

  1. LOL, I know so many people who despise Matched. I liked it when I read it, but think I might DNF it if I read it today.

    Yes, The ending to The Blood of Olympus was disappointing. I gave it 4 stars at the time, but looking back at it, I felt like it could have been a much stronger book . . . and not just because of the lack of Percy. 🙂

      1. Not sure what my least favorite book is… Actually, I just thought of it *shudders.* Better save it for the tag.

        I don’t know if I’d call it cliche. I felt like the ending was uncharacteristically happy, had a lack of resolution, and focused too much on some plot-lines while focusing too little on others.

  2. I am hoping to finally read all of Morgan Matson’s books this year. I’ve been putting them off for some reason, which is crazy because she wrote a series (Broken Hearts & Revenge series) under the name Katie Finn and it’s one of my all-time favorite series! So I have a feeling I’ll love her books under her real name.

    This tag looks like so much fun, thanks for tagging me!

  3. I’ve never seen the movie, but this post reminded me to watch it, aha. I love the way you have the characters photos too. I’ve got The Unexpected Everything on my tbr, waiting for me to crack it open, but alas, my heart is still in the Song-Covey girls’ world. I shall definitely get to it soon because Morgan Matson is such a great author. Great post!
