Inside Out Book Tag | 2

Have you ever seen the heart-breaking, heart-warming, gut-wrenching, tear-jerking, laugh-inducing movie Inside Out? Well, you should! Today I’m here with the Inside Out Book Tag. Thanks so much to Kelly @ Just Another Book in the Wall for tagging me!!

A book that brings you joy

Girl Up by Laura Bates. This is one of the first books I read in 2018 and I still find myself thinking about it every once in a while. Not only is it hilarious and informational, but it’s also incredibly empowering.

A book that brings you sadness

Oliver Twist by Charles Dickens. Poor Oliver! This novel was much darker than I initially expected it would be… although I should have known that any Dickens novel wouldn’t likely be sunshine and rainbows!

A book that makes you angry

Ann Veronica by H.G. Wells. As I explained in my Feminist Fridays post about this novel a few weeks back, I found Wells’ views on women, suffragettes, marriage, etc. to be very frustrating.

A book that disgusts you

Heart of Darkness by Joseph Conrad. I don’t find many books disgusting, so this question was a little more difficult than the others. However, the overt racism and violence in this classic novel definitely fit the bill.

A book that brings you fear

The Handmaid’s Tale by Margaret Atwood. Ah, good old deeply entrenched societal problems. The scary thing about this novel is that it is not an extremely unrealistic portrayal of what some women feel like in the world.

What are your answers to these questions? What do you think of mine? Do you like this movie? Let me know in the comments section below!

  1. Oh I loved Inside Out, it was such a brilliant movie, really ❤ Lovely choices of answers as well, Holly! I haven't read the handmaid's tale, but from what I've heard, it seems like a terrifying vision for sure… I'll have to give this book a try someday 🙂 x

  2. I read Heart of Darkness once because it seemed everyone had read it except for me. I mostly remember being extremely bored. I get that it’s still studied in classes on colonialism, but it is so dull!
