playing with emotions: tag

19 May 2013

So i saw this on Zoe's blog (Bookhi) a few days ago and i thought it looked fun so here's my offering!

1) Which book made you happy? Any book by Shannon Hale, but especially The Goose Girl: if you haven't read it then you need to! It's amazingly written and just..oh..just read it. :)

2) Which book made you feel sad?
Sad in a good way: The Fault In Our Stars by John Green, if you've read it you'll know why. :) I don't think i've read many books that were sad in a particularly bad way, but Wonder by R.J Palacio made me sad as well.

3) What book made you feel angry? 
Between Shades of Gray by Ruta Septys. It's a book about war, and fear, and pain, and sadness and made me seeth with anger when i read it, as it talks about the evil people in the world, and what they will do if they want power.

4) What book makes you feel nostalgic?
Enid Blyton's books. Whenever i read them i just remember when i was younger: they used to be my favourite books. The Famous Five, The St Clare's Series, The Malory Towers Series, The Secret Seven, i read them all!

5) Which book scared you? 
Siege by Sarah Mussi (review to come) game me the chills. It was really frightening  and action-packed and made you feel. As you read it i could just imagine myself being in Leah's situation. And it wasn't a very nice one i can tell you!

6 ) Which book surprised you? 
1984 by George Orwell. I never really liked Animal Farm so when my dad suggested i read 1984 i was initially very dubious, but we are in the middle of it at the moment and i am the one pushing my dad to read it! (we have a family book that we read most evenings - it's my dad's way of introducing us to different genres and getting us to read books we wouldn't usually pick up ourselves.)

7) What book made you feel disappointed? 
Errrrmm.....Aahh...Monument 14 by Emmy Laybourne. I had read some really good things about it when i first looked it up before deciding to accept it to read but when i read it i didn't really like it at all. I'm not a fan of books that have romance as the center plot when there are far more interesting things going on at the time: like MEGA TSUNAMIS!

Ok so that's me done. What did you think of my answers? Have you done one of these tags? If so, leave a link and i'll check it out!


  1. I've still yet to read The Fault in Our Stars, but I get the feeling it will reduce me to tears too. I'm very curious about Siege now! I haven't heard much about it, but I'll definitely have to check it out now.

    Thanks for sharing!

  2. Cool!

    And hey, just thought I'd say there's a few days left to enter my competition at

  3. I see a lot of titles I have yet to read. Real awesome tag.

  4. Awww, I remember I had the St. Clare series when I was younger! They really do make you feel nostalgic! Oooooh, still need to read 1984 - heard really good things about it! :D

  5. Great post! Thanks for the mention :)

    I picked The Fault in Our Stars and Between Shades of Grey too... they are both so sad :'( *gets emotional again*

    Wonder is also a great book. AND YAY FOR ENID BLYTON! They always make me feel nostalgic too... ahh memories ;)

  6. so glad you mentioned that book, The Fault in our Stars. I was debating wether to get it or not, and since I don't like sad stories because they bring me down, now I know I am not getting that book. Thanks so much!! :D

  7. I really want to read 1984 soon, and I know what you mean about Enid Blyton making you nostalgic ;)
