So I loved the new Pixar movie Inside Out! I get Sadness and Disgust on an emotional level; I can't choose between them. I saw this tag on Sanovia's blog CreatyveBooks, and knew I had to do it. (Side note, if you aren't following her, you totally should!).
Now in order of birth (inception?)
The Harry Potter series by JK Rowling
This series will never not give me joy (double negative to mean joy = always). I just love, love, love this series. Just thinking about Harry Potter makes me want to read the books all over again. #always
Persuasion by Jane Austen
I've already mentioned that I identify with Sadness on a deep, deep level, so matching this with Persuasion does not in any way mean that I dislike Persuasion (because I love it and Sadness, obviously). But, Anne has this deep, soul wearying sadness that she has to deal with on a daily basis, and watching her overcome it is why this is one of my favorites.
An Ember in the Ashes by Sabaa Tahir
I was simultaneous terrified and obsessed while reading this book. I had so many things to be frightened about happening to each of the two main characters throughout this book. My anxiety levels were just through the roof! I really did enjoy it, so don't let fear scare you away from reading it (full review here). Also, that horrible, horrible and luckily brief moment where I thought this book wasn't part of a series (but it is, don't fret like me).
Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn
This book just seriously grossed me out. The level of detail and thought that was put into murder and planning and just ugh. Every moment of that book had me just wanting to purge everything from my mind and take a long shower.
All the Bright Places by Jennifer Niven
I was expecting something completely different with this book, and to say I was disappointed would be a drastic understatement. I personally didn't enjoy this one (full review here).
