Feelings Matter Book Tag

It`s one of those days when I`m not in the mood for anything. No book captures my attention. No movie seems interesting enough. No Netflix. No chill. I am due for another eye check-up soon and maybe that`s the problem. Lately, I`ve been having some terrible headaches that put me in a shit mood. But life and blogging must go on. Luckily enough, I have come across the Feelings Matter Book Tag on Sydney`s Shelves blog. Which is perfect for me because I am an emotional person. It`s disturbing how many times I`ll find myself yelling at my TV or a book.

I cry like a baby when anything emotional happens. I even cried at "Transformers" when I thought that Bumblebee was about to die. Yes, I am that damaged. I`m the worst to watch movie or TV Shows because I will talk non-stop. At least reading is a solitary experience. Which is worse cause there`s nobody to pick me up from the floor when my favourite couple breaks up. Or *the horrorrrrr*,
they kill my favourite character. Anyways, let`s get back to the tag.

1. What book made you feel confident either about yourself or life?

One obvious answer would be "Harry Potter", but that would be boring. I will go with "Rebel of the Sands" instead. The main character, Amani, is a strong and determined girl that challenges the way society exists. She`s also witty and you all know how much I love a smart-ass.

2. What book made you feel sympathy or sympathise greatly with the characters?

I think that we should start a drinking game. Every time I mention "A Monster Calls", everybody does a shot. No seriously, don`t do that! You`ll end up in a coma. And also, in case you`re wondering, I have read more than one book and that`s not the reason I keep mentioning it. It`s because it`s one of the most heartbreaking stories I have ever read. Also, my Grandma died of cancer a couple of years ago, so the story felt personal. I knew what Conor was going through, the guilt and sorrow. 

3. What book made you feel anxious?

I am not sure, probably "The Hunger Games". Because the story felt somewhat real in the current state of the world.

4. What book made you feel annoyed?

How about every Cassie Clare book? Shit, don`t say that, the fandom will demand your head. But no, seriously, why is Clary so awful? I was annoyed by "City of Bones", I`m surprised I did not DNF it. Because Clary is a spoiled brat that just yells at everyone and thinks she is mature. And fantasises about Jace`s cherub features while stringing precious Simon along.

Before you call me a hater, let me tell you that I do in fact love Magnus Bane. I`m a fan of the Lightwood brothers and Simon. I`m OK even with Jace. It`s just Clary that`s the pain in my bookworm ass.

5. What book made you feel disappointed?

This book started out OK. I mean, Scarlet was a bit of a Mary Sue and they were slut-shaming the hell out of Tella, but it was still decent. Enter the love interest and everything went downhill. And it`s such a shame because "Caraval" had such a promising plot. I was so intrigued by this world and wanted to know more about it. But no, let`s focus on love. Not on the story or sisterly bond, but on Julian`s tight brown muscles.

6. What book made you feel satisfied?

"Allegiant". Nope, I`m joking. I consider myself more of a sadist than a masochist. My answer is "Pride and Prejudice". And before you eye roll your eyes at me, let me tell you that I have tried reading this book 3 times and failed miserably. But this was finally my year and now that I have read it I am very satisfied with myself. A small victory is still a victory.

7. What book made you confused?

Even though it ended up being one of my favourite books of 2016, "The Queen of the Tearling" confused the shit out of me. It started out as high-fantasy and then it turned into dystopia. Even now I have trouble putting it into a genre. Nevertheless, it`s a fantastic read filled with political and magical elements. Featuring one of the most badass queens ever. And the best secondary character, which is the Mace.

8. What book made you feel like you could really relate to the main character?

Well, Hermione is a bookworm. Alice (in Wonderland) eats everything and hopes that her problems go away. And Louisa from "Me Before You" is my awkward spirit animal, with the same weird taste in fashion. Funny enough, one of the most relatable characters that I`ve discovered recently is Dimple, from "When Dimple Met Rishi". Aside from the fact that she is Indian and tech-savvy, her personality is really similar to mine. She`s ambitious and unapologetic, and I love that.
And that`s all. I hope you enjoyed this tag and my answers. Please don`t send hate mail for the Cassie Clare roast, I`m only human after alllllllllllll. As always, don`t forget to leave your blog links in the comments so I can check them out.


  1. Oh this is such a fun tag!!😂 I totally got confused with Queen of the Tearling too haha. The dystopian-twist totally had me going "WAIT WHAT" and I seriously wish it'd just stayed epic fantasy??? Like it looked NOTHING like our world so how the heck were they reading Harry Potter.😂 #weird
    I do love Cassandra Clare books but I'll look past that. ;)
    And A Monster Calls was BRUTAL on the feels!! AHHHHHHHH. Still recovering from that. *Cries*

    1. Queen of the Tearling is great once you get past the confusion. I was afraid more people would get angry about the Cassie Clare comment:)) The weird part is that she writes great side characters, but I hate her main characters:))

  2. I love this post :) I hope you're having an amazing day!


  3. Oh, I love this tag! Can I steal it from you? I've recently bought Pride and Prejudice, so I'll hopefully be giving that a go soon. I didn't like Emma or Northanger Abbey, but Persuasion was manageable, so here's hoping.

    1. Austen is really not for me. Like, I can see the value of her books, but they`re not my cup of tea.
