My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I read “The Emotion Thesaurus” shortly after reading “The Negative Trait Thesaurus,” and now quite many details and notations made in the latter work make sense. This is another valuable title to have in a writing library, because it examines how emotions are not only shown in a narrative, but also how they function and how to make the most of them in your writing. Again, Angela Ackerman and Becca Puglisi did a phenomenal job with the research and expansion on character emotions, actions, and general hints and tips to think about when showing these details in a work. I definitely see myself coming back to this many times in the future.

Overall score: 4.5/5 stars
