stirred to disgust

I am reading Life after life by Kate Atkinson.

Sylvie was reading Conrad, while Bridget had a copy of Jane Eyre that Sylvie had given her as she had not thought to bring one of her usual thrilling gothic romances. Bridget proved to be an animated reader, frequently gasping in horror or stirred to disgust and, at the end, delight. It made The Secret Agent seem quite dry by comparison.

I don't understand the meaning of "stirred to disgust" in this context. Could you please help me. Thank you.
