The EMOJI Book Tag


The awesome Liam @Liam’s Libarary tagged me to do the EMOJI Book Tag! It looks like a lot of fun and it’s actually very easy too: All you have to do is pair 5 of your most recent or most often used emojis with books that you think represent them the best. Got it? Great then let’s get this started!

For your information, I think I am using a mix of my most recent and most used ones. Why only stick to one of them?

Loudly Crying Face

I use this emoji ALL THE TIME, be it for the Shannara Chronicles, The Royals, any of the Chicago shows, a book, a movie, whatever! It’s not enough to have the emoji with the single tear, NO! I need the full on sobbing one, because I am just that devastated.
So, thinking about a book that emotionally wrecked me, The Book Thief by Markus Zusak comes to mind! I did not handle that book well and cried for the majority of it.


What am I using a penguin for? I don’t know … it looks cute I guess. I crocheted one the other day and took advantage of that emoji for every tweet or post I wrote about it.
Trying to find the right book for it now is sort of difficult though … I did not think that through properly. HA! I am going to be sneaky and use a book published by Penguin Books! *taps herself on shoulder* The first one I saw on my shelf was How I Live Now by Meg Rosoff. Great book, not cute at all though!

Broken Heart

Again, this comes into play a lot when I tweet about the Royals, because Jaspenor is killing me every. single. episode.
Now, a book that completely shattered my heart would be Clockwork Princess by Cassandra Clare. I think I died a couple of times while reading that book.

Face With Open Mouth

We’ve established my flair for emoji-dramatics and I guess I am generally an exasperated person, because I use this one a lot too!
This particular emoji expresses shock or surprise to me and one of the most cruel and unexpected twists I’ve read last year was the one at the end ofΒ Red Queen by Victoria Aveyard. I am going to be careful to trust anyone in that story ever again, but I simply cannot wait for Glass Sword!

Face with Tears of Joy

I think this one just looks funny. I am using it whenever I laugh about something really, really hard. Since I am pretty easy to entertain, that’s not all that rarely.
In terms of books, it wouldn’t be a complete book tag of mine if I didn’t mention The Martian by Andy Weir. So, here’s my chance and I am taking it. I laughed so much during that book and I actually cried tears of joy in the end, so this is really the perfect emoji to capture my reading experience!

  1. You really use a lot the broken heart emoji every time you tweet about Jaspenor especially because they haven’t been that happy for an eternity.
    I had no idea that The Martian was kind of funny. I only found out when I was watching the Golden Globes yesterday and Matt Damon won the award for Best Actor in a Comedy but I really want to read that book πŸ™‚

  2. I’ve heard of all of these and I’ve read all of them except for The Martian which I own!!!! I didn’t like the Book Thief, but I loved How I Live Now. You’re right- it isn’t a cute one.

    • The Book Thief is such a great read, but I understand if you haven’t read it yet. I think it’s a book where you have to be in the right mood for, because the topic can become a bit heavy, even when it’s wrapped in beautiful storytelling.

  3. The Book Thief totally wrecked me too! That ending though…Red Queen had some totally shocking moments, at times it felt like there was betrayal upon betrayal upon betrayal. Like inception! I can’t wait to read The Martian. My dad read it and was laughing out loud too. And why not penguin? Great answers!


    • I am glad we seem to be on the same wavelength in terms of books πŸ™‚ I am going to be really careful with trusting anyone on Glass Sword.
      I would love for you to read the Martian! It was one of my 2015 favourite reads!!


      • I love it when you find people with similar book tastes, it makes recommendations and such so much easier and pleasant! In terms of Glass Sword, me too. But I also hope Victoria Aveyard finds a way to shock me like that anyway.
        I’ll be picking the Martian up soon πŸ™‚

      • Me too! It’s great when you have the feeling you can keep gushing about a book, because they will most likely like it too!
        I bet Aveyard will surprise us again πŸ™‚ so far the pre-release reviews of Glass Sword were really good.
        YAY! Can’t wait to hear your opinion on the Martian!


  4. Well, I kind of -definitely- applauded when I read your answer for the Penguin.. But, A PENGUIN, KAT ? ahahhaha Never used that one, I don’t think I’ve ever even paid attention to it.
    I agree with you on The book thief, The martian AND Clockwork Princess. I just caught myself nodding while reading your answers.
