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!
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 of 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!
