Y’all know that I love me a good tag. Today I’m doing one that I was tagged to do almost four months ago. Thank you to Joey @Thoughts and Afterthoughts for tagging me to do the Emoji Book Tag!
I think what you have to do here is just pick the emojis that you either use the most, or are just your favourites and associate a book with it. Quite open-ended if you ask me.
I’m going to go with my 5 most used. Let’s do it!
Grinning Face with Smiling Eyes
Let’s start off basic. This one, to me, means happy but with a hint of grateful in there. For this one I’m just going to choose a book that I’m happy and grateful to have picked up for whatever reason. I’m going to go with Unearthly by Cynthia Hand. While other people discovered YA fiction from Twilight, I found it from Unearthly. Swept up in the paranormal and romance of it all. My mum picked it out for me when she visited the library. I never looked back.
People who know me in real life say that I have a resting bitch face. Like, all the time. Even when I don’t mean too! It’s very disconcerting! Anyway, I’m choosing a book that I just thought ‘…really?’ for. Whatever that means. Therefore, On Dublin Street by Samantha Young takes the cake. Just so cliche and characters that were so unoriginal. No thank you!
Face Screaming in Fear
I’m a drama queen. What can I say? I’m going for a book that shocked me to the core and gave me that ‘Umm…WHAT?!’ reaction us book-lovers crave. What other book besides Queen of Shadows by Sarah J. Maas could I choose? This book was just a roller coaster of ups and downs. Plans, character interactions, action scenes and dialogue that just left me screaming.
I don’t really associate this face with weariness, more with anguish and giving up. Just done. Even dread. For this one, I’m going with Hate List by Jennifer Brown. Don’t get me wrong, I loved this book. It’s just you can see what’s going to happen and you’re screaming at the characters to just not do or think what they think. It’s part of the reason I liked this book so much 🙂
Nail Polishing Hand
Because I’m sassy. We all know this emoji means ‘I’m better than you’. For this one I’m choosing a book that reigns supreme over all others. So of course, Harry Potter by JK Rowling. Nothing beats Harry Potter. Like…ever. #sorrynotsorry
So that was a lot of fun. I feel like I covered my feelings and let them all out.
What’s your favourite emoji and why?
I don’t really know who’s been tagged and who hasn’t but I’ll tag a few people anyway. People who aren’t tagged, feel free to do it if you wish. I tag you! Link me your post if you do, I’d love to read it! Feel free to ignore if you’re too busy or just don’t want to do it.
Thank you so much for reading and I’ll talk to you in my next post!
