Welcome to a new Tag Thursday! Today, it’s time for… THE EMOJI BOOK TAG!
I was tagged for this by the lovely Prabhleen from Booksarelife987. Thank you, Prabhleen!
This tag was originally created by InkBonesBooks on YouTube.
How does this tag work? Basically, you just select your most recent five emojis and match books to them. Also specify what you use the emojis for. Here we go!
I use this emoji either for things I think are really cute, or for when I love something so much I turn into a complete and total fangirl.
How does this correspond to books: This would have to be for a book that’s either one of my all-time favorites, or for a book I thought was really cute.
Simon vs the Homo Sapiens Agenda. Not only is it so unbelievably cute, but I’m also a complete Simon fangirl. I love, love, love this book.
Harry Potter. I’m a Harry Potter fangirl so I can’t have the fangirl emoji without Harry Potter. It’s one of my absolute all-time favorites. Though cute isn’t the main adjective I would use to describe this series, it definitely has some cute moments.
This emoji usually follows a snarky, sassy or sarcastic comment. I’m quite fluent in sarcasm, so this has been known to happen.
How does this correspond to books: Well, obviously this would correspond to my favorite snarky, sassy or deliciously sarcastic books or characters!
Umm, this would count for pretty much any shadowhunter book by Cassandra Clare. I mean, these characters basically embody the word snark and I love them all so much. And still, they don’t feel like copies of eachother because they’re all so gloriously snarky, sassy or sarcastic in their own way. Jace, Simon, Magnus, Will and Emma – I love them all <3
I use this whenever I am feeling extremely cool about something. Look at me, I’m so badass!
How does this correspond to books: How about my favorite bookish badass?
Well, it’s a tie between two of my favorite bookish badasses: Manon from the Throne of Glass series and Lila from the Shades of Magic series. They are both so cool and in difficult situations I have been known to think to myself “What would Manon/Lila do?” They wouldn’t necessarily make the right choice, but they would be super cool while doing it.
Feels. All the feels.
How does this correspond to books: Simply put: feels. All the feels. Well, I can think of two books I read in the past year that have made me cry my eyes out and made me feel all the feels:
More Happy Than Not by Adam Silvera and the Half Bad trilogy by Sally Green. They are both completely different as More Happy Than Not is a contemporary in which you the characters can get a procedure done to take away their unwanted memories and Half Bad is a fantasy featuring witches. But they both broke me completely. I do love them though.
Party time! I use this pretty much whenever there is something to celebrate.
How does this correspond to books: How about some of my most anticipated books? It will be a celebration when these fall into my hands. I know I will have a private dance party when both these books FINALLY end up in my greedy little hands:
(Oh, hey matching colors!)
A Conjuring of Light by V.E. Schwab is the final installment in the Shades of Magic series and I NEED IT LIKE NOW. I fell in love with the amazing worldbuilding and the great characters. I need me some more Kell, Lila, Rhy, Alucard and Holland!
The Love Interest by Cale Dietrich is a debut book which sounds like SO MUCH FUN! It’s about a spy school that trains teens to get close to girls, who they believe are of great future importance. To do this it trains the teens to become tropes: the nice guy next door or the brooding bad boy. Only problem: who doesn’t get the girl has to die. Nope, I lied, that’s not the only problem. Because what if the two boys end up developing feelings for eachother instead? I said it before and I’ll say it again: THIS SHIP, I AM ALREADY ON IT!
