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!
Oh thanks for doing this❤️ I never really use the party emoji! I just use it to wish happy birthday to someone? Great picks! And I am really happy to see the Shadowhunter books? Emma is a QUEEN. Plus now I have to read More Happy Than Not. So many people rave about it!
Of course, thank you for tagging me <3 Haha, yes I use any excuse to use the party emoji 😉 And I can't think about snark or sass without thinking about Shadowhunters anymore 🙂 More Happy Than Not is sooo good! It's a tough book to get through, but it's so beautiful as well!
Love this idea! Great choices and use of emoji’s 😀
Thanks so much 🙂
I love love LOVE all of your choices, they are perfect! Simon is such a good choice for the hearts emoji, that book was just so cute and made me feel so warm inside. Also, all the stars for the ADSOM series, I loved this so much! And all the tears for More Happy Than Not. That book destroyed me.
I can’t wait for The Love Interest, that book sounds SO GOOD.
Haha, thank you Marie! Simon really embodies the hjeart-eyes emoji for me, I love it so much <3 The ADSOM series is soo good, I can't wait for ACOL 🙂 And More Happy Than Not broke me in a million pieces, but I can't stop recommending it 🙂 The Love Interest sounds so good, I have high hopes!
I’ve seen this one doing the rounds and I have been tagged in it – I’m hoping to find the time to give it a go this week – it looks like such fun!
I love that you yes the party emoji so often and that you have the chance to celebrate so much. That’s awesome! ??
Also I love your pucks – so many great reads here. I really need to try that Schwab.
Oh, if you have the time this is really a fun tag to do 🙂 And yes, haha, I use pretty much every excuse to use the party emoji (it’s Friday, having pizza for lunch, new episode of my fave show,…) 😉 Definitely recommend Schwab!
I totally agree with the Snarky emoji!!! And that reminded me that I need to watch this week’s episode of Shadowhunters LOL. I haven’t read the other books you showed, except for ToG. I really want to read ADSOM!
Yes, nothing says snarky as well as a Shadowhunter 🙂 Oh, hope you’ll enjoy ADSOM!
I want to read Half Bad and More Happy Than Not really badly! They sound amazing and i’ve heard fantastic things about them in the community!
I absolutely ADORED both of them, so I hope you’ll enjoy them too 🙂
This looks like a LOT of fun (might have to put it together just for fun). I’ve look at the “Half Bad” books but never read them. They do sound interesting though, so I’m glad to see them under your “All the Feels” (aka crying) emoji. 🙂
It is a fun tag! I’d love to see your answers if you’re doing this tag. The Half Bad books definitely gave me all the feels (aka a lot of crying) 😉
