Emoji Book Tag

So I was watching some BookTube videos and I came across this tag. Basically, you have to describe and explain how you use your top 5 most used emojis and find a book that will go along with it.

It sounds fun, so without further ado, let’s get started!

1. The Laughcry Emoji (tears of joy)

Siy1dID

This emoji is overused  Siy1dID(see?) I use it on anything funny and basically everything. I should stop Siy1dID

Anyway, the book I chose for this emoji is The Diary of a Wimpy Kid.

Childhood memories 😀 This book is pretty funny, so it definitely made me ‘laughcry’

 

2. The Crying Emoji

I normally use this for extreme sadness and despair, especially during exams.

The book I chose for this is Allegiant. Obviously. SO MANY DEATHS 

 

3. The Clapping Emoji

I use this to congratulate someone or be like ‘yay’ and also go like *SLOW CLAP* 

The book I chose for this one is the Legend Series.

The characters are badass and cool and it’s action-packed. This series is SO GOOD it deserves some 

 

4. The Unamused Emoji

Obviously I use it when I’m unamused. Pretty self-explanatory.

The book that go along with  is The Maze Runner.

I didn’t really like this book. Everyone rave about it and I was like  not my cup of tea.

 

5. The ‘Full Moon with Face’ Emoji (molester moon)

This come in handy when I have nothing to say or when I feel like ‘meh’.

The Lost Hero or basically the whole Heroes of Olympus series go with this emoji. I really like Percy Jackson but I can’t keep up with stories with multi-perspective, so I’ve only read The Lost Hero and I gave up. I’d rather have Percy as the main character. I don’t hate the series, but I don’t like it either, so 

 

So that’s it! The emoji book tag! I’m going to tag everyone who has read this. Feel free to comment down below the link if you did it 😀

The Book Blogger Test Tag

Thank you covertoocover for tagging me! Their blog are awesome so go check them out!

1. What are your top three book pet hates?
a) Covers that do not match. They look weird on my bookshelf and are just not visually appealing
b) English books are always expensive in Hong Kong and the release dates are usually later than the rest of the world
c) People bending books so they can hold them easier. I hate that.

2. Describe your perfect reading spot.
I can pretty much read anywhere and I wouldn’t mind even if it’s standing in a crowded place with people buzzing around. So… no I can’t think of a perfect reading spot. Just give me a book then it’ll be fine.

3.Tell us 3 book confessions.
a) I prefer ebooks to paperbacks because paperbacks are REALLY expensive in Hong Kong (as I’ve said before) and ebooks are more environmentally friendly
b) I read multiple books simultaneously. I know I should be concentrating on one book at a time…
c) I’m into books for less than a year actually. I read the Harry Potter series when I was young but unlike the others, it didn’t get me into reading. Divergent did, and that’s how I ‘discover’ the wonderful world of dystopia.

4.When was the last time you cried during a book?
I’ve never cried during a book (call me soulless). Not even during tfios. And I’ve read it twice (double the saddness). I’m just not a crying person.

5. How many books are on your bedside table?
I don’t have a beside table… But the closest book to my bed is Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix.

6.What is your favorite snack to eat while you’re reading?
I don’t really eat while reading. But I do read while eating lunch or something.

7. Name three books you would recommend to anyone.
a) The Book Thief by Markus Zusak
b) Legend trilogy by Marie Lu
c) The Grisha trilogy by Leigh Bardugo

8.Show us a picture of your favorite shelf on your bookcase.

(I put my Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix back on the shelf so you guys can see the complete series)

9.Write how much books mean to you in three words.
Not YOLO anymore

10.What is your biggest reading secret?
When I was young I liked to flip to the ending and read it before I start because I want to know what will happen. Well now I won’t do that but I did spoil myself for Allegiant.

That’s it! Hope you guys enjoy it! I’m going to tag
