Emoji Book | Tag

I am doing another tag and this time it’s the Emoji Book Tag. The point of this tag is to look at your five most recent or favourite emojis and associate a book with them.
I was tagged by Aldana from perfectioninbooks.
I am using some of my most used and perhaps favourite emojis. I tried to use some unconventional emojis and give a slightly different meaning to them, just to keep it interesting and original. It wasn’t that easy since I haven’t read many books yet, but I managed to find five of them who fit these emojis.


Emoji BooksLife of Pi by Yann Martel
I can hear you think that the books emoji is a rather obvious choice, but I associate that with school and I use it more than the actual school emoji. I read Life of Pi last year for my English course at school. This is the book that got me into reading again after a pretty long reading slump. It was a great book and I am happy I read it. I had seen the beautiful movie, but the book had even more amazing things to offer so absolutely worth a mention.


Emoji Tears of JoyRocket Raccoon vol. 1: A Chasing Tale by Skottie Young
I’m pretty sure everyone uses this emoji once in a while. It’s a go-to one for me at least. I decided to choose a comic with this particular emoji, because I haven’t really read any funny books yet. Rocket Raccoon vol. 1 was able to make me laugh out loud quite a few times so this one clearly deserved to be linked with this one. In my previous post I did a review of this one where I elaborate more on why I liked this so much. (Go read it here)

Rocket Raccoon vol. 1 | Comic Review

Rocket Raccoon vol. 1

Goodreads | Book Depository

When watching Guardians of the Galaxy, I had only read one of the comics. So afterwards, I wanted to submerge myself a bit more in these characters and their stories. Rocket Raccoon is a great standalone comic series that heavily relies on it’s art and wit. 

Skottie Young wrote and pencilled this series and he did an amazing job with it. He is known for his ‘Little Marvel’ variant covers, which are always funny and cute and even had their own series. Now he is creating a series called I Hate Fairyland for Image and he is continuing on Rocket Raccoon and Groot.
The art is bright and colourful and fits well with the story and the overall feel of this series. From issue #5 and on, Jake Parker takes over the illustration part from Young. Parker does a good job in maintaining Young’s art style.
I seriously cracked up when Rocket shot something and when it blew up the phrase Nailed It was written over the blast. It’s these little things that make this series unique.
