Book Feels System

It can sometimes be difficult for me to put into words the emotions a book can ignite so the following emoticons are here to help.  I appreciate any story that promotes a passionate response, whether it is adoration or downright disgust.  If you can move me, good job.

A drooling good time – Like Pavlov’s dogs I instantly salivate when a fresh idea and a new twist on an old concept is presented before me.

 Meh – This book was…you know…just meh.  It didn’t make me feel anything.  Can I have some ice cream now?

  SIGH – Well, that was a feel good good story.  I have renewed faith in the human race.

MY MIND IS BLOWN – I can never be the same again after reading this.  Cool concepts, new ideas, revolutionary thought.  Mind alteration in progress.

 My heart hurts – This book made me sad.  I think I might cry.  Poor little book, poor little story and poor characters in it.

 GOD SAVE MY SOUL – I have read it and I am now scared for my sanity.  If the author isn’t after my soul then the characters certainly are.

So gross – This ain’t for the faint of heart.  Get ready for some queasy, bloody story telling.

 OMG – MOST AMAZING BOOK EVER!!!  WHY DID IT HAVE TO END?!?!  I WANT TO BE THIS BOOK!!!!  I WISH THIS WAS REAL!!!!  I WANT TO MARRY THIS BOOK AND TALK ABOUT IT ALL THE TIME!!!!

Huh? – Confusion is setting in.  Why did that character do that?  Wait, wasn’t that character doing something else?  What is going on?  Why am I reading this book?

DEVASTATED – This type of despair typically sets in when a character I love dies or the story is just so amazing I don’t want it to end – but then it does and I don’t know if I can go on.

 Gimme a break – Really?  I’m supposed to care about this story?  Maybe I would if the outdated and unoriginal stereotypes in this story didn’t exist.

 F*@#ING HILARIOUS! – It made me laugh.  Laughter is the best medicine.  I am healed.

BORING! – Even the story went home to take a nap it was so bored.

WTF!?!? – Seriously?!  F*@$ off!  I’ve only thrown a book across the room in anger once.  Since then I’ve come close.  There are just stories out there that piss you right off.

I’ve got a crush – As far as stories go, you’re pretty cute.  I like you.  Do you like me?

 DOH! – This book tricked me into reading it.  The story started off good, it made me care and then it just walked out on me.  Jerk.

A good yarr-n! – Get it?  Yarr!?  Seriously though, it’s a good story.  Fun, entertaining and that’s about it.

  3. Omgoodness – I love these!!! and your descriptors are fun, too. Please read and rate my books. Please. 😀 Looking for readers. Carley

  4. These are just perfect!!! I was wondering if it would be alright if I used them and gave you credit? Because really, these are just…. the best.

    • If you want to use the icons feel free as they don’t belong to me (I am currently in the phase of making my own) but please credit bad blood on deviant art as they belong to that artist. As for the idea, sure go ahead, a credit would be awesome! It’s a fun way to review.
