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 Maybe I would if the outdated and unoriginal stereotypes in this story didn’t exist.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.
