Swoon Books... Retold in Emojis!

Have you ever been asked to describe a particular book in just a few sentences? It sounds easy, but it’s actually a pretty difficult thing to do. How do you describe the plot of a book, what makes it unique, your favorite parts, which character you’re crushing on, and so on in just a few sentences? I’ve been known to give long-winded answers that usually end up with me babbling on about how AMAZING a certain book is without clearly describing it, and I’m sure I’m not alone. Sometimes words just don’t get your enthusiasm and love for a book across as clearly as you’d like, which is where emojis come in.

Who doesn’t love emojis? They’re cute and easy to use and they add an extra element of fun to your texts or email exchanges. From engagement rings to birthday balloons, shimmering hearts to crystal balls and everything in between, you can convey just about any feeling, message or love for a particular person or thing through emojis. So we thought it would be fun to use them to describe a few Swoon Reads titles. Check them out below!
