Could You Guess the Books from the Emojis? – Round III || The Answers!

Happy Friday, everyone!

As I already announced in my wrap-up, you’re getting a second post today! Did I intend to do this? Not really ๐Ÿ˜‚ I mean, I’m kind of busy enough as it is without double posting…

But, due to bad planning on my part, I did announce that I would give you guys my emoji quiz answers today, despite the fact that the first Friday of each month is usually reserved for my wrap-up. So there was no way around it: You’re getting both!

Anyway, thank you so much to everyone who took a stab at this! I hope you guys had fun in spite of the evilly difficult prompts I provided because I definitely had fun seeing everyone grasp at answers and despair over these! ๐Ÿ˜ˆ๐Ÿ˜ Although you guys actually did a really good job. Apart from Book #8, you managed to guess every single one of these, which I think is ample evidence that the blogosphere knows its literature!

But yeah, let’s not keep you in suspense any longer, but get to the answers you’ve all been waiting for!

Me featuring a Jane Austen novel in one of these posts was long overdue, so you were bound to get one at some point. This is, indeed, Pride and Prejudice! I’m glad the effort I put into depicting all the pining between Elizabeth and Mr Darcy in emoji form apparently came across ๐Ÿ˜

Book #2


Yes, this one is Holly Jackson’s A Good Girl’s Guide to Murder. Look at all the killing! And the dog! And the microphone that is supposed to represent podcast-making! This wasn’t that hard, was it?

Book #3


This one doesn’t just send out Life of Pi vibes – it is Life of Pi. I don’t think I know any other books where someone gets shipwrecked with a tiger, so if you’ve read the book or seen the movie, this one was probably pretty obvious.

Book #4

A red-haired protagonist, a mysterious golden cup, demons, someone getting turned into a rat, vampires, and smooching in a greenhouse? I also think the probability of this happening in another book is close to zero, so, yes, this is City of Bones by Cassandra Clare!

Book #5


Yeah, this was supposed to be Brandon Sanderson’s The Way of Kings. Bridges, deserts that were supposed to be plains, fighting, and storms was the best I could do, particularly since all the jumping around between different protagonists was super hard to represent in emoji form without everything getting extremely confusing ๐Ÿ˜… Which is why I decided to represent the different plotlines separately: 1๏ธโƒฃ was supposed to be for Dalinar and Adolin, 2๏ธโƒฃ for Kaladin, and 3๏ธโƒฃ for Shallan… Does that kind of make sense? Please tell me it kind of makes sense!

Book #6


I think this one was probably the most-guessed book in this quiz because yeah, if you’ve read it, it’s obvious. With that many pigs, this is clearly George Orwell’s Animal Farm! Also, I hope you appreciate my attempts to distinguish between the different pigs. Like, ๐Ÿ‡ซ๐Ÿ‡ท๐Ÿท=Napoleon and โ„๐Ÿท= Snowball. Genius, right? ๐Ÿ˜‡

Book #7


This is indeed The Bear and the Nightingale by Katherine Arden. It’s been a while since I last mentioned the Winternight Trilogy on this blog – like, probably at least a month ๐Ÿ˜‚ – so I just couldn’t resist sneaking it in! ๐Ÿฅฐ

Book #8


This is the only book that no one managed to guess – it was supposed to be Matt Haig’s The Midnight Library! I’m still convinced that that is very obvious, so I’m hoping the fact that no one recognized it just means you all haven’t read the book ๐Ÿ˜œ

Book #9

๐Ÿง”๐Ÿผ๐Ÿ‘จโ€๐Ÿซ๐Ÿซ๐Ÿ”ฌ๐Ÿ†˜๏ธโ˜€๏ธ๐Ÿฆ ๐Ÿ†˜๏ธ๐Ÿง”๐Ÿผโžก๏ธ๐Ÿ‘จโ€๐Ÿš€๐Ÿ›ฐโžก๏ธโญโ˜€๏ธ๐Ÿ›ฐ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿš€๐Ÿง”๐Ÿผ๐Ÿ•ท๐Ÿ’ฌ๐ŸŽต๐ŸŽต๐Ÿ’ฌ๐Ÿ•ท๐Ÿ†˜๏ธ๐Ÿชโ˜€๏ธ๐Ÿ†˜๏ธ๐Ÿงช๐Ÿ”ญ๐Ÿ”ฌ๐Ÿง”๐Ÿผ๐Ÿ•ทโžก๏ธ๐Ÿซ‚๐Ÿง”๐Ÿผ๐Ÿ•ทโžก๏ธ๐ŸŒŒ๐Ÿ•ท๐Ÿค’๐Ÿง”๐Ÿผโš•๐Ÿง”๐Ÿผ๐Ÿ•ทโ†ฉ๐Ÿ‘น๐Ÿฆ ๐Ÿง”๐Ÿผ๐Ÿ‘‹๐Ÿ•ท๐Ÿง”๐Ÿผโžก๏ธ๐ŸŒ๐Ÿ‘น๐Ÿฆ โฌ›๐Ÿ†˜๏ธ๐Ÿง”๐Ÿผ๐Ÿ’ญ๐Ÿ•ท๐Ÿš€๐Ÿ˜ฑ๐Ÿ’ญ๐Ÿง”๐Ÿผโžก๏ธ๐Ÿš€๐Ÿง”๐Ÿผ๐Ÿ•ทโžก๏ธ๐Ÿช

Yup, this is Andy Weir’s Project Hail Mary! I know there aren’t technically any spiders in it, but the spider emoji was the closest thing I could find to the emoji I needed! ๐Ÿ˜ฉ If you’ve read Project Hail Mary, please tell me that you know what I was going for and that my choice somewhat makes sense?

Book #10


It’s interesting that so many of you immediately recognized this as Shakespeare, but that only two of you got the correct play. Yes, it’s Othello. I mean, that’s my favorite Shakespeare play. Which one did you think I was going to choose? ๐Ÿ˜‚

Overall, this means that the final points stand thus:

1st Place: Line (15 Points)

All the effort you put into this definitely paid off! The only one you guessed wrong was Book #9 – I actually haven’t read Children of Time either and had no idea that book even existed… ๐Ÿ˜‚ Also, I’m extremely impressed that you were the only person who recognized A Good Girl’s Guide to Murder, despite not having read it. I know for a fact that some of your competitors have, so that is quite the achievement!

Also, I guess that means you get to recommend a book to me? (Though just so you know, if you have a book up your sleeve that you want me to read and haven’t told me about yet, I’m gonna be kind of offended. So no pressure ๐Ÿ˜œ)

2nd Place: Rachel (10 Points)

You were spot on about Pride and Prejudice, Life of Pi, and Animal Farm! And you were extremely close with Romeo and Juliet for #10 as well, but, unfortunately for you, I went with a different Shakespeare play ๐Ÿ˜› Still, you were the first person to guess that this was Shakespeare, so I think that merits an extra point! Frankenstein for #9 was unfortunately incorrect, however. Although I do love Frankenstein, so maybe, just maybe, I’ll have to sneak it into a future one of these… ๐Ÿ™ƒ

3rd Place: Meena (4 Points)

Both of your guesses were spot on! Since Rachel beat you to the finish line with Animal Farm, though, you only get the full three points for correctly identifying Project Hail Mary. However, that was the book most often mistaken for something else, so you should be extremely proud of being the only person to recognize it! ๐Ÿฅณ Apparently, you understand how my brain works ๐Ÿ˜‚

4th Place: Maria (2 Points)

I knew I could count on my fellow English scholars to recognize the classics ๐Ÿ˜‚ Unfortunately for you, several people beat you to these, but considering that you were a bit late to the party and swamped with exams this month, you actually did really well! A portion of that bookish honor is definitely yours ๐Ÿ˜‰

So yeah, that was really it for today! You’re definitely not getting a third post ๐Ÿ˜…

I hope everyone who participated had fun guessing along, and do let me know what you thought of my emoji interpretations now that you know which books they are referring to!

    This was awesome! I’m sort of mad I didn’t get the Pride and Prejudice one but it also makes sense because I’ve only read the “and zombies” one sooo yeah, didn’t get it, the emojis were missing zombies for me haha

    Also, very pleased I got Project Hail Mary especially since I haven’t read this one yet! I’m hoping to soon but so many books to read (and write), so little time!

    I know from your many pingbacks that this is your second post today but I had to read this one first obviously ๐Ÿ˜ And yay, I won! ๐Ÿฅณ๐Ÿฅฐ

    I knew Children of Time was farfetched because I was pretty sure you hadn’t read it but I figured I might as well attempt it ๐Ÿ˜„ But now you’re telling me the spider emojis weren’t meant to represent spiders? I feel tricked! As you know, I haven’t read Project Hail Mary yet, but I’m in a (very long) line at the library.

    I’m most impressed that I guessed City of Bones because I had basically given up on that until I noticed the rats. I was sure I had never read a book that introduced vampires midway through the book only to never dedicate time to them again ๐Ÿ˜‚

    And I was right about The Way of Kings! I didn’t catch on to your number system, but who was that red face with the nose (don’t know the name of that emoji) supposed to represent?

    I guess that I also need to confess that even though I haven’t read Life of Pi, I’ve seen the movie so maybe I should have got that one ๐Ÿ˜… I didn’t look at it all that hard because I saw all the animals and was sure I hadn’t read it.

    As for what book I want you to read? Well, I don’t actually have a favorite that I’ve just been keeping from you all this time ๐Ÿ˜„ But what if I tell you to read The Atlas Six so I’ll be able to talk to you about it soon? I know you said something about a book buying ban but if I’m “ordering” you to read it, you really can’t help it, can you? ๐Ÿ˜‰ However, if you’d rather not, Timekeeper is on Scribd ๐Ÿ˜

      I had a feeling this post might be the one you were anticipating more ๐Ÿ˜‚ I was seriously tempted to push it back a few days and only give you the wrap-up today, but figured you might hate me a bit too much if I did that ๐Ÿ˜ And also, I was dying to comment on some of your theories! ๐Ÿค—

      I’m kind of pleased your library has a long waitlist for Project Hail Mary, though – that means the book is getting the attention it deserves! ๐Ÿฅฐ Although I am, of course, also eagerly anticipating you reading it! We can talk about that spider emoji again then because I feel like it was very fitting and not THAT deceptive ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜‡

      And I don’t think I would have gotten City of Bones from the rat detail, so I’m impressed! I thought my attempts at representing the Mortal Cup and all the red-headed girls would probably be what gave it away, but I guess not ๐Ÿ˜‚

      As for Way of Kings, those red faces are meant to represent the Parshendi ๐Ÿ˜…๐Ÿ™ˆ I mean, what else am I supposed to use for humanoids with mottled black/white/red skin? There just aren’t enough emojis out there! It was either the red face, a normal human, or this: ๐Ÿ‘ฝ. Which would probably have been even more confusing ๐Ÿ˜‚

      I also think it’s fair you didn’t guess Life of Pi ๐Ÿ˜‰ The focus was on books, after all. And this way, other people at least still had a chance of providing a little competition ๐Ÿ˜

      As for you “ordering” me to read The Atlas Six – that is the best excuse I’ve ever heard ๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿคฃ So of course I’m going to take you up on that! If I order it now, it should be waiting for me when I get back to Germany, so let’s do this! (And, to validate you even more, Timekeeper is actually already bookmarked on Scribd, so I’m definitely reading that at some point, too ๐Ÿ™ƒ)

        Well, I would have understood if you had to push this post and was also confused last week when you said you would give us the answers in a week, but figured you would probably just put it all in one ๐Ÿ˜„

        I’m coming back to hold you accountable for that spider emoji then ๐Ÿง

        I don’t pay attention to the people when you make these but always try to find the emojis that stand out, the ones not every book would have. So a cup could be someone winning something which could be anything but rats and vampires? That narrows it down ๐Ÿ˜‚

        Ooooh, the Parshendi! Okay, I get it ๐Ÿ˜‚ I was thinking it looked like a devil of some kind and you might be trying to represent an evil high prince or something (I don’t remember the beginning to The Way of Kings) ๐Ÿ˜…

        I’m only happy to take the blame for you buying The Atlas Six ๐Ÿ˜‚ I just don’t know if it’s dangerous to have you read a book I haven’t read myself yet. I’ll be starting it next week (I hope) but what if it’s not good?

          Like, I said, it was all bad planning! Or no planning at all, if I’m being completely honest… ๐Ÿคฃ When I posted last week, I was in more of a “let’s just make it through the day and get everything ready you need for tomorrow” mindset, so I didn’t even realize June was almost here! And then when I did, I actually did briefly consider squeezing everything into one post but quickly realized that a) the inconsistency in the structure of my wrap-ups would annoy me to no end and b) I wouldn’t be able to get everything written in time for Friday morning anyway… So I decided to just give you two posts instead and finish writing the second one on the train home, which is also why you had to wait for several hours for this one ๐Ÿ™ƒ (In case it wasn’t already clear, I really wasn’t joking when I said I wrote my posts at the very last possible moment ๐Ÿ˜…๐Ÿ˜‚)

          Also, if The Atlas Six isn’t good, then I suppose we’ll at least have someone to rant about it with. Because that book had better be good!!! ๐Ÿ˜ซ If it ends up being yet another let-down after all those raving reviews, I’m going to be extremely upset!! Particularly since it’s dark academia and I can’t recall ever having hated anything in that genre ๐Ÿฅฐ But I suppose we’ll just have to see… I should have my copy by Wednesday and intend to start reading immediately, since there’s no guarantee I will get to anything once my break is over – so your timing looks great to me! ๐Ÿค—

            The Atlas Six has a lot of positive reviews, that’s true. However, since the moment I added it to my TBR I’ve been seeing more people not liking it ๐Ÿ˜ฌ So I think my expectations have gone down to a more reasonable level ๐Ÿ˜… Anyway, since we’ll be reading it at the same time, should we set up a casual Storygraph buddy read?

THAT IS A TRAVESTY! ๐Ÿ˜œ I suppose I’ll just have to do this again sometime with more books you’ve read, so that you can reclaim at least a bit of your bookish honor…

      You definitely should be proud! After all, plenty of people with non-fried brains didn’t even attempt it! ๐Ÿ˜‚

      And I’ll take your frustration over City of Bones as a compliment because I guess that means you actually do find it recognizable now that you know what it’s supposed to represent ๐Ÿ˜‡ After a while, I felt like I was typing so many red-headed girl emojis that I no longer had a clue whether people would be able to understand any of this… ๐Ÿคฃ

      Hahaha, I’m glad they at least make sense now that you know what they are, though! ๐Ÿคฃ And as for sneaking in an easy one in my next quiz – you’ll just have to wait and see… Although I’d actually argue that if you want that bookish honor, you’ll have to work for it at least a little bit!I ๐Ÿ˜œ

    Wow these were hard! For that spider one I was thinking huh?!?!
    I am reading Pride and Prejudice right now, so one I found out what those meant then I look at it and was like: “Yeppers, that pretty much sums up the book.” I love the little:๐Ÿง”โ€โ™‚๏ธ๐Ÿšซ๐Ÿ’ƒ. That was hilarious!
