#EmojiReads: Book Plots in 140 Characters or Less

Author Maris Kreizman of the literary blog Slaughterhouse 90210 sent out a tweet suggesting the publishing industry, instead of using cliched adjectives should allow blurbs to be done in emoji form. The publishing firm Random House took inspiration from this and created the hashtag #emojireads challenging Twitter users to come up with book plots with only emojis.
