Booking Through Thursday is a weekly meme about (mostly) books and reading!
This week’s question: Does your current mood affect your reading? Affect your choices? I know there are plenty of books I enjoy, but only if I’m in a particular kind of mood–or books that can lift me out of a bad mood without fail. Surely I’m not alone?
My response: Sorta. I don’t typically read any type of sad, realistic, or depressing book. EVER. (Unless we’re talking dystopian and then I’m all in.)It’s just not my style and I’m NEVER in the mood to read those genres or titles that feature a lot of those elements. I’m always reading fantasy-type books because real-world settings just irritate me- I have enough drama and reality in my own life, thank you very much!
I will admit: every once in awhile I will read a sad book if I need a good cry. It happens very rarely.
On the whole, I have to be in a mood to read certain books but I have completely cut out various types of books from my reading diet because I’m never in the mood to read them. 😉
