This week's question is:
Do your reading habits change based on your mood? Do you read a certain genre if you are feeling depressed or happy?
Definitely. It's the opposite of what you'd expect. When I'm sad, I read horror books or dark fantasy. Like Stephen King. Because then I realize life's good. Hey, I don't have a serial killer chasing after me with an axe. That mean's life's pretty good. No murderous ghosts? I'm swell. No vampires or werewolves or vamperwolf thingie attacking me. That's a cause for celebration.
When I'm happy, I read romance or young adult or fantasy because then I appreciate the warm, fuzzy bits all the more. Or the beautiful parts. If I'm sad, that's not happening. It's a cookie dough on the spoon and ax-wielding murderer kind of night.
But usually I don't even know what book mood I'm in. I just kinda go with it, start reading a book, and I might have to change midsentence.
