Q: Do your reading habits change based on your mood? Do you read a certain genre if you are feeling depressed or happy?

Yes, my reading habits can definitely be affected by my mood. For example, if I'm feeling in a funk, I'll try to pick up a book that will make me laugh such as a novel by Janet Evanovich or Sophie Kinsella. Romances also can help get me out of a bad mood with a few favorite authors including Catherine Coulter and Jude Deveraux. If I'm happy, I can usually tackle any genre including horror books or books that I know will make me cry. For instance, I would never read Jodi Picoult unless I'm in a good mood.

  1. Seeing lots of different answers now! I actually just read whatever paranormal! Some people are saying they turn to this genre when they feel like this or that!

  2. Great answer! I am pretty fickle sometimes, and always crave something new, part of why I became a reviewer!

  5. Old Follower!

    Yes, my reading habits tend to change. When I'm really mad or upset, I'll tend to just lay on the couch and read a book or two in that day.
