This week's question is: Do you have a go to genre when you’re happy, sad, or angry? – via Take Me Away…


MY ANSWER: Not really. I've kind of broadened my paranormal only genre over the past year or two! Now I read some dystopians and what I call "thrillers" such as Jennifer Armentrout's Don't Look Back--that kind of real life scary read where the scary is more likely to happen in real life!

Anywho! I pretty much just read whatever when I'm in one of those moods. Of course, if I am too "emotional" I might not be in the right frame of mind to read. I wouldn't enjoy myself if I was too emotionally at the moment. But there really is no go to read or go to genre! I have wayyyy too many books in my TBR Mountain of Doom that I can't be overly selective with them. I would really love to be able to read all these books before I die in some odd decades...but with the amount I add every year...I am beginning to wonder if that's even a possibility! LOL!

  2. I know I read to reflect the mood I am in, but I think it normally means..am I in the mood for cozy, thriller, romance, YA..lol. I never really thought about am I happy, sad, angry. :)

  3. I tend to read based on my moods. As a result, my TBR is often ignored.

  4. Actually, now you say it, that's true of me too. If I'm too emotional, I have a hard time reading as well. Good point. Thanks for stopping by my blog and have Merry Christmas! :D

  5. I sympathize with the huge TBR pile! I'm not sure I'll finish mine before the reaper comes for me either! I do read certain types of books depending on my mood, especially if I'm sad I like something that's light and a little funny. Here's my F&F. Old follower! Happy Holidays! :-)

  6. I'm the same. I'm not a mood reader but if I am feeling too emotional then it won't matter what I'm reading. I usually take those opportunities to reread something that I love just to get back into the reading habit. Sometimes even just a little Harry Potter is all it takes.

  7. I'm quite the opposite, in terms of emotion. When I'm feeling emotional, I like to be absorbed into a book and get lost. Books are the sand to my ostrich! LOL

  8. I've really broadened my reading genres too. I've slowly gotten into more dystopian. When I find ones I really like then I get really into them. But that's not a genre that I can readily go to and enjoy most of what I read. I'd say that those and paranormals are my "whatever" mood genres. I can read those any time anywhere.

  9. I usually pick books depending on my mood. I find it hard to read a book that is opposite of my mood.
