Booking Through Moods

btt button

Do you find that your mood affects the things you read? Like, if you’re in a bad mood, do you tend to indulge in reading that will support it or do you try to read things that will cheer you up? Do you pick different types of books on dreary, rainy days than you do on bright sunny ones?

For that matter, does your mood color what you’re reading, so that a funny book isn’t so funny or a serious one not so deep?

I never thought of myself as a mood reader but lately I find I am one. I read more of romances when I am in a reading slump. It gets me back to reading. I pick up graphic novels when I want a light read. I choose heavy stuff when I am travelling. It keeps me totally hooked.

I'm the opposite when it comes to travelling - I always choose lighter books as I rarely get the chance to concentrate on what I'm reading.

My BTT post is here and I'm also holding a giveaway here :)

Mood doesn't influence what I am reading at the time.

I always keep a big TBR pile because my mood definitely steers me toward different books. I tend to read light hearted books when I travel because I have trouble concentrating when there are things going on around me.
