Feature and Follow #2

Feature and Follow Friday is a meme, hosted by Parajunkee's View and Alison Can Read, that gives bloggers the opportunity to meet other bloggers, and gain followers :D

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

No, not really. I think I enjoy a book based on my mood. Like, if I'm depressed or heart-broken over some boy, I'll feel super bad if I read a romance novel, especially a contemporary one. If I'm happy, and I read the same book, I'm pretty sure I'll enjoy it more. However, I do pick my readings based on how I'm feeling, so this kind of situation is usually avoided :D

But tell me about you: do your reading habits change based on your mood? Answer in the comments, or leave me a link to your blog! :D


  1. Yay! First comment, hahaha.

    I'm not really affected by my mood when I'm choosing books, which is probably really weird...

    My FF

  2. I read whatever I feel like relevant of my mood, its more a case of what grabs my attention at the time.

  3. When choosing books, I suppose I take my mood into account but I tend to read certain genres based on the season. New follower! Happy reading! Come check out my site:

  4. When I'm feeling down I read books that cheer me up and when I'm happy...I guess I can read anything! :)

  5. Hi there!
    New follower here. :)
    Here's my FF/TGIF.
    Have a great day!

  6. My reading list changes with moods too... just not sure exactly how. Like... if I'm reading a long book that's not very exciting in a certain spot, if I'm in a blah mood I'll re-read something I know is great already. That always helps.

    Thanks for stopping by my blog.

  7. Hello, stopping by from the hop! New follower.
    Here's my site please follow back

    My mood doesn't reflect on what I read, If I'm feeling mad or sad or something I find it hard to concentrate sometimes.

  8. Hey, sometimes my mood does reflect my reading habits.

    I'm a new follower, here's my FF.

  9. I tend to plan out which books I am reading next, and being a bit of a control freak, I have to follow it, no matter what. ;) If I'm in a bit of a sour mood though, it can make getting into a book a little more difficult, but it never alters my opinion of the book in the end. If it's a good enough book, it will manage to bring a smile back to my face as has happened several times before. :)

  10. When I'm feeling down I read books that cheer me up and when I'm happy...I guess I can read anything! :) Good luck with your glasses! I also had to get glasses as I kept getting headaches when I was reading, and now I can read for hours! :)

  11. I'm not familiar with this series, but I'm totally intrigued by the mythology behind it. I especially love anything with a kick-butt female! Great review.
