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?
Interesting question! I guess I hadn’t thought about it consciously, but now that I am thinking about it, I’d have to say, Yes it does!
As I’ve stated before, my reading tends to be on the fluffy side, mystery series side. But that said, when I go to the library to get a stack, I try to mix it up – some dark, some light, and I’ll pick my book based on what I may need at the time. So, if I’m feeling overwhelmed, I’ll go for the fluff. And I do think I’ve sabotaged my reading in the past, when I wasn’t in the right mood.
Looking forward to seeing what others have to say!
