Question of the Week:

Do you have a go to genre when you're happy, sad, or angry?

suggested by:
by Take Me Away

My Answer
I always have a genre I resort to when I'm feeling a certain mood.

Lately I've been reading a lot of books about death and reapers. I guess it's the holiday blues that have created this desire.

When I'm happy, I choose romances, and feel good books.

Of course when I'm sad, I tend to read the more depressing books, or the ones that make me tear up, even if they're the mushy romances.

It would make sense that if you're feeling sad, you'd choose an uplifting feel good book, but not me. I guess I like to soak in my misery and that includes my reading style.

How do you choose your books based on your mood?

Next Week's Question:

What books did you give other people this holiday season? -

    Sometimes, when I'm sad, I reread or choose Children's! Though I understand what you said about reading sad and depressing books when you're sad, I sometimes do that too! ;P Honestly, it usually doesn't matter what mood I'm in and what genre it is, it's about the book. If it's a good book, I can usually go right into it! :)

    I'm the same way. I think as humans we need commiseration, so we match our entertainment to our moods. That way, we can kind of diffuse our feelings. Thanks for stopping by my blog. Now following you via GFC, Bloglovin' and G+. :D

    Another Etsy seller! I work with my aunt's on hers for Beth's Wine Designs. It's my other job lol

    It helps to get the overwhelming emotions out of your system, so when you're sad you read depressing or overly romantic things so you can move on. I do that often when I'm feeling down from my dystopian high.

    That's funny because this time last year I was on the whole death and reapers binge. I read so much of it I haven't read one since...but now that you reminded me, I'm kinda feelin it now :) Jessi The Book Cove

    That makes sense, reading about other people dealing with their sadness takes your mind off your own, and maybe gives a little help in dealing with it :) New Bloglovin' Follower! Thanks for stopping by!
