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:

And When She Was Good by Laura Lippman {Book Review}

What is the book about?

Follow Helen/Heloise from age 15 to 37, bouncing back and forth from present to present time reflecting on how she became a young worker in the sex industry during her twenties. You'll understand and see how she went from being a call girl to a madam who overlooks young call girls. 
You'll see how Heloise deals with her internal issues and her social problems that resulted her making less desirable choices and professions. 

What did I think of the book?

You normally don't read a lot of books about prostitution, call girls or any other such profession. After reading Lippman's story you can understand how one might get themselves in this situation. It's just one version of the many I am sure are out there but I really enjoyed this book. The lack of emotion in the character kind of shows how dead inside she must feel. Despite being treated poorly over and over her response is dead like. She handles everything with a grain of salt, which I guess I expected considering the working conditions and the choices she makes.
