Feature & Follow Friday: August 3rd



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

I definitely have sub-genres or styles that appeal based on mood.  I'll go for a kick-ass girl book when I need a pick-me-up or I'm working hard on something.  Fairies are generally escapism.  Vampires and scarier stuff appeals when I'm more down, and I go for Sci-Fi less when I'm doing academic stuff and more when I'm doing creative stuff.

  2. Wow, your mood-reading habits are almost exactly the same as mine! Especially the part about nthe kick-ass heroines - I feel like a very snarky, confident character can be really empowering :)
