BTT: Mood Reading

This weeks Booking Through Thursday question is:

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?

My Response:

My mood definitely affects the way I read more so than the things I read. If I'm in a happy mood I tend to read two books in a week, or more, depending upon the book.  If I'm feeling a bit down, or in my case depressed, then I don't tend to read at all. This in itself annoys me, as I have always enjoyed reading.

If I do manage to read a book, during a depressive state, then they tend to be dark, gruesome books. So thats why I dont tend to read when I'm in that mind set.


  1. I think I can definitely affect my mood by my book choices...and conversely, my mood can affect my choices.

  2. Mood doesn't influence my reading.

  3. I've never really noticed mood affecting my reading...
