BTT: Mood Reads
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?
I think that I am less likely to influence my reading by mood than I am to hAve my mood influenced by my reading. Since I was a little kid, intertwine an extracurricular interest in the things I read, getting involvedwin outside research based onboost things I read. Obviously with the Internet I can do this obsessively to my little geek heart’s content, especially when it comes to historical fiction or biography types.I tend to read as escape so doing really tend toward dark stuff when my life is dark but, hey, sometimes a nice, creepy murder mystery can warm up a drizzly day.
