Booking Through Thursday - Mood

btt button
Does your current mood affect your reading? Affect your choices? I know there are plenty of books I enjoy, but only if Im in a particular kind of mood–or books that can lift me out of a bad mood without fail. Surely I’m ot alone?

I am not sure if my mood affects me reading but I know it affects my writing reviews. I notice when maybe I am not in a good mood that my reviews are more negative.

Oh I know this. It's bad, ain't it? I hate when I'm actually stressed or otherwise moody and then I have to type out a review of a book I liked. I try to use positive vocab to cheer me up then. My BTT

I have had some experiences this past year, with books that I didn't really want to read or review, but I allowed the publicist/author to talk me into them.

It doesn't work out well! I end up feeling like the book is drudgery. So I need to follow my instincts with book choices (which is another way of following my moods).

My mood doesn't affect my reading that much. I usually stick to what I'm reading at the time.

I don't think I've ever had my mood affect my reviews, but I can certainly see how it might! I should pay more attention as I am writing them to see if I can notice that happening. Here's my BTT post!
