Follow Friday #26


Follow Me Friday is a book meme hosted by Parajunkee's View and Alison Can Read. #FF is a blog hop that expands your blog following by a joint effort between bloggers. In order to join in the fun, all you need is well . . . A book blog :)

The question this week is:

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

My answer:

Yes and yes. If I'm happy, I usually try to read a light book with lots of love in it and no (or very little) tragic moments. And when I'm depressed, I don't feel like reading at all. That's the worst case scenario, tbh. So, I try to shun the depression away and read whatever would cheer me up. Sometimes I end up reading heavy books when I'm happy, but that's totally random.

Please leave links to your FF's, so I can stop by!! Oh, and if you're a new follower, let me know so I could return the favor!

Also, I want to remind you about the giveaway of "Pledged" that's going on at the moment. Please visit The Giveaways Page for more information and the Rafflecopter. 


  1. I think there aren't many depressed people who read a lot. When I'm sad I read less, but reading is a big part of the cheering up!

    1. You will be surprised. My hop around the blogs today tells a different story. Oh well..

  2. o.O I'm the complete opposite. I can read anything with any mood I'm in. My mood never really effects my reading. Thanks for stopping by my FF Following you back via GFC :)

    1. O.O You read depressing books while depressed? Doesn't that depress you even more?

  10. I read like crazy when I'm depressed. It is a total escape. That's if I'm not sleeping, of course - my other solution to depression. Happy to see you again, Vanya. And stop by at my blog and enter my Justice giveaway. You will love it. :)

  11. Fantastic answer! I agree with you that on depressing days, it really is trying to just find some escape in a good read (hopefully a giggly read would be nice, haha!) though when I'm happy, I'd be more willing to try depressing books o_o

    Have a great weekend!

  12. Yeah, sometimes I am too depressed to do anything. But I try to always read or do stuff I love to feel happier.

    Thanks for stopping by! New follower!

  13. I definitely see where you're coming from. If I get too depressed I just want to sleep all day and do nothing. Haha (:
    Thanks for stopping by my FF!

  16. Every once in a while I'm not in the mood to read at all. I kind-of like reading emotional books, though. I read a little of everything.

    Thanks for following and entering my giveaway!!! Following you, too. :)

    Happy Friday!

  17. Happy Friday! Hopping through!
    Have a great day, new follower!


  18. Same here! My problem is, though, that when I'm trying too hard to find a book that will cheer me up I slide directly into a reading slump and nothing works anymore :/
    My FF:

  19. When I find myself in a not-so-good mood, reading takes my mind off of things. I love escaping into a book for a while.

    Old follower. Thanks for stopping by!

  20. Thanks for following me! I think everybody gets in slumps every now-and-then. Sometimes I'm in such a fickle mood I can't even decide which book to start next! ha.

  21. Sometimes I don't want to read at either!! Thanks for hopping by!! New follower :)
