I discovered something about myself both times when I was pregnant—I couldn’t watch intense movies or read about sad news stories. I know hormones were definitely to blame for this. Pregnancy made me extra sensitive, not just physically, but emotionally, too. And how I felt—cautious, protective, and nurturing—influenced what I did.
This brings me to my question for you today: How does your mood affect your book choices?
I thought this was a timely subject to blog about because I know that for myself, our world’s current situation brings up a lot of emotions for me on a daily basis. Actually, make that an hourly basis. LOL. I can fluctuate between feeling thankful and content to sad and overwhelmed, and back again. Because of this, I find myself gravitating toward more lighthearted and funny books that will make me laugh.
How about you? What kind of books do you find yourself drawn to during this time? How does your mood influence your reading choices in general? I’m interested to hear your answers.
Giveaway: I’d like to give away a digital copy of a book from my backlist (boxed sets included). Two winners will be randomly chosen from the comments below. The giveaway will remain open until midnight on Sunday, May 3rd.
