As I finished reading the latest book (A Court of Thorns and Roses) I realized, all books I devour are total victims to my mood. I think if I would have read it when I was in a different mood I would have liked it more. Normally I know what I am in the mood for.
If I want quests and magic I grab a fantasy.
If I think I’m in the mood for romance, then I read romance.
If I’m in the mood for action and a touch of comedy I tend to grab urban fantasy.
But what about when I just don’t know what I’m feeling like? That’s usually when I’m feeling blah!
THE DANGER ZONE!
At times like those it’s quite possible nothing will satisfy me. Does that stop me from reading? Of course not! Reading is like eating…a daily necessity for me.
But I feel sorry for anything I read during times like those. Because it’s likely I’m generally feeling blah and that will bleed over into the book. It makes me wonder if I’d read the same book at any other time would I rate it higher and have enjoyed it more?
What do you folks think? Are the books you read sometimes victims to your blah moods?
