Discussion Post #4 Mood Readers?

I am a big mood reader. The book that may be hot right now for some may not be for me simply because I am a huge mood reader. Now, my guilty pleasure is paranormal and paranormal romance. I am always in a mood for that because those types of genres have always been my escape. But for some reason I can't get on the bandwagon when it comes to certain book types because they may not be what I am looking for at the moment.

As of right now I am in the mood for middle grade fiction and high fantasy. I hardly ever read middle grade fiction so that is way out of my comfort zone. I don't even know how I got in that mood anyway. High fiction has always been the type of books that I stay away from because they have always just intimidated me.

Reading has always been my escape. I find that if I am in a bad or kind of depressing mood I go more towards paranormal, dark, and inviting type books. Books that are way from reality because obviously I want to get away from whatever it is that I'm going through. Whenever I'm in a fairly good mood I go towards New Adult contemporary. I guess I can relate more to it because of the age range and the situations that the characters go through with life and relationships in general.

Whenever I'm looking to be inspired I tend to go to biographies or nonfiction. The chances of me reading nonfiction are 1 out of 10. That might be sad because there are some really good nonfiction books out there.

The changes of the moods could give someone a whiplash as well. One minute I may want science fiction and the next I may want a really sappy lovey dovey romance. Its crazy. But I can't help it LOL.

Are any of you guys mood readers? What type of genres do you tend to go to according to your moods?

Interview Questions
1.) What would you say is your interesting writing quirk?
I’m not sure if you could call it an interesting writing quirk, but I have to listen to music when I write because it helps me concentrate.
It is quite common for me to go to my Bjork, Limp Bizkit, NIN or Machine Head collections if I need inspiration for a fight scene or to my Ellie Goulding, Evanescence and Eurythmics selections to help me create a magical or romantic passage.
If I do not have music on, I can get distracted very easily and it would take me longer to complete the task at hand.

Book Review: Rarity from the Hollow by Robert Eggleton

( I received this ebook by the author in exchange for an honest review)

Goodreads Summary: Lacy Dawn's father relives the Gulf War, her mother's teeth are rotting out, and her best friend is murdered by the meanest daddy on Earth. Life in the hollow is hard. She has one advantage -- an android was inserted into her life and is working with her to cure her parents. But, he wants something in exchange. It's up to her to save the Universe. Lacy Dawn doesn't mind saving the universe, but her family and friends come first.

Rarity from the Hollow is adult literary science fiction filled with tragedy, comedy and satire.

This book was written very well and the writing was very vivid. This was not a simple book and it took me a minute to get into it. It had a sci-fi feel to it but it transitions into a more realistic atmosphere. This touches on some subjects on child abuse and as well as victims that suffer from PTSD and domestic violence. All of this is from the perspective ele…

Book Review: Class of '59 by John Heldt

(I received this ebook by the author in exchange for an honest review)
Goodreads summary: When Mary Beth McIntire settles into a vacation house on June 2, 2017, she anticipates a quiet morning with coffee. Then she hears a noise, peers out a window, and spots a man in 1950s attire standing in the backyard. She panics when the trespasser sees her and enters the house though a door to the basement. She questions her sanity when she cannot find him.

In the same house on March 21, 1959, Mark Ryan finds a letter. Written by the mansion’s original owner in 1900, the letter describes a basement chamber, mysterious crystals, and a formula for time travel. Driven by curiosity, Mark tests the formula twice. On his second trip to 2017, he encounters a beautiful stranger. He meets the woman in the window.

Within hours, Mary Beth and Mark share their secret with her sister and his brother and begin a journey that takes them from the present day to the age of sock hops, drive-ins, and jukeboxes. In CL…
