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?
