Q: Do your reading habits change based on your mood? Do you read a certain genre if you are feeling depressed or happy?
A: Yes, it does. I always choose my books and what genre they are in based on what I'm in the mood for at that time vs. something I've been wanting to read for months or have to read or what have you. If I'm not in the mood for it, I just don't find myself getting involved in the story at all. It's no longer fun for me.
Sometimes I want the light, fluffy, quick read that requires no emotional investment on my part. Sometimes I want more drama and angst in a book that requires a lot of emotional investment on my part (makes me cry, mad, sad, frustrated, etc.) Sometimes I want something epic so I go for dystopians, paranormal or urban fantasy. Sometimes I just want normal so I go for contemporary. Something mind "blowingly" romantic? Historical romance. And sometimes.... sometimes I just want some freakin adult content in my books :0)
