Follow Friday (6)

Feature & Follow Friday is a weekly blog hop hosted by Parajunkee's View and Alison Can Read.

Q: Do your reading habits change based on your mood? Do you read a certain genre if you are feeling depressed or happy?

I often tend to do this. If I'm feeling sad, I tend to read chic-lit or something bright and cheery (maybe even funny) to brighten my mood. I guess my reading changes based on what I'm in the mood for. For example, if I'm in the mood for something that will scare me silly, I'd read a horror book, or if I'm in the mood for some suspense, I'd read a crime book or something hardboiled.

Happy Friday!

Louise is an English student who is currently hiding in a fort made out of DC books. When she's not doing responsible things, reading, or blogging, she can be found watching movies or TV, playing video games, slowly going deaf from listening to really loud music, or making bad jokes on Twitter. She loves Muppets, shoes, and plushies and is always on the lookout for the next best polish in the perfect shade of blue. She hopes to be a Gothic/vampire author in the future and bring her own brand of vampire to life (no, they don't sparkle).

    You probably have already, but when you're in that suspenseful mood, check out the Millennium trilogy by Stieg Larsson. It's phenomenal.

    P.S: I'm a new follower! Don't be afraid to fearlessly visit my "Frivolously Follow Me this Friday!" post. Many thanks to you!
