Follow Friday!

Friday, August 3, 2012

I've decided to do a Follow Friday!



 

Here's this week's question:

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

In general, my reading habits are random. I'm not really affected by my moods, but definitely if I'm feeling frustrated, I probably won't read. (I feel like that's not the answer that the question was asking for...) I tend to write more rather than read when I'm feeling annoyed or frustrated.


I don't limit myself to a certain genre in general, so no, I don't read a certain genre when I'm feeling depressed or happy. I just read whatever is nearby.... #lazy


By the way, there will be a girl series post later today, so don't worry! I'm still writing them!

  2. Sometimes what I have nearby I'm not satisfied by... I'm a little ADHD when it comes to books :-)

  4. I frequently write rather than read when I am frustrated as well. Reading, I feel, is a way of distracting oneself from his problems, while writing is a way of solving them.

    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!

    1. Thanks for stopping by! :D

      Writing, I suppose, can solve a problem, but I think it's more about figuring out your emotions, because most of the time, there isn't a solution... But definitely, reading does distract oneself from problems!

  5. I know, it's easier writing than reading when I'm frustrated. But I still read when I'm frustrated, simply because I love reading too much to let it go for too long.

    Thanks for stopping by! Following you back via Tumblr. (I don't have goodreads or twitter, sorry. And I don't know where the GFC thingy is.)

    1. Same! I think it depends on how frustrated I am. If it's only a little, I will read. If it's a lot, I will write.

      It's okay! I think GFC doesn't work on my template since it's not a Dynamic View or something... But if you want to, you can just add my link to your blogger reading list on the homepage of blogger, when you log in! :)

  6. Haha - I always thought it was weird when people would say they read a certain genre of books when they're angry or frustrated. I just wouldn't be able to read feeling that way either! But reading what's nearby is a good way to make sure you tackle through those unread books...

    1. I agree! It's weird to feel angry and the character's angry too, I think.

      Hahaha, I suppose. My TBR pile is pretty big at the moment. *sigh*
