Booking Through Thursday is a weekly bookish meme about (mostly) books and reading.

Mood Reading:
Does your current mood affect your reading? Affect your choices? I know there are plenty of books I enjoy, but only if Im in a particular kind of mood–or books that can lift me out of a bad mood without fail. Surely I’m ot alone?

Hmm... I'm sure my mood affects my book choices, but not always the same. Sometimes when I'm in a bad mood, I want to read a sad book, and other times (same mood) something to cheer me up or distract me. However, that sometimes makes i pretty hard to stick to something like a list or schedule -- I'm so undisciplined! I always try to catch up, but there are also so many new books coming out that interest me. It's a nightmare. x)

And of course I want the books I read to affect me, but when they don't as I hoped, I admit I get pretty pissy at the book, thus affecting my reading of the rest of it. Then, reading under pressure is the worst, even if it's something good. That's why I don't do too much blog tours or review requests that have a date stamp on them. I always manage to kinda do them last minute, and that's just not how it should be. *sigh*

Any suggestions to help me straighten out my terrible reading habits? x)

  1. I am always changing my schedule to read books. Technically I am reading 7 books at a time. The seven books are grouped into 7 genre. 1 For Fun, Non-fiction, Arcs, Classics, Ebook, Easy Read (children picture books), and sword and laser book club pick.
    What I do is take the first book in the for fun genre (which right now is Clash of Kings by George R. R. Martin) I read at least 100 pages. Then I move to the next genre Non Fiction and read 100 pages and so on.

    You probably wouldn't want to do what I do. I am sure I confuse people with my schedule.

  2. While in grad school reading under pressure was almost normal. I didn't know how I passed, lol! You're right. It's good if the book we read affects us. That's some bonus, at least in my books.
