Guys, today is Esther Day. I love you all. Really, I do. I never expected to make real life friends through blogging, but now I can't imagine that I won't meet even more awesome people (as in quantity, better quality isn't possible). DFTBA.
When a book goes “viral” (Hunger Games, Fifty Shades, Twilight), do you rush out to read it like everyone else, even if it’s not in your typical genre?Honestly, I've never even thought about this before. When a book interests me, I pick it up. When it doesn't... I don't. I picked up Hunger Games and Twilight long before they went "viral" and have no intention of picking up Fifty Shades, because I don't think it will be half as entertaining as the reviews of it that I've read. But, if a book goes viral that isn't my typical genre, but that does pique my interest, I will usually give it a try.
Do your reading habits change based on your mood? Do you read a certain genre if you are feeling depressed or happy?
Absolutely. Sometimes, when I'm depressed, I need a book that will help me cry for a reason different from the one that is making me depressed. Other times, I need a book that will cheer me up. Then, when I'm in a good mood, sometimes I like to laugh and sometimes I like to be swept up in adventure or romance. I definitely need to be in the right mood for certain books, but it's also one of those things that is very hard to define. I'll know it when I see it and all that.
