Hey Hey! Welcome to another Random Rants and Rambling; where the topics are random but the vents are not! (wow that was corny)
SO ANYWAY, now that I’ve recovered from that corny statement, I want to revisit mood reading. Back in May of last year, I had a similar discussion about being a mood reader, and I asked all of YOU if you were. At that time, I was pretty adamant that I am in fact, not a mood reader. Like, at all. I could make a schedule based on release date or… whatever else, and just pick up the book and read it without any hiccups.
Now? Well… I believe I am slowly developing into being a mood reader. Here’s why.
No seriously. I was reading the same 2 books for 2 weeks straight. Which is so unlike me it’s unreal. It’s a struggle to finish anything lately, it’s mind-boggling.
(also, still haven’t finished those books yet)
My time is limited. I feel like I’m SO busy these days with kids, work, and so many other life things, I don’t have has much time to read (i.e. I’M FREAKING TIRED). And don’t feel like reading.I repeat. I don’t feel like reading. WHAT EVEN.
Books I was excited to read months/weeks/days ago, no longer hold interest. Which sucks, because now I feel even worse if I don’t get a book read. Which in turn, frustrates me because I don’t want to feel bad about NOT READING. It’s a CYCLE.
Since closing After Hours, I haven’t read as many new adult or adult books, which makes me wonder:
was I “force reading” to keep content fresh over there?
am I in a funk now because I am only reading YA??
is there something legit wrong with me that I spend so much time thinking about this!?
- Are you a mood reader? If yes, have you always been a mood reader?
- How do you decide what to pick up, when to call it quits or when to power through a book?
