Sunday Confessions February 27, 2011

This is a weekly meme started by yours truly as a way to get to share a bit about myself and also learning more about you. Sometimes its about books and book related topics and sometimes it's not. This is all in good fun and I would love it if you would participate. 

Are you a moody reader?

I have to admit that I am.  I would love to say I can pick up any book at any time and read it but I can't. If there is one book or genre in particular that I am jonesing to read, no other book will do until I've read it.  If I try to read another book, I don't find it interesting or entertaining. This doesn't happen to me all the time but it does happen every few months.  So what about you? 

*If you answer this question on your own blog, please leave a link in the comments so I can come visit.


  1. I'm not very moody....yet. haha.

  2. I don't think I'm a moody reader...! I agree about trying to read a book when I'm thinking about another book!

    Happy Sunday!

  3. I try to read a lot of different genres, but always come back to YA or historical fiction. But I'm not really moody in that sense.

    However, I am moody when it comes to actually reading. If I can't get into a book by the first two chapters, I put it down and don't come back to it in a few months. It really bothers me when a book looks really good, but I just can't get into it.

  4. Hi - this is my first time doing this one, I saw Christy post her link on Twitter and saw the question and just had to join this one.

    I'm totally a moody reader! I get in book funks, genre funks, bad moods when I can't read new books and have to read old ones - I'm awful, lol.

  5. @Zakiya, The Book Pages, Christy, and Barbara, Thanks for leaving your link, I'll be by to visit your blogs :D
    @Jenn, I read different genres too. I think that helps me not to get into a reading funk too often. If I can't get into a book in the first few chapters, I usually walk away from it for a while and come back later. Most of the time it's not because the book is bad, it's because I'm not in the mood to read that particular genre. Often when I come back I find that I enjoy the book :D

  6. Sometimes I can be a moody reader, especially if I'm in a funk. I'll need a light, fun read to get me unfunked. *L*

    Other times I'll be on a genre kick and no other genre will do! Right now, I seem to be on a YA kick, but am trying to break out and read other genres so I don't get into another reading rut.

  7. @Alexia561, I get on genre kicks too. I do try to mix it up quite a bit though. It helps to keep things fresh for me. Fun and light reads are perfect for breaking out of a reading funk :D

  8. Very cute question. Please see my response
