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

I definitely have moods as to what I want to read. Most of the time, I'm exhausted from work so I want something fast paced and straightforward and doesn't take me ages to figure out what's going on. That's probably why I was drawn to YA in the first place-- Great stories with clean, crisp writing. Occasionally, I want to read a sappy romance novel and will (gasp!) go to Nicholas Sparks or Emily Giffin. Other times, all I want is something new and unusual, which is part of the reason I became a reviewer! But for the most part, I stay in the paranormal, fantasy, dystopian, science fiction YA genre I love so much.

  2. Oh I love your answer! You're so right about how crisp and straight-to-it fun YA is. It's definitely a great relief after a long day!

  5. I like YA for that reason too. I feel like adult fiction/chicklit takes forever to get to the action or romance. Thanks for stopping by today!

  6. I am only really discovering YA now and I'm loving it!
