Q: Do you have a go to genre when you are happy, sad, or angry?

Heartbreak causes me to go straight to the horror section. Imagine, reviewing a romance at that precise moment - the whole story would seem corny and cliched. I'd rather stick to horror at those times, plus my library has a good selection.

I recommend:

The Madman's Daughter Goes perfect with the theme.

What is your go to genre?


  1. OOh that's interesting! But totally understandable! If I'm in a crummy mood, the last thing I'd want is a happy love-dovey book. Give me the blood and guts instead! Haha!

    Here's my Follow Friday

    Have a GREAT day!

  2. Psht, I don't need to be in a heart broken or sad moment to go to Horror of Weird-and-Creepy! I'll take that any time, please!

    Usually, my moods didn't really effect what I was reading but lately, it has been! I am kind of sick at the moment and so I'm trying to read James and The Giant Peach by Roald Dahl, Firstly, RD is funny, secondly, the book's so great and I LOVE IT! :) It's my first time reading it but when I'm sad or sick, I prefer to turn to Childrens books! :)

    Other times, I just read whatever's available to me! :)

  3. Heartbreak used to make me go straight to sad, emotionally drenched novels. As I like to wallow in the emotion I am feeling. You can read my #FF at Really cute blog. I too am like Kimi where I wallow in my sadness and tend to read books that are sad or very emotional. I'm a new follower on Bloglovin. Your can also read my #FF at

  4. Yes! You're so right and I love that zombie picture! Gaahhh zombies rule! Bring on the blood and guts. Though I do get squeamish sometimes, I still love them.

  5. I can understand how horror could take you away from your sad situation.

  6. Love your answer! I like to read horror sometimes but I just don't get creeped out that easily. :)

  7. Nice zombie picture! I don't have a go to genre, but the fantasy novels that I read are usually darker if I'm sad or angry. I do however have go to tv shows, which are essentially reruns of Spooks or Doctor Who.

  8. I rarely read horror these days, but I should start reading it again.Following you via GFC & Fab post - thanks for sharing =)

  9. Great answer :) I still get sucked into sappy romances sometimes...or really angsty romances during those times Jessi The Book Cove

  10. Go, opposites! That just makes a lot of sense! New GFC follower! Thanks for stopping by! Happy reading!

  11. usually when I am sad or angry I read dystopian novels, It gives me the feeling that I can escape from a world to somewhere unlike my own, completely taking me away from my problems
