Does your current mood affect your reading? Affect your choices? I know there are plenty of books I enjoy, but only if I'm in a particular kind of mood–or books that can lift me out of a bad mood without fail. Surely I’m not alone? From the archives.

I have to be in a particular mood for dark, violent books. Or I have to read them when I don't have a lot going on, like over summer vacation (or other vacations). Other than that, I've been in the mood for a mystery for about a month. I will remedy that soon!

I like having lighter reads after heavier fare. That affects my mood, too. And some authors, like Maeve Binchy or Milly Johnson or Jill Mansell put me in a good mood because they have satisfying endings (not necessarily happy endings, but they satisfy me).
