Hello readers, happy Tuesday! I have been meaning to write a post about mood readers. Well for starters, I am a mood reader! Let’s dive deep into this topic!
Who is a mood reader?
A person whose feelings determine what they read. They are always on a hunt for genres that their feelings speak to and it keeps changing according to seasons, events, festivals, or the phase they are going through momentarily. Mostly it depends on the emotions and feelings the person goes through.
What are my reading habits as a mood reader?
I keep switching up my genres. There will be a point where I will be binge reading murder mysteries or only romance books. My reading tastes are also changing and lately, I prefer fast-paced books. Whenever I pick up a book, I usually end up binge reading 3 to 4 books at a time. But then, there will be a time when I won’t read anything! A month ago, I had started 7 to 8 books and did not finish any of them. I felt so guilty that I wanted to bring it to a balance. The books that I didn’t want to read at that moment, were temporarily DNF’ed, and the books that I was interested to read were prioritized.
Sometimes when I feel low, I read contemporary books to make myself feel better. And when I am on cloud nine, I will be flying through murder mysteries and young adult books!
Being a mood reader is complicated because emotions control what you wish to read! I feel that in some or the other way we are mood readers. What kind of a reader are you? Let me know in the comments! Happy Reading! Rabhya.

The saddest book you’ve ever read.
I may have mentioned this book a couple of times, but this book made me cry. Such a beautiful story that broke my heart. I had read this when I was at a similar point as the main character.
A character that made you really angry.
Verity Crawford made me really angry throughout the book. When you will read the book, you may feel the same. I won’t spoil why, but since I have read this book, I haven’t stopped thinking about it.
A hopeful book.
I don’t talk much about this book, but it was a really good book! It is about a teenage mother taking care of her daughter. I felt the love and warmth between the mother and daughter while reading the book. A captivating story.
A book coming out soon you’re excited for.
Well, I haven’t shared MY EXCITEMENT for this book!! This is the fifth installment in the Truly Devious series and if you have been reading my blogs for a long time, you may be knowing that Truly Devious is my all-time favorite series! The cover and summary have already made me desperate for this book to come out!
A book that made you feel clever.
Ah, maybe Silent Patient!? It was a bomb of a read and till the last page, the author was putting plot twists in the story! Loved it!
Hello, my writers and readers! Today I wanted to talk about a phase that all writers go through at some point in their lives. I have been in writing slumps several times. Recently, I did not post anything for 2-3 weeks because I did not feel like writing for some time.
What Is Writers Block?
For my non-writers out there, it is basically when you don’t feel like writing anything or you are unable to think of what to write. It is very natural because as writers, our minds are continuously building up ideas for writing. Sometimes we need a break from that cycle, so we end up falling into writer’s block. There are many other reasons, for instance, not being a proper mindset or chasing perfection can lead to a writing slump.
How To Overcome It?
Don’t Force Yourself!
Many people force themself to write even when they don’t feel like it. This can extend your writing slump even more. Instead, just engage in another activity for a while and then come back to it.
Change The Place.
Normally writers have a fixed place where they sit and write. You can change some things around your workspace or go to a different place like a cafe and write! It helps give a fresh mindset.
Do Raw Writing.
Pick up any piece of paper or open up a word doc and just write what is going through your mind at that moment. You don’t have to write related to your book or blog, just write the emotions or thoughts going through your mind. This has helped me open up my mind!
I really missed you all and after a two-week break, I am back with a fresh mind and new content ideas! Don’t be stressed if you fall into a writing slump, you may never know what ideas you can get after your slump is over! Let things go naturally and go with the flow ❤ Happy Reading! Rabhya.
The rollercoaster is going up steadily and it is coming to a point where it pauses. You are aware that it will be going down any minute now. The adrenaline is rising in your body and a weird feeling is coming inside your head. You are scared of that feeling. This feeling has been there before and you know that the feeling is Change. Take a Breathe. Any moment, the rollercoaster will take full speed and go down.
But will it always go down?
Weall have goals and dreams to accomplish. We wait for the right time, have high hopes and work intensively to achieve it. We also fear, what if, just like the rollercoaster, it all goes down? But in the end, we should be ready for anything. Change is not something to be afraid of, it is something to wait for. To achieve something, we need to go the hard way and in the end, the result will be satisfaction and pleasure. Life will go downhill and it will be the hardest, but one day it will come up.
The rollercoaster goes down, but it will rise at full speed. The weird feeling will be gone, you will feel fearless and nostalgic.
Take the first step, don’t hesitate to start something new. Let that door open and welcome new opportunities and responsibilities! Take that risk and be bold, nothing should stop you even once. Sometimes, you will have to do things that are out of your comfort zone, but it will be worth it!
