Let’s Talk Bookish – April 23rd

Friday’s are for The Let’s Talk Bookish Meme which is a weekly meme created and hosted by Rukky@EternityBooks and Dani@Literary Lion and todays topic is: How Reading Affects Mental Health (suggested by Kristin @ Lukten Av Trykksverte)

In what ways does reading affect your mental health? – Reading can definitely effect my moods especially negative ones. If I am having trouble getting into a book or if I am feeling guilty because I want to read other books than ones I am “supposed” to be reading, then this can put me in a “mood” and I don’t want to do anything. It can also go the other way too, a good book can go a long way as a pick me up.

Do triggers, bookish controversies, and things like that affect your health a lot more than you let on? I don’t usually need trigger warnings but I do find them helpful to know whats coming in a book. There are a few things I don’t like reading about so it’s nice to know if I need to skip something because of them.
