Mood Boosting Books – chosen by Young People
For 2017 a new collection of books called Reading Well Mood-boosting Books has been launched and contains uplifting titles, including novels, poetry and non-fiction. These mood-boosting books were suggested by Reading Hack groups, young library volunteers and visitors to the Southbank’s 2016 YA Weekender. The final list was decided by young people from Shoreditch Library and contains 15 titles and 2 series. The book list can be viewed at Chosen by young people (2017) | Mood-boosting Books | Books | Reading Well
