As the days get shorter and the weather gets wetter, we all need something to boost our mood. The Reading Agency have worked with Macmillan Cancer Support to create a new list of Mood-boosting Books. Most of the books have been recommended by people who have been diagnosed with cancer. In general the books are not specifically about cancer but have been recommended as books that people found mood-boosting before or after treatment.
You will find copies of the list in libraries and online here and all the books are in stock to borrow or request.
There is a varied selection of poetry, novels and non-fiction. Paris for One, The Green Road into the Trees, Ode to Didcot Power Station, The Humans, The Stories and A Man Called Ove are all general mood-boosting suggestions. If you’d like to recommend your own uplifting read, add a comment to tell us the books that lift your spirits?
