Mood Boosting Books

The 20th January is Blue Monday – supposedly the day of the year when the most people feel depressed! To support and cheer people who may be feeling a bit down we are having a campaign to create a Mood-boosting Top Twenty list of books chosen by the people of Brighton & Hove, we will then promote them in libraries.

To get things started Library staff have come up with some recommendations for you, which we will be posting between now and the end of January.

Todays recommendation is from Charlotte…

Name and role: Charlotte Low

Customer Services Manager here at Jubilee

What makes you happy?

Crafts, crocheting, eating books and reading chocolate.

 What do you recommend and why?


matt haigMy book of 2013 was The Humans by Matt Haig—look out for it as one of the World Book Night titles to be given out on April 23rd. Just read the preface and you’ll want to read the rest before then, however! It’s written from the perspective which all of us feel at some point-that of an alien.

Upliftingly observant and bizarrely funny. reserve it if its not on our shelves right now, but you’ll not put it down once you pick it up!
