  1. Nice! I had to think and surf a bit, but this is a book that I want to read so, my entry is:

    Why Be Happy When You Could Be Normal? by Jeanette Winterson

    Thanks for the fun giveaway!


    • The Autism Mom’s Survival Guide (for Dads, Too!): Creating a Balanced and Happy Life While Raising a Child with Autism….
      Its the book im reading at the moment, brilliant book too x


  2. Ooooh, I had fun thinking of examples I could use! Definitely harder than it looks, this one. I’ve gone for THE BALLAD OF THE SAD CAFE by Carson McCullers. Thanks for the giveaway!


  3. don’t know if my other comment went through, as it had an error, then said i’d duplicated, but i can’t see it here.

    I’ve found another one though, so please delete any duplicates:

    Envy The Night – Michael Koryta


  4. I wasn’t sure if my entry worked as my browser crashed. My entry was the forlorn by Dave Freer and an addition by my son who said the hungry caterpillar. He gets moody when hungry. Hehe x


  5. Super Sad True Love Story by Gary Shteyngart

    Not read it yet, but it was one of Amazon’s daily deals on kindle, so it’s on my to-read list!


  6. I had 3 other titles up my sleeve – but they were all already here! So had to resort to browsing my non-fiction shelves and found:

    ‘The Happy Baker A Girls’ Guide to Emotional Baking’ by Erin Bolger which fits your criteria perfectly, I hope…


  7. Finding Contentment: When Momentary Happiness Just Isn’t Enough By Neil Clark Warren

    One of my all time favourites! Really lifts me when im down.


  8. Restless in the Grave by Dana Stabenow … one of my favourite authors … it’s a long wait for the paperback in September so i could buy the hardback now if I won!!!


  9. Sorry – just realised that my first entry had already been said!
    Will have to go with A Jealous Ghost by A.N. Wilson … don’t read it late at night!


  10. (oops that first one got a bit mangled – please delete!)

    gholmes724 [at] gmail [dot] com

    Being Happy!: A Handbook to Greater Confidence and Security by Andrew Matthews


  11. Mad Cows by Kathy Lette.
    I entered a competiton almost identical to this recently (diff’ answer topic) – only that blog didn’t seem to announce any winners, hopefully you will!


  12. Wicked by Gregory Maguire

    Took me ages to think of this! Saw it on my shelf and thought, “wicked is definitely a mood!”

    Checked that nobody else has posted it and no-one has 🙂

    Thanks! What an imaginative giveaway!


  13. How about:

    Curiosity Thrilled the Cat, by Sofie Kelly,
    Pleased, But Not Satisfied: The Navy Years, by James Edwin Alexander
    or again
    Scenes from a Disturbed Childhood, by Adam Czerniawsk
    or even
    Disturbed, by Empress Djata

    to vary the emotions.


  14. The Loving Spirit by Daphne du Maurier (Brought back memories of a schoolgirl romantic phase of reading her books- starting with Rebecca)


  15. My computer is too darn slow to read through all the previous entries so I’ve thought of a few. Hopefully at least one of them won’t have been said already!

    Alain de Botton “Status ANXIETY”
    Lynn Voedisch “EXCITED Light”
    Julian Barnes “Nothing to be FRIGHTENED of”
    Holly Webb “The FRIGHTENED Kitten” (from my daughter’s bookshelf!)


  16. Oh my goodness it was hard to find one that I’d read that wasn’t here! I cheated in the end and googled – sorry but honesty is the best policy! I hope my entry still counts 🙂

    Spontaneous Happiness: Step-by-step to Peak Emotional Wellbeing


  17. The Conquest of Time and the Happy Turning by HG Wells!!

    Had to find a sci-fi and I had to find a classic….these were my own additional rules!


  18. I resorted to looking at my kids bookshelves as all the previous book titles I could think of had already been taken. “Today I Feel Silly & Other Moods That Make My Day” by Jamie Lee Curtis


  19. Fearless Fourteen by Janet Evanovich (just one of the series of hilarious novels featuring Stephanie Plum the bounty hunter)


  20. Bitter is the New Black : Confessions of a Condescending, Egomaniacal, Self-Centered Smartass,Or, Why You Should Never Carry A Prada Bag to the Unemployment Office by Jen Lancaster – now that is a title! xoxo


  21. I couldn’t see this title, so hopefully I’m the only one who’s chosen it. It’s The Suffering World by Katie Peterson


  22. The Mindful Way Through Depression: Freeing Yourself from Chronic Unhappiness
    by Mark Williams, John Teasdale, Zindel V. Segal, Jon Kabat-Zinn, Jon Kabat-Zinn

    Chronic unhapiness is a mood right?


  23. The Heart is a Lonely Hunter by Carson McCullers – a couple of people have said The Ballad of the Sad Cafe which was my first one but don’t think anyone’s said this yet


  24. I pondered this for ages and then saw this title staring at me from the bookshelf!

    “In The Company Of Cheerful Ladies: The No. 1 Ladies’ Detective Agency Vol 6” – by Alexander McCall Smith

    Great book too.



  25. Have loved reading through the entries I choose The Miserable Mill by Lemony Snicket, part of the series of unfortunate events


  26. The Happy Traveller: A Book For Poor Men by Frank Tatchell. Couldnt find it byy oding ctrl + f so hoping its not already on here, not reading through all 398 posts to find out.


  27. My friend Nick Toczek’s book of poems is called “Can Anyone Be As Gloomy As Me? Poems About Being Sad” and contains the brilliant poem “Moody, Mardy, Moany, Mo” which my children and I absolutely love!
