Jan 05, 2022 Mbawa Books

Navigating through life as a young adult can be challenging and daunting. Teenagers face school, exams, relationships, friendships, raging hormones and growing up all at once. There are so many new and unfamiliar situations we face all deemed to be 'part of growing up'. If you are feel unmotivated, uninspired or a little bit confused by life, we hope we can help. Here are the top five motivational books we have found that we recommend for tweens, teens and young adults.

How Our Subscription Works!

Jan 04, 2022 Mbawa Books

Every day, we are asked how our subscription box works. It’s a little complicated to understand even for us, and we make it! So here I’ll lay out for you everything involved in our subscription box’s production.

The Best Festive Books for Young Readers

Dec 21, 2021 Mbawa Books

With Christmas speedily approaching your child may want some books to read.These are our picks of our favourite festive books for this winter season!  

Benefits of Reading Classical Literature

Dec 01, 2021 Mbawa Books

Reading classic literature can help enrich your life and the lives of those around you. Some of the greatest works of all time can be found in classic literature and should not be overlooked. These literary gems will give you a historical viewpoint and greater knowledge to draw from for future works.

Charities We Support

The work of The Children's Society is close to our hearts and we partner with them in various ways to support.

For every new subscription bought through our website, we donate a book to Book Aid.

10% of every purchase via our Work for Good page, goes to Great Ormond Street Children's Hospital.

Meet the Creators

Kirsten & Aiyven are 14 & 12 year old sister-writers who are completely mad about books. Voracious readers & book reviewers, they have each written & published a middle grade novel . They also do children & middle grade book reviews on Facebook & YouTube all in the hope of promoting literacy and diversity in middle-grade literature. Their plan is simple "To make reading for pleasure cool again by sharing their love for reading & writing with everyone!". With the Happier Every Chapter subscription box, they aim to create an engaged community of readers through monthly boxes of bookish bliss for 8 - 14 year olds (Thought Leaders) with junior boxes (Little Literates) for 4-7 year olds too! 


Watch our creators speak about Happier Every Chapter on Channel 4 Steph's Packed Lunch. 

Diversity, Equality & Inclusion matters. We experienced this first-hand when we were invited to take part in Channel 4 Steph's Packed Lunch Small Business Market featuring kidpreneurs. As young black girls, we were very humbled to be invited to talk about our passion and small business. Did you know that 1 in 8 children in the U. K. does not own a single book? Or that less than 5% of books in the U.K. have a diverse leading main character. At Happier Every Chapter, we hope to change the status quo, one book and one subscriber at a time.
