Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. This week’s topic is:
Top Ten Books When You Need Something Light & Fun
Well, we’ve all been there haven’t we? The time comes when we want to put off reading the scary/intense/heavy stories and turn to something on the lighter side. Here are the top ten books I have turned to, or would go back to, when looking for a light, fun read:
1. Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins
I love this book! It’s the book equivalent of comfort food. I need to own my own copy!
2. Anything in the Pretty Little Liars series by Sara Shepard
These books are pure fun. Sure, they’re predictable and far-fetched, but I like the familiarity with Rosewood and Spencer, Hanna, Aria, and Emily.
3. The Hannah Swenson series by Joanne Fluke
These books are full of yummy cookies, and they’re really light, fluffy reads.
4. L.A. Candy by Lauren Conrad
I was surprised that I liked this book as much as I did! I still need to read the rest of the series, but it would make a great summer read.
5. Foxtrot by Bill Amend
I’m a big fan of the Foxtrot comics, and over the years, my sister and I have amassed quite a collection of the books. When I just want to read something that makes me laugh, I go to one of those books every time. No matter how often I read them, they always crack me up.
6. Audrey, Wait! by Robin Benway
Audrey is hilarious.
7. Dash & Lily’s Book of Dares by David Levithan and Rachel Cohn
I loved this book, and could definitely see it turning into an annual Christmas read.
8. Ready Player One by Ernest Cline
I’ve been slowly rereading it for a while. I love the setting, the 80s nostalgia, the video game references – this book is pure fun.
9. Twilight by Stephanie Meyer
Oh boy! This book is probably the reason I heard of the YA genre, and although I’ve only read it once, I’ve seen the movie enough to feel like I could turn to this book when I’m in the mood for something light, silly, and fun.
I had a tough time coming up with just nine books for this list! I don’t know if I’ll be able to come up with a tenth. Time to go check out other TTT lists – maybe I’ll find a tenth book there!
