Top Ten Books for When You Need Something Light and Fun

Top Ten Tuesday is an original meme created by the wonderful blog, The Broke and the Bookish, as they are particularly fond of lists over there. All they ask is participants link back to the site to share their lists with fellow bloggers. Check out The Broke and the Bookish for details on this great weekly feature!

This week’s topic? Top ten books for when you need something light & fun!


1. The Princess Diaries – Meg Cabot
One of my favorite childhood series, listened to on tape.

2. Going Vintage – Lindsey Leavitt
A cute, fun contemporary from 2013!

3. Angus, Thongs, and Full-Frontal Snogging – Louise Rennison
To date, the only books that have literally made me laugh out loud.

4. Feeling Sorry for Celia – Jaclyn Moriarty
Really, any book by Jaclyn Moriarty could have gone on this list, but I decided to choose Feeling Sorry for Celia over The Year of Secret Assignments anyway. Her writing style is unique and really pumps up her stories.

5. The Selection – Kiera Cass
This book is great if you’re looking for a lighter dystopian novel. The romance makes it super fun and the reality TV aspect definitely helps lighten it as well.

6. Wake – Amanda Hocking
For me, anything set in a beach town counts as “light and fun.” There’s definitely drama, but the overall summer feeling is what makes this book so great.

7. Miss Fortune Cookie – Lauren Bjorkman
I absolutely adored Miss Fortune Cookie. While she did tackle some serious issues, she did it in a clever way. Erin is spunky and quirky and really makes the book.

8. The Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight – Jennifer E. Smith
I have yet to read a negative review of this book, and I can certainly understand why. This book is super adorable and has a wonderfully swoon-worthy British lad.

9. The Ivy – Lauren Kunze with Rina Onur
A drama-filled college experience that I’m glad I haven’t had.

10. Nick and Norah’s Infinite Playlist – Rachel Cohn & David Levithan
Romance and music. What more could you ask for?

  1. Angus, Statistical and Nick & Norah are the only ones I’ve read so far- they are all a blast! Going Vintage and Miss Fortune Cookie look so cute too.

  2. Angus and Infinite Playlist are both light an enjoyable — Rennison’s book is especially funny! I’ll have to pick up Going Vintage sometime. It’s been sitting on my TBR list since I first heard of it, though it’s getting quite a bit of TTT recommendations!

    Princess Diaries made my list as well. I haven’t heard of some of those. I’ll have to check them out.
