Top Ten Books When I Need Light and Fun

Top Ten Tuesday: Top Ten Books When You Need Something Light and Fun
This meme is hosted by the lovely ladies at The Broke and the Bookish.  Go check them out.

Sometimes, when you have been spending a massive amount of time in the real world and less time in the world of fictional characters, there is a certain kind of book needed.  Especially when everything around you is all intense and crazy.  A light read is being called for!

1.  Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins
I figure this one will be on a lot of people's list today.  Seriously though, it's the perfect light read with tons of fun to be found among the pages.  

2.  The Princess Diaries by Meg Cabot
I have reread these books quite a few times.  The books are hilarious though.  Princess Mia is exactly what is called for when I just need to laugh.  

3.  My Life Next Door by Huntley Fitzpatrick
The whole story isn't super light, but it's a fun gooshy kind of novel that just makes me feel happy inside!

4.  The Wayside books by Louis Sachar
I have always loved these books.  I know that they are incredibly juvenile, but I still read them when I need a good laugh.  

5.  An Abundance of Katherines by John Green
Ok so John Green's books are amazing.  For me though, this was the lightest of them, and it was laugh-out-loud kind of funny all throughout the story.  

6.  Hex Hall series by Rachel Hawkins
Nobody quite does light and humorous quite like Ms. Hawkins.  I still pick up Hex Hall just to read some parts when I really need a pick-me-up.

7.  Hourglass by Myra McEntire
The story is captivatingly interesting, and Emerson is my kind of funny.  It's definitely one of my favorite light and super fun reads.  

8.  Elizabeth Eulberg's books
She is hilarious.  And her books are super light.  And there is always lots of fun to be found!

9.  Meant to Be by Lauren Morrill
Light and fluffy and set in London.  Three things that are very needed to relax!

10.  The Ghost Soliders by James Tate 
This is actually a book of poetry.  But the poetry is hilarious and always have me feeling much better in no time.  

Sorry that I didn't have time to link all of the books to Goodreads.  I just didn't have time this week.  


  1. Great list! I can't wait to read 1,3,7 and 9. I totally agree with the Wayside school books :D I had An Abundance of Katherines on my TTT.

  2. Great list! Some I have read and completely agree with, the others are pretty much all on my TBR/wish list pile.
    Anna and the French Kiss seems to be added to pretty much everyone's list. :)

  3. Deidra, nice list. I really enjoyed Hex Hall, yet to read book 3 though.

  4. John Green's books are pretty fun, I loooved Will Grayson :)

    MY TTT

  5. I cannot belive I forgot to include Anna and the French Kiss for TTT. So frustrating. Meg Cabot definitely made my list. She is great with light and fun.

    Ooo, and Wayside School! Great picks!

  6. Woo! New follower :) Thanks for stopping by our TTT. Everyone says something about Sarah Dessen cause of Kait's picks... and I always feel left out cause I've not read one of her books *shamed*! Great picks though. I've hemmed and hawed about Hex Hall for SO long. Maybe I really should read it now :)

  7. I've been wanting to read Hourglass for some time. Now that you mention it on your light & fun read, I'll definitely add it to my reading-next list.
    Thank you for stopping by my post, Deidra! :D


We would love it if you left your Twitter username and a link to your blog!
