Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created at The Broke and the Bookish. Each week they will post a new Top Ten list that one of the bloggers there at The Broke and the Bookish will answer. Everyone is welcome to join!
I missed last week’s Top Ten Tuesday topic, but rejoin the meme this week with my Top Ten Light and Fun Reads. I actually had a lot of trouble coming up with titles to share today, because I wanted to choose some titles I don’t always showcase (so, no Percy Jackson, although I think The Lightning Thief would definitely fit). I ultimately had to include some titles I’ve used on previous lists, because I couldn’t think of any others to include, which just proves that light and fun isn’t really something I read a ton of. I should remedy that! Anyway, here are my choices for this week, including two that may raise a few eyebrows because they’re not a genre I showcase on this blog at ALL.
How My Summer Went Up in Flames by Jennifer Salvato Doktorski
A fun road trip book wherein the main character finds herself.
Suddenly Royal by Nichole Chase
Reminiscent of The Princess Diaries, this was a really fun read with a great main character and fabulous romance. Prince Yummy!
Poison by Bridget Zinn
A fun fantasy with a sassy main character and cool potions making.
Also Known As by Robin Benway
Laugh-out-loud funny in places with a fabulous main character and sweet romance.
Confessions of An Angry Girl by Louise Rozett
Equal parts humorous, touching, and fun.
The Gallagher Girls series by Ally Carter
I have only read the first two, but “light” and “fun” definitely fit Cammie and Co!
Croak by Gina Damico
Like a little morbidness with your humor? Then this book’s for you!
Ranma ½ (Volume 1) by Rumiko Takahashi
I don’t really do the manga thing, but this one was really funny! I’m glad it was required for my Fantasy Lit course.
Silhouette Romance Novels
I’m partial to the “Intimate Moments” line, which I devoured in middle and high school (the one pictured is one of my favorites!). These are the epitome of mindless reads, at least for me. I still consider them a major guilty pleasure. :D
I realize that’s only nine items, but if you count my not-so-sneaky mention of the Percy Jackson books above, then that’s ten, right? I had a serious problem developing this list. Someone rec me some light and fun reads, stat!
