TTT: Books When you Need Something Light and Fun

Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created at The Broke and the Bookish. Each week we will post a new Top Ten list. Everyone is welcome to join.    

This week's topic is:
Top 10 Books When you Need Something Light and Fun
*These are in no particular order.*

  1. Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins- Anyone who doesn't have this on their list is crazy!
  2. That Time I Joined the Circus by J.J. Howard- It's not exactly light, but its short and whimsical enough to give me a break with all the heavy stuff I read all the time.
  3. Bittersweet by Sarah Ockler- Cupcakes? Ice Skating? Winters with snow? Romance? There's nothing more light and fun than that. 
  4. The Dead and Buried by Kim Harrington- Yes its a ghost story, but it reads like a middle grade. It's scary, but not to much. I really had fun reading it. 
  5. Hex Hall by Rachel Hawkins- I laughed so much when I read this. The paranormal creatures in it are just an added bonus. 
  6. Of Poseidon by Anna Banks- It's a complete beach read. I loved all the water and mythology in it. And Galen of course was a nice touch. 
  7. Lola and the Boy Next Door by Stephanie Perkins- I think its safe to say that Perkins is like the Queen of light, fluffy romances. 
  8. Beauty Queens by Libba Bray- You can't tell me that you didn't die of laughter when you read this! And if you haven't GET TO IT! 
  9. Paranormalcy by Kiersten White- Its not a hard read at all. Its really funny, I remember it kept me laughing the entire time. 
  10. Percy Jackson and the Lightning Thief by Rick Riordan- Really the entire series. I laughed the entire time. It was this series that I fell in love with Riordan's writing. It was NEVER  dull moment.

  1. I´ve read and love Anna and Lola by Stephanie Perkins. great list.
    Thanks for stopping by My Top 10 Tuesday

  2. I totally agree on THAT TIME I JOINED THE CIRCUS. It did deal with some heavy issues, but you're right, it had so much magic and whimsy to it that the novel felt light and fun. I also thought BEAUTY QUEENS was really funny, although I ended up not liking it all that much.

    Happy TTT!

  3. Oooh, Of Poseidon! I've been wanting to read that for awhile! I think I'll bring it to the beach next month! I love Anna, Hex Hall, and Percy. I definitely need to read Lola next!

    Thanks for stopping by Nikki!

  4. What a fantastic list! I've read most of these, and while some weren't on my list, I would totally include them if this was a Top Twenty. :)

  5. Why didn't it occur to me to include Paranormal titles? Hey Of Poseidon and Paranormalcy!! I adored those two as well. Great list Nikki!

  6. Anna and Lola are such great books. And I've been meaning to check out Of Poseidon. Great list!

  7. Steph Perkins def belongs on this list! I feel like her books are the perfect example of light and fun! And The Percy jackson series is awesome fun! Thanks for stopping by my blog :)
