Top Ten Tuesday: Light & Fun Reads
Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. Each week there is a new topic. I’m a huge fan of lists, so this meme is right up my alley!
This week’s topic is Top Ten Books When You Need Something Light & Fun. My list isn’t really all light and fun–but a lot of them are just books I’m so familiar with that they really are a refreshing read for me. Or they’re just so different than what I usually read that it’s a nice change. Or they’re maybe not very light, but definitely fun!
So here’s my kinda weird list:
This series is my absolute favorite series of all time, so when I’m in a rut or need something different, I really need to look no further. Of course, this series isn’t light at all, but it does have some great humor, and it’s a wonderful comfort read for me.
A few years ago, when we heard that Sweet Valley Confidential: Ten Years Later was coming out, Courtney from Abducted by Books and I wanted to read a whole bunch of Sweet Valley High Books ASAP. So I got on Ebay and bought like 30 of them for around $35. That year, I read about half of them, and I still have half to go, including a whole bunch of the Super Editions. They’re light, and even when they include a serious subject they’re still pretty cheesy. Plus it’s great nostalgia for me. I’d like to read the rest of them sometime soon, but unless I can think of some kind of feature for them, I really don’t think I’ll be reviewing them, so I’ve been putting off reading them.
I’m a few books behind in this series, but I really enjoy these books and while they’re not always really light, they’re fun, easy reads. One of these days I’ll finish the series.
I’ve only read a couple of the books in this series, but they’re definitely fun and great quick reads. My friend gave me quite a few of these books and I hope to get to them someday soon!
I still haven’t read the last two books in this series, but I always know I can pick these up and find a hilarious and heartfelt read.
These books aren’t always really light, either, but they’re just such great stories and they just make me feel all warm and fuzzy. I can’t wait for the third book to come out!
I haven’t yet read all of this series, but I hope to finish it this year. They’re just such fun, adventurous stories and they’re so small that even a horribly slow reader like me can finish one in a day.
I still have only read the first book in this series (That’s crazy, I know!) but I know that when I finally get to read the next book it’ll be a lot of fun. Plus: Hale!
Well, that’s it for my list this week. I don’t really read a lot of Chick Lit or Romance or anything so a lot of my books are pretty heavy. But these are all books that make me smile and can definitely turn a bad day around. What are your go-to books when you need something light and fun, or just something to give you the warm fuzzies? Let me know, or leave a link to your TTT in the comments, and I’ll stop by your blog!
