Top Ten Books I Read When I Need Something Light & Fun

Posted May 7, 2013 by Liza in Top 10 Tuesday / 9 Comments

Top Ten Tuesday is a meme created by The Broke and the Bookish

Well, to me this means books that I re-read, even though there are not necessarily “light and fun”.  In fact, I don’t think I read a lot of those.  I do tend to re-read my favorite parts of some books and I do the same with movies (I can’t count how many times I’ve seen Pretty Women, Notting Hill, You Got Mail or The Proposal!)

1.  Breathe my Abbi Glines – The first book by Glines that I read and is still my favorite. 

2.  Dash & Lily’s Book of Dares by Rachel Cohn and David Levithan – One of the funniest books I’ve ever read!  Honestly, this one is a jewel.

3.  Iron Fey series by Julie Kagawa – I know, I know!  I don’t think I can have a top 10 without including this series, but I really love it!  I re-read my favorite parts when I need an Ash fix 🙂

4.  Beastly by Alex Flinn – There is just something about fairy tales that calls to me and this Beauty and the Beast re-telling from the POV of the beast is one of my favorites. 

5.  New Moon by Stephenie Meyer – Although I’m a fan of the series, I re-read New Moon more often.  I just love the part when Bella and Edward re-unite…

6.  Romancing Mr. Bridgerton by Julia Quinn – I’m a big fan of Quinn’s writing and this one is my all-time favorite.  

7.  Edenbrooke by Julianne Donaldson – I read this book only late last year, but it has quickly become a favorite.  

8.  Pride and Prejudice and Persuasion by Jane Austen – My two favorites by Austen!  I can read these over and over (and watch the movies too!)

9.  Jessica’s Guide to Dating on the Dark Side by Beth Fantaskey – I don’t know what it is about Lucius that I love so!

10. Just Listen, Along for the Ride and The Truth About Forever by Sarah Dessen – I love Dessen’s writing!  These are most definitely NOT light and fun, but they are amazing and I can’t get enough of them. 

Hmm… I guess that’s more than 10!  Oh, well, I tried.  What’s in your Top Ten this week?

  1. Sarah Dessen’s books are just such good reads! I also really want to read the Julie Kagawa books b/c my students tell me that I need to. 🙂

  2. Dash & Lily made my list too, I love that book! I really enjoyed the first two books of the Iron Fey series, I need to catch up with the rest, but they are fun books to read. Great list!

    My Top Ten

  3. I still need to read Breathe! It’s been on my iPad for quite a while now. I’m not a big fan of Fae novels, so Julie Kagawa’s series does nothing for me – but I love her Immortal Rules series! Does that count?!

  4. I wanna read Jessica’s Guide to Dating the Dark Side! That sounds awesome!

    I love the Iron series as well – JK is always able to get me straight into a story.

    Here’s my TTT post for this week.

    Happy reading 🙂
