Today’s topic: The top 10 books I pick up when I need something light and fun
My number one go-to book when I just need a contemporary fairy-tale romance. This book is so sweet it gives me a toothache. (And yes, I’m aware that this book keeps showing up on all of my lists.)
Meg Cabot is the queen of the fluffy and light. This is the first of three loosely-related books told entirely through emails. Cute, quick, and funny.Gimme a Call
by Sarah Mlynowski
A funny story about a senior in high school who discovers she can call her freshman self on her broken cell phone and starts to use it so that she can change her life.
This book is just so fun. A teenage spy who works a crew like a young, female George Clooney in Ocean’s Eleven? Yes, please!
This book is the epitome of fluff, but I love it. It’s so cute and funny.
The perfect friendship/summer book (and series). I love these girls.
This book is hilarious. It’s mostly just quotes of the funny things his father has said over the years. Very simple, but I love it. Good example: “The dog is not bored. It’s not like he’s waiting for me to give him a fucking Rubik’s Cube. He’s a goddamned dog.”
Girls Night In by a whole slew of awesome authors like Meg Cabot, Sarah Mylnowski, Sophie Kinsella, and Mariam Keyes.
This is a fun compilation of short stories from some of chick-lit’s best authors.
Goodnight Nobody by Jennifer Weiner
I love the breezy mystery and this is one of my favorites. It’s still a typical Jennifer Weiner, but also a murder mystery.
Again, I know I’ve used this book for more than one list, but I just love it. I love the whole series and wish Jessica Darling was my best friend. This probably isn’t the last list you’ll see me put this book on.
So what about you? What are the books you turn to when you just want something light and fun? Leave me a comment below.
