Top 10 Books When I Need Something Light and Fun

toptentuesdayToday’s Top Ten Tuesday, sponsored by The Broke and the Bookish, is Top 10 Books When You Need Something Light and Fun. This one is a little tough for me because I don’t read too many light and fun books. But here are some I feel like I could go to:

1. Love and Leftovers by Sarah Tregay – Cute, light teen love verse novel.

2. The Mortal Instruments series by Cassandra Clare – Nothing too serious in these; at least, nothing I take too seriously. They are easy reading and fairly entertaining if nothing else.

3. Warm Bodies by Isaac Marion – Sweet zombie novel. Adorable, even.

4. The Terrible Thing That Happened to Barnaby Brocket by John Boyne – Super quirky, fun junior read, but I’d be hesitant to give it to actual kids. Not sure if they’d really get it.

5. The Tiger Saga series by Colleen Houck – Fun adventure/fantasy series with lots of romance with highly attractive young, immortal, Indian boys that can turn into tigers. Yum.

6. The Runaways series by Brian K. Vaughan – I love Brian K. Vaughan, and this series is really entertaining, a lighter graphic novel series.

7. The Invincible series by Robert Kirkman – Another pretty light graphic novel series that I’m quite enjoying.

8. Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me? by Mindy Kaling – Mindy Kaling is awesome and hilarious, and I love her. That’s all there is to it.

9. Bossypants by Tina Fey – See above.

10. Binky the Space Cat by Ashley Spires – Good ol’ Binky. I’m sure he’ll make it onto plenty of these lists, but definitely fits for this one!

  1. Yay for Mindy. I love her book and I re-watch Mindy Project when I need a laugh. Warm Bodies is totally fun too, and I can get on board with Mortal Instruments as comfort reads. Fab list!

  2. I was surprised that I liked Warm Bodies as much as I did. Initially, the idea of a zombie love story was a bit off-putting, but I ended up being glad I read it.

    And, of course, Tina Fey is great.

    • And I am a librarian too, so I’ll look forward to your posts about work. I sometimes post about my job, like when my supervisor (who I generally adore) told me I should start approaching library service “like a Gap store”. Ugh.

  3. I got Fey on my TBR, I love her. I will add Kaling as well. šŸ™‚ Ty for the recommendations šŸ™‚

    I’ve only read the first two on your list, but I never would have thought of them for this category! They are fast, enjoyable reads, though, so that makes sense.

    Happy TTT!


  5. Wee, I’m so glad you put Warm Bodies on your list because so did I and I’ve only seen you do it too šŸ˜€
