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

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. 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 :)

  2. The Iron Fey is one of my favorite series - I could read it again and again - good pick!

    Check out my list! --> TTT @ Krista's Dust Jacket

  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. 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

  5. Dash and Lily made my list as well. I really liked The Truth about Forever and Lock and Key by Sarah Dessen. I have her other books on my TBR. I just bought The Vincent Boys by Abbi Glines last weekend. I haven't read any of her books, but I have seen great reviews.

    Here is my TTT: http://jacquesbooknook.blogspot.com/2013/05/top-ten-things-to-read-when-you-need.html

  6. 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. :)

  7. Woohoo for Pride and Prejudice! I'm afraid I didn't much care for Persuasion; I'm more of a Sense and Sensibility gal.

    Here's my TTT for the week. Happy reading!

  8. Dash and Lily!! That would have been a great one to add to my list, but I didn't think of it. This week was much harder than I thought it would be. Great list!
