TOP TEN TUESDAY: Books I Read When in Need of Something Light and Fun
Hosted by the ladies at The Broke and Bookish.
TOP TEN BOOKS I READ WHEN IN NEED OF SOMETHING LIGHT AND FUN
1. Jane Jameson series by Molly Harper (particularly the audiobooks)
This paranormal series just makes me smile from beginning to end! Jane and her friends' antics are always entertaining and the audiobook narration by Amanda Ronconi is just icing on the cake.
2. Heather Wells series by Meg Cabot
A mystery series that involves a former teen idol who is the manager of a college dorm and all the hijinks that come with it. Classic Cabot humor!
3. Bet Me by Jennifer Crusie
Contemporary romance that I would love to see as a romantic comedy film someday...if they do it justice. Great, funny characters and some pretty hilarious scenes like the glazed doughnut wedding cake.
4. Match Me If You Can by Susan Elizabeth Phillips
Almost anything SEP does is worthy of this list, but MMIYC is my personal favorite. The back-and-forth between our matchmaker heroine and sports agent hero is exactly what I need after a long, hard day.
5. Ouran High School Host Club by Bisco Hatori
Super funny manga series involving high school, cross dressing, and over-the-top flirtation. The 26 episode anime series is also pure entertainment and is available on Netflix if you are interested.
6. Confessions of Georgia Nicholson series by Louise Rennison
I fell for these books in high school the moment I saw the titles: Angus, Thongs, and Full-Frontal Snogging; Dancing in my Nuddy-Pants; And Then He Ate My Boy Entrancers, etc.
7. Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins
Sometimes I really want a light and sweet teen love story and the fact that this one takes place in Paris just boosts it up the list.
8. The Viscount Who Loved Me by Julia Quinn
My all-time favorite historical romance that is full of snarky humor, runaway dogs, and an amazing love story.
9. See Jane Score by Rachel Gibson
More funny sports romance! I don't know much about hockey, but that doesn't deter my overall enjoyment of this goalie meets reporter story.
10. Neanderthal Seeks Human by Penny Reid
I just read this last week and it definitely deserves a spot on the list. The heroine is quirky and relatable and the hero is sexy and sweet. Perfect weekend read!
