TOP TEN TUESDAY: Top Ten Books When You Need Something Light & Fun

Top 10 Tuesday is hosted at The Broke and the Bookish. Today’s topic is the Top Ten Books When You Need Something Light & Fun.

One reason I truly enjoy young adult books is that they are often light and fun and enjoyable. Even when the books veer into more serious topics, the books aren’t too depressing. Below are a few of the books that I found the most light-hearted and exactly what I needed during a rough week.

This is What Happy Looks Like by Jennifer E. Smith
Predictable but enjoyable... the title says it all.
Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins
Anna & St. Clair were adorable.
Anne of Green Gables by L.M. MontgomeryI absolutely love Anne’s innocence and imagination.
Iron King by Julie Kagawa
Although this book is intense, it takes you away to another world with otherworldly creatures.
An Abundance of Katherines by John Green
Sarcasm is always a bonus for me. AND you can skip over the mathy parts if that hurts your brain.
Smile and Drama by Raina Telgemeier
Graphic novels are so entertaining to read and ______ goes a great job of concocting a story that is lively and characters that almost come off the page.
Paranormalcy by Kiersten WhiteLike Iron King, Paranormalcy has lots of fantastical creatures that seem to leap off the page and pull you into this other world.
Sweet Venom by Tera Lynn ChildsI really did think this book would be dark & dreary, but it is fun & light-hearted… perfect for an enjoyable read.
Dead End in Norvelt by Jack GantosSure there is a murder mystery, nose-bleeds, and some crazy characters, but this book was wild… in a good way.
The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian by Sherman Alexie
Between the drawings and the story, I definitely enjoyed this book.
