So I missed a couple of Top Ten Tuesday posts, but this week I’m back. I’ve been setting up a monthly reading list and if I can help it, I always throw in a book or two which is light and fun in order to strike a balance especially if I plan to read some “serious” books. What is light and fun for me usually mean short books (i.e. novellas) and/or chick-lit or YA or children’s books. If I were to recommend my Top Ten Light & Fun Reads, these would be the following (and links to my write-ups):
- My Imaginary Ex by Mina V. Esguerra. Short and light, you can finish this in an hour or so.
- Love Your Frenemies by Mina V. Esguerra. Another novella which is easy to read. And fun too.
- Charlie and The Chocolate Factory by Roald Dahl. Who wouldn’t want to read about chocolates?
- The Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight by Jennifer E. Smith. I just finished this recently and I must say that this one does not require too much brain cells. Definitely light and fun.
- This Lullaby by Sarah Dessen. Dexter, the male protagonist, is so fun. And funny.
- Attachments by Rainbow Rowell. Ah, this is the book which has my ultimate bookish crush on it. <3
- The Shopaholic Series by Sophie Kinsella. You just can’t get enough of the adventures and misadventures of Becky Bloomwood.
- Anne of Green Gables by L.M. Montgomery. This children’s classic will never wear you out.
- 84, Charing Cross Road by Helene Hanff. This is a compilation of letters between two individuals who share a passion for books and reading.
- The Adventures of Tom Sawyer by Mark Twain. You will definitely enjoy the adventures of Tom and his friends in this timeless classic.
Light and fun reads will always be a staple in my reading list. After all, reading should always be fun, right? 🙂
