Top Ten Tuesday: Light & Fun Reads

A weekly feature hosted by The Broke & The Bookish, come join the fun with us each week by answer the prompt.

This week is perfect for my mood! I am enjoying the beautiful weather we have been blessed with here in Michigan. I just want to go outside and curl up with a great book. I have been itching to pick up something lighthearted and happy so this is perfect timing for me to consider what would work for this topic.

When thinking about light and fun reads, contemporary fiction--both young adult and adult-- as well as historical romance titles, immediately pop into my mind. With this in mind, I came up with the following list, which I have broken up into Young Adult titles and Adult titles. 

Young Adult Titles:


   
  


1) Shut Out by Kody Keplinger. There is something about this title that just makes me smile and laugh. I have mentioned this title before so enough said about it.

2)  Smart Girls Get What They Want by Sarah Strohmeyer. Another fun young adult contemporary fiction title--I just had a ball reading it. I actually got it as a download recently through my library because I want to read it again. :)

3) Catching Jordan by Miranda Kenneally. No secret here either--Ms. Kenneally is one my favorite authors.

4) Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins. Actually, you can insert any of her titles into this list. 

5) Epic Fail by Claire LeZebnick. I just really enjoyed this title and had lots of fun reading it. 

6) The Season by Sarah MacLean. I mentioned last week that I love the regency time period and I really enjoyed this title. I only wish the other two ladies' stories could be written some day. 


Adult titles:


 
  


7) Fool's Gold Series by Susan Mallery. Hard to narrow a specific one, but I do like to read them when they come out (which the next three are coming out starting this month) and always enjoy the light read. 

8) Lucky Harbor series by Jill Shalvis. I am looking forward to reading the next three due out this summer as well. 

9) Cynster series by Stephanie Laurens. I just finished up The Taming of Ryder Cavanaugh and enjoyed it immensely. Her Cynster series is one of those series I like to re-read. 

10) The Rules of the Scoundrels series by Sarah MacLean. I just love her writing so much and there are so many humorous moments in her books, I cannot help but smile when reading them. 

So there you have it--my list of light and fun reads as I see them. I love these weekly features as I love to see the differences and find more titles to read. What titles do you enjoy for a light and fun reading experience?

    1. Susan Mallery's books in general are great beach/vacation reads. Anna is one of my faves--as are the others by Stephanie Perkins. I am looking forward to Isla this fall. :) Thanks for coming by my Top Ten.
