Top Ten Books When You Need Something Light & Fun (22)

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly feature hosted by The Broke and the Bookish
I had a lot of trouble with this because most of the books I tend to read deal with issues. Even the books I have chosen are still not as light and fluffy as I feel like this topic might demand? So I've picked 5 books I've read that are (kinda?) light and fluffy and then 5 books I WANT to read that seem light and fluffy to me. You guys can tell me if I'm right, I guess.

TOP FIVE LIGHT & FLUFFY BOOKS I'VE ALREADY READ


1. Megan Meade's Guide to the McGowan Boys by Kate Brian
I really, really love this book. It's so cute! Maybe not as light and fluffy as it could be, but I absolutely adore it. I've read it 4-5 times and it makes me all happy inside every time.

2. The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants by Ann Brashares
Okay, also not as light and fluffy as it could be, but the series is a GREAT binge read. Also, I love the friendship stories. Yeah, there are boys, but it's really about the girls. I mean, that's not so relevant ont he light and fluffy front, but still. 

3. The Princess Diaries by Meg Cabot
These books were always quick reads for me. It's been a long time since I read this one, and I definitely liked the movie better (the Grandma is super scary in the book and JULIE ANDREWS in the movies so, y'know). But yeah. Fluffy, light, fun.

4. Audrey, Wait by Robin Benway
I haven't read this book in a very long time but I remember it being a super fun romp. I want to re-read it soon since a lot of bloggers I follow have been raving about it recently.

5. Ex-Mas by Kate Brian
Another Kate Brian book. I can't even help myself. I haven't read a ton of Christmas books, but I'm pretty sure - based on the ones I HAVE read - that I love them. A lot.

TOP FIVE LIGHT & FLUFFY BOOKS I WANT TO READ


6. Decked with Holly by Marni Bates
Since I love Christmas books, and because this one sounds SO CUTE, I'm gonna have to put this on my light and fluffy wish list. 

7. Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins
Is this one a fluffy, light book? I feel like that's the impression I have of it. Either way, I want to read it so I'm putting it on this list. 

8. Going Vintage by Lindsey Leavitt
It looks so cuuuuute. I want it to be light and fluffy and cute and yeah. Especially since that cover is adorable. But I guess I'd be okay with it being a bit heavier?

9. The Boyfriend App by Katie Sise
The cover of this book is SO CUTE. I'm a little nervous about the way this book's going to turn out, but I'm DEFINITELY going to read it very soon!

10. Meant to Be by Lauren Morrill
The cover just SCREAMS light and fluffy. I also really love the colors. And the graphics. And the everything. Yes to the everything. So I'll take it, please. 

Do you think the first five fit the bill or are they too dramatic? And how about the second five on my TBR list? Are they light and fluffy or have I been mislead? Let me know in the comments below!

  2. Yes to Audrey, Wait! I loved that one. I put a different Robin Benway book on my list, but only because I use Audrey for pretty much every single topic. :)

    1. I'm SO GLAD it's also on your list. This means GOOD THINGS for me, I think!

  4. Your "want to read" books... oh you must read them! I have a copy of The Boyfriend App - started it, but wasn't too into it. I'd like to give it another try though! Going Vintage is cute and fluffy, but it definitely has a little bit of depth to it. Great lists!

    1. I like the cute and fluffies that have a little more to them. It makes the read feel a little more worth it. Although the fluffies have their worth too!!! I will totally get to all my want to reads tho. FOR SURE.

  5. I loved both The Boyfriend App and Meant to Be. With TBA, let me just warn you that it starts off pretty normal and then goes crazy. Take it all tongue in cheek *snorts* and it's absolutely hilarious. If you try to take it seriously, it's probably creepy. Haha. Umm, that sounds weird, but yeah. Also, The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants. I loved that series in high school, though I remember books two and four as being really depressing.

    1. hahahaha thanks for the warning with TBA!!! I'll probably like it better with that in mind, to be honest. And yeah, The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants books DID get serious sometimes, didn't they?

  6. I read all of the Sisterhood books when I was a kid and loved them. Did you know there's a newer one? I also read Princess Diaries, super fun.

    1. YES! I did know there's a newer one. I want to binge read all of them sometime soon. I think it's be a nice flashback.

  7. I definitely think that The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants is a good fit for this list, in spite the various issues each girl faces. I love that series so much (and seeing it here makes me want to re-read it!).

    1. SO many issues in the Sisterhood books, but they're such good and easy reads I couldn't help adding them! I also really want to re-read. MAYBE SOON. Maybe together?

  8. Anna and the French Kiss is on so many lists - I included it on mine as well. Princess Diaries is such a great addition - that series was my number one favorite growing up. And Audrey,Wait! is a great fit for this list as well.

  9. CHRISTMAS BOOKS. What a smart addition to this list. (Yet again, tried to come up with ten and I failed.) I loved EX-MAS! I haven't read Decked with Holly, and I almost bought one on Friday called "Mistletoe" but... I am on a book buying ban again and sadly, left it at the store.

    Oh Christmas! Have you read the Let it Snow short stories?

    1. I LOOOOOOOOOOVE Christmas books. And I don't even celebrate Christmas. Whatever. >.< Also. BOOK BUYING BAN? You are so strong!

      And yeah, I just took Let it Snow out of the library. SO EXCITED. Christmas stories allllll year 'round!

  10. I really need to read something by Kate Brian. Oh and Decked with Holly is really funny, especially at the beginning. I actually like Awkward more than Decked with Holly, though. And you must read Anna and the French Kiss. MUST! I forgot to include it in my TTT list. Grrr. :)

    1. YES TO KATE BRIAN. I haven't read all her stuff but I HAVE liked what I've read. I will get to Marni Bates AND Stephanie Perkins sooooon. I WILL.

  11. I really want to read Audrey, Wait! I've heard so many great things about it, and it seems like a really fun book. Anna and the French Kiss definitely fits the bill for this topic, and from what I've heard, so does The Boyfriend App. Great list!
