This week’s topic is: Top Ten Books When You Need Something Light & Fun

Light and Fun Reads

1. Dairy Queen by Catherine Gilbert Murdock

I really, really can’t recommend this series enough! I <3 them so much.

2. Jessica Darling series by Megan McCafferty

These books are so much fun. They’re especially fun for all of us 90’s kids since they take place in the 90’s and early 2000’s.

3. Past Perfect by Leila Sales

Have you read the summary for this book? It doesn’t get any more fun than that!

4. Ten Things We Did by Sarah Mlynowski

This book is so much fun, but it has a great message as well.

5. 13 Little Blue Envelopes by Maureen Johnson

Backpacking through Europe? YES!

6. Paranormalcy by Kiersten White

It’s not often that you come across a really fun paranormal read. This one is hilarious and flat out fun.

7. Ruby Red by Kerstin Gier

This might be one you wouldn’t expect, but it’s such a fun and entertaining time travel read.

8. Heist Society by Ally Carter

These books are the definition of fun. Read them if you haven’t!

9. Audrey, Wait! by Robin Benway

I read this book entirely in one sitting. It’s impossible to put down.

10. Bittersweet by Sarah Ockler

Cupcakes, hockey boys, and Ockler’s wit? Yes, please!


  1. PAST PERFECT – yes! Loved that book! Uber cute :)

  18. I’ve only read the first Jessica Darling book from your list – have the other three ready to go, enjoyed the first so much! – and a couple others I haven’t yet read (Ruby Red and Paranormalcy), so there’s some new-to-me recommendations here I’ll have to keep in mind when I want something fun to read! Wonderful! ๐Ÿ˜€
