Hosted by the girls at The Broke and The Bookish, this week’s question:
Top Ten Books When You Need Something Light & Fun
Though I’m gonna cheat a little and do 10 authors I read when I want something Light & Fun
- Anything by Meg Cabot, though I’ve already read most of her books. They’re always good for a reread, though, because they are the very definition of light & fun.
- Janet Evanovich’s Stephanie Plum series. I’ve already read all of these, too, but they can definitely be reread because they’re just laugh out loud funny. My favorite is 12 Sharp because I’m a Ranger girl.
- Anything by Mary Kay Andrews. She’s a southern chick lit writer and I love everything she has out. There are a few books that I haven’t read, but I’m hoarding them for when I’m really stumped for something to read.
- Robin Benway–I’ve read Also Known As and Audrey, Wait, and her writing is just so good and she’s funny. I’ll read anything she puts out.
- Jennifer E. Smith–When I “discovered” her last year, The Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight had just been released, but I’d never heard of her before so I thought she was a debut author. It wasn’t until I read This is What Happy Looks Like this year that I realized she has a back list. I bought one of her books recently and I’m very much looking forward to reading it soon.
- Kristan Higgins–One of my favorite authors, I wait impatiently every year for a new book to come out. I wish she would write faster! My favorite, and one I’ve read countless times, is Just One of the Guys.
- Jill Shalvis–Another favorite author, I’m a big fan of her Lucky Harbor series, but she has quite a backlist that I’ve not read yet and I’m slowly making my way through.
- Shannon Stacey–This romance author has some funny and hot books. I’m never disappointed. They’re like little macaroons that I can savor, they’re generally quick and a lot of fun.
- Susan Elizabeth Phillips–Another romance writer I love, her books are so funny and the characters are generally pretty terrific.
- Sophie Kinsella–I’ve not read a lot by this author, but whenever I do, I’m not disappointed. The heroines are usually pretty funny and clueless, but they really develop over the course of the book into more mature/responsible people. I’ve never been disappointed by any of ther books.
Well, that’s it for today! Kristina was not feeling well, so she sat out this week.
