Top Ten Tuesday: Light and Fun

hosted by the broke and the bookish.

When I need something light and fun, I generally turn toward the middle-grade and young adult realistic fiction.  Here are some of my favorites.

1. All American Girl by Meg Cabot - This is one of my go to books for fun reading.  I first read it at the beginning of middle school and haven't stopped since.

2. Avalon by Meg Cabot - Meg Cabot is full of great light and fun reads.  I had half a mind to list all of her novels (at least the one's I've read) on this list.

3. Tale of Despereaux by Kate DiCamillo - It's a story about a mouse that wants to go on adventures.  What's better than that?

4. Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy by Douglas Adams - This story is hilarious and beautiful.  The characters are incredibly entertaining and the writing will keep you engaged.

5. Alice's Adventure's in Wonderland by Lewis Carroll - The classic light and fun read is right here. Alice and a white rabbit with a waistcoat, what more could you want?

6. Will Grayson, Will Grayson by John Green and David Levithan - I don't think I've laughed so hard in my life reading a book.

7. Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins - Stephanie Perkins makes the lighthearted world go round.

8. The Sister's Grimm series by Michael Buckley - Two girls become fairy tale detectives and solve mysteries in their new town. They're mostly light but completely fun.

9. The Princess Bride by William Goldman - High adventure, true love and lots in between, Goldman has written an abridgment of a nonexistent book.  From page one the humor is already there.

10. Scott Pilgram Precious Little Life by Bryan Lee O'Malley - A graphic novel that screams hilarity.


  1. Anna is on my list too. U just add Will Grayson to my TBR list. thanks for sharing.
    Here is My Top 10 Tuesday

  2. I'd love to read the original Alice in Wonderland at some point - I've read re-tellings and seen different films, but never Lewis Carrols'. Nice list. :D

  3. Will Grayson is my favorite JG book, loooved it :D

    MY TTT

  4. I think Anna and The French Kiss is on everyone's list. It wins!


  5. I couldn't narrow down to one Cabot book so I just posted a photo of her on today's post! I always know going into one of her novels that it will be light and fun and I will probably even laugh a couple of times. They always seem to put me in a fairly good mood! I also listed Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy. That is such a funny read! I haven't yet read the rest of the series though. Maybe soon!

  6. I've been hearing so much about about Stephanie Perkins this TTT, it's totally a sign! :D
