Top Ten Tuesday






Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by The Broke and The Bookish.  You should go there immediately.  After you read this.



Top Ten Books When You Need Something Light and Fun
This is a very important category, because sometimes the drama and the feelings are just too much, and I really need to laugh until I barf.







This was actually a little harder than I thought it would be!  Apparently, I mostly just read deep, moody stuff?

What did you guys pick?

  1. Oh my gosh, you just reminded me that i am the only person on the world who hasn't read The Princess Diaries... need to hop on that!

    Great Picks! For me, any Ally Carter book will do for a light, funny read. New Follower :)

    1. Yes! It's a great series for when you need a good laugh. And Meg Cabot always writes wonderful characters.

      Thanks for following!

  2. Sideways Stories is definitely a good ones- when I taught elementary and we needed something fun I'd always bust those out.

    1. I'm constantly recommending them to people I know with kids. But the parents lose interest once I start trying to explain why there is no nineteenth story.

  5. I love Harriet the Spy. I read it when I was in library school and was pleasantly surprised. And of course The Princess Diaries and Angus! Great list!

  6. I love your list! The Ramona series was like my favorite series when I was younger. I loved Harriet the Spy, as well. I wanted to be just like her! I went around trying to spy on people all the time, although that's hard to do when you live in the middle of nowhere. :D

    1. I also tried to start my own spy route! Of course, I wasn't allowed to leave my street, so I didn't get a lot of leads.

      The only suspicious things I ever discovered were cars I didn't know parked at various neighbors' houses. I'm sure they were just visitors, but I couldn't take any chances. I copied down all of their license plate numbers just in case they became a suspect.

  7. I do think it's time for a Hitchhiker's Guide reread, that book has made me laugh like no other. Also I wonder, Do the Westside books remain a retreat, as you move away from the age of the MCs?

    1. Oh, sure. Every once in awhile I get a fit of nostalgia and have a little binge. True, the jokes aren't nearly as funny as they were when I was ten, but I still love the characters!

  8. Gawd, I used to love the Georgia Nicolson books when I was at school! And I wanted to be a princess when I read The Princess Diaries, OBVIOUSLY. I'm yet to read The Eyre Affair but I loved The Big Over Easy, and I really want to try a Jen Lancaster but I don't know where to start!

    *potters off to wishlist to add some nostalgic stuff to it* :)

    1. Bitter is the New Black is probably a good Jen Lancaster to start with, since it is her first. However, her first one that I read was Pretty In Plaid, which is hilarious. They can probably all stand on their own, though.
