Top Ten Light And Fun Books
1. Adorkable by Sarra Manning. I read this recently and it's the first book in a long time that has made me really smile.
2. Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins. What I now measure all teen love stories against. It's awesome.
3. Bridget Jones's Diary by Helen Fielding. I've never laughed so much at a book as I did with this one.
4. Amy and Roger's Epic Detour by Morgan Matson. OK, so it's not completely light, dealing with some pretty serious subject matter, but overall its such a lovely ride filled with fun and adorable moments.
5. Preloved by Shirley Marr. It's a ghostly love story with a heavy '80s influence. Yes, it's as awesome as it sounds.
6. Dash and Lily's Book of Dares by Rachel Cohn and David Levithan. A fun premise set at the most magical time of year (Christmas!) in one of the greatest cities in the world (NYC, natch).
7. Drink, Slay, Love by Sarah Beth Durst. The antidote to wangsty vampire novels, it features a kick-butt heroine and a hero who sparkles. Guess who's the vampire in that situation (spoiler: it's not the dude).
8. Perfect Chemistry by Simone Elkeles. It's cheesy and melodramatic but just so incredibly fun.
9. Lola and the Boy Next Door by Stephanie Perkins. I didn't love it as much as Anna, but Perkins sure has a knack for contemporary YA.
10. Beauty Queens by Libba Bray. There's a surprising amount of depth to this novel, but it's still full of glossy, hilarious fun.
