Top ten books to read when you need something light and fun!

My list this week is not ten specific books, but rather a few books, a few authors and everything else in between!

1. Harry Potter

I love the entire Harry Potter series, but if I’m looking for something light and fun I really enjoy reading the first three books in the series. They are a little shorter and not as dark as the later books and in my opinion totally fun to read over and over!

2. The Chronicles of Narnia

This series is a great fantasy read! I enjoy these books when I am looking for something to read fast, but something that still has a great plot.
3. Books by Sarah Dessen

I just love the romance (and often the beach) in Sarah Dessen’s novels!
4. Books by Nicholas Sparks

Again, I just enjoy the romance and the (mostly) happily-ever-after endings!
5. The Gallagher Girl series

Teenage girl spies, love stories and lots of adventure. In my opinion, that always equals a lot of fun!
6. A Girl Named Digit

This book is about a girl genius, a group of terrorists, the FBI and like most of my light read favorites- a love story! A perfect combination!
7. Redeeming Love

This is a beautiful story! I consider it a must read and it is wonderful every time!
8. My Life Next Door

The quirky family and the young love in this story make it a light and enjoyable read!
9. Junior Fiction books

Diary of a Wimpy Kid Book Cover

I’m a children’s librarian so sometimes when I’m looking for a light read I just pick up a few junior chapter books and call it a day! They are usually funny and full of personality!
10. A big stack of picture books

I try to keep with new and popular picture books so many night you will find me snuggled up with a huge stack of picture books. This may actually be my favorite way to do some light reading! Picture books almost always bring a smile to my face and I love sharing them with my daughter!

  1. I picked the Gallagher Girls series, too (as did a lot of people). I’ve only read the first book, but it’s just SO fun. Not the kind of thing I usually read, but a nice break from all my dark, depressing dystopians, you know? Great list!


  2. I love picture books. Pete the Cat is sooo much fun, and hugely popular at the library. And whenever a new Mo Willems book comes in, we all (library staff) rush to read it. Because he is the best!
