As you know, this is a feature hosted by The Broke and The Bookish once a week where all of us geeky book bloggers get to stare at our libraries and figure out which books fit that week’s topic. It’s really fun, so if you haven’t joined in yet, maybe you should. ;)
This week’s topic:
Top Ten Books When You Need Something Light & Fun
#1 Goose Girl: this is the most charming love story i’ve ever read, and it made me smile the whole way through.
#2 Eli Monpress: this series doesn’t excellent job at capturing whimsy and fun without being stupid (i’m not pointing fingers, but it happens). The whole thing is incredibly memorable, and it has one of the coolest magic systems ever. Read full review
#3 Wild Magic: this is essentially about a girl who can talk animals – what’s not to love?
#4 Redwall: an awesome saga where woodland creatures take on the personas of humans, elves, dwarves and other Middle Earthian creatures and take you on one grand adventure after another. These are so epic in places that you forget you are reading about mice. Read full review
#5 The Selection: this is the Hunger Games meets the Bachelor. all the vicious backstabbing in the world, but without all the blood (well, maybe there was a little). I enjoyed the snot out of this book, but be warned – as light and fun as this one was, the second one stressed me the F out.
#6 Wings: the only way i can describe this one is that it was a very “pretty” read. The plot was relatively simple but it was done in such a way that made you not care. It was also an interesting take on Arthurian lore. Read full review
#7 Sword – Dancer/Sword – Singer: don’t read this one if you’re looking for a compelling and complex plot. If you are interested in hilarious exchanges of man versus woman told in a very cheeky manner, this might be the tale you. There might be some sword fighting involved, too. Read full review
#8 Poison: although it had a couple of flaws, Poison was definitely a fun read. I liked the pig. Read full review
#9 Hounded: this urban fantasy was unique and awesome and fun and one of my favorite books that i’ve read this year so far. Read full review
#10 First Truth: this book was written by Dawn Cook, which is Kim Harrison’s alias, so right there you know it’s awesome. I loved every minute of it – it was the the epitome of a “fun” read and it just kept getting better and better with each book. Read full review
