(Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme brought to you by The Broke and the Bookish.)
It’s been a crazy few weeks, and the last thing I’m in the mood for is a serious, heavy read. Here’s the books I pick up when I want something light and wonderful.
- The Masqueraders (Georgette Heyer) – The intrigue! The secret love! The Regency awesomeness of it all!
- The Grand Sophy (Georgette Heyer) – Noticing a pattern yet?
- Heat Wave (Richard Castle) – A nice mystery with a good combo of grit, humor, and sex.
- Cheaper by the Dozen (Frank Gilbreth, Jr. and Ernestine Gilbreth Carey) – Funny and lovely with some truly sweet moments.
- The Boxcar Children (Gertrude Chandler Warner) – I read these books as a kid, and going back through them makes me feel nostalgic and happy.
- Northanger Abbey (Jane Austen) – Nothing like a character who blows everything way out of proportion to make you feel better!
- Right Ho, Jeeves (P.G. Wodehouse) – All kinds of silly.
- Oink! My Life with Mini-Pigs (Matt Whyman) – No matter what you’re dealing with, it’s probably not as ridiculous as having two pigs in your kitchen.
- Let’s Pretend This Never Happened (Jenny Lawson) – Hilarious! Plus, makes you realize that there’s a family out there that is genuinely weirder than yours.
- Saranormal: Ghost Town (Phoebe Rivers) – Nice MG fiction with a great main character.
What do you read when you need something light and delicious?
