TTT: Top Ten Light and Fluffy Reads

TTT Top Ten Tuesday The Book Wars

TTT is a meme by The Broke and the Bookish and this week’s topic was supposed to be about audiobooks, but since most of us haven’t been listening to all that many audiobooks, I picked an older topic. Summer may be over, but light-hearted reads aren’t seasonal IMO. Here are some of our picks:

  1. The Demon’s Lexicon by Sarah Rees Brennan: I don’t know why I feel like this was light and fluffy? It was fantasy and adventure and kind of angsty? But I breezed through this series and I still remember it fondly. I think that’s reason enough for me to include it in this list.
  2. To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before by Jenny Han: I wouldn’t categorize the sequel as light and fluffy, but this one definitely was IMHO. Usually, romance makes me kind of nervous because I keep rooting for the wrong ships, but this one worked out nicely.
  3. Everything Leads to You by Nina LaCour: I am honestly shocked that I haven’t read more by LaCour. She writes beautifully and this novel in particular is like a warm hug.
  4. The Turtles of Oman by Naomi Shihab Nye: Sure it made me homesick, but I still enjoyed it. Stories that are rooted in a specific place–especially one that I’ve been to–are relaxing to read, I feel.
  5. Gotham Academy, Vol. 1: Welcome to Gotham Academy by Becky Cloonan, Brenden Fletcher, and Karl Kerschl: Despite being set in Gotham city and being a mystery/adventure kind of story, I felt very at ease with the characters and the way their story progressed. Definitely the kind of book I’d take to the beach. :)

So, there’s not really any rhyme or reason to these books – they’re just books that make me feel good when I read them, books that make me happy!
