A weekly meme hosted by the Broke and the Bookish
Hey look! I’m back! I’ve missed doing this meme, and finally my life is calmer down a bit, so I have time to pick it up again!
This weeks topic is books for when you’re craving something light and fun!
Of Poseidon by Anna Banks
Ohmysweetgoodness this book is awesome! It’s the perfect beach read! Besides being about freakin’ mermaids, it’s short and fun. You’re guaranteed to enjoy it. And there are hot mermen, if I haven’t convinced you.
Paranormalcy by Kiersten White
What can I say about this book? It’s full of clever humor and romance (which keeps getting better (and funnier) in the other books) that will make you snort and swoon all at once!
Don’t Expect Magic by Kathy McCullough
What would you do if you were a rebellious teen and just found out that your celebrity-therapist of a dad is a fairy godmother? It’s a recipe for ridiculous!
Tuesdays at the Castle by Jessica Day George
When I first heard about this, it was being pitched as Hogwarts meets Home Alone, and I was sold. It’s exciting and funny, and a perfect Middle-Grade fantasy!
Cloaked by Alex Flinn (or anything else by Alex Flinn)
Alex Flinn writes books that are a good mix between light and dark. They have good lessons in them, but also lots of crazy fun. Cloaked, I think, is a perfect example of that.
The Selection by Kiera Cass
This book is exactly like The Hunger Games…except that there’s no death. And there are poofy dresses everywhere. And the closest you come to a dystopian government is a caste system and no history books. This is one you’ll either love or hate, but there’s no denying that there’s some sweet drama!
My Fair Godmother by Janette Rallison (well, anything by Janette Rallison)
I love Janette Rallison so so so much! Her books are the definition of fluff. But not in a bad way. They’re perfect for cheering you up and feeling grateful for your problems, which are nothing compared to what her characters face!
Heist Society by Ally Carter
This is a kick-butt spy story that’s a good mix of fluff and deep-ish stuff. But for the most part it’s just non-stop fun!
Also Known As by Robin Benway
Exactly the same as above! Also Known As has all the fun and espionage of Heist Society, but in a different light.
Going Vintage by Lindsey Leavitt
What happens when a stubborn girl who’s sick of technology decides to live like its 1962? A whole lot of crazy! I was laughing like crazy as I read this, but it also has a couple good, deeper bits as well.
