Top Ten Books When You Need Something Light & Fun

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly feature hosted by The Broke and The Bookish. I heart lists!

Erm.  Yeah, this isn't a great topic for me, because I'm not exactly a light and fun reader.  I read horror books for comfort!  But I'm going to try my hardest.

The Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight by Jennifer E. Smith

I loved this book almost purely because of the sweetness factor.  I loved how Oliver and Hadley met, but I also was pleasantly surprised that it ended up focusing more on family relationships.

Deadly Cool (Deadly Cool #1) by Gemma Halliday

This was one of the funniest YA books I've ever read - I loved Hartley's sense of humour and the fabulous one-liners.

Catching Jordan (Hundred Oaks #1) by Miranda Kenneally

I didn't love love love this book, but I enjoyed it way more than I thought I would.  There's also a few serious messages inside it's pages, but overall fun is definitely a word I'd use to describe Catching Jordan.

Anything by Marian Keyes

In my opinion, Marian Keyes is one of the best chick-lit writers ever - her characters are always fabulously awkward and so easy to relate to.

The Babylon books by Imogen Edwards-Jones

I love 'insider' type books, and Edwards-Jones' Babylon books look inside some fascinating industries, such as airlines, holiday resorts and hotels. 

Zombie Fun

I know to some people zombie books don't rate high on the fun radar, but I found all of these books fun and easy to read.

Z-Boat by Suzanne Robb

Zombies on a submarine?  This is one of the most unique setting ideas for a zombie book I've ever read, and it was like reading a screenplay.

Ushers, Inc by Rusty Fischer

Ushers, Inc is not just about zombies, but there's some awesomely fun ideas about paranormals and the monster hunters know some really obscure wrangling tricks.

BadAss Zombie Road Trip by Tonia Brown

The words Zombie and Road-Trip are two that immediately grab my attention, and combined with a wickedly funny Satan this book was a huge amount of fun.

Can You Survive the Zombie Apocalypse by Max Brallier

I was absolutely obsessed with Choose Your Own Adventure books as a kid, so when I found this adult version with zombies, I was so excited!  And it was so much fun combining one of my childhood favourites with zombies!

So Now You're a Zombie: A Handbook for the Newly Undead by John Austin

A short book, but so entertaining - part survival guide, part zombie perspective, it's full of diagrams and witty remarks about surviving as a zombie.

Yay I found ten, with the help of a little creative license!  What are your favourite fun reads?


  1. Ushers Inc sounds interesting, I'll definitely have to keep my eye out for that at the library.

    Great list!

    1. It's loads of fun - definitely worth tracking down!

  2. I feel so ashamed that I didn't put some fun zombie books on my list, like Jesse P's series! And a Rusty Fischer book or 5. SO SILLY OF ME. :P

  3. Lol, I think I cringed a little at seeing this weeks TTT title, because yeah, I like my books dark, lol. Nice list.

    1. It took me HOURS to do this list lol

  4. The last book on your list has definitely intrigued me, it sounds really fun. :D The Statistical Probability made my list too - such a cute book!

    My Top Ten

    1. I loved the mixture of survival guide / zombie perspective, and it made me laugh!

      TSPoLaFS is such a fun book!

  5. Statistical Probability made my list as well. I adore that book! I have Deadly Cool sitting around, so now I feel like I need to push it up the list. :)

    Great list!

    My Top Ten

    1. I wasn't sure about Deadly Cool when I bought it, but it was so funny!

  6. I didn't do one of these list but The Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight would DEFINITELY been on it. Such a sweet book. I need to find time to read Catching Jordan and the other books by that author too. :)
