Top Ten Tuesday: Top Ten Books When You Need Something Light & Fun

Top Ten Tuesday buttonTop Ten Tuesday is a weekly hosted by The Broke and Bookish. Every week the girls from the Broke and
Bookish come up with a subject and I will try to find 10 results combined with that weeks topic.

This weeks topic is interesting. I always pick the wrong books for this situation. Usually I look for books like this when I got a reading slump or go on holiday and have to share my reading time with doing fun things. For example (and people familiar with the books will know this is not really the right choice) I brought the Matthew Shardlake series by C.J. Sansom on holiday last year. Interesting but not really light reading.

My light and fun picks and go to books are the following
  • Anything by Elizabeth George (guess my loyal followers did not see that coming eh)
  • Anything by John Sandford 
  • Rebecca by Daphe du Marier
  • My favorite childhood books by Thea Beckman 
  • The Historian by Elizabeth Kostova 
  • Harry Potter
  • Those cheap cosy mystery books you pick up at the supermarket

 If I really need something light and fun and I reread my books.

Ha ha, I love seeing dark and mysterious books on your light and fun reading list! I had to really hunt to find "fun" books that I've read.

I never thought of HP as "light" reading, but after seeing it on all kinds of lists today, I realize that there are lots of light, fun moments in the books that balance out the darker scenes. I agree with Jessica - "HP will always be the perfect read for any occasion!" So true.

I wouldn't call most of these 'light', but definitely agree with re-reading old favourites!

I've said it before, but I do love Rebecca. However, I have to disagree with The Historian being a light read :(
