Ten Light and Fun Books That May Make You Laugh

Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by the wonderful The Broke and The Bookish. This week’s list are our top ten books that will make you laugh or at least chuckle! I don’t often laugh out loud at books, so I decided to go for light and fun reads which will probably raise a smile! Here are the books that I have picked!

(Book images go to Goodreads)

The Undomestic Goddess- Sophie Kinsella

The Undomestic Goddess

Sophie Kinsella’s writing can always make me smile. Mostly because some of what her characters get up to is utterly ridiculous. Sophie’s books are great for something light and fun. They don’t take too much concentration yet they’re interesting enough to capture your attention.

Adorkable- Sarra Manning

Adorkable

I enjoyed this book. It’s light, fun and easy to read. It was another one that made me smile!

Going Vintage- Lindsey Leavitt

Going Vintage

This is another great light read. It’s got some fantastic characters and a relatable plot. It’s about young people reliant on modern technology!

Geek Girl- Holly Smale

Geek Girl (Geek Girl, #1)

Geek Girl is such a great series. I think it’s very feel good. As the series progresses it’s definitely developing much more depth. I love how it embraces geekiness!

A Sudden Crush- Camilla Ilsey

A Sudden Crush

This book is perfect for fans of women’s fiction (okay chick-lit!)  It’s so easy to read.

The Fill In Boyfriend- Kasie West

The Fill-In Boyfriend

If you’re looking for a light, fluffy, contemporary read then Kasie West is a perfect choice.

Since You’ve Been Gone- Morgan Matson

Since You've Been Gone

This book has its sad moments, but mainly it just made me feel warm and fluzzy. We all want that!

The Break Up Artist- Philip Siegel

The Break-Up Artist (Break-up Artist, #1)

I adored this book. I wasn’t expecting to. To be honest, I thought it would be super cheesy, but it wasn’t! It’s light and fun to read.

The Boy In The Dress- David Walliams

The Boy in the Dress

I was pleasantly surprised by this book, which I recently read for part of the kid-lit challenge that I do with my sister Beth. The comparisons to Roald Dahl are utterly justified in my opinion. This book warmed my heart and made me smile!

Born Weird- Andrew Kaufman

Born Weird

This is SUCH a strange book, but well worth exploring. It’s better not knowing a lot about it before you read it.

Ten Books To Read If You’re In The Mood For A Light Read

Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by the wonderful The Broke and The Bookish. This week’s list are ten recommendations to read if you’re in the mood for… I decided to go for a fun, light read. Sometimes we all need a bit of light reading in our lives!

As always, book images go to Goodreads!

The Undomestic Goddess- Sophie Kinsella

The Undomestic Goddess

I am a big fan of Sophie Kinsella’s standalone books. Her Shopaholic books are good too, but have got a little bit ridiculous in my eyes. This book is one of my favourites of hers. It follows our main protagonist as she makes a life changing decision!

Lucy In The Sky- Paige Toon

Lucy in the Sky

Paige Toon is one of my favourite authors. I do love her books. I love how her characters combine within her books.

Johnny Be Good- Paige Toon

Johnny Be Good (Johnny Be Good, #1)

This is the first Paige Toon book I read. I absolutely devoured it.

Chasing Daisy- Paige Toon

Chasing Daisy

I’m sorry, but I’m trying to convince you to read Paige Toon if you’re into lighter reads! 😉 It has more depth than you might expect.

Going Vintage- Lindsey Leavitt

Going Vintage

Cute and easy to read. I really liked this book!

The Book Of Tomorrow- Cecelia Ahern

The Book of Tomorrow

It couldn’t be a list like this without a Cecelia Ahern book. Her books are magical!

Magic Under Glass- Jackie Dolamore

Magic Under Glass (Magic Under, #1)

This story is so adorable and yet so underrated at the same time. It involves automatons, dancers and magic. Too cute!

Adorkable- Sara Manning

Adorkable

I was recommended this book by my good friend Luna. It is totally adorkable! 😉

The Selection- Kiera Cass

The Selection (The Selection, #1)

I’m not the biggest fan of this series, but it’s certainly light and easy to read.

You’re The One That I Want-Giovanna Fletcher

You're the One That I Want

Giovanna Fletcher is another wonderful writer with great relatable characters who are easy to read about.

Going Vintage

16133652

How did I get it?:
I bought it!

Synopsis:

When Mallory’s boyfriend, Jeremy, cheats on her with an online girlfriend, Mallory decides the best way to de-Jeremy her life is to de-modernize things too. Inspired by a list of goals her grandmother made in1962, Mallory swears off technology and returns to a simpler time (when boyfriends couldn’t cheat with computer avatars). The List:
1. Run for pep club secretary
2. Host a fancy dinner party/soiree
3. Sew a dress for Homecoming
4. Find a steady
5. Do something dangerous
But simple proves to be crazy-complicated, and the details of the past begin to change Mallory’s present. Add in a too-busy grandmother, a sassy sister, and the cute pep-club president–who just happens to be her ex’s cousin–and soon Mallory begins to wonder if going vintage is going too far.

Thoughts:

Going Vintage begins with Mallory finding out her boyfriend is cheating on her through an online relationship. She reads emails between him and the girl from Authentic Life which breaks her heart. Mallory decides to swear off all of modern technology after finding a list of her Grandma’s which makes Mallory think that her Grandma had a much simpler life as a teenager. The list becomes a guidance of what Mallory should be doing with her life.

I think this is a great idea for a story. Mallory finds out that being a teenager at any time is not easy regardless of technology. She also finds out how much she depends on modern technology. It really made me think about how reliant I am on modern technology. I’m lost without my phone or an internet connection.

I think the characters in this book were so believable. I really liked Mallory and her sister Ginnie. I loved their relationship.

Going Vintage is a fun and easy read and at times, very poignant. It’s well worth checking out!

Would I recommend it?:
Of course!
