TOP TEN BOOKS THAT ARE BOTH LIGHT AND FUN
Summer is on it's way. There is no better feeling than marching off to the beach with a fun and pleasant read. Here are my top picks:
TEN THINGS WE DID AND PROBABLY SHOULDN'T HAVE by Sarah Mlynowski
If given the opportunity, what sixteen-year-old wouldn't jump at the chance to move in with a friend and live parent-free? Although maybe "opportunity" isn't the right word, since April had to tell her dad a tiny little untruth to make it happen.
LOLA AND THE BOY NEXT DOOR by Stephanie Perkins
Budding costume designer Lola lives an extraordinary life in San Francisco with her two Dads, and beloved dog, dating a punk rocker, but when the Bell twins return to the house next door Lola recalls both the friendship -- ending fight with Calliope, a figure skater, and the childhood crush she had on Cricket.
Seventeen-year-old Lila Beckwith's parents just left for vacation, and Lila's all set to throw the holiday party of the season. But when her Christmas-obsessed little brother, Cooper, discovers that global warming is melting the North Pole, he and his best friend, Tyler, take off on a runaway mission to save Santa. Lila has to get Cooper safely home before her parents get back on Christmas Eve. But the only person who can help her is Tyler's older brother, Beau -- a.k.a. Lila's musician, anti-everything ex-boyfriend.
THE QUEEN OF BABBLE by Meg CabotLizzie Nichols has a problem: she can't keep anything to herself. And when she opens her big mouth on a trip to London, her good intentions get her long-distance beau, Andrew, in major hot water. Now she's stuck in England with no boyfriend and no place to stay until the departure date on her nonrefundable airline ticket. Fortunately, Lizzie's best friend and college roommate, Shari, is spending her summer catering weddings in a sixteenth-century chateau in southern France. Can Lizzie figure out some way to use her big mouth to save the day or will she only make things worse?
Sixteen-year-old princess Talia persuades seventeen-year-old Jack, the modern day American who kissed her awake after a three hundred year sleep, to take her to his Miami home, where she hopes to win his love before the witch who cursed her can spirit her away.
Also absolutely anything from Sophie Kinsella!!!
