May 7: Top Ten Books When You Need Something Light & Fun

1. The Shopaholic series

Especially the first 3 books. They’re so funny and light, I really enjoy reading it when I just want to turn my brain off and relax. It does the job fantastically.

2. The Undomestic Goddess

Also by Sophie Kinsella about a high-powered lawyer who has a break down and flees to the country where she pretends to be someone else and takes a job as a maid even though she doesn’t know anything about cleaning or cooking

3. Remember me? 

Also by Sophie Kinsella. About a girl who lost 3 years of her memory after getting in a car accident. She thinks its 2004 when it’s actually 2007. She’s suddenly married to a rich, handsome guy and has a big career without knowing about any of it.

4. Can you keep a secret? 

Emma (he he he) is a young woman on her first professional business trip. On the way back the plane experiences some terrible turbulence and she accidentally blurts out all her secrets to the guy sitting next to her. Unfortunately that man turns out to be the top boss of her company.

5. The sisterhood of the travelling pants series

Four young girls spend the summer apart for the first time and decide to share a pair of jeans that they all magically fit despite having very different body shapes.

6. Marley & Me

Story about a crazy, excited, adorable, lovable Labrador and it’s owner.

7. Fast Women

Written by Jennifer Crusie about a recently divorced middle-aged woman going to work in a private detective agency.

8. The Devil Wears Prada

About a young woman wanting to be a journalist getting a job at a top fashion magazine.

9. The Nanny Diaries

About a young woman getting a job as a Nanny in Manhattan instead of getting a full-time job after getting her anthropology degree. Really relating to this one as I’m thinking of maybe getting an au-pair job in the US!

10. The Harry Potter Series

Not going to explain that one. I know HP so well I can pretty much read it without thinking about it at all.  Excellent relaxation material.

  1. Ooh Devil Wears Prada and The Nanny Diaries are totally fun. When I put out a call for comfort feel-good recs, HP was frequently mentioned. It is comforting to re-read a favorite series like that one. I need to check out a Kinsella book sometime.
    Fab list!

    1. They really are. They’re so great if you just want to relax and enjoy. Same goes for Sophie Kinsella, though. If you like girly and light you should definitely check it out 😀

    1. To be honest I still haven’t read ‘I’ve got your number’ but I’m curious about ‘Wedding Night’ as well. Twenties Girl wasn’t my favourite thought.. But still, can’t go wrong with Sophie!
