Top Ten Tuesdays is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and The Bookish
- Harry Potter series, J.K. Rowling: I’ve come back to these books for the fourth time this year, an impulse I get occasionally when I’ve read too many books that I don’t like. I know what to expect, and I know that the audio versions narrated by Jim Dale will be entertaining and fun.
- Myron Bolitar series, Harlan Coben: It was a glorious day when I convinced my best friend to read these books, which feature sports agent Myron Bolitar and his best friend Windsor Lock-Horne III. If quoting books about best friends with your best friend isn’t light and fun, I don’t know what is.
- Anyone But You by Jennifer Crusie: Here’s a secret: I really enjoy romance novels. I don’t read many of them because while I’d rather read lesbian romance novels, they are too often, uh, miserable. So occasionally I’ll listen to romance fans and pick up a heterosexual romance. This Crusie novel reads like a smart romantic comedy film and it made me really happy. (Bonus for featuring an old dog who doesn’t die!)
- Emma by Jane Austen: I didn’t expect Emma to be my favorite Austen novel, so it managed to surprise me when I giggled all through the book and had a really fun time.
- Fool by Christopher Moore: I really enjoy humorous footnotes and reinterpretations of literary characters, and Fool goes above and beyond in delivering them.
- The Godfather by Mario Puzo: You should really listen to the full cast audio book version of this. It’s like listening to the movie on the radio.
- Suite Scarlett by Maureen Johnson: So. Much. Fun.
- Land’s End: A Walk In Provincetown by Michael Cunningham: I lived and worked in Provincetown for a summer, and reading Cunningham’s little memoir about the town is almost like being there.
